Ford Explorer: Doors and Locks / Keyless Entry

Ford Explorer 2020-2023 Owners Manual / Doors and Locks / Keyless Entry

SECURICODE™ Keyless Entry Keypad

The keypad is near the driver window. It illuminates when touched.

Note: If you enter your entry code too fast on the keypad, the unlock function may not work. Enter your entry code again more slowly.

You can use the keypad to do the following:

  • Lock or unlock the doors.
  • Program and erase user codes.
  • Arm and disarm the anti-theft alarm.

You can operate the keypad with the factory-set five-digit entry code. The code is on the owner's wallet card in the glove box and is available from an authorized dealer. You can also program up to five of your own five-digit personal entry codes.

Programming a Personal Entry Code

  1. Enter the factory-set five-digit code.
  2. Press 1·2 on the keypad within five seconds.
  3. Enter your personal five-digit code. You must enter each number within five seconds of each other.
  4. Press 1·2 on the keypad to save personal code 1.

The doors lock then unlock to confirm that programming was successful.

To program additional personal entry codes, repeat steps 1 through 3, then for step 4:

  • Press 3·4 to save personal code 2.
  • Press 5·6 to save personal code 3.
  • Press 7·8 to save personal code 4.
  • Press 9·0 to save personal code 5.

Hints:

  • Do not set a code that uses five of the same number.
  • Do not use five numbers in sequential order.
  • The factory-set code works even if you have set your own personal code.

Erasing a Personal Code

  1. Enter the factory-set five-digit code.
  2. Press and release 1·2 on the keypad within five seconds.
  3. Press and hold 1·2 for two seconds. You must do this within five seconds of completing step 2.

All personal codes erase and only the factory-set five-digit code works.

Anti-Scan Feature

The keypad goes into an anti-scan mode if you enter the wrong code seven times. This mode turns off the keypad for one minute and the keypad lamp flashes.

The anti-scan feature turns off after any of the following occur:

  • One minute of keypad inactivity.
  • You press the unlock button on the remote control.
  • You switch your vehicle on.
  • You unlock the vehicle using intelligent access.

Unlocking Only the Driver Door
