Keyless entry question

I just picked up a new truck, it had some BS factory security system on it that I took out of the truck. It says Ford on the module box thing. I'm wondering if that had anything to do with the keyless entry. Prior to tearing it out the key fob wouldn't unlock the doors. Now that its out, I replaced the battery in it and it still won't work.

And when I cycle the key 7-12 times it doesn't lock or unlock the doors. Did that security system have anything to do with the key fob?

Re: Keyless entry question

No it was separate from the GEM module. I think I got it figured out now though. I re installed the security system module from ford, without the alarm portion of it and the locks are working properly now.

Thanks Andy!

Re: Keyless entry question

Those factory alarms and keyless modules are made by codealarm and they SUCK.

Re: Keyless entry question

How can you increase the distance with the remote? I've replaced the battery and you still have to be with in ten feet for it to work
