Keypad, PATS, RAP, GEM, and stickers

Hi guys. I know this has been on the board before, but there is a lot of information, and a lot of it contradicts itself. I am on a mission now, and I can't turn back. Involved is a 2000 Ford Excursion Limited 4WD, otherwise known as Nicky. Nicky hasn't been taken care of well. I am slowly but surely bringing him back to his former self. I figured one of the first things to do is to get all the locks so that they will, in fact, lock. It took rebuilding all the actuators and degunking all the cylinders. they all work now, and with the help of Amazon, they all open by the $16.00 Fobs that I bought. Also thanks to Prime AutoGroup I and 1 Benjamin, I know have 2 chip keys. There is one step left. The keypad on the door. As you would expect, the factory code card that came with the Vehicle back in 2000 is long gone. According to several posts here, and on another Ford Truck board, there are several people who have recovered the factory code from modules located throughout the vehicle, mostly behind the dash. Well I have now removed the upper and lower dash, and followed every post I could find, comparing the information to wiring diagrams and location drawings of the dash area. First and most important, the wiring diagram indicates that all the lock cabling connects directly to the GEM. There is no RAP in an Excursion, to the best of my knowledge. I mention this because it has been indicated in several places that a sticker exists with the factory code, on the RAP module in the Excursion. There is even a Ford Tech that indicates this on JustAnswer.com, but I think he was referring to an F-350 while answering an Excursion question. I don't know. Someone also mentioned that the sticker was on the GEM module. It isn't there either. So my questions are:
1. Does someone with a 2000 Excursion who has gone about looking for the 5 digit factory code on a sticker somewhere under the dash been successful?
2. If you have been successful, can you tell me where you found it?
The pictures below show the GEM module with no number on the sticker, The Pats module with the cover removed, the only module behind the radio, which was also referred to on posts, with its cover removed, and the level of disassembly.
Thanks for any help possible!

Somewhere on this site is a sequence of numbers that you can punch into your keypad to find the code. It basically sequences through every possible combination of codes. If you're lucky you'll hit you number right away, if not, it might take 30 minutes or more.

Here's the thread with the sequence (see post #17).

Welcome to FTE!

Besides the thread luxury posted, there is another one with 30-odd pages of posts. Good reading if you're insomniac, in prison, confined to bed, etc.

Just help you stop looking, AFAIK, some early Ex's do not have the code # recorded. So go to the link/post#17. I did a cut n paste and printed in a larger font, got my wife to read while I punched in the #'s. 10 minutes & 20 expletives later the lock popped open !

The keypad is a great feature, we use it a LOT.

Thumbs up Resolution

Hey Luxury and Howler 4X4.
I am pleased to say that after 50 minutes, my wife and I put in enough codes to open the locks. I was beginning to think that the keypad was defective, because we were more than 2/3 of the way through, then click. What a treat to my ears!
So project three done, and only about 30 more to go! Can't wait to see how this X turns out. Such a great vehicle!
Thanks very much for both of your help and insight!

Did you write the code down for future reference? Would suck to have to go through it all over again...

Talking

OMG you aren't kidding! Yea I wrote it down and put a copy in my desk, and with an engraving tool, tattooed it on the undercarriage. It turns out the way the numbers aligned for the code is a really easy number to remember anyway, So I don't think I will be forgetting it anytime soon. For anyone else that is in this situation, I took all the numbers on that list, divided them into 5 digit sequences, sorted them into codes that began with 11, 13, 15, 17, 19, and all others, and put them on an excel spreadsheet. I would be pleased to share it with any other Ford owner.

My e-mail is cjd5258@hotmail.com. I can send you the excel spreadsheet with all the combinations on it. It will take a little bit of time, but it's worth it.

Just so no one overlooks the obvious, when I got my 2000 Excursion earlier this year, I found my code on a card in the zip up driver's manual in the glove box. (Yeah, I know...not everyone is that lucky. But some people might not look there first.)
