The codes are on the keyless entry module, it is a tag. The module is behind the rear driver side interior quarter panel trim panel, that is the huge cover on the rear deck over the weheel whell humps. It is at the front near the roof "B" pillar.

Hi Joe:
You can use the keyless entry keypad to Lock or unlock the doors without using a key.
Open the liftgate window. Activate or deactivate the autolock feature.

This code is located on the owner's wallet card in the glove box, is available from your authorized dealer via scan code or is marked on the computer module.

Computer Module location
1995 thru 2001 is located in the jack storage compartment in the rear of your Explorer. First remove the panel to the jack storage compartment. Towards the front of this area you should see a metal box this is your auto-lock module (way up front next to your rear left passenger seat - Image 01). On the back side of this is your 5 digit code factory preset code (Image 02). It is hard to get to. To see it you will have to loosen, pull, use a flashlight or a mirror but it can be done.

Cannot open drivers door of my 1996 honda crv automatic using key or from inside. having to climb over from passenger side to drive and get out again.

Sue we arn't talking keyless entrey here .
Then if the key works in the other locks it must be good not worn out .
Witch leaves the lock cylinder on the drivers door or the mechinizam that moves the rods inside of the door to lock and unlock it .
Dose the key feel like it fits ok and the lock turn normally .If so that leaves the mechinizam inside the door .
Its not the end of the world likely something popped off or a little plastic clip broke that holds the rod in place .
The door needs to be taken apart from the inside witch means it needs to be open to repair .Its like a caught 22 can't fix it unless its open but can't open it .
There are ways slim jim or the old coat hanger way if you can roll the window down think about it do a little reserach it can be opened with out distroying the door

Where is the door code for my 2005 ford 500 so I can reset it

Your door code should be on a sticker inside the trunk lid. That's where Ford put it on my several different models.

My keyless entrey will not work has new battery?

Hi, please try reprogramming the fob using these procedures, and thankd for using FixYa:
Close all doors
2. Insert key into ignition
3. Hold down the power UNLOCK button on the driver's door panel, continue to hold down
until instructed to release in step 9.

4. Perform steps 5 through 8 in a fairly rapid succession.
5. Turn the ignition to the ON position (as far as you can go without starting the engine.)
6. Turn the ignition to the OFF position.
7. Turn the ignition to the ON position (as far as you can go without starting the engine.)
8. Turn the ignition to the OFF position.
9. Release the power UNLOCK button on the door panel. The vehicle should respond by
door locks locking and unlocking automatically. (If locks do not cycle after you let go,
not before you let go of the unlock button, then the vehicle has not entered programming
mode and you must start procedure over. Remove key from ignition, open drivers door
and return to step 1 ). If the locks do cycle automatically then proceed to step 10.

10. Hold down the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on the remote until the doors lock and
unlock. This may take up to 30 seconds.

11. Repeat step 10 NOW for each additional remote. (Including any existing remotes).
12. Turn the ignition to the ON position to exit the programming mode.
13. Test remote(s).

this from the owners manual
Programming your own personal entry code
To program your own code:
1. Enter factory set code (keypad will illuminate when pressed).
2. Press 1/2 control within five
seconds of step 1.
3. Enter your personal 5 digit code.
Enter each digit within five seconds
of previous one.
Do not set a code that includes five
of the same number or presents
them in sequential order. Thieves
can easily figure out these types of codes.
Your personal code does not replace the permanent code that the
dealership gave you. You can use either code to unlock your vehicle. If a
second personal code is entered, the module will erase it in favor of the
new code.
If you wish to erase your personal code, use the following instructions:
1. Enter factory set code.
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0
Controls and features
2. Press 1/2 control within five
seconds of step one.
3. Press 7/8 control and 9/0 control
at the same time within five seconds
of step 2.
The system will now only respond
to the factory set code.
Unlocking the doors with the keyless entry system
To unlock the driver door, enter either the factory set code or the
personal code (each digit must be pressed within five seconds of the
prior digit). The interior lamps will also illuminate.
To unlock all doors, enter the factory set code or personal code (driver
door unlocks) and press the 3/4 control within five seconds.
Locking the doors with the keyless entry system
It is not necessary to enter the factory or personal code prior to locking
all doors. To lock the doors:
² Press the 7/8 control and the 9/0 control at the same time.
