How to program ford key fob?

What should I do before paying a dealership to program a key fob for my car?

It is a rather complicated process for a beginner. I advise you to consult an expert or go ahead with a dealership.
However, if you still want to carry on and do it on your own, here’s what I recommend
1, Close all car doors only leaving the driver’s door open. Press the Unlock button on the driver’s door.
2. Turn your ignition on and off for about 8 rounds. During the 8th time, do not switch off the car, just let it run. Also, make sure that each round lasts for about 10 seconds.
3. On the Ford key fob, press any button and repeat again after 8 seconds.
4. To know that you are successful, the doors should lock and unlock again, confirming that the key fob has been programmed and is ready to use.
5. If you have another key fob, you can repeat step 3 again.
5. Turn off your ignition, and the locks will lock and unlock again, confirming the end of programming.

The process for programming a Ford key fob involves putting your car in programming mode and then signaling the car with the specific fob you want it to recognize. Here’s a general guide:

Close all the car doors, then open the driver’s side door and press the UNLOCK button.
Quickly turn the ignition from the OFF position to the RUN position eight times within ten seconds. Make sure the eighth and final turn lands on RUN.
If you’ve done this correctly, the car doors should lock and unlock automatically. This signifies you’ve entered programming mode.
Within 8 seconds of the doors locking and unlocking, press any button on the Ford key fob you want to program. The doors should lock and unlock again to confirm successful programming.
You can repeat steps 3 and 4 to program additional key fobs.
Finally, turn the ignition to the OFF position. The doors will cycle once more to confirm programming completion.
