Mine died as well. The whole internet had nothing to say about this damn thing so I was going for broke, as they say.
Well, here goes.
Tools required: 1) wide'ish but slightly sharpened flathead to go into the small groove (~1 cm) at the right side base of the cover, 2) razor/exacto knife 3) wife's sweatshirt to protect my paint job!
Step 1: Pry the **** out of the cover (less twisting/more prying), with any luck the backing tape will hold and the cover will not.
Step 2: pealn away if possible or (ugly part) make a circumferential cut around the soft button material as close as you can to the sealing groove that the cover was in.
Step 3: remove buttons, support plate, and circuit card from the base and replace the 3V BR2335 button style battery.
Step 4: Hope it all goes back together with reasonable weather resistance. We'll see...
PS Maybe if it was above 26F it would have been easier...

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).

2003 ford futura programming a new keypad


Adding and Removing remote Keypads to the Smartlock module
------------------------------
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
the keypad has been trained.
