I have a 1999 Ford Expedition. It has one of those 5 pad touch keys with 1-10 on them.


Anyone know the default number to enter my doors using these pads?

Should be in glove compartment on paper label. (5 digit) May also be somewhere on side of rear door. Couple other places but don't remember them. Not visible from outside for obvious reasons.
HTH.

Your dealer can reset it, it'll cost ya at least $50, it's like losing a PATS key. They get to reprogram it and you get to pay a bit of cash.

Edited to add:
I might just be wrong on this. I'll check the owners manual in our 00 expedition when the wife gets home from work this morning....

Why don't you know the number?

You should be able to locate it on the vehicle - in the glove compartment, under the hood, in the trunk. You can also customize the number - pretty simple to do.

I have a 1999 Crown Vic, and although I haven't looked in a long time, I believe the number is on the inside of the trunk (which of course, you don't have on an Expedition). Some of the car makers used to put them on the inside of the driver's door, but as was already stated, they're usually not easily seen. I changed mine years ago, and I think if you just called a local Ford dealer, or went to the delaership, they could at least show you how to change the code (it's pretty easy, as I remember).

I think it's 66666

Two places to try:

One, check behind the rear trim panel in the back of the Expedition (the cargo area) on the driver's side. Some people have reported it stamped in the insulation there.

Two, check the "security module". It's a black box, and it should be behind the right-hand kick panel, high up above the fuse box. Should be on a sticker.

Good luck. My Dad's 1999 Mercury Moutaineer (basically a Ford Explorer) had it back in the cargo area (that's where his security module was located). Pulled that panel, and there it was plain as day, on a sticker.

If you have the owners manual, it should tell you where to find the number. Some vehicles have a card similar to a credit card with the number on it. This is usually with the owners manual and other info you find in the glove compartment.

^^^^^^^^^ It's in your owners pouch of info, it will walk you through changing it. If anyone pays a dealer $50 to do this 2 minute job or the dealer doesn't do it for free as a good will gesture then they are asshats.

I had a one that was under the trunk lid, try looking around under the hatch on the under side like where you would put your hand to lift it.
