Excursion Keypad Code Reset

My coworker purchased a 2002 Ford Excursion with the driver door keypad entry and he doesn't have the code. The truck was bought as a repo, he has no manuals for it.

Two trips to CAL's here in Anchorage didn't help. Once the service department said he couldn't give him the fix unless he had the title in hand to prove ownership, even though he had registration, keys and was paying for service! The second time, yesterday the guy said if the vehicle was in their database they may be able to help (it was purchased new from them) but when the truck was picked up they didn't provide it! He gave some BS about needing an expensive devise to extract data, which they don't have.

What gives here?? Isn't there a procedure to reset the code?

Can anyone help?

Thanks, Larry

No way to reset it. Your friend will have to go to a Dealer and have them get it from the security module.Takes about 15 min or so. Or if you feel like having fun you the # should be on the module if you can find it. I think it's in the right rear behind the trim panels.

Happy Hunting!

Let me start by saying mine was not there and most don't have it. Now behind the radio on the firewall is where the keyless module is, on that box is where the code will be if it was put there from the factory. Some times it is on the front some times on the back of it and most times not at all but it is worth a look. It is a PITA to get to esp if you have big arms. It will be 5 big numbers.

To pull the code the dealer will plug in and it takes 5 min! I watched! They told me an hour and that is BS, as said I watched they plugged in at 1:05 and unplugged at 1:10 with code in hand. I had a friend do it for free on the side because the dealer wanted 80 bucks the ******.

I don't know about trucks, but on many Ford cars the code can be found on a sticker in the trunk. Look around similar places (where's the fuel pump inertia switch?) & you might get lucky.

jimfulco they no longer do that. When you buy new you are now given what looks like a credit card. I guess by putting the code where you could find it they were loosing money.

There are 3 ways to access the code. There was originally a credit card size card in the glove box on new delivery. It has the 5 digit code# on it. If thats not available, you need the dealer to use the NGS or WDS (code readers) to access the code, (only takes 5 secs to access). The last way is to get behind the radio and A/C control panel and find the central security module and get the code off the sticker. The central security module has 3 rectangle connectors going to it.

You can redo the module if you are good with electronic circuit boards they have resistores,one for each code.I found this out on my SHO when I was in need of the code for it. Fortunatley I was able to find the sticker.Let me see if I can find the link to DIY but it would probably be more feasible to let the dealer do it.

This may be way different now from when this was submitted.http://webpages.cwia.com/~bdklein/sho.htm


It keeps showing a bad link when I click it,although I copied it from there. Go to Shotimes,search box,type in "Keyless Entry".

It will bring it up there.

Try calling NYE frontier ford out in wasilla-palmer area. I know its a bit of a drive but they usually offer better service.
