Can i look up my keypad code using my vin number


Located on white sticker which is on top of the lock control unit located either 1. in the spare compartment in the rear driver side. (where jack and tools are), or 2. behind the passenger side "B" pillar (need to remove the 2 inside plastic covers near the seat belt shoulder attachment (adjustment). Once you have this code, it will either unlock the car, or you will need to reset the code. (follow directions in the owner's manual).

After locking my car, the interior lights dim and go out as usual and then come back on and the doors will keep locking themselves.


The problem is in the keypad assembly. It causes the interior lights to come on and off and can drain the battery. This also causes the doors to lock and unlock without driver input. The keypads on this model usually go out if someone is playing with it or trying to discover the unlock combination. If you don't need to use the keypad for entry or access to the trunk you can disconnect the keypad and you won't experience the above mentioned problems.

Tailgate failure on honda accord tourer 2004


Maybe a little late here but i have a fix for this after turning down my dealers generous offer of a 750gbp fix i did some extensive googling and found this.... With your ignition on open the tailgate using the catch inside then turn off ignition and disconnect the battery for a minute. Reconect the battery and turn on ignition and let the warning lights go through their cycle. With the ignition still on shut the tailgate and hey Presto should be as good as new.

How to change the keypad code on a 2001 mercury grand marquis


look for the permanent code on the plastic card in the owner manual packet. Or, pay dealer to extract code from computer.

Keyless Entry Keypad Code Programming NOTE: The system only allows one code to be programmed.
  1. Enter the permanent factory keyless entry keypad code.
  1. Press the 1/2 button within five seconds to activate the programming mode. Holding the 1/2 button for more than two seconds after activation will erase the stored customer code . The door locks will lock, then unlock, confirming the code is erased. The existing code will not need to be erased to program new a code.
  1. Within five seconds, enter the new five-digit keyless entry keypad code. The door locks will lock and unlock to confirm the new code is programmed.

Power door locks won't unlock + tailgate won't open


your issue involves the master control switch panel on the drivers side and or the passenger side as well some how the contact inside the switch assembly has either shorted out or no longer makes contact for the unlock side of the circuit. replace the drivers side panel switchs it's either a series of switc hs or mostimes one sigle board of switchs. you are better off going to an auto parts store rather than a GM dealership this will save you quite a bit on cash on the parts. now as to the rear tailgate. if it is electronic controled and there is an issue with the master switch you can,t manually unlock it because of a safty issue built in the system. you can manually unlock the passenger compartment doors for thew same reasons of safety but doesn't apply to the tailgate. just replace the parts and this will take care of the problem
