I'm assuming you bought the car somewhere other than a Ford/Lincoln dealer (which is OK) because I would expect a Ford/Lincoln dealer to provide all three keys, two remotes, a manual, etc as well as the lock code. I too just purchased an 07 TC. The dealer provided the code for me, but said there are three ways to determine the code (in order of preference):

1. Usually there is a white unlabeled paper sticker with the code number (5 digits) on one of the trunk hinges, but often times it is removed when the car is detailed or the previous owner may have removed it.

2. There may be another similar sticker on the control unit on the right side fender under the hood, again same scenario as above.

3. Any Ford/Lincoln/Mercury dealer can pull the code from the car computer, hopefully for free or nearly free if the car is still under factory warranty, regardless of where you purchased your car.

If you're stuck with option three, particularly if the factory warranty is still good, and even if it isn't, put on a clean shirt, be nice but make 'em step up. After all, even though we may have paid alot less now, these cars MSRP was $45,000 and up only a year ago so they should still treat you and me like gold.

Best of Luck!

    Bought from dealer with no keyless entry. alarm activates when doors are locked with power doorlock system. alarm sounds when we open the door. how do we de-activate the alarm before unlocking the door?


    Opening the drivers door with the key is supposed to shut down the factory security but the drivers key cylinder usually goes bad. You will have to unlock the rear tail gate lock cylinder with the key and that will shut down the factory security, before opening the drivers door.Your other option is to have an aftermarket keyless entry system installed, which will open the doors remotely while shut down the factory security at the same time.

    I bought a used 2008 ford escape. No owners manual. How do I reset the keyless entry. I don't know the original code.


    did you mean the key pad on the door? if it is then you need to track down the original owner to give you the factory code then you can program up to 3 codes.
    give the local dealer a call to see if they can run the VIN number for a factory code, they may charge you a fee.
    if you bought it from a dealer then they must take care of that for you at no charge.
    otherwise you will need to replace the key pad.

    I don't have a manual for my 2004 lincoln Avaitor but would like to know how I can change the code on the drives door key pad


    KEYLESS ENTRY SYSTEM With the keyless entry keypad, you can: • lock or unlock the vehicle doors without using the key. Your vehicle has a factory set 5 digit code that operates the keyless entry system. You can also program your own 5 digit personal entry code. The factory-set code is located: • on the owner's wallet card in the glove compartment • or at your dealer. When pressing the controls on the keyless entry keypad, press the middle of the controls to ensure a good activation. This system will disable the power door lock controls. These will not work until the vehicle is disarmed. Programming your own personal entry code To program your own code: 5. Enter factory set code (keypad will illuminate when pressed). 6. Press 1/2 control within five seconds of step 1. 7. Enter your personal 5 digit code. Enter each digit within five seconds of previous one. 8. After the code is entered, the locks will cycle, confirming that the new code has been set. Do not set a code that includes five of the same number or presents them in sequential order. Thieves can easily figure out these types of codes. Your personal code does not replace the permanent code that the dealership gave you. You can use either code to unlock your vehicle. If a second personal code is entered, the module will erase the first personal code in favor of the new code. Locks and Security 149 Locks and Security If you wish to erase your personal code, use the following instructions: 1. Enter factory set code. 2. Press 1/2 control and release. The system will now only respond to the factory set code. Anti-scan feature The anti-scan feature prevents repeated attempts at arriving at a valid key code. The keyless entry pad is disabled for 1 minute after 7 unsuccessful attempts (35 consecutive button presses) at entering a valid key code. The keypad will flash during this 1 minute mode. However, the 7/8 and 9/0 controls will still lock the vehicle. Anti-scan will be turned off after: • one minute of keypad inactivity. • the remote entry transmitter UNLOCK button is pressed. • the ignition is turned to the ON position. Unlocking the doors with the keyless entry system To unlock the driver door, enter either the factory set code or the personal code (each digit must be pressed within five seconds of the prior digit). The interior lamps will also illuminate. To unlock all doors, enter the factory set code or personal code (driver door unlocks) and press the 3/4 control within five seconds. Locking the doors with the keyless entry system It is not necessary to enter the factory or personal code prior to locking all doors. To lock the doors: • with the driver's door closed, press the 7/8 control and the 9/0 control at the same time.

    How do i reprogram keyless entry codes


    door pad keyless codes?

    in owner manual, enter permanent code and then press "1" and enter personal code, then press "1" again. Then both codes will work.

    If you don't have manual, go to Motorcraft.com and click on technical resources and click on your year owner manual.

    ---------------------------------------------
    Each vehicle equipped with a keyless entry keypad is programmed with a five-digit entry code. This code is provided to the customer through a wallet card in the Owner Literature package. In addition, this code is available through a diagnostic tool and is also printed on the vehicle security module label. When entering codes each digit must be entered within five seconds of the previous button press.

    1. Enter the factory set five-digit code (the keypad will illuminate when pressed).
    1. Press 1/2 within five seconds of Step 1.
    1. Enter the unique five-digit code.

    1. Enter factory set five-digit code.
    1. Press 1/2 within five seconds of Step 1.
    1. Press 7/8 and 9/0 at the same time within five seconds of Step 2.
    The system will now only respond to the factory set code.
    Anti-Scan Feature
    To provide added security, the keyless entry pad is disabled for one minute after 35 button presses without a valid entry code being entered. The keypad will flash during this one-minute mode with all functionality disabled except for 7/8 and 9/0 still being allowed to lock the vehicle.
    Anti-Scan will be turned off after any of the following events:
    • one minute of keypad inactivity
    • the keyless entry remote transmitter UNLOCK button is pressed
    • the ignition is turned to the ON position.
    Unlocking the Doors with the Keyless Entry Keypad System
