My boyfriend knows the factory reset code. Is there a way to disable the keyless code entry or change the factory code so he cant get inside?

To create your own personal entry code:

Enter the factory-set code.
Press 1. .
Enter your personal 5-digit code. You must enter each number within five seconds of each other.
Press 1. .
The doors will lock and unlock to confirm that you have successfully programmed a personal entry code.

My keyless remotes rarely work. When they do it is usuallly while it is inside the vehicle near the ignition.I have walked around the vehicle and it does not appear to be a "deadspot" issue.I have replaced the batteries in the remotes and reprogrammed them. I would be grateful for any help.

Thank you

It seems to me that you have a problem with the sensitivity on the alarm receiver. You may locate the alarm module and check the antena wiring. To me, it seems you have a after market alarm. Look under the dash board to see if the module is there.

When I lock or unlock my doors the lights come on but no chirp sound is made. Also my theft light is blinking, but I dont think my alarm is working.

2000 Ford Explorer V8 All Wheel Drive Automatic 135k miles

All of a sudden my keypad on the outside of the drivers door as well as my keychain will not lock the doors but they both will unlock with out any issues. I am able to lock the doors from the inside. Could something inside the drivers door be unpluged?

I have recently purchased a 2005 F-150. It has the anti-theft system, but does not have the keyless entry. It also has electric door locks. Can the Remote Module be removed from my 1998 explorer and installed in the f-150?

The module from your old vehicle will not fit the F150. Remote entry is an option avaliable on this model. Check with a dealer if your vehicle has it installed. The remote may just have been lost before you bought the vehicle?

Handles, Locks, Latches and Entry Systems F150

The hood latch system contains a latch fastened to the body and a hood latch striker attached to the hood. The latch is controlled by a primary and a secondary hood latch release handle and cables.
The front door entry system contains a latch that is fastened to the inside of the door frame and is controlled by the exterior and interior door handles. The latch contains a door ajar switch and a door lock actuator. The front doors can be locked/unlocked by the remote keyless entry (RKE) transmitter, the RKE keypad, the door lock control switch or the door lock cylinder.
The regular cab rear door handles fasten on the inside of the door frame. The handle is a shut face design with 2 cable-actuated latches. The top latch is fastened to the exterior of the door frame and the bottom latch is fastened to the inside of the door frame.
The SuperCab rear door handles fasten on the exterior of the door frame. The handle is dual-action design with 2 cable-actuated latches. The top latch is fastened to the exterior of the door frame and the bottom latch is fastened to the inside of the door frame. The interlock is actuated by a rod that is attached to the latch remote control assembly.
The SuperCrew rear door entry system contains a latch that is fastened to the inside of the door frame and controlled by the exterior and interior door handles. The latch contains a door ajar switch and a door lock actuator. The rear doors can be locked/unlocked by the RKE transmitter, the RKE keypad, or the door lock control switch. The rear doors have a manual lock on the inside of the rear door frame as a child safety lock feature.
The tailgate release handle is integrated with a lock cylinder. The 2 latches are actuated by 2 actuating rods that are controlled by the release handle and remote control.
To prevent theft of the spare tire, the vehicle is equipped with a spare tire lock cylinder.

Principles of Operation
Power Locks
The power lock/unlock feature requests all of the vehicle doors to lock or unlock upon a request from the door lock control switch, remote keyless entry (RKE) keypad, or RKE transmitter. Power locking and unlocking functions independently of the key position, vehicle speed, or transmission position. The vehicle security module activates internal relays to supply the correct power and grounds for the door lock actuators.

Hi
I replaced battery in my 1997 Ford explorer. I found remote keyless entry stopped working. I press Lock/Unlock/Panic on my remote, the car doesn't respond. I am able to lock/unlock using the button inside the car, but not from the remote. I put new batteries in my remote. That didn't make any difference. I have two remotes. I tried another remote. That didn't work either.

I asked auto repair shop. The guy said the diag costs $90. If it is blown fuse, he will do it for $10.
I don't want to sign up for $90 job.

Is there anything I can try?

Before we start replacing things try reprograming the remotes like I posted. Let me know what you find.

My son purchased a 1997 Explorer from a Used Car Dealer. There is no manual or paperwork regarding the keyless entry on the drivers door. How do we obtain this code in the event he locks himself out?
Thank You,
BWS
