Keyless Entry Lost Code

I have a 2003 Explorer with the Factory Keyless Entry on the driver's door. It recently quit working with either my code or the factory code. I have cleared my code, and the only response is that the keypad will light up, and I can lock all doors with the pad. It refuses to take a code to unlock. Any ideas other than the dealer route ( and a possible new GEM)? The wireless remotes continue to work well. Thanks for your help!!!

What happens if you disconnect the battery for 30 minutes?

Chances are one of the buttons has quit working, test each button while the lights are off, if you find one doesn’t trigger the lights to come on you've found your problem.

the button contacts are a very weak point in those pads. Sometimes moisture gets behind there and corrodes them. You might try to locate the GEM under the dash.. it should have the factory code printed on the housing. You might be punching in the wrong code.

Good luck

I bought a lease back 03 Sport Track XLT - without an owners manuel - can someone advise me on how to reset my keypad so I can utilize this?

Also, having difficulty with my tonneau cover - removed it completely to move some furniture and once back in place - have been having difficulty with locking the set next to the cab - the other end locks fine?

one more question!!! how does the Shuffle for the 6 CD work??? I was told to push one and load - push two and load etc....haven't been able to try it just yet today -

So any ideas on the above would be awesome - thanks!

Here you go...

Once you enter the code, the driver's door will unlock. If you press the 3-4 button within 5 seconds, the other doors will unlock. Press the 5-6 button within 5 seconds, and the rear window will release. Press the 7-8 button within 5 seconds, and the front bumper falls off. No- just kidding. Actually, if you press the 7-8 and 9-0 buttons together, it will lock all the doors. If you want to add your own personal code, enter the code you found on the module, and then press 1. Within 5 seconds, enter the 5-digit code you want to add. The doors will lock, then unlock, confirming it has accepted the new additional code. Now both codes will work, and entering your own personal code is the same as entering the master code. To unlock the other doors, press 3-4 within 5 seconds, etc... Be careful in the personal code you choose; you can't use 5 of the same number (77777, for example), and don't use one that goes in sequence (14580, for example). People will come up and tend to push the buttons in sequence to try and get in.

Have you tried pressing the 7-8 and 9-0 buttons at the same time to see if that locks all doors? Make sure you don't lock the keys in the truck when doing this! The backlighting for the keypad buttons should come on as well.

If that locks all doors, then at least you know the keypad is connected and the RKE system is at least partially working. If that does not work, then you might start by checking fuses. The next step might be to inspect the wires in the accordion boot for ones that are broken or have kinks, indicating broken copper under the insulation.

Is there any evidence this door has been replaced?

Yep, I should be able to provide the factory wiring diagram for the keypad. Just sent me a Private Message with the request AND an e-mail address to send the PDF to.
