Question about 1995 Lincoln Town Car

1 Answer

Keypad door lock does not work..?

My car has a keypad unlock code on the door but I can't seem to work the code. There are 5 buttons, each has two numbers on it (1-2)(3-4)(5-6)(7-8)(9-0),my code is 18839 and i can't get it to work. Is there a way to reset the code or change it? or am I doing something wrong? also my trunk will not pop with the key remote. and will not unlock or lock unless I'm 5 feet from the car.. which isn't a big deal but I know they usually work from a much larger distance.

    I got a 2000 Ford Explore that I got about 5 months ago. I don't know the codes on the door to unlock it. how can I get the codes or reset it.


    You will need the original factory programmed keyless entry keypad code to program your own code. To locate the original keypad code, open the right/rear door. Pull the on-body rubber weatherstrip out, around the rear side of the door closure. Fold the right/rear seat back down into the locked position to facilitate access to the right/rear seat belt anchor. Carefully pry the upper plastic panel that houses the height adjuster and seat belt anchor off the body taking care not to damage the panel. Now pry the lower panel outward just far enough to enable access to the Vehicle Security Module, where you'll see three electrical connectors plugged into it, colored green, gray, and blue. On the module will be a series of digits on a label similar to 2L2T-15K602-EA. Beside those digits are five numbers. Those five numbers are the key-less entry keypad code. Once the original keypad code has been obtained, you will need to enter it, press the 1/2 button within 5 seconds to activate the programming mode. Holding the 1/2 button for more than 2 seconds after activation will erase the the code you programmed. The existing code will not need to be erased to program a new code. Within 5 seconds, enter the new 5-digit keypad code. The door locks will lock and unlock to confirm the new code is programmed. Hope this helps Tim

    How do i get my factory remote to work on my 1997 lincoln town car


    Pretty simple really. all you need to do is enter your code into the keypad located on the vehicle (the code to unlock and lock the doors/the normal code you always use). Then press the 1/2 button on the keypad. then just press one button on the remote. Your doors should lock and unlock to let you know the programming was a success. If you are doing more then one remote press the other ones within i think 5 seconds to program that remote as well. I hope this helps and good luck.

    Need to reprogram key less entry. 2002 Ford explorer sport.


    Keyless Entry Keypad FAQ Ford Explorer
    The keypad can be operated with the factory set 5-digit entry code
    You can use the keyless entry keypad to
    • Lock or unlock the doors without using a key.
    • Open the liftgate window.
    • Activate or deactivate the autolock feature.

    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.

    Programming a personal entry code The factory set code cannot be reprogrammed but you can create your own 5�digit personal entry code. When pressing the controls on the keypad, press the middle of the controls to ensure a good activation.
    Up to three personal entry codes may be programmed to the vehicle. To create your own personal entry code:

    • 1. Enter the factory set code.
    • 2. Within five seconds press the 1 � 2 on the keypad.
    • 3. Enter your personal 5-digit code. Each number must be entered within five seconds of each other.
    • 4. Press 1 � 2, 3 � 4 or 5 � 6 to indicate which of the three personal entry code positions you wish to use.
    • 5. The doors will again lock then unlock to confirm that your personal key code has been programmed to the module.
    Tips:

    • Do not set a code that uses five of the same number.
    • Do not use five numbers in sequential order.
    • The factory set code will work even if you have set your own personal code.
    • If you program a code to a position that already contains a set code, the previously-set code will be erased.

    • 2. Within five seconds, press the 1 � 2 on the keypad and release.
    • 3. Press and hold the 1 � 2 for two seconds. This must be done within five seconds of completing Step 2.

    The anti-scan feature will turn off after
    • One minute of keypad inactivity.

    ------------------------------
    Up to four Keypads can be programmed and used with the Smartlock Remote
    Central locking system.
    If you have replaced the BEM, or new keypads are being added to the
    system, you will need to train the keypad codes to the module.
    # 1. The ignition switch should be in the Off position, with all the
    doors shut and Unlocked.
    # 2. Turn the ignition key to the ACCESSORY position and within 5
    seconds, operates the rear demister switch exactly three times in quick
    succession. (IE. Press the switch so the Demister light turns on, then
    off, then back on again.)
    # 3. After the 5 seconds is up, the door locks will change state, to
    indicate that the BEM has entered keypad learn mode.
    NOTE : All existing keypads at this point, have been erased from memory
    !
    # 4. Press either buttons on the keypad that is to be trained. The door
    locks will change state twice, to indicate that the keypad has been
    added to the BEM memory.
    # 5. Follow step 4. for each keypad that is to be added to the BEM
    memory. A maximum of 4 keypads can be added to the BEM memory.NOTE :
    You must teach all remote keypads for the Smartlock module, before
    proceeding.
    # 6. When you have taught all the remote keypads, turn the ignition to
    the Off position to leave the learn mode. The door locks will change
    state to indicate a return to normal mode.
    # 7. Check the function of both buttons on each keypad, to ensure that
