Question about 2001 Ford Explorer Sport

1 Answer

Yes, It said in the book that the code could be taped to it.

The keypad on the door is correct. I just purchased the vehicle Wed. but it did not have the card with the code on it. It says that the code could be taped to the computer module but I have no clue where to look or how big of numer it should be.

Where is the keyless entry code on the vehicle for a 2010 Ford Explorer XTL?


Many models list this code on the production list of options on the cover plate to the spare tire/wheel...As a last resort, you can contact Ford, as the new owner and request the code directly from Ford...Most Ford Dealers are helpful to retrieve this also...you can check your system by pressing #8 then #9 on your door keypad, and this automatically locks all your doors. Good Luck, the Explorer is an excellent choice...Hope this helps. Also ask your Ford Dealer for the operators manual for this...

2004 ford expedition eddie bauer All the doors won't lock/unlock, just make a buzzing sound repeatedly. Also does this when shutting the vehicle off.


What makes a buzzing sound , the door lock actuators ? Or where do you hear the buzzing coming from if not at the doors ?
Power Lock
The power lock/unlock feature requests all of the vehicle doors, including the liftgate, be locked or unlocked upon a customer request from any interior door lock switch in the vehicle. The power door locking system functions independently of ignition status or vehicle speed. When the vehicle security module receives an unlock/lock command from any door lock control switch, the vehicle security module will activate relays internal to the module to supply the correct power and grounds for the door lock actuators.

Keyless entry code can be found in the rear of the vehicle...driver side tire jack compartment...look on the computer module inside the compartment & it should be on a sticker there.

Radio display is controlled by the dimmer switch -(the round mousewheel looking thing by the steering column) fiddle with that & see if that brings the display back.

Ask how to reset code on keypad, don't have original code, gramma died and nobody knows code, tried everyones b-day nothing worked keys locked inside


You'll need to call a towing service or a locksmith to have the vehicle unlocked. You can then find the code with the information below.

When you bought your vehicle, you were given a
computer code that operates the system for your
vehicle. For your convenience, we have duplicated
this code in three places.
The code is:
- on your owner's wallet card found in the glove
compartment
- taped to the right hinge of the trunk lid
- taped to the computer module inside the
driver's door panel

Just purchased a 2003 mountaineer from a used car dealer and they don't have the manual and the alarm doesn't work. How do I get the factory entry code?


the keyless entry code is on the module and in the module memory. A dealer can extract the code ( about $50). You can access the owner manual on line at motorcraft.com, pro center, tech info, owner manual. I have one for $7 plus postage. let me know. Also, look for a plastic credit card in teh glove box with the code on it. The module should be under the dash, driver side I think.


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 overwrites 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 now responds only 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 flashes 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 one minute of keypad inactivity.
Unlocking the Doors and Liftgate with the Keyless Entry Keypad 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 illuminate.
To unlock all doors, enter either the factory set code or the personal code (driver door unlocks) and press the 3/4 control within five seconds.
To open the liftgate window glass, enter the factory set code or the personal code (driver door unlocks) and press the 5/6 control within five seconds.
Locking the Doors with the Keyless Entry Keypad System
It is not necessary to enter the factory set or personal code prior to locking all doors. To lock all doors, press the 7/8 and 9/0 controls at the same time

Wrong keypad number put in can't start vehicle


I assume you are reffering to the door keypad, but the door keypad will not keep you from starting the vehicle unless you of course cannot get into it. The keypad code is normally located on either the owners manual in the back, the lift hinges on a passenger car trunk, or would need to be retrieved by a dealership with a scan tool.

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.

I just bought a 2002 explorer and it has a keypad entry system. There are no books with it. How do I find the code or enter a new code.


BEHIND DRIVER DOOR PANEL OR RIGHT SIDE REAR TRIM PANEL LOOK AT PASS SIDE REAR DOOR OPENING AND PULL REAR TRIM OUT THERE its a five digit code

To erase any personal code set by the prior owner, use these steps:
1. Use the keypad to enter the factory set code.
2. Within five seconds, press the 7/8 and 9/0 buttons simultaneously.
3. The system will now respond only to the factory set code.

You can program your own personal code via these steps:
1. Use the keypad to enter the factory set code.
2. Within five seconds, press the 1/2 button
3. Within five seconds, begin entering your personal five digit code.
(Each subsequent keypress must be within five seconds of the previous)
4. The system will now respond to both your new personal code and the factory set code.
5. Put the factory set code you wrote down in a safe place. It will always open your door, and it won't do you any good if locked inside your vehicle.

Hope this help

Key pad code


Usually the doorkey code is on a strip of tape on the trunk lid hinge. It can be in the doorjam or door hinge also. Sometimes you can find them under the hood hinge.
The owners manual kit usually has a hard plastic card with the code on it. If all else fails, the dealer can run the code from the Vin#. As long as the keypad is original the factory info will be correct.
