Resetting the entry code

Is there a place on my Explorer that I can find the code. When I bought the vehicle, it had no owner's manual or code given.

The code is on the module that is located behind the drivers side rear panel. Remove the jack cover and use a flashlight to find the code. It is a 5 digit code.

What is the keyless entry code for my 2000 Ford explorer

If you have the owners manual, it should be printed inside of that, or on a card issued by the dealer/factory within that book. The dealer can also reset this at the shop I believe and reprogram.

Ask how to reset code on keypad, don't have original code, gramma died and nobody knows code, tried everyones b-day nothing worked keys locked inside

You'll need to call a towing service or a locksmith to have the vehicle unlocked. You can then find the code with the information below.

When you bought your vehicle, you were given a
computer code that operates the system for your
vehicle. For your convenience, we have duplicated
this code in three places.
The code is:
- on your owner's wallet card found in the glove
- taped to the right hinge of the trunk lid
- taped to the computer module inside the
driver's door panel

2006 ford explorer computer location? I looked behind the seat belt panel on the passenger side and can't find the factory code to reset keyless entry key pad. I see what looks to be a silver module but...

You go to a dealer with your ID ,title and proof that you own it
They will look up your vehicle, and give you the code that comes
with your owners package when new
They should give you instructions on how to change the
factory code. You need to go around back and talk to a tech
The service adviser will waste your time with a dog and pony

We bought it used and we dont know the keyless

Take the plastic cover off of where the jack / wheel wrench is located on the rear left side. Standing in the back of the vehicle, look forward (toward the steering wheel) and you will see a computer module. The factory code is typed on that module. You might have to "carefully" pry the plastic out and do some mild acrobatics to see the code, but that is where it is. After you find the code, go to your owners manual and reset the code to your own numbers. You will have to do this every time the battery is disconnected, so you might want to just remember the factory code. Good Luck
