I found new info and it looks like things changed with the 2007, if someone knows different please advise. Here is what I found on another Q&A on another web site.
"Code is part of the module and is burned internally to the module with no code on the outside of the module that I am aware of (It's a fuse box/ security module built together) So a trip to the dealer is guaranteed in your future"
update: I tracked down the previous owner and they gave me the code...so I still saved the $83 the local stealer was going to charge me.
I went to my local Ford dealer (which I didn't buy my used 2007) asked for the code and 15 minutes later I had the code and it didn't cost me a dime. With there helpful additude they gained a costumer. If a service manager is going to nickel and dime you...check out their competitor. Just my two cents.
Sounds like you have a good dealer that wants you as a customer. On our '01 sable, the code is taped to the computer box. Every now and then, I need to get down and remind myself what it is. Don't get me wrong, the number is easy, it's just that I use the keypad so often, I just can't remember the code!!!
