If you don't know the master code, this will save you paying the dealer to find it for you without accessing the rap module to get the code.

Same procedure whether keyed or push button.
Push Start Button (Dont start it)
1 Have both keys available
2 place one key in the slot at the front inside center console
3 Press start lto turn on ignition and leave on for 4 seconds (Don't start engine)
4 Press the start button again to turn off ignition
5 Insert second key in same slot
6 Repeat steps 2, 3 and 4.
Master code is displayed in cluster.

Same if you have a key, turn key to ignition.

3 Press start leave on for 4 seconds (Don't start engine)
How will you do that without starting the engine?
4 Turn off ignition
How do you turn ignition off if it was never started?

Press the start button, which turns on the ignition. Wait for 4 seconds then press start again to turns off ignition.
Repeat with other key fob or key...

Pressing the start button, turns on ignition and powers up the car, the same as turning the ignition key to the ign or first position.
Pressing the start button again turns off the ignition, same as turning to key back to removal position.
If you start it, it won't work.

It worked fine for me. Before you turn on the ignition without starting the car are you putting the fob in the slot inside the center console. Maybe try it making sure the buttons face forward.
The code is also written on the rap model. Not sure where it's located but under the dash somewhere.

Car off, key in slot inside the center console at the front
Press button to just turn on ignition light
Leave on for at least 4 seconds
Press button to turn off ignition light
Insert 2nd fob in same slot
Press button
Leave on for 4 seconds

Code should be shown in display on cluster info screen. DON'T TURN IGNITION OFF WHEN 2ND FOB IS IN SLOT. If you do it's out of program mode.

Maybe make sure each fob is away from the center console area when treading the gobs.

Friend it on my wife's mustang this morning and it worked on that too. Took 3 minutes.
