key fob wont program

I tried to program a key fob myself. It goes into program mode ie, doors lock or unlock whatever it does, but wont actually program the fob. So I take it to the dealer and they say the exact same thing. Anybody ever have the same problem, and if so how did you fix it.

no. they just said they couldn't get it to program either. He said he's never seen that before. I bought the truck used, and the guy did not turn the fob into the dealership, so I guess im out of luck

I am in the same boat right now - I even had a ser. advisor give it a try with no luck - swapped it out at the parts dept. with a new one and still nothing? I am wondering if disconnecting the batteries will reset anything and possibly it will program then? Other than that I don't know what to do or try.

I had the same problem. took it to the dealership in town and they had to hook it up and change the VIN to one with a key fob from the factory.

I tried over the weekend disconnecting the batteries hoping that by doing so something would reset - no luck. Going to take it to Ford sometime this week and see if they have any ideas.
