For safety reasons, only a dealer can get your key code from Ford and make you a key. You will need proof of ownership and your VIN number and ID. 1-800-241-3673.
You can try calling Ford Roadside Assistance. They may be abe to help.

Sometimes, you can take a long, thin screwdriver and lift up the door handle. Slide the screwdriver in the slot under the handle. Move around till you see the lock button move and try to pry it up. Also, local police might help with a slim jim.

No you can not retrieve the keyless entry code with the vin number. However you may be able to retrieve the actual key code and have a blank cut. The only problem is your vehicle is a 98 model and that is the cut off on how far back ford goes so yours may or may not be avaliable. You can have your local dealer retrieve this but they would have to have a picture ID and proof of ownership.
The only other option is to have someone use a jocklock to get it open, it is pretty easy to do on this vehicle.

Yes the Dealer can unlock your Mountaineer using the VIN# to retrieve the door code and can also cut a new door key for you too.
You'll need the Vin# and prof of ownership to the Mountaineer, such as the bill of sale ect:
Good luck and hope this helps.

My alarm goes off intermittently


Try resetting the alarm, using the instructions given at the link below. I'll also copy the text here.

  1. Insert the ignition/door key in the door lock on the driver's- side door of your Mountaineer.
  2. Turn the key to the lock position.
  3. Turn your key to the unlock position.
  4. Turn your key to the lock position.
  5. Turn your key to the unlock position. Your alarm is now disabled. If your key fob works, you can also press the unlock or alarm-disable button on the fob.
  6. Start the Mountaineer's engine and allow the vehicle to run for at least 10 minutes. This will allow the alarm to relearn the default settings. You must make sure that you have disabled the alarm first, however, before you attempt to start the vehicle, so that the alarm will reset itself.

If these instructions don't work, you can try resetting the car's computer by unplugging the battery for half an hour. However, that will reset the keyless entry code, as you can see in the fixya article I link to at the bottom

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.

Locked my one set of keys in 2000 mercury marquis. How can i find the Keyless Entry code which i don't remember. I'm forgetting a lot of things!! Ha


Well the only way to do that is to look on the Keyless entry module in the car, or retrieve it with a computer which again you would need to get in the car. Your best bet is to call a lock smith and have him open it. We have a company here called Pop A Lock that will come out for i think $45

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

TRY THIS REPROGRAMMING PROCEDURE. SWITCH THE IGNITION OFF TO ON 8 TIMES WITHIN 10 SECONDS. DOORS SHOULD LOCK THEN UNLOCK. PRESS ANY BUTTON ON THE FIRST REMOTE TRANSMITTER. DOORS SHOULD LOCK THEN UNLOCK. IF YOU HAVE ANOTHER CAR REMOTE REPROGRAM IT THE SAME WAY. WHEN DONE SWITCH IGNITION SWITCH OFF.

Door lock code..how do i fuind my code


the door lock code is on the key-less entry module, that is located
behind the lower plastic panel on the passenger side rear panel right below the seat belt height adjuster. Not the panel with the seatbelt adjuster but the one below it. No tools were needed and it took me all of 5 minutes. Just pop off the front of the panel closest to the door and pull it back. Use a light and you can see the large 5 digit code on top of the module.

Need keyless entry code 1998 mercury mountaineer. I need to know how to reset or determne the keyless code to get in.


If you have the Keys to the vehicle you can get in. Giving that code out will put other vehicle at risk. If you have a manual it will have the reset code in it. Try using the manual first if that does not work go the dealership.
