The RKE is controlled by the SJB - smart junction box ! Fords BCM - body control module .
Principles of Operation
Power Locks
The SJB controls the power lock/unlock feature of all of the vehicle doors, including the liftgate, to lock or unlock based on the input received from the door lock control switch, the keyless entry keypad or the remote keyless entry (RKE) transmitter. Power locking and unlocking of the doors function independently of the key position, vehicle speed or transmission position. The smart junction box (SJB) activates internal relays to supply the correct voltage and grounds for the door lock actuators.

Your best bet would be to take to ford dealer or some other qualified repair shop .
Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) Transmitter Lock/Unlock Control - Unlock
The RKE transmitter feature provides lock/unlock functions independently of key position, vehicle speed, or transmission position. The RKE transmitter feature provides a 2-step process for unlocking the doors. Upon receipt of the first request for unlocking the doors, the RKE control feature requests the SJB to unlock the driver door only. If another unlock request is received within 3 seconds of the first, the RKE transmitter feature requests the SJB to unlock all the doors. This feature can be changed to global unlock, so that all the doors unlock on the first press of the unlock button. To toggle between the 2-step unlock and the global unlock press the lock and the unlock button on the RKE transmitter at the same time and hold the buttons for 4 seconds. The turn signal lamps flash to confirm that the feature has been toggled.
Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) Transmitter Lock/Unlock Control - Lock
The RKE transmitter feature requests that all the doors be locked when the lock button is pressed. On any press of the lock button with all doors closed, the SJB provides 1 flash of the parking lamps. If any door is ajar, no flash occurs. As soon as the last door is closed, the SJB provides the flash of the parking lamps. If 2 presses of the lock button are received within 3 seconds, the horn chirps once, and the parking lamps flash twice to indicate that all the doors are closed and locked. If any door is ajar when the second lock request is received within 3 seconds of the first, the RKE transmitter feature requests the SJB chirp the horn twice without flashing the parking lamps to indicate it locked all the doors but 1 or more doors are ajar. When the key is in the ON or START position, the parking lamp flashes and horn chirp confirmations do not occur.

All locks not working ?????

  • The doors do not lock/unlock using the remote keyless entry (RKE) transmitter
  • RKE transmitter battery
  • RKE transmitter
  • RKE transmitter programming
  • Aftermarket system
  • SJB
  • Go To Pinpoint Test H .

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...

Need to change fuse on remote keyless entry but don't where it's located on fuse box on 2004 explorer


Do any doors lock/unlock with remote keyless entry ?
  • The doors do not lock/unlock using the remote transmitter
  • Remote transmitter battery.
  • Remote transmitter.
  • Remote transmitter programming.
  • Aftermarket system.
  • High power devices.
  • TV/radio transmission towers.
  • Vehicle security module.
  • Go To Pinpoint Test C .
Pinpoint Test C: The Doors Do Not Lock/Unlock Using The Remote Transmitter
Normal Operation
Remote locking and unlocking of the doors is accomplished by the vehicle security module receiving a command message from the remote transmitter. The vehicle security module processes the command and sends a signal directly to the door lock actuators.
All remote transmitters must be present to begin diagnosis of the remote keyless entry (RKE) system.
Aftermarket or dealer-installed systems may adversely effect the RKE system operation. These systems should be disconnected before diagnosing any RKE concerns.

How do I replace fuse for remote keyless entry?


The vehicle security module controls keyless entry . There are fuse's that power the vehicle security module but not a fuse just for the keyless entry ! If your having problems with the keyless entry your going to have to take it to the dealer or an ASE certified repair shop . There is no magical fuse or cure.

Where is the theft sysem located at on a 2005 Dodge Durango and how can I get to it


What's the problem your having NICK ? The theft system is incorporated in everything , engine computer , body control module ! There is a anti-theft control module , a transponder chip in the head of you ignition key !
The Sentry Key Immobilizer System (SKIS) is available as a factory-installed option on this vehicle. Vehicles equipped with this option can be readily identified by the illumination of the security indicator in the instrument cluster for about three seconds after the ignition switch is turned to the ON position as a SKIS bulb test.
The SKIS includes the following major components, which are described in further detail elsewhere in this service information:
  • Powertrain Control Module (1)- The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) is located in the engine compartment and provides the SKIS engine control logic. ( Refer to 8 - ELECTRICAL/ELECTRONIC CONTROL MODULES/POWERTRAIN CONTROL MODULE - DESCRIPTION ).
  • Security Indicator- A security indicator is integral to the ElectroMechanical Instrument Cluster (EMIC) (also known as the Cab Compartment Node/CCN). ( Refer to 8 - ELECTRICAL/INSTRUMENT CLUSTER/SECURITY INDICATOR - DESCRIPTION ).
  • Sentry Key Remote Entry Module (2)- The Sentry Key REmote Entry Module (SKREEM) (also known as the Sentry Key Immobilizer Module/SKIM or the Wireless Control Module/WCM) is located on the right side of the steering column near the ignition lock cylinder housing and an integral molded plastic antenna ring circles the ignition lock cylinder like a halo. The SKREEM and its antenna are concealed beneath the steering column shrouds. Two SKREEM modules are available: one for vehicles equipped with Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) only, and one for vehicles equipped with RKE and SKIS.
  • Sentry Key Transponder (3)- The Sentry Key transponder is contained within the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter on the ignition key.
  • If you do not know about this , do not mess with it , take it to professional. Save your self money an aggravation !

WHERE is the keyless entry box on 97 dodge caravan


Hi.

Only 96 and 97 models have a separate RKE module. Models from other years do not necessarily have a separate RKE module but RKE is one of the functions of the Body Control Module located under the dash.

In the 1997 Dodge Caravan the RKE module is located up on top of the dash between the defrost ducts. Removing the upper dash panel you will find the module located behind the safety indicator cluster on the left hand side. The module is a small black box of about 2/3 inches side, attached to a blue electrical connector.

Regards.

Im instaling a remote start alarm on my 1999 ford f 150 how do i bipass the anti theft and i do not want to carry 2 remotes around


The 2 Key fob part, is to get a remote start that also has the RKE ( Remote Keyless Entry ) function. The the RMST / RKE system is installed, the RMST fob would be able to operate the door locks ( you can put the factory RKE fobs in the drawer )

the PATS ( Passive AntiTheft System ) part is to get a PATS bypass module for the remote start. The remote start that you purchase needs to be able to activate this prior to starting the truck ( usually pulse / signal outputs, most mfgr of RMST have these ).

There are a few PATS bypass modules, I have only used the Ford branded one ( which I think is also made by CodeAlarm, not 100% sure ).

2001 ford explorer sport, door keypad reset


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).
