Sorry but I have bad news. Ford does not keep those numbers on record to keep techs honest. They do not want techs to be able to break into anyone's car with just the vin#. The only way to get the code is with access inside the truck. There is a card in the owners manual, a label on the module, and it can be accessed with a diagnostic tool connected.

So that means you need to take the vin# ***** your dealer to get a door key made or call a tow truck or locksmith or AAA to get into the truck.

The most common way they slim jim a door now a days is by spreading the top rear of the drivers door away from the cab about 3/4 inch with a rubber air bag that can be pumped up then a rod is inserted into the door to reach the lock switch. You can try that at home as long as your comfortable doing a procedure like this without the special tools used by the companies mentioned prior.
