Keyless entry code

Just picked up a 2003 Grand Marquis with keyless entry. The owners manual makes reference to a card in the glove bax which contains the number for the keyless entry system. It wasn't in the car.

I went to the dealer and they said it was taped to the ECM but it would take 1 hour labor to get to it. They also said that they could extract the info from the computer but that would run $45.00. After paying $116.00 for a programmed spare key I told them I would make do without the code for now.

How hard is it to get to the ECM to find the 5 digit code? DIY-able? Is there any way to trigger the computer to spit out the info? Is there a Mercury website where they can extrapolate the code from the VIN?

Not cheap...but tired of being nickel and dimed.

Thanks.

Re: Keyless entry code

The computer is not hard to get to and take out. For the best results go get a Haynes manual from Autozone or Advance. They are less than $20 and you'll have it for future references on just about anything,it'll tell you how to do those things that the dealer likes to stick it to you over.

Re: Keyless entry code

The code to my door is on a white sticker attached for the driver side trunk hinge arm. Can't miss it, I have a 96. I don't know if yours would be like that. Good luck

Re: Keyless entry code

For a Tech to look up that code would take about 30 seconds, so if they are going to charge you $45 after you already paid them to program keys then I wouldn't be taking to them too much anymore. I look up keyless entry codes for free all the time.

Thanks for the info about the time necessary. I look for another dealer and take my business there.
