Wow awsome information on where to look for the code. I wish I read this last week before I gave the dealer $50.00 to tell it to me.

Great info guys, I paid the dealer over $100 bucks to pull the code when I got my 99SE. Now I got the code myself off that little firewall-facing label using a mirror on my 2000 Sable. I love beating "the man"!
Outstanding! Thanks, Joe

I had gen 2 taurii before and knew where the code was. After getting the 01 and not finding it in the same place, I was a bit pissed. I did a quick search and now I know to go look at my computer module.

Thanks for the info!

I have been out there 3 times looking for it and have not found anything. I cant find the code anywhere. Can anyone provide any other help or any of places the code may be???

I have found it!! Is it odd that it has the same number for 4 out of the 5 digits?

Anywho, for those who may be looking in the future, mine was vertical on a yellow piece of paper. The paper was push behind the computer and so the little portion sticking out with the code on it was angled toward the firewall...making it even harder to locate it.

Thanks for the info. I just bought a 2007 Taurus and the dealer said all of the owner's material was in a sealed package so I believed him. When I opened the package, the warranty booklet, the owner's wallet card and the security code were missing. I called the salesman and left a voice mail which he never returned. I sent an email to the place and got a call from the used car manager.

The used car manager told me that he would get me the security code and there was normally a charge but he would not charge me. What a deal. So I told him to send it to me. He said he needed the car so he could hook it up to the factory computer and reprogram the factory security code. I figured he knew what he was talking about, but apparently not.

I knew the code was on the computer, but I did not know where the computer was. So, in 60 seconds I have the code. I am 80 miles from the dealer. I will not waste my time telling the dealer, since it sounds like he just wanted me to think it was a big deal and maybe he could sell me a high cost extended warranty. Has anyone been able to understand why the extended warranty cost is still high, when Ford now has the 3-36000 warranty and also the 5 year-60000 mile powertrain warranty. A 5 year 75000 mile warranty is around $1,800. Of course, why is the cost of 50-50 coolant more than the cost of 100% coolant. Amazing, but true.

I went ahead and added this information, condensed into the wiki w/pictures. Edited the 1st post as well. If you have a G1 or 2 or a 2002 model and wouldn't mind sharing the location of your keypad code (we'll fuzz it out) with a picture, it'd be much appreciated

[[SIZE=2]font=Comic Sans Ms]Oh..after 4 hours on the net ..from the trunk to the steering wheel..I fopund the 5 digits..THANK YOU...For my 1999 Taurus I found it under the dash to the right of steering column on a grey plastic box. It was on the side facing the passenger side with less than 2 " to place the mirror.


BUT, when I punched the 5 digits on the key pad nothing happened, the numbers do light up but the lock mechanism is quite and will not talk talk to me.

Anyone knows why?[/font]

When it's dark out, hit the 1-2 button. See if it lights up, as well as the rest of the interior. Wait till the lights go out, then try the 3-4 button, repeat this process for the rest of the buttons. If one of the buttons don't light up...time for a new keypad probably.
