A reader of my last blog entry on the 1-button Ford dealer-installed remote start system keyfob (link here) wrote to say that she has a Ford dealer-installed remote start system that also performs keyless entry functions and has a 6-button remote. She is correct. Ford offers at least 4 dealer-installed systems that we are aware of and for which Remotes Unlimited sells replacement remotes.
The 6-button remote she is referring to is Ford part 7L3Z-15K601-AA. Like the 1-button remote, it is made by Code Alarm (now Audiovox). The FCC ID on this keyfob is GOH-PCGEN2. Unlike the 1-button remote with FCC ID GOH-PCMINI, it does not have a Ford logo on the front, but it does say Ford on the back. This remote works with a dealer-installed system that combines keyless entry functions and the remote engine start capability.
There are two other Ford dealer-installed systems for which Remotes Unlimited sells replacement remotes. Both of them are 2-button remotes with a remote start button and a second button that has a find/panic icon on it. Obviously, the systems that use these remotes are also tied into the vehicle’s horn.
Be careful if you are buying a replacement car remote for a Ford vehicle with a dealer-installed system that uses one of these 2-button remotes. They look very similar but are not the same part. One has FCC ID ELVATRKC. The find/panic button on this remote is nearly rectangular (slightly trapezoidal) in shape. (See this remote here.)
The other 2-button remote has FCC ID H5OTR27. The find/panic button on this part is semi-circular in shape and the remote has an LED light on the front. (See this remote here.)
All of Ford’s dealer-installed systems are user programmable, so you will be able to program a new replacement remote without going to the dealership for assistance.
