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.

  • 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.

Erasing personal code
  • 1. Enter the factory set 5 digit code.
  • 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.
All personal codes are now erased and only the factory set 5 digit code will work.

Good luck (remember commend and rated this).

How do I reset the keyless entry pad to unlock the doors on my 2006 ford five hundred

You can't reset it. They all come with a factory code (RKE Code). If you have the factory code you can add a second and third code of your own. If you have lost the factory code you can retrieve it by going to the Ford dealer. Secondly you can do it this way:
Location for key pad entery code; 2006 Ford 500. Need to pull panel off below steering wheel (I used a 9/32 socket) Then look for 3 10mm nuts, 2 @ top 1 on the bottom. if you are having trouble locating this box, its part of your fuse box (says pull on the cover) and your fuses are behind the cover. Once you have removed the 3 10mm nuts, look on the back of the box (CAREFUL NOT TO PULL ON WIRES TO MUCH) and you will see the 5digit code! Watch this you tube video.
I hope this helps.

    If there's a key pad on the driver's door then it has key-less entry. If there's no key pad then it doesn't.

    Combination on car keypad does not open doors

    Does the key pad on the door light up? Are there any tears in the key pad numbers? Does the key pad lock the doors?.
    There are no fuses directly for the pad.. The key pad is linked directly to the RAP. module. If the locks work from the FOB the fuses for the Module are good. Chances are the pad is no good especially if it don't light up. The RAP module is above the driver side foot well, directly above the accelerator pedal . Hope this helps.
