Unless you know the Factory KeyPad code, you cannot Reset or Unlock without it or your Personal Code:



  • The system only allows one personal code to be programmed.
  • Any existing personal code does not need to be erased to program a new code.
  1. Enter the permanent factory remote keyless entry (RKE) keypad code.
  2. Press the 1/2 button within 5 seconds to activate the programming mode. Holding the 1/2 button for more than 2 seconds after activation erases the stored personal code.
  3. Within 5 seconds , enter the new 5-digit RKE keypad code. The door locks lock and unlock to confirm the new code is programmed. Entering any new personal code automatically erases the old personal code.

Reply to Lurch's Post: is there anyway to get the factory code, i bought this suv used and did not get the code from the previous owner

The Code is sometimes located on the Keyless / GEM Module, but can be retrieved by Ford Scan Tool. If the Vehicle is Locked, it would still have to be Opened another way
