Check inside the trunk lid for a label with a 5 digit code. If unsuccessful, then any dealer would be able to help you by checking the VIN number.

    Not the hinge but just inside the lid itself usually just as you open the trunk but its possible its elsewhere along the lid or maybe even mounted on the trunk itself; if there's no label to be found in the trunk, I also got a copy affixed to a card in my owners manual. It wouldn't say what it was for but a small plastic card with a 5 digit number on a label.

Where can I find the keyless entry code for a 2001 ford windstar


The manual says:
The keypad can be operated with the factory set 5-digit entry code; this code is located on the owner's wallet card in the glove box, is marked on the computer module, and is available from your authorized dealer. You can also create your own 5-digit personal entry code.
(someone on the internet says: A sticker that is located on the computer module - this should be located underneath the dash/steering wheel on the driver's side (by the fuze box - bolted to the firewall of the car/van)

Are you the original owner? This number can be reprogrammed, so it may not be the original number. Does the keypad work ok? Did you test to see that lights come on when each of the 5 buttons are pressed?

Where is the computer module on the 2006 f350


Location of Keyless Code on Computer Module of Ford F250 Superduty ( 2009 )

Finding this code seems to be a common problem, so, here is a better answer to save you the time I spent locating the sticker on the computer module that shows the keyless entry code.

One owners from 2008 F150 XLT Superduty tell me and I suspect the location for a F150 would be very near same location as on a F250

The computer module is mounted high on the firewall approximately behind the a/c fan speed control knob. Here is how to find it / get to it:

1. Remove the large cover under the steering column that covers the fuse block. You'll need to reach in under the dash, with your left arm, to the right of the steering column and left of center to move stuff to get a clear view.

2. Open the storage pocket door on the lower edge of the dash (right of the steering column) and squeeze the back side of the storage pocket to allow the stops to pass to the front. This will allow the opening to be clear to see the computer module up in the dash. Shine your flash light through this opening.

3. Move the first piece of white insulation to the side to see the firewall. Look up through the pocket door, moving the wiring harnesses aside if necessary. You'll find a second white insulation wrapped snugly across the computer module. When you push the insulation up to see the flat surface, you see the 5 digit number printed up-side-down in black on a white sticker. This is your keyless entry code.

Instructions for Programming Keyless Entry Code (from the 2008 Owner's Manual)

1. Enter the factory set code. The driver door will unlock.

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. The doors will lock then unlock to confirm that your personal keycode has been programmed into the module.

Tips:

• Do not use five numbers in sequential order.

I don't have a manual for my 2004 lincoln Avaitor but would like to know how I can change the code on the drives door key pad


KEYLESS ENTRY SYSTEM With the keyless entry keypad, you can: • lock or unlock the vehicle doors without using the key. Your vehicle has a factory set 5 digit code that operates the keyless entry system. You can also program your own 5 digit personal entry code. The factory-set code is located: • on the owner's wallet card in the glove compartment • or at your dealer. When pressing the controls on the keyless entry keypad, press the middle of the controls to ensure a good activation. This system will disable the power door lock controls. These will not work until the vehicle is disarmed. Programming your own personal entry code To program your own code: 5. Enter factory set code (keypad will illuminate when pressed). 6. Press 1/2 control within five seconds of step 1. 7. Enter your personal 5 digit code. Enter each digit within five seconds of previous one. 8. After the code is entered, the locks will cycle, confirming that the new code has been set. 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 the first personal code in favor of the new code. Locks and Security 149 Locks and Security If you wish to erase your personal code, use the following instructions: 1. Enter factory set code. 2. Press 1/2 control and release. The system will now only respond to the factory set code. Anti-scan feature The anti-scan feature prevents repeated attempts at arriving at a valid key code. The keyless entry pad is disabled for 1 minute after 7 unsuccessful attempts (35 consecutive button presses) at entering a valid key code. The keypad will flash during this 1 minute mode. However, the 7/8 and 9/0 controls will still lock the vehicle. Anti-scan will be turned off after: • one minute of keypad inactivity. • the remote entry transmitter UNLOCK button is pressed. • the ignition is turned to the ON position. 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: • with the driver's door closed, press the 7/8 control and the 9/0 control at the same time.

How do i reprogram keyless entry codes


door pad keyless codes?

in owner manual, enter permanent code and then press "1" and enter personal code, then press "1" again. Then both codes will work.

If you don't have manual, go to Motorcraft.com and click on technical resources and click on your year owner manual.

---------------------------------------------
Each vehicle equipped with a keyless entry keypad is programmed with a five-digit entry code. This code is provided to the customer through a wallet card in the Owner Literature package. In addition, this code is available through a diagnostic tool and is also printed on the vehicle security module label. When entering codes each digit must be entered within five seconds of the previous button press.
Programming/Erasing Personal Code
A unique personal five-digit code can be programmed by following these steps:
  1. Enter the factory set five-digit code (the keypad will illuminate when pressed).
  1. Press 1/2 within five seconds of Step 1.
  1. Enter the unique five-digit code.
The personal code does not substitute for the permanent factory set code. Either code can be used to access the vehicle. In addition, if a second personal code is programmed, it will simply overwrite the previous personal code. To erase a personal code, carry out the following procedure:
  1. Enter factory set five-digit code.
  1. Press 1/2 within five seconds of Step 1.
  1. Press 7/8 and 9/0 at the same time within five seconds of Step 2.
The system will now only respond to the factory set code.
Anti-Scan Feature
To provide added security, the keyless entry pad is disabled for one minute after 35 button presses without a valid entry code being entered. The keypad will flash during this one-minute mode with all functionality disabled except for 7/8 and 9/0 still being allowed to lock the vehicle.
Anti-Scan will be turned off after any of the following events:
  • one minute of keypad inactivity
  • the keyless entry remote transmitter UNLOCK button is pressed
  • the ignition is turned to the ON position.
