Many models list this code on the production list of options on the cover plate to the spare tire/wheel...As a last resort, you can contact Ford, as the new owner and request the code directly from Ford...Most Ford Dealers are helpful to retrieve this also...you can check your system by pressing #8 then #9 on your door keypad, and this automatically locks all your doors. Good Luck, the Explorer is an excellent choice...Hope this helps. Also ask your Ford Dealer for the operators manual for this...
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 compartment - taped to the right hinge of the trunk lid - taped to the computer module inside the driver's door panel
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
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
