I guess it's about "How does the key-pad work" exactly.
Is the only feature is that I punch in a series of numbers and the door un-locks... is that all? The way the author of the article was going on..... and he did mention all the features..etc.
There is a master five digit number that operates the keypad. The end user can also enter their own five digit number if they so choose, but that temporary number can be changed or erased whenever the user wishes. The master five digit number can never be changed or erased.
The keypad will unlock the drivers side door after punching in the five digit master number, or the temporary number the end user has set up.
After either five digit number has been entered, pushing the 3/4 button will unlock the passenger door.
You can also lock all the doors by pushing the 7/8 button and the 9/0 button at the same time.
I think it was the '01 model year that Ford started putting those door handles in the L's.
