i just bought a 2004 ford f250 and need to know how to reset the code for my keypad.
Programming Personal Codes A unique personal 5-digit code can be programmed by following these steps:
Anti-Scan Feature To provide added security, the keyless entry keypad is disabled for one minute after 35 button presses without a valid entry code being entered. The keyless entry 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:
Unlocking the Doors with the Keyless Entry Keypad System To unlock the driver door, enter either the factory set code or the personal code (each digit must be pressed within 5 seconds of the prior digit). The interior lamps will illuminate.To unlock all doors, enter either the factory set code or the personal code (driver door unlocks) and press the 3/4 control within 5 seconds .Locking the Doors with the Keyless Entry Keypad System It is not necessary to enter the factory set or personal code prior to locking all doors. To lock all doors, press the 7/8 and 9/0 controls at the same time.
i dont know the factory code! i don't have any of the factory info. i bought it used. i need a deafault code to reset it.
You will need to have Ford connect the Scan Tool to retrieve the Factory Code.Sometimes the Code is on the VSM (vehicle security module) label, which is located under driver dash, to the right of steering column.
any other way of doing this without having to take it to ford and pay an arm and a leg.
Ford started in 2004 to "Not" put the Code Number on the VSM & very few were listed.You may want to check in the Glove Box or Owners Manual for any numbers that were written or included on Cards or Papers.........Other than that, Dealer is quickest.
