    Hi All newbie so go easy please

    I’ve got a focus estate 2007 ex police dog van,

    When bought car only came with standard key the car has central locking

    I got the a key smith to cut and code/programme a new key and fob but when he tried to sync to the car thru the usual sync method it wouldn’t pair,

    My questions are could the reciever have been disabled by the police ?

    And does anyone know the location of the reciever from online search’s it’s apparently in the drivers footwell but I can’t find it I even unscrewed part of the dash trim but can’t locate it

    Ford Focus

    1.9 diesel

    Many thanks in advance for any help

    What method did you use to sync the key? Was it the one where you turn ign on and off four times and then hold both buttons in?

    Yes mate is there any other method ? I’m trying to locate the Siemens box to try unplug it for an hour as I’ve read this resets but can’t find the box

    I've had problems with that in the past and finally got it right after several tries. How about trying a hard reset - disconnect both battery terminals and connect the cables together for 10 minutes to completely remove any residual charge in any of the systems - that will be the same as disconnecting the Siemens box.

    Many thanks Motman

    Do you mean connect the + & - cables together after disconnecting from battery ?

    atually found out the car didn’t have a module !! I’ve got working module of ebay, but still no joy, don’t suppose you know if it would need pairing or configuring to work ?
