    the code u are looking for is it for the keyless door pad on the outside of the drivers door? U don't have the code right now?

    on the rear wiper problem with this truck, there were reliability issues with the rear wiper motor, so the problem is the motor. I have never found a fuse to be the issue, if the fuse is blown then there is a short and it would blow again until the short is fixed, here is the fuse number. I am a Ford dealer tech of 20 years.

    Rear wiper fuse is in the underhood fuse box, it is fuse # 8 a 15Amp* Rear Wiper Motor

How to find the Security Keyless Keypad Code on the 1995-2001 Ford Explorer or Mountaineer and how to use the Keypad functions. The factory code is also printed on a label which is installed on the Remote Anti-theft Personality (RAP) Module. This is the module that controls the keyless entry system. It is located in the left rear quarter behind the removable panel (see photo). You will need to turn the two thumb screws counter clockwise and take the plastic panel off to be able to see the unit. A flashlight may be helpful in seeing the code. You are looking for the module and the 5 digit code on it like the one shown below.


Now that you’ve got the code I’ll tell you how to use the Keyless entry and set-up your own code.Make sure when pressing the controls on the keyless entry keypad you press the middle of the buttons to ensure good contact with the controls.


Check this for Programing the Keypad.

Hope this help (remember rated this comment).
