If you have the keyless entry key pad, can you deactivate it by the keypad procedure on page 106 of the owners manual?

Can you give me the VIN #? I want to do some digging through Fords website which is VIN# *****

Also, I cannot see your vehicle. Some Freestars came with keyless enter key pads and some did not.That is why I stated if you have keyless entry. Sometimes, if you cannot deactivate with the door lock switches and the keys, then try the keypad, but yours does not have one.

That is correct. I have thought about trying with my key fob remote for lock/unlock in the proceedure.
