Re: Remote Entry key fob takes 10 clicks to unlock the doors
1. I did one better than replacing the batteries (which of course I did) by adding in some aftermarket remotes. The new, old, and the original key fobs all do the same thing. I am very, very confident that the remotes are not the problem. I just did the relearn procedure a few days ago with the eBay remotes and the old ones all active.
2. As for Bluetooth... no, there isn't usually any bluetooth things going on. I bought this truck and had problems long before Bluetooth was a thing, by the way.
When I bought the Excursion, I tested the remotes on the keys I was given and had problems, which is why the salesperson went inside to their fishbowl full of key fobs and grabbed some spares, trying to get me better ones, and set them up. He thought that the ones he swapped in were better, but the fobs aren't the problem. Something in the controller is not receiving all the time or the circuit that detects a paired remote has a glitch.
