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.
Hope this helped (remember comment and rated this).

You can't figure out thing's without knowing how there work , what controls them . In this case a control module .
Principles of Operation

Power Door Locks
The central security module controls the power door lock and keyless entry system. The lock and unlock operation is carried out by supplying ground to the central security module from the door lock control switch. The normal path of the actuators is to ground through the central security module. The door lock control switch will lock and unlock all doors by grounding the appropriate circuit to the central security module. The central security module then supplies power to the appropriate common actuator circuit to lock or unlock all doors.
Plus we don't guess , we test the electrical circuits with a DVOM - digital multimeter or a test light . We use a wiring diagram so we know which part of the circuits to test .

Keyless Entry
The remote transmitter sends a frequency that is received by the central security module internal antenna. Depending on the frequency received, the central security module will lock all doors or unlock the driver door. If the unlock frequency is received again within five seconds of the first unlock, the central security module will unlock all doors.
If the frequency received is for the panic button, the central security module will cycle ground to the park lamp and horn. The park lamps and horn will continue to cycle until the panic button is pressed again or the ignition switch is turned to the RUN position or 2.75 minutes elapse.
Plus we hook up a scan tool that can read codes from the control module , not a code reader for engine codes , won't work ! Need a professional scan tool .Do you know what DTC'S are ? Diagnostic trouble codes !
Central Security Module Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index DTC Description Source Action to Take B1309 Power Door Lock Circuit Short to Ground Central Security Module Go To Pinpoint Test C . B1341 Power Door Unlock Circuit Short to Ground Central Security Module Go To Pinpoint Test C . B1485 Brake Pedal Input Circuit Short to Battery Central Security Module Go To Pinpoint Test E . B1526 Keyless Entry Circuit Short to Ground Central Security Module Go To Pinpoint Test F . B1629 PRNDL Reverse Input Short to Battery Central Security Module Go To Pinpoint Test E . B2276 Less Than Two Transmitters Programmed Central Security Module Go To Pinpoint Test I . B2425 Remote Keyless Entry Out of Synchronization Central Security Module Go To Pinpoint Test I . - All Other DTCs Central Security Module REFER to Section 419-10 .
  • All door locks are inoperative
  • Battery junction box (BJB) fuse(s):
    • 8 (15A).
    • 115 (20A) (Super Crew).
  • Circuitry.
  • Central security module.
  • Go To Pinpoint Test C .

Seams you lack the knowledge and test equipment to tackle this type of repair . Your best bet mite be to have a qualified repair shop check it out.
So, without testing i couldn't even begin to suggest what mite be wrong . I would only be guessing , as would anyone on here would.

Bought a 1995 jeep grand cherokee orvis . it has no keeless remote, just keys.installed new battery and the security must be on.all lights inside and out are blinking.on and off. how do i reset security.


Try turning the key..unlock-lock-unlock in the rear tailgate lock. That should turn off the factory security system.
If it's an aftermarket alarm system, you will need an alarm installer's help in determining what type and model alarm it is, before you can figure out how to shut it off.

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.

HOW TO OPEN THE DOOR USING THE NUMBER PAD ON THE DOOR


this from the owners manual

the reason the locks dont work more then likely there is a code stored in the bcm for a lock output circuit normally caused by one if not both of the sliding door acuators. even if you change the acuators the locks still will not work until the code is cleared.
