Question about 1993 Ford Explorer Limited

1 Answer

1993 ford explorer

We have a key code for the door key pad, however when we go to put in the code the keypad should aluminate, right? But it don't. We still punch in the code that is taped to the gray box, but nothing happens. No aluminated light, no activation sound....nothing. Could it be a fuse??? And if so, which fuse is it. I looked in the manual and seen all the listed fuses but none said keyless entry or anything like that. Please advise me on what I can do to make the keyless entry pad on the door work.

Door key pad coad. where is it

How to find the Security Keyless Keypad Code on the 1995-2001 Ford Explorer or Mountaineer and how to use the Keypad functions. The factory code is also printed on a label which is installed on the Remote Anti-theft Personality (RAP) Module. This is the module that controls the keyless entry system. It is located in the left rear quarter behind the removable panel (see photo).


You will need to turn the two thumb screws counter clockwise and take the plastic panel off to be able to see the unit. A flashlight may be helpful in seeing the code. You are looking for the module and the 5 digit code on it like the one shown below.

Hope helps (remember to rate and comment this).

How do i reset my key pad on the drivers door on a 1998 ford explorer?

Do you have the code (sequence of numbers) for the lock? If not, you will not be able to change the lock code on the keypad without assistance from the Ford dealership. If you do then the owners manual gives step by step instructions. If you need an owners manual I can help with those instructions. Some vehicles have a card tucked up under the dash with the "code" for the locks from when the vehicle was first sold. I would look for that if you don't have the lock code.

I have the right code for key pad on 05 explorer

When you start the proces of inputing the code, does the keypad light? If not then go to the fuse panel. In the owner's manual there is a chart of the fuse locations and uses, try that first.

Need factory code for keyless entry pad

To locate the original keypad code, open the passenger/rear door. Pull the on-body rubber weatherstrip out, around the rear side of the door closure. Fold the right/rear seatback down into the locked position to facilitate access to the right/rear seat belt anchor. Carefully pry the upper plastic panel that houses the height adjuster and seat belt anchor off the body taking care not to damage the panel. Now pry the lower panel outward just far enough to enable access to the Vehicle Security Module, where you'll see three electrical connectors plugged into it, coloured green, grey, and blue. On the module will be a series of digits on a label similar to 5L2T-15K602-EA. Beside those digits are five numbers. Those five numbers are the keyless entry keypad code.

I need to reprogram 2008 Ford Escape Key-pad.

u can try this, it is for an explorer but should be the same.
This information will be in your owners manual I think. 1. Type in the code you got when you purschased the vehicle 2. After typing in the code press "1" on the keypad 3. Enter in your new code 4. The doors should lock and unlock if this is done correctly
