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.

On your 99 model the module is located behind the left quarter trim panel,mid-way.You maybe able to see it by removing the speaker cover or the cupholder on top. The module will have a sticker with a 5 digit code.
On the 04 the model is behind the right quarter trim panel toward the front about even with the right rear door stricker.

Open the glove box. On the sides of the glove box you will see 2 tabs pull them to open the box all the way. When you have that open there is a black computer with info printed on it. The code is there.

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.
Now that you’ve got the code I’ll tell you how to use the Keyless entry and set-up your own code.Make sure when pressing the controls on the keyless entry keypad you press the middle of the buttons to ensure good contact with the controls.
Check this for Programing the Keypad.
Hope this help (remember rated this comment).
