Security System in 98 Ford Explorer

Im beginning to think that my truck is possessed, lol.
The key pad on the drivers door is the only way the system doesnt start automatically locking and unlocking. Using my keyring buttons almost seem to confuse the system.
Does anyone know how to reprogram the key pad? I know going thru the jack compartment.

When i changed ignition on 2001 ford explorer I ended up having to replace steering column now it wont turn over & the anti theft light flashes & wont stop. what can be done to get car started?


At least you know the anti theft system is working. Jokes aside, I would think that the electronic security system is not recognising the new lock and steering column. You could try leaving the battery completely disconnected for at least 2 or 3 hours to see if the system resets. Reconnect the battery and then try again with the new key. You will have to put the security code back into your radio as well. If this doesn't work, it may need to go to a Dealer to reprogram your electronic system.

Lights and start


Sounds like an anti-theft issue. Make sure you are not using an aftermarket key. There is a technical service bulletin01-6-2 which pertains to the problem.

Sounds like you need to have the pass lock system checked. The light is suppose to flash when the theft system is armed but not stay on solid. It may not be activating the theft system

Why won't my 98 Ford explorer start? My theft


try using a spare key.

Either way if it starts or not with the spare key a trip to the ford dealer may be in your future. occasionally the security system will forget your keys. You can program them yourself but you will need two keys that work. If you have two keys that work let me know and I'll let you know how do do it.

If you do not have two keys that work than the ford dealer will have to reprogram your keys into the security system.

When the battery is charged, you may be able to disarm the system by locking and unlocking the drivers door with the key.

How do you re-program the security code on a 2007


FORD KEY PADS
  • Enter permanent factory code
  • Press the 1/2 button within 5 seconds to enter programming mode
  • Within 5 seconds enter new code, doors will lock, unlock to verify code, this erases previous codes remotes will also need to be programmed. (MAYBE)
KEY PADS/REMOTES
  • Insert key, turn ignition off-to- on eight times in succession, ending with key in on position doors will lock, unlock to verify in programming mode
  • Press any button on new remote, doors will lock, unlock to verify
  • Do the previous step with the second remote, doors will lock unlock to verify.
  • Turn ignition off. Doors will again lock, unlock to verify.
NOTE-Some vehicles use 5 turns of the key instead of 8

1994 ford explorer limited anti-theft


Two tips:
* If your anti-theft system is sounding (horn honking/lights flashing)you press the panic button on your key fob to shut it off.

* If your anti-theft system is armed (but not triggered) it is disarmed when you unlock the door(s) using your unlock button on your keyfob, the key pad on the driver's door, or your key.

Hope help with this. Good luck (remember rated this).

Change door code on 98 explorer


You will have to find the program code which is located on the processor either in the right front glove box area by the kick panel or in the left rear compartment when the hatch is open...you will see the 6-8 digit security key numbers and enter them on the key pad wait for thebeeps to begin and put your code in quickly befor the beeps end. I would be more specific but as I remember It varied for different models also I worked at Japanese dealerships along with Ford.
