Programming 2015 Ford Edge Intelligent Access Fob

Recommended Posts

Hey guys. I am trying to reprogram a IA Fob for my 2015 Edge. i lost the second fob and had the dealer replace it wish a new fob. My service advisor told me that if we found the lost fob, I can reprogram it since they deleted the information on the car for the lost fob.

I've been looking at the manual for reprogramming the IA fob but I cant seem to find the "backup slot". Any one have and ideas or programmed a fob by themselves?!

Check out page 72 in the owners manual. (Back of center console).

That's what I have been doing but I still cant seem to figure it out. I know on some other Ford's there is an actual slot where the fob sits in. the only thing in the center console that I'm finding is on the bottom, there's a weirdly shaped grove. I have tried placing the fob in that grove and following the programming steps but I have been unsuccessful.

It's on the inside back wall of the center console.

 

Did you see the picture in the OM?

Ummmm, after looking at page 72, I believe that it's actually on the inside "front" of the compartment. Do you see a slot on the inside front of the compartment?

enigma-2 you are correct, it's on the front inside under the 12V plug. You can feel it with your hand but can't really see it. here's a picture:

I did find this at first. I tried following the steps to program the fob but it hasnt worked. I will give it a try again and see what happens. If not I'll have to go into the dealer and see what's up. Thanks a lot guys!

Believe the buttons on the remote, must face the back of the car.

Okay I've got the fob programmed! Thanks for all who helped. Seems like you have to time it perfectly as well when pushing the ignition button and rotating the fobs

If you translate the position indicated in the manual to the actual position in the car, vertical to horizontal, I would say the keys on the fob should be facing up.

that's correct, the fob is actually facing up not to the back of the car.

It's a wonderful anyone can figure it out. Here's how it reds "With the buttons facing the rear of your vehicle and the key ring up, place the intelligent access key into the backup slot."

 

Glad you figured it out.

Used the documented procedure from manual to find the default keyless code by using both fobs.

Found that, the correct fob position is "buttons up" and key ring facing the rear - if looking into the image from post #6, the void in the backup slot for the ring is perfectly visible, so that position did work for me.

Another thing is that I've put the actual keys into each fob just to have fobs ready for 'manual' operation.

(did not try if "buttons down" does work as well :) )

I tried to program a new key using the OM process and still have had no luck. Also tried to display the original code for the keypad with no luck.

Any suggestions?

I just complete programming a fob using the procedure in the manual. Took at least 6 times before it worked. I finally set a clock with a second hand on the dash so I could get the timing just right.

I finally had success with programming and displaying keypad code. I turned the "Easy Entry" feature off and swapped the keys out as quickly as I could. After the final step in the programming sequence, the door locks clicked to indicate sucess. I think the manual should read "no more than 5 seconds" instead of "wait 5 seconds"

Does anyone know if it's possible to use the older style key fob for the 2015-2016 ford edges? I came out of a 2013 lease into a 2016 and I prefer the key I had before.

 

This one is a lot bigger and isn't very comfortable in my pocket, plus I've had unlock/lock buttons activate by mistake from just being in my pocket and pressure being applied.

Probably not possible, and if I recall correctly, at least for the fobs with remote start, the frequency is different.

Indeed!  All other instructions stated "wait 5 seconds"... I tried that several times and failed miserably!

 

Finally did as you suggested... NO WAITING...Just do it as fast as you can, and voila!  SUCCESS AT LAST!!
