    the casing that the board is in doesnt make any difference. youd need to actually check out the boards themselves. most likely take them to ford and get it reprogrammed or have someone here help you like [MENTION=11896]ttocs[/MENTION] or [MENTION=20210]lwarrior1016[/MENTION]. also keep in mind that our cars are old so the keyless entry will only work from such a distance

    the only ways I have found to increase range is to first replace the battery in the transmitter, 2nd touch it to your chin when you push it(funny but true) or check the antenna. I have no idea where the antenna is, your chin is always available just make it look like your scratching it, and the battery is simple too.

    As for the one not programming they made a couple of different series that were all wrapped with the same remote skin. Check to see if the FCC stuff is the same but more then likely you need a different series remote.

    Its too funny, I just programed new remotes for my wife's excursion last night.

    Scott's got this area more than covered, ill just sit back and make funny comments.

    Whats the bet that the OP doesnt come back? Or if he does, its only for one or two more posts.
