Details: 2006 Ford Explorer Keyless Entry Module Location w/ 5 digit code
Hey Copedawg, I must be one step beyond finding the code. I saw the bar code...but not the 5 digit code. Just to be sure, this is where I am at this point: I pulled the kick panel off under the steering wheel (the one where the hood release is). I looked up and saw a black plastic casing that encased a circuit board with a fuse block on the bottom. On the black casing I also see a bar code and tried taking a mirror to look behind this casing, on the sides, and of course on the front. I pulled the removable cover which houses the fuses on the bottom of the black casing. Still, I have not seen the code? Can you help a little further?
I ended up taking mine to the dealership to get the code retrieved since Carmax was covering this under warranty.
BUT!!!! A couple weeks later I was looking for something in my center console and there was the code on the underside of the console lid!!! It was on a small white sticker. So if you have the center console (between the 2 front seats), then check under the lid!
I dont see any stickers showing did you have to disassemble any parts?
NoI didn't have to disassemle anything. Sorry that didn't work out for you. I bought the vehicle pre-owned from Carmax so perhaps the original owner had placed it there? Anyway, I didn't have luck finding it where the previous posters had described. If you know anyone who can access the vehicle's cpu, they can retrieve it (hopefully free or at a discount). Otherwise, I think the dealership charged Carmax (in my case) $50 to retrieve the code.
If I hadn't had mine covered under warranty I would have searched the net 'thoroughly' before spending 50 bucks!! Good luck man! I know there's someone out there who can solve this for you without spending the 50 bucks.
I tried to restore my faith in my ford dealer; here in Deland fl. last time I was there for service, I was escorted off the property. My truck was there because it was involved in an front end accident in which the passenger side wheel took the blunt of the accident, the rack was sheared in half plus wheel was cracked, and arm ripped off, and they tried charging me $1800.00 for a new rack saying that it was not accident related, not to mention that it came off the alignment rack with a cracked rack ready to be given back to me, also they gave me the base model front end without fog lights, they threw away my factory fog lights because they were rusty, and gave me a base front end, long story short, I explained the horrible service I had to see if they would hook me up with the code, so that we could become friendly again, so that I can take my new truck there for service, they said no that it would cost 85.00 bucks. Looks like I will be buying a flexible camera from home depot, to try and read the code from the SJB before I try and remove it. I will keep you posted if it works
2007, mecury mountaineer, ford explorer, door keyless entry code is located on the fuse panel under driver side dashboard, it is called SJB smart junction box, it is a 5 digit code printed about 1 inch from the bottom of the fuse block, you can not see the number off hand because it faces the metal frame of the car. stick your cell phone between the car and the fuse panel and start taking pictures! here is a picture.
it is located on the smart junction box (sjb)
I used my camera like this to get the code printed on the sticker. (Note this is just an example; this explorer did not have a keypad option so there is no 5 digit code on this sticker but it would be there if it did)
here is another picture on an 07, I think after 07 they went to the sticker method.
this picture was taken again near the e-brake pedal. I blured out the rest of the code.
Zoomed in on photo
as you can see there is the code in less than 5 minutes, and no tools required.
