2005 Explorer Sport-Trac door code recovery

hey guys and girls this video is about

my 2005 ford explorer sport trac it may

be applicable to other years or models

but that's up to you to find out this

video is for you

if you've either lost forgotten or never

got the key code for your keyless entry

door entry system that looks like this

now first step make sure that keypad

actually works that every button on it

works this is easiest to do in a semi

dark environment by just pressing one

button at a time and seeing if it lights

up that will tell you that the button is

actually doing something online that

action also turns on the interior light

at least on the first button you press

once you're sure the keypad is

operational and you really just need the

code the factory set code then proceed

as follows starting on the driver's side

open your fuse panel by prying with a

screwdriver or other object showing the

area shown by the arrow and rotate it

outward you'll find a fuse number 10 is

for the airbag system this is very

important you take out this fuse and

make sure it's the right one read your

owners manual to be sure now go to the

other side and open the glovebox and

squeeze it gently at these two points so

you can rotate it forward pass the rover

stops you'll end up with something that

looks like this with the glovebox

hanging down by the floor inside you're

going to see a white box with some wires

coming out of it as shown by the arrows

unplug that connector that's the one

that controls your airbag move it out of

the way this is a very important step

just in case you got the wrong fuse then

get your head down on the floor and look

up you'll see this bolt and this one

that hold the airbag in remove those

then then reach up with the fingers of

your left hand push up the air bag from

underneath while holding it from falling

out with your right hand once you rotate

the air bag outward you'll see this

electrical connector on the back that

needs to be unplugged they say not to

handle the air bag by the edges not sure

why just don't once you get it out

you'll see this white box and these two

screws that need to be removed this is

the computer that operates your keyless

entry and when you roll it forward there

you have it

voila there's your secret code right

there in that red box well kind of hard

to see here but I blanked mine out for

obvious reasons use that code to get

into your keyless entry reassemble

everything in reverse order making sure

that the last thing you do is put that

fuse back in and that's it thanks for
