    I assume you mean the key pad code on the drivers door?

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.

CANT FIND WHERE DOOR LOCK CODE IS ON USED 1998 FORD EXPLORER WE BOUGHT { NO MANUAL}


try looking inside the left back kick panel where your jack goes. When you remove the panel to put your jack in it will be located on the fender well, it should be a little black box with the code on it.
Hope this helps.

How can you get child locks off? We don't have a code to punch into driver's door and we have to open doors from the outside to get them open, while we are on the inside. Please help, we bought the car for...


on my 1999 ford expedition, there is a switch or lever on the inside visible side of door when open that can change the mode for child locks on or off.

The code to punch on the driver's door has nothing to do with the child locks.

Good luck on this.

How can i program my door lock code or find out what it is. on my 2000 limited edition explorer


FORD KEY PADS
  • Enter permanent factory code
  • Press the 1/2 button within 5 seconds to enter programming mode
  • Within 5 seconds enter new code, doors will lock, unlock to verify code, this erases previous codes remotes will also need to be programmed.
FORD KEY PADS/REMOTES
  • Insert key, turn ignition off-to- on eight times in succession, ending with key in on position doors will lock, unlock to verify in programming mode
  • Press any button on new remote, doors will lock, unlock to verify
  • Do the previous step with the second remote, doors will lock unlock to verify.
  • Turn ignition off. Doors will again lock, unlock to verify.
NOTE-I found that some Explorer/Mountaineers enter program mode after 5 times-not 8.

Here is the link for further info.

Your factory code is on a card in the owners manual. If that is lost, access the control module in the cargo area behind the left cover panel.

You MIGHT be able to see the code printed on it, or you might need to pull it out in order to see it.

Why will the key to my 97 Explorer work on the back door and not on the driver and passenger door? Is their another key that I am suppose to have?


unless your explorer was keyed alike (was requested that 1 key fits all) the only way to address this issue is to 1 try using liquid graphite (lock oil) in the locks 2 have a lock smith look at it and correct the problem or 3 (if you are handy) take the locks out and have the door locks rekeyed to to a new code, or rekeyed to work with your original key.
If you had bought this car used alot of time dealers will buy cars at auction that where repoed and the cars locks where rekeyed to work

Need door lock code for 2001 Explorer


2 ways to get code.....1- get a scanner to access security module to get code (local dealers can do that)....or 2- tear-apart the left rear quarter panel to access the security module and the number is printed on the label.....once you do that you can change it to your own code as outlined in your owners manual.......GL
