Does a dealer have to program the keyless entry keypad when it is first installed, or can I do it myself? If it makes any difference I bought my car used and do not have an original owners's manual. So I do not know if my car has a five-digit code.
If the keypad is hardwired to the car then there is a sticker usually on the BCM (body control module) that will have a 5 digit numerical code that is the original code for the keypad. Now if the keypad is the stick on type, then you are out of luck because it is not hardwired to the car so there is no way to find out the original code.Same here. Bought my Focus used and the dealer doesn't know the code for the door keypad. Any way to get it from the VIN or some other method?
