I've always found the the keypads dying on our Bird's to be a strange occurrance, as none of the Ford vehicle keypads I've owned have ever died. And keep them until the wheels fall off! So why do the Bird one's die sooner??

Well, I've taken apart everything I can think of to take apart, and still no module. I pulled the gauge panel from over passengers head, no luck. Pulled entire upper console apart, no luck. I've looked in the heater/A/C compartment in front of passenger, and in the area above the drivers head.

So I'm not sure where else to hunt. Can someone take a picture of their module and send it to me? Maybe I'm overlooking something?!?! My email is

Corey@cwgraham.com

Thanks again

on the 93WB it was behind the panel over the windsheild on the pass. side,the panels behind the doors come right out after removing a few screws,and the module is behind those carpeted panels.
its a small black box with a ford part# on it.

Default Keyless entry

I was reading this thread because I still haven't found any clues in the documents or PO notes as to what the keyless entry code is. My keypad illuminates, aand the doorlocks work fine.
I was searching in the lower cabinet area and discovered the security system, mics and valet switch etc. and also dicovered that the wiring harness had popped of the security system, so all that is good.
I have two fobs that work,

My questions:
When activating the system, it doesn't lock the doors. Should it?
Any further clues where the keyless entry module is hiding on a 2001 LXI?

Thanks in advance

It took us a year to find ours in our '01. It is in the left upper compartment above the driver. Pull the back panel off, it is velcro. The keyless code black box, 3x5, Ford, in the corner. The number is on that. The panel is behind the doorbell box.

The alarm and the ford keypad are not connected. So using the little single button key fob only activates the alarm. It will not lock the door our the bays.

I believe I saw an article we're someone connected them together, so the activation of the alarm locks the door and bays. Will have to see if I can locate it again.

Default Thanks all...another dragon slayed !

John and Cheryl had me look in the overhead bin driver side near the doorbell...it wasn't there either, but I spotted it behind the TV, high up,
...and the code works.

On my 96' I eventually found the door lock/unlock module in the space between the front television and front center cabinet. I had to remove the television and then the panel on the right side...there I found the door unlock module. On the side of the module was a piece of tape with the door unlock code written on it!

As you may or may not know the lock code is 79. Don't test it unless someone is inside the bus or the door is open.

Happy trails,

Eric
