A locksmith or tow company can unlock your vehicle to get your keys, if you have roadside service on your insurance they will bill them directly.
Where the code can be found

  • This code is located on the owner's wallet card in the glove box
  • Is available from your authorized dealer via scan code
  • Is marked on the computer module

Computer Module location
  • 1995 thru 2001 is located in the jack storage compartment in the rear of your Explorer. First remove the panel to the jack storage compartment. Towards the front of this area you should see a metal box this is your auto-lock module(way up front next to your rear left passenger seat). On the back side of this is your 5 digit code factory preset code. It is hard to get to. To see it you will have to loosen, pull, use a flashlight or a mirror but it can be done.

  • 2002 thru 2007 is in the right panel behind the middle row window. It is below the seat belt mechanism. You have to pull out the top plastic panel off, then loosen the lower panel to be able to see the face of the computer module. The code is on a sticker on the face of the module.
Found info here, it has a lot of usefull information relating to your car.

Did you program the security system to accept the new key ?
It sounds like the linkage from the lock cylinder is worn out to not let the steering wheel lock. I would want to know if the lock cylinder is turning the switch without any extra movement.

I think your only solution is going to be through the dealer, no one else will have this. Ask for a regional
factory tech rep, they will have some solution, even if it comes to a new lock cylinder and ignition switch.

Why will the key to my 97 Explorer work on the back door and not on the driver and passenger door? Is their another key that I am suppose to have?

unless your explorer was keyed alike (was requested that 1 key fits all) the only way to address this issue is to 1 try using liquid graphite (lock oil) in the locks 2 have a lock smith look at it and correct the problem or 3 (if you are handy) take the locks out and have the door locks rekeyed to to a new code, or rekeyed to work with your original key.
If you had bought this car used alot of time dealers will buy cars at auction that where repoed and the cars locks where rekeyed to work

I locked my keys in my truck, when I put my code in the keyless pad the doors do not open. 2002 Ford Explore sport trac.The keys are in the ignition.

There are several things you can do.
1. Ask the Police dispatcher if an Officer could get in your car for you.
2. Call a Locksmith. If you have Autoclub or some types of insurance, they will pay.
3. Call the dealer with your Vin#. If you can convince the Dealer who you are they may give you the original code for the truck.

The Keycode can be changed after the truck is built. You would enter the original code, hold in 2 of the buttons in a special sequence and then reenter a new code. Most of the time the truck remembers the change but it can revert back to the original.
