To start, scan your owner’s manual and owner’s wallet card for the printed five-digit factory default code. This is the easiest way to track down your factory code, but there are still other options if your manual has been misplaced.
Remote Anti-theft Personality Module
If the owner’s manual is lost, your vehicle’s default factory code can also be found on the label of the Remote Anti-Theft Personality (RAP) module. The RAP is generally hidden beneath a removable panel found toward the back of your vehicle. Remove the panel with a screwdriver and locate the printed 5-digit factory code.
Call Your Ford Dealer
If all else fails, reach out to your local Ford dealer for assistance. Your Ford mechanic will be able to retrieve your factory default code using your VIN number or hook your vehicle up to a computer and manually reset your SecuriCode™ keyless entry system.
