On my 2010 ford escape XLT i found the keyless entry code printed on a label on the smart junction box which is inside the center console. To get to the smart junction box follow these instructions.
1. with a non-marring tool(i used a putty knike wrapped in plastic wrap), pry up the chrome trim piece around the shifter.
2. Remove the storage tray from underneath the center console armrest and leave the armrest cover open.
3. Grab the center console finish panel near the cupholders and pull straight up.
4. Pull the finish panel up and back then set it aside.
5. The smart junction box is to the right and slightly ahead of the gear shifter. There should be a label with a bar code that says FoMoCo. In the corner of this label is a 5 digit number. This is the factory code.
Hope this helps.

Where is the factory preset code for keyless entry on a 2012 ford escape located?


The original door code was indeed on a card with the owners manual. If that is gone, the door code is on a module inside the center console on 2008-2012 Ford Escapes. There is a discussion with pictures at one of the Escape forums: http://www.escape-city.com/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=8215

I bought a 99 expedition used... can i reset the keyless door entry pad?


I did a search and found this answer for you

Here is the location with full instructions:
The module is fastened to the top of the firewall directly behind the fuse box. It can be reached easily when you lie on your back in the driver floor area with your head close to the brake pedal. Just look up and you'll see it is clearly marked and the sticker also displays the factory-set access code for your truck.
Once you locate the module Make a note of the 5-digit access code on it.
Once you find the code, here is how to program it:

Now that you have the codes follow these steps to operate it completely. Remember from the driver's door, all operations must start with the 5 digit code first then follow it with the other options.
When pressing the controls on the keyless entry keypad, press the middle of the buttons to ensure a good activation.

IMPORTANT: Every step outlined in every procedure below must be done within five (5) seconds of the previous step.

REMEMBER THIS: If you try the factory code first and it doesn't work try to reset the keypad back to the factory code. Your personal code does not replace the factory-set code. So no matter what you can erase anyone's code back to the factory OEM setting. You can use either code to unlock your vehicle. Each time you set a new personal code the module will erase the previous one in favor of the new code.

Deprogramming (erasing) your own or pre-set personal code and leaving only the factory-set
1. Enter the factory-set code. (5 digit) from the sticker on the RAP module.
2. Press the 1/2 control.
3. Press the 7/8 and 9/0 controls at the same time.
The system will now only respond to the factory-set code.

Unlocking the driver's door (also disarms the perimeter alarm system)
1. Enter either the factory-set code or your new personal code. The interior lights will illuminate as soon as the first valid digit is pressed.

Unlocking all doors
1. Unlock the driver's door (5 digit code) then press the 3/4 control.

Locking the doors (also arms the perimeter alarm system)
1. Press 7/8 and 9/0 controls at the same time. The 5-digit code does not have to be entered.

Deactivating/Activating Auto lock
1. Enter the five (5) digit code.
2. Press and release the 3/4 control while holding the 7/8 control, then release 7/8.

Programming your own personal entry code
1. Enter the factory-set code (keypad will illuminate when first digit is pressed).
2. Press the 1/2 control.
3. Enter your personal 5-digit code.

Reset Door Code 2010 F250


Location of Keyless Code on Computer Module of Ford F250 Superduty ( 2009 )

Finding this code seems to be a common problem, so, here is a better answer to save you the time I spent locating the sticker on the computer module that shows the keyless entry code.

One owners from 2008 F150 XLT Superduty tell me and I suspect the location for a F150 would be very near same location as on a F250

The computer module is mounted high on the firewall approximately behind the a/c fan speed control knob. Here is how to find it / get to it:

1. Remove the large cover under the steering column that covers the fuse block. You'll need to reach in under the dash, with your left arm, to the right of the steering column and left of center to move stuff to get a clear view.

2. Open the storage pocket door on the lower edge of the dash (right of the steering column) and squeeze the back side of the storage pocket to allow the stops to pass to the front. This will allow the opening to be clear to see the computer module up in the dash. Shine your flash light through this opening.

3. Move the first piece of white insulation to the side to see the firewall. Look up through the pocket door, moving the wiring harnesses aside if necessary. You'll find a second white insulation wrapped snugly across the computer module. When you push the insulation up to see the flat surface, you see the 5 digit number printed up-side-down in black on a white sticker. This is your keyless entry code.

Instructions for Programming Keyless Entry Code (from the 2008 Owner's Manual)

KEYLESS ENTRY SYSTEM (IF EQUIPPED)
You can use the keyless entry keypad to lock or unlock the doors without using a key.

The keypad can be operated with the factory set 5–digit entry code; this code is located on the owner’s wallet card in the glove box, is marked on the computer module, and is available from your authorized dealer. You can also create your own 5–digit personal entry code.

When pressing the controls on the keypad, press the middle of the controls to ensure a good activation.

Programming a personal entry code
To create your own personal entry code:
1. Enter the factory set code. The driver door will unlock.

2. Within five seconds press the 1 • 2 on the keypad.

3. Enter your personal 5-digit code. Each number must be entered within five seconds of each other.

4. The doors will lock then unlock to confirm that your personal keycode has been programmed into the module.

Tips:
• Do not set a code that uses five of the same number.
• Do not use five numbers in sequential order.


Good Luck (remember comment and rated this).

2001 ford explorer sport, door keypad reset


How to find the Security Keyless Keypad Code on the 1995-2001 Ford Explorer or Mountaineer and how to use the Keypad functions. The factory code is also printed on a label which is installed on the Remote Anti-theft Personality (RAP) Module. This is the module that controls the keyless entry system. It is located in the left rear quarter behind the removable panel (see photo). You will need to turn the two thumb screws counter clockwise and take the plastic panel off to be able to see the unit. A flashlight may be helpful in seeing the code. You are looking for the module and the 5 digit code on it like the one shown below.

Now that you’ve got the code I’ll tell you how to use the Keyless entry and set-up your own code.Make sure when pressing the controls on the keyless entry keypad you press the middle of the buttons to ensure good contact with the controls.

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.
