I think the keypad on my '93 is a Ford product, maybe you could check with a Ford dealer and get some help with the code.

One of my projects on our coach was to install a remote (rf) wireless entry system. Purchased a code-hopping setup on the web, a couple of relays from Radio Shack and then just played around with the locking system until I found the right combination. On our coach there are 3 (if I remember correctly) in the front electrical bay that control the locking system.

We very seldom use the keypad any more. One push opens the door and the second push opens the compartments.

My 97 is also a Ford product. For unknown reasons, it will work fine for a while and then will not. I have a reprogran sheet and have done that many times, only to have it quit again. I keep a spare key in the engine compartment [ not locked ] just in case.

Yes, the keyless entry system is by Ford.

The control module is in the overhead compartment above the driver/co pilot's heads. Look for a box with yellow wires coming out of it. It's close to the dash air components.

If you're lucky, the code is on a sticker on the side of the module.

Thanks John. I will try looking around the bays and other outside compartments to see if they wrote it down.

I just got the rest of the replies. I will also check the overhead compartment and see if the code is on the module. Thanks to everyone for the ideas. I will let everyone know if I find the code and where it was.

I forget, but whatever switch turns off power to the module (the A/T switch for sure, but maybe the switch in the overhead that turns off the clocks, etc.) will cause the temporary password that you program in it to erase. Bascially, if you ever loose power to the keypad module, it will loose any codes you program into it and only the master code that was programmed into will work until you reprogram it again.

Sorry to dig up an oldie, but I am trying to get my keyless entry system functional as well. Mine is a 96', but I get no action from the keypad at all. Does anyone know where the power comes from for this particular system? I'm wondering if I have a bad fuse or what. Of course I still don't know a code, so I have to find that as well, but I would just like to at least have the ability to press the keypad to lock the bays/door. I also have a remote transmitter on my keys that I assume is probably a remote lock transmitter.

I have no information on this system in my Blue Box, so if anyone has any of the directions, that would surely help me.

Thanks

I found the code in the overhead dash on the right side. It is on the main box for the keyless entry. Also, if your not getting power at the keypad it is ran through the a/t switch and the master electric switch. There are 2 relays above the drivers seat that the keypad runs through also.
