Ford Keyless Entry KEYPAD: How To Add & Program a New Keypad


Ford Keyless Entry KEYPAD: How To Add & Program a New Keypad

The Ford Keyless Entry Keypad allows to unlock your vehicle, you guessed it, without using your keys. Turns out we use it a lot when going for a bike ride or skiing, because we like to pack light and getting stabbed by your keys when crashing is no fun. We’re no beach bums, but we heard surfers love it as well! It’s possible to order the Keyless Entry Keypad with a new vehicle, or to add one (or up to 8) later. After using the keypad on our Ford Transit for two years, we’re adding a second one on the passenger-side for more convenience. Here is how to install and program it!

Nice To Meet You.

Hello! We’re Isabelle and Antoine 🙂 In 2017 we sold our house (and everything in it), quit our engineering careers and moved into our self built campervan. We’ve been on the road since then and every day is an opportunity for a new adventure; we’re chasing our dreams and hopefully it inspires others to do the same!

  1. Great instructions on how to install the keypad, well done. I have had mine for over a year now and just over the last month it has stopped working and the lights don’t light up when you hit a button. I think the battery is dead.

    Any idea how to change the battery without ripping off the adhesive? Or do you think I will need to buy a whole new unit?

    Thanks for your help

  2. Thanks for this document … I would have never known about Keyless Entry option.

    I was following the documentation above and couldn’t get the keyless entry to work. Want was missing was the step for setting the communication type that was in the ford service pdf. One I set the communication type everything work. Suggest updating the document for those of us that like reading minimal documentation to get something to work.

  3. The first place we go when coming back from a ride or a ski is the back door. That’s where I’ld put a key pad.

    Also, my real worry when traveling is leaving the keys in the van and being accidentally locked out. That would be really bad, especially on a back road somewhere.
