Where can I find the Code for the keyless entry?
Have found places on the web that want to charge for the code. Has anyone used these services. Do you reccomend anyone.
Are they trustworthy?

As far as I know, your keyless entry code should be on a card located in the owner's manual holder or the manual yourself.

You may be able to find the code on your vehicles computer. Good luck!

This is a late post but At some point some onewill check this thread for the number. Found this on the net;This method worked for me.

It is located under the dash on the driver side. If you are looking for the factory code for the keyless entry system, it is on top of the rap module i.e. the fuse box.

Remove the three hex head screws under the front edge of the panel below the steering column. One of the screws is behind the hood release lever. The panel is also attached with clips at the top edge; just pop these out.

The computer module is the same black box that has the fuses -- it says "pull" on the front where you can take the lid off to change fuses. The factory keypad code sticker on our car is on the BACK of the box, near the left side. To see it, I had to partially remove the box.

It's not necessary to unplug any of the cables from the box, but you need to remove the three nuts that secure the box. They are 10mm nuts, & you'll need a deep socket. One nut is at the bottom, one at the top near the upper right corner, and one on the left near the top. That last one is the least accessible, but it's not too difficult.

Get the nuts off, pull the box forwards until you can reach behind it with a small hand mirror to read the code. It's a 5-digit number & should be obvious. The numbers will be backward (in the mirror) and possibly upside down, so note carefully. I had a hard time figuring out whether one digit was a 6 or a 9, so I just tried it both ways, also forwards and backwards, until one of the combinations worked.

Then just replace the nuts & the dash panel, & use the factory code to reprogram the keyless entry code as explained in the manual. Be sure to write down the factory code somewhere safe.

THe code is normally on a card in the owner's manual, or if not there, normally printed on the module itself. Or, you can go pay a ford dealer 45ish dollars to get the code for you it takes about 5-10 min and the special software on the laptop and the VCM module. Even the oil change guy can do it.
