I really don't want you to pay me for this because a call to your Bobcat dealer service manager could confirm this, but I'm near certain the user codes and master code is stored in the main controller (ECU) on the machine. The keypad simply communicates (sends inputs) to the main controller, it doesn't store information, storing information is the task of the main controller. Don't give me a rating on this question and you won't be paying me anything, the only way I get paid is if you give me a positive rating.

I hope you get it sorted out. I hate thieves. Like I said, I'm near certain the codes are stored in the main controller, but that's of little comfort when you have to purchase a new key pad console because someone lifted yours. Did I mention I hate thieves?

Hi, purchased a new keyless pannel and it worked fine. Pannel wasn't cheap but happy it worked without having to get tech onsite.Thanks, Doug
