I foud my RAP in my 02 F-150 Supercrew. under the dash above the emergency brake pedal. I was able to read it plainly with no flashlight (daytime) and w/o moving any wiring. Thanks to the pics posted by xTraveler, I knew what to look for. Unlock driver door and 3/4 for other three worked on the first try. I'm sure I'll play with the auto-lock at some point.

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
When you are down...look up...get up...and don't ever give up....
Thanks to everyone who has put in their two cents so far. I have tried each of the locations that you guys have suggested and so far have had zero luck.
If anyone has any other ideas I'm all ears. Very frustrating! I hate to remove my stereo unit but that's where I'm headed next if no other ideas surface; I'm also thinking of calling the guy who sold it to me and asking him to pay for me to go to the dealership and get my code!
Just a quick update to this thread... After reading this thread I headed out to our 2003 Expedition to find that code. Looked through the cracks towards the radio... nothing, looked around a bit nothing.. decided to peer over the right kickplate under the dash and BINGO.. there was a solid black box with a Bosch label on it and a 5 Digit code. I decided this might be it and tried the code... Were in business now. We got the Exp last year used from a Toyota dealer.. they wanted $85 to get the code, so being cheap we went to google and now were here with a working code. Thanks to all who posted this thread.
Robert, I also have an '03 but have yet to find the black box you mentioned. Could you post a picture or 2?
Thanks in advance.
Shriner, look directly behind your CD6 player against the firewall. My box was grayish in color. I don't think you will be able to read the code on the box. I simply felt the sticker with the code on it and peeled it off. Once I had it peeled off, I stuck it in the owner's manual for the next owner should I sell.
I tried it again, and after about 30 minutes of looking and probing, I went to Autozone and bought a Radio puller for $3.99 - Pulled the radio, and could not find it. Took my teenage son out with me to look for it... Nothing. I pulled the trash bag holder, the 2 cup beverage holder above it, still nothing.
Really frustrated at this point, then from the passenger side, i shined the flashlight into the trash bag holder toward the front left corner of the truck and saw a black box with a white sticker that was nearly impossible to read, and the print on the sticker was upside down. From the pictures posted, I saw a sticker that resembled the one posted earlier in this thread, and could read all but the last 2 digits, which were hidden from view by a cluster of wires.
Process of elemination, I managed to figure out what the last 2 numbers were. Thanks to all who posted their input, without it I would have never found what I was looking for. After I found it, I told my son where it was, and he was not able to see it... so I Guess this is my lucky day...
