Customer Question

Hi, I have purchased a used 2004 Ford Escape, which has a numeric keypad on the door, but I don't have the code for it. How can I retrieve the factory code?

Hello, you can check to see if the previous owner left the 5 digit code keycard inside the owners manual. If not either a dealer will have to pull the keycode with their scan tool or attempt to see if you can read the number off the keyless entry module behind the dash which is diffiicult to get to and the number may no longer be legible. The easiet thing to do would be to have a dealer pull the keycode.
