About the programing procedure, read this info... Programming a PATS II Key

Ordered a PATS II key ( Passive Anti Theft System ) from Torrie McPhail at Ford Parts Network ( ). The key, cut for the truck ( using the VIN ), shipped to door was only $24.85. Ford Parts Network is a great company to do business with; highly recommended.

I am able to program the new key ( PATS II ) myself ( on my 99 ) since I have two good ( programmed ) keys, if I had only one key, it would have been necessary to have a Ford dealer or specialty locksmith make the key ( unless the truck was a pre 98 with a PATS I system; then only one good key is needed ). I have been told that the cost of this programming and a key is around $100.

The programming procedure is as follows: insert the first good key turn it to the run position wait until the security light goes out, turn to lock and remove the key'; now insert the second good key and repeat the step; finally insert the new key and repeat. The security light will light up for three seconds to indicate that the new key has been successfully programmed.

That's all there is to programming the new key; total time less than one minute.

Moral of this story - even if you have two good keys, order another ( or 2 ) and program them yourself and avoid future headaches and expense.

Hope helps.

Go to dealer and bring your proof of id and paper work for vehicle. There maybe an additional programing fee, this is normal protocol. Or try a local locksmith but make sure you tell them over the phone your vehicle info.

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

  • 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.
  • 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.

I lost the chipkey to my2000 explorer.tried to get one programed

No you will need the key with the chip in it or the truck will not run. The key has a transmitter in it and when you put it in the ignition it sends a freqwency out and that is how the truck starts or dosent get stolen if ya dont got the key.
