Please do not get upset, but Ford does not keep on file the keyless entry code. The only thing they keep on file is the actual metal key code which only a dealership service manager has security access to through Ford Motor Company. They will need for you to prove you own the vehicle and they will get the key code on line and have a key cut to match your vehicle through the parts department. If you have AAA road side service, they will send a locksmith to unlock your vehicle for you for free.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
