hi, I just bought a 2001 Windstar SE and I can't find the code for the keypad. Supposedly it's in a secret location in the car but I could not find it where the manual said (card in the glove compartment & sticker on the computer module). It wasn't in either place, would appreciate some help. I will use ebay as a last resort. Thanks.

remove the glove box and inside you will find the module. remove the two screws holding it in and pull it out enough to see the 5 digit code

Not on a 2001. The RKE module is behind the lower part of the instrument panel, the part below the radio. I just looked at mine, and someone had pulled the tag with the code.

Same thing here with my 2001. I removed the lower section below the radio and some one had scrapped off the key code. Dealer wants $45 to hook up a computer and to find the code...I wonder who scrapped it off??? maybe the people charging $45??

While at the junk yard last week, I pulled the lower cover off, below the radio (02/03). I found the card with the code and two new remotes taped to the module. I hope this helps someone with the 02 or 03.

My experience, the slime balz at Ford removed the Keypad Code from the Keyless Entry module.

Not on an 01 model. In the 2001 the module is located behind the lower instrument panel below the radio and behind the hollowed out cubby hole. Mine didn't have the five digit code on a sticker either.
