Are you looking for the keyless entry code for the keypad on the drivers door?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I am.
Expert:  A. Penland replied 2 months ago.

It should have come with the owners manual on a small credit card type card. But if that is no longer there, open the trunk and look on the driver side hinge or on the underside of the trunk lid.

The owners manual didnt come with the car.

Open the trunk and look on the driver side hinge or on the underside of the trunk lid.

That was scraped off.

The only other location is on the keyless entry module. It is in the trunk on the drivers side. Look at the directions below.

Found it but the door still will not open from the outside.
Expert:  A. Penland replied 2 months ago.

Is the code on the module? It should be a 5 digit code.

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
it is.
Expert:  A. Penland replied 2 months ago.

Ok. Check the keypad to make sure it works. You will have to test all 5 buttons. With the doors closed and locked, press one of the buttons and se if it lights up. Then reset it to where it turns off and press another button. Do it for all 5 buttons.

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
All 5 of them light up. It will lock and unlock with the code but the door still doesnt open from the outside.

Does the door open from the inside if the window is down?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
the drivers door opens from the inside with the window down but not the passengers door.
Expert:  A. Penland replied 2 months ago.

Ok, there is a problem with the outside handle on the drivers door and the door latch which is connected by a rod. The rod may have come off the latch or the outside handle.

But to unlock the passenger front door, press the 3/4 button within five seconds after entering the keyless entry code.
