2 ways to Find the 5 Digit Default Keyless Code on Ford Explorer or Mercury Mountaineer

Method 1

Using the Owner’s Manual

Look for the factory code. 
Whether you’re the sole owner or have a pre owned car, the Ford Explorer or Mercury Mountaineer will come with a factory code and owner’s manual.
It is recommended that a new owner change the original five-digit factory code.
Hopefully, you have kept the factory code in a safe place.
The 5 digit security code is usually in the glove department if you have not moved the owner’s wallet card.

Method 2

Programming without the Owner’s Manual

Know where to find the factory code. 

Ford Dealers can provide you with the factory code by plugging your vehicle into a computer.
Retrieving the code in this manner may be quite costly.
If the owner’s manual is lost and you do not have the code for Keyless Entry, know that the Remote Anti-theft Personality Module also has the factory code printed on its label.
The RAP is behind a removable panel toward the back left of your vehicle.

Find and remove the panel covering the RAP
Using a flashlight, locate the removable panel and turn two thumb screws counterclockwise to remove the plastic panel.
Shine the flashlight onto the RAP module and look for the label containing the 5 digit factory code.
