From this link-
These instructions will work on Sable models, 93 - 95:
Turn ignition to RUN or ACC. Momentarily jump pins in programming connector located in LR quarter panel area. All doors will lock then unlock to confirm programming mode. Press any button on 1st transmitter. Door locks will cycle to confirm programming. Press any button on 2nd transmitter (up to 4 transmitters total possible). Turn ignition to OFF. Locks will again cycle to indicate end of programming mode.
These instructions will work on Sable models 96 - 97:
Cycle ignition from OFF to RUN 5 times within 10 seconds, ending in RUN. All doors will lock then unlock to confirm programming mode. Press any button on 1st transmitter. Door locks will cycle to confirm programming. Press any button on 2nd transmitter (up to 4 transmitters total possible). Turn ignition to OFF. Locks will again cycle to indicate end of programming mode.
Hope it works for you!

Remote Keyless Entry Transmitter Reprogramming
1. Locate the 2-pin RKE programming connector. Refer to RKE Programming Connector Location list below.
2. Turn ignition switch to the RUN position.
3. Using a jumper wire or alligator clip momentarily short the two terminals within the 2-pin program connector. On Econoline models you will need to short these terminals for the duration of the reprogramming procedure. The doors will lock then unlock on all models except Contour and Mystique. On Contour and Mystique models only the horn will sound and the exterior lights will flash.
4. Press any button on the remote keyless entry transmitter. All doors will lock then unlock to verify transmitter has been programmed. The horn will sound and the exterior lights will flash on the Contour and Mystique.
NOTE: Programming in the first transmitter will erase all other previously programmed transmitters. All transmitters that are to operate with the vehicle (up to four transmitters) must be programmed during Steps 4 and 5.
5. Repeat Step 4 for any additional remote transmitters to be reprogrammed.
6. Turn ignition switch OFF. All doors should lock then unlock. On Contour and Mystique models the horn will sound and the exterior lights will flash.
7. Remove short (Econoline models only).
8. Install any trim previously removed.
9. Verify transmitter operation.
RKE Programming Connector Location
The Two-Pin RKE Programming Connector Is Located;
Taurus/Sable Wagons - behind the left side trim panel inside the cargo area. Remove the trim panel for access to the connector.
Taurus/Sable Sedans - Under the left side of the package tray.
