Customer Question

Need the keyless entry code for 2008 Taurus X.

Each vehicle equipped with a keypad is programmed with a 5-digit entry code. This code is provided to the customer through a wallet card in the Owner's Literature. In addition, this code is available through a scan tool and is also printed on the SJB label.


If the code is not on the Smart Junction Box Label than the only other way to retrieve is with a scan tool sorry.

Tim, The smart box has multiple stickers. I don't see any 5 digit #s similar to the ones they use to apply inside the deck lids. Is it incorporated in one of those numbers on those stickers
Expert:  Tim replied 7 years ago.
There should be 5 digits that are in bold black lettering.Is there anyway you can take a picture of your box and attach.
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
Tim, I will give it a shot. It may take a few minutes.

Expert:  Tim replied 7 years ago.
Can you send 1 or 2 at a time?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
I tried sending only 1 pic. The box has 2 part# XXXXX I was hoping a Ford tech would have info only available to them. The keyless code is not on this box. I thought if I could avoid the dealer thing I would. If you have more info. on another location. Let me know. It is an 08 Taurus X not the Freestyle.
Expert:  Tim replied 7 years ago.
That is the only place I know of that the sticker is located.If you see any 5 digit numbers that do not have any letters in front of it than try them.Other than that the code will need to be retrieved with the scan tool.

Tired of playing hide and seek. Ford Wins! I guess i'm off to the dealer. Thanks for your Help.

Expert:  Tim replied 7 years ago.
Did you buy the truck from the dealer or buy it used from an individual?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.

Dealer. Not Ford dealer. Fleet lease return. No driver info. Tried that route.

Sorry was just thinking of another possibility
