How do you reprogram a FOB on a 1999 Taurus after the module had to be replaced?

Asked by Jul 22, 2013 at 10:58 PM about the 1999 Ford Taurus SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My tech, I am assuming, replaced my BCM because it was creating a parasitic drain on
my battery or it was the module under the dash.  Either way my FOB does not unlock or
lock the car doors.  I did try the turning the car on and off 8 times in 10 seconds to reset,
but nothing happened.  Can someone help me?

Take it back to your Tech and tell him that he didn't finish the job. He/she should have reprogrammed everything otherwise, how can the repair be verified? How can that tech be certain that a new BCM repaired anything if its operation was never fully confirmed?

Well, all I really asked him to do was to fix the parasitic drain. My car would not start after it sat overnight. He found the problem and replaced it for I thought was cheap. The part, diagnosis and labor under 200.00
