January 8, 2003Does anyone know why ford alarms and key fobs only work when your about 10 feet away? My wife's mountaneer works so well that I was joking with her and said I was going to set the alarm off when we were on the ferris wheel 2 blocks away and it worked.

March 7, 2003My factory keyless in my '01 SCrew works at a good distance. I've heard of some that do not. No idea what the difference is, though. It seems that they should all be about the same.
September 4, 2003well it very well could be where the antenna for the alarm is mounted. some are on the front window, some are in the roof, while others are in the dash, so it kinda depends on where the antenna is mounted and the obstructions in its way.
July 3, 2012Is there a way to tell if yor truck has the option for the remote key fob to open the doors. My 98 scab is labeled as an XLT and I have tried without success doing the programming mode. Does this mean I don`t have the option installed or is something broke and can be fixed?
