On most Fords you have the option of changing the code so you don't have to carry the card with the unlock code

Ford owners don't have that issue. Lucky for you it got resolved quickly.

That is always a worry with 2 legged and 4 legged kids. I miss my keyless entry on my old truck. Although one time we had a snowstorm and my truck was at the dealer getting some work done. It was ready but I had my DH's Camaro which is not a good idea to drive in snow. I managed to get to the truck after being towed up a hill by a kind gentleman in a shiny white ford truck. The dealership was closed but they had locked the keys in my truck for me to get when I used the keypad to get in. Nope. The keypad was frozen from freezing rain. No way the Camaro was making the drive home. A kind gentleman gave me a ride in his nice new truck. Got home safely. No car at home. Neighbor Took us to get the truck the next day. The lock was defrosted by then. Learned my lesson about relying on the keyless number pad.

Good grief!



That is bunch of effort right there....

I keep a spare in the MH for the Toad and Vice Versa. Why yes, our dog thinks it's funny to lock us out when we go for a walk without him too.

Three Fords

I have 3 Fords ALL with Keyless entry all set to the same code. Use it all the time. Don't forget, after you enter your code you can hit the 3-4 button and it will unlock ALL the doors. Other numbers do additional things. The keyless entry is a big factor for me when I buy a car, hence 3 Fords. That along with living in a small town with only a GM/Dodge and Ford dealership.

Love my Wildcat 295RSX!
X2 - love my Ford's combo lock. I woud like to put one on my Solera now. On my last trip I dropped my keys while walking the dogs at night.I was really tired and that was the last thing I wanted to be doing was to be retracing my steps. With the help of a neighbors' bright spotlight, fortunately I found them. Lesson learned on keys!!

I have an uncoded key in the gas door or both vehicles.Ours are to old to have all that keyless code stuff,just a couple uncoded keys work fine. If your not old enough to know what an uncoded key is,its an entrance key for the door that does not have the electronic info burned onto it to start the car. AAA works in a pinch too.We never lock anything anyway so its kinda a non-issue,but stuff can happen.
