Thumbs up Key FOB Programming Success in 2012

Greetings all,
Just confirming the successful programming instructions for my 2003 EB Expedition 4X4 in June of 2012.
1) Have your remotes with you.
2) Enter the vehicle and close all doors
3) Lock and unlock using the door/window control panel (driver's left)
4) Insert key into ignition lock
5) Rapidly rotate the key from off to run (max turn w/o starting) 8 times
within 10 seconds.
You will hear/see the locks engage and disengage
6) Press the lock button on the first FOB to be programmed.
You will hear the locks cycle.
7) Press the lock button on the next FOB to be programmed.
Again, you hear the lock cycle to confirm.
8) Repeat step 7 up to a maximum of four remotes
9) Turn the ignition to off position for a final confirmation of success.
Oh, prior to starting the process, I started the vehicle and turned off everything I could, e.g., A/C, radios, other electronics, etc. to avoid possible surges from damaging relays...blah blah blah. After several attempts using other failed programming methods, I sat listening to the A/C firing up at each rapid turn of the key thinking; oh boy, I can just see A/C and other relays freaking out and getting fried. Just my emotional issue; but it can't hurt. I did not need to discon the vehicle's battery.
Anyway, I ran the above instructions twice to confirm their accuracy.
They're good-2-go (at least for my machine).
Enjoy!
mike

Tried it all

Hi - I have a '97 expedition that originally came with remote entry, but doesn't have it now. The procedure for the '97 (only) that I got from the company where I got the remotes, says the sequence is 5 turns to Run instead of 8, but I have tried both 5 and 8. I have checked the connections to the RKE box (they're connected), and I have disconnected the battery for several minutes, and turned off all accessories. I'm glad there were all of these other things to try, but I still don't have remotes that work. The truck doesn't enter programming mode. The locks function correctly otherwise. Any new suggestions?

The same problem.

My 2005 Excursion also refuses to enter programing mode. I tried to turn OFF - ON 7,8,9 times, slow and fast, also tried to disconnect the battery and to lock/unlock doors while doors open/closed, also tried to unlock by code.

I suppose I tried all the tricks that are posted without positive result.

Any idea where´s the catch?

Finally, turn the key to the off position and your key fob(s) should be programed. The dealer was of no real help on this, unfortunately. I hope this helps some folks out! Good luck!
This is the only to program my remotes for the 03 F350. I finaly got in, locked the doors and unlocked them with door lock switch. This made the difference.

truck will not enter programming mode

None of these solutions work for me. I am having the same problem where I cannot access the fob programming mode at all. I've made sure the box thingy under the dash is plugged in. I've locked then unlocked the doors before and after putting the key in the ignition. I've disconnected and reconnected the battery then tried it. I've turned the ignition slowly and quickly. Absolutely nothing is working to get it into programming mode. An aftermarket security system has never been installed. I am so frustrated. My username couldn't be truer. Please, anyone help me!

It's possible the keyless entry module is bad.

I really hope not. The keypad under the exterior door handle works fine. Would that confirm the correct operation of the keyless entry module or does that have nothing to do with it?
