Key code is in owner manual packet on plastic or metal tag. your delaer can get it with VIN number and ID & registration proving you are owner of vehicle.

Possibly, you can take long thin screwdriver and slide it under outside door handle slot (lift handle) and move it around until you see inside lock move. then try to move lock/unlock rod.

1997 mercury mountaineer lost onnly key.. ignition key code location?

I think if you call the dealership with your vin number they can look it up and program the key for you. Sometimes the older vehicles the info get deleted. Its worth a try.

I have an 02 mercury mountaineer that I bought at a used car lot. no one knows the code and I've locked my keys in it. How do I unlock my car if I dont have the lock code?

its not something i would put up on the web as any one would be able to unlock any vehicle. all will say is boot.....and replace after. also you can have your remote read to get the code from it from most key cutting shops for a small price.

I cant get the keyless entry code to my 2003 mercury mountaineer. i bought the truck used so i never had the code but i locked my keys in the truck and i need the key code. is there a default code?

You will have to go to the dealer with tittle,and proof
of ownership and VIN# to get the factory code.

You should have 2 keys and a valet key, then program them,
then change the Keyless Door Code

The inside door handles are plastic so the chances are you need a new one. To get to it you have to take the door panel off and than you will see

Need a key code

Hello plymouth7265, my name is JShreader. Thank you for choosing

The Key Code for this Vehicle is located inside the Passenger Door Panel. You will need to remove the Panel to get to it. You will see the Code on a White Sticker on the Door Metal on the other side of the Window Brackets.

I hope this helps you. If you have any more questions or need any more diagrams, please don't hesitate to ask...Thanks again, JShreader!

Goodmorning! I had purchased a 2000 mercury

spray a small amount of W/D 4o into the key lock and then put the key in and move it back and forward until the lock free up and also spray a small amount in the inside lock of the door as well and then do the same on the other side the reason you had this problem is because the last owner only used the remotes to lock and unlock the doors and not the key sometimes.

To find out if the key is bad go to local lock smith and ask for a code key from the vin number they will tell you you need a chip that is correct but the key will open the door and turn on the ignition. if the new key works then your key is bad and the dealer can make you one for about 100.00 dollars if it still dont turn then the key cylinder is bad and it will need to be replaced good luck
