I have a 1996 4-dr, 2wd, and the code is inside the interior compartment above the passenger-side rear wheel, just under the side glass. It's been so long since I've seen it, I don't even remember what that panel compartment is for.

The quickest way is to go to a ford/mercury dealer and give them the vin # they will be able to look it up on the computer and give you the code. you will have to have your registration to prove that you are the owner of the vehicle. they will do this for no charge.

How do I change the code for key less entery on the key pad on door


Programming a personal entry code The factory set code cannot be reprogrammed but you can create your own 5 digit personal entry code. When pressing the controls on the keypad, press the middle of the controls to ensure a good activation.
Up to three personal entry codes may be programmed to the vehicle. To create your own personal entry code:

  • 1. Enter the factory set code.
  • 2. Within five seconds press the 1-2 on the keypad.
  • 3. Enter your personal 5-digit code. Each number must be entered within five seconds of each other.
  • 4. Press 1-2, 3-4 or 5-6 to indicate which of the three personal entry code positions you wish to use.
  • 5. The doors will again lock then unlock to confirm that your personal key code has been programmed to the module.
Tips:

  • Do not set a code that uses five of the same number.
  • Do not use five numbers in sequential order.
  • The factory set code will work even if you have set your own personal code.
  • If you program a code to a position that already contains a set code, the previously-set code will be erased.

Erasing personal code
  • 1. Enter the factory set 5 digit code.
  • 2. Within five seconds, press the 1-2 on the keypad and release.
  • 3. Press and hold the 1- 2 for two seconds. This must be done within five seconds of completing Step 2.
All personal codes are now erased and only the factory set 5 digit code will work.

Good luck (remember commend and rated this).

The keypad can be operated with the factory set 5-digit entry code
You can use the keyless entry keypad to
  • Lock or unlock the doors without using a key.
