I got a new key fob from a work van it was an 09 E150 and I want to know of its possible to reprogram it to work with my 10 Scab. Has anybody done something like this or is it possible. If so what did you have to do.

Thanks guys

There should be instructions in your owners manual. I havent done it in a few years, but its as simple as pressing the lock/unlock buttons inside driver door a special "pattern".

Im not sure if the truck will recognize the frequency, but its worth a shot to try, only takes a minute.

I've read about it in the manual. The dealer did one for me by pushing a couple buttons and turning the ignition key on and off like 10 times.

Try cycling the key on/off 8 times with the 8th time ending in the on position.

The door locks should cycle up and down to indicate you are in learn mode.

Press any button on the new remote to program to vehicle (locks should cycle to confirm program). If you have other remotes program them at this time too.

This works on quite a few Ford vehicles, give it a try.

You have the lock and unlock the doors with the power switch on the door and cycle the key from off to run eight time ending in the run position and the doors with lock and unlock by themselves and the you can program it by pressing the lock or unlock button on the fob.

Thumbs up

Thanks for posting this. My truck didn't have the manual when I bought it, this process works. I programmed my two spare key fobs.
