Question about 2000 Ford Excursion
Everything stated above is wishful thinking and/or hogwash. If you don't have the code, don't listen to anyone tell you that it's on a sticker somewhere under the dash. I fell for that. I completely removed my dashboard face and lower dashboard cover, removed the cluster, and basically had a non functional vehicle chasing around a code that was on a module that wasn't there. If you want to find out the code for your vehicle, and don't want to pay a dealer 1/2 hour labor (yea a dealer is going to do that for free or at a discount?) there is a table that shows all 3156 possible keystrokes to decipher your 5 digit code. I took the chart and divided it up on an excel spreadsheet. I would be happy to email the chart to you. It took my wife and I about 50 minutes to find the correct code; it was the 132nd code we typed in. E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I'll send you the excel spreadsheet.

The factory code came with the truck on a wallet card in the owners manual. If your lucky it may still be kicking around in the glove box or
the door or visor pouch. It is also stored in the generic electronic module(GEM). Even if the code was changed, the GEM still retains the
factory code. You call a locksmith and see if they can scan the GEM for the code, or the ford dealer can scan it. You could buy a new a new
GEM I don't know how much, and finding a used one that has the code
is a longshot. Also the door solenoids tend to get sticky with age, if the
door button or the key are a bit tough to unlock the door there is a good
chance the solenoid won't unlock it. I have a 99 explorer and I've had
the door apart twice for that problem. If you decide to change the GEM
it's located behind the lower left side of the dash on the central
junction block. Hope this helps.

At least with my 1997 Explorer, the master code WAS written on the lock module. I just bought this car yesterday. It came with one key, no door 'clickers' and no code for the keyless entry system. My lock module was located in the compartment that holds the car jack. I had to loosen a screw holding the module and use a small mirror and flashlight to see the code but it definitely was there. It's a five digit code written on a paper sticker on the module. I used the code to reset the keyless entry. I don't know where the lock module is on the 2000 Excursion but, if you find it, I bet the code will be there. Ford doesn't change their methods much over time. If you find it, write it down and keep it in the glovebox. Incidentally, my son had found a key clicker on the ground a few years ago when he was hiking. It's been hanging around my junk drawer since then. It turned out to be a Ford clicker. You can use the master code to reprogram spare clickers. (There are other ways too.) 30 seconds of re-programming and I have a new clicker too.
