Changed the battery in my key fob and now it doesn't work at all..

 

Owner's Manual says take to dealer for reprogramming.

 

Has anyone else had this problem and if so, did you find an easy solution?

So, it will not unlock / lock doors and not allow starting of vehicle?  Does the other FOB work?  If yes to both, my guess is you have a dead FOB (I assume you checked the new battery is good and inserted correctly) or it needs programmed.  I believe you need a to go to a dealer or I believe that there are "certified shops" that Ford was required to give access to their system for programming FOBs.

No issues when I changed the battery in my fob (other than getting the fob open; what a pain).

Just changed the battery in one of my fobs.  Worked fine.

I also changed batteries in my two fobs without problem (there was a good video how to do this on youtube).

 

I have a couple of questions about the Intelligent Access Key (IAK) and the relationship to 'MyKey': 

Is a 'MyKey' just a IAK fob but with some restrictions or is it an entirely different fob?

To get a MyKey for my daughter, do I have to get another fob and have it programmed for my car and then I can add the restrictions I want?

 

thanks

It's my understanding that each and every fob has a unique "address".  Thus the car can be programmed to impose certain restrictions based on the fob used.

 

If I'm right, this means that if you buy a new fob, the car will need to be programmed, or "trained," to recognize the new fob.  I wonder what the max number of fobs is and who does the "training"?  The dealer probably.

  1. "A maximum of 8 keys can be programmed into the vehicle."

At dealership yesterday, service manager says make sure not to program your main key to a MyKey as it cannot be reversed.

Yes it can dealer has to do it with IDS.
They wipe all keys and reprogram two keys.
