Re: Keyless entry help on a '98 Taurus
I own a 99 Sable and had to retrieve the code. To
be exact,the Rap module sits above,actually between the brake
and gas pedals,beside three black relays.Now the color of my Rap
module is white with two gray sockets that plug into them.Now the
code number is printed on the module as Ford states.Now please
keep in mind before doing this job,make sure on your dash board
below the temperature reading with the car off you have a little
red light flashing saying anti theft.if the light is working it means
the module is working.If it is not flashing the module in your car
is not working or you have another problem besides it.Now to
remove it and reinstall it will take you about 1 1/2 hours approx.
because it will be your first time,but very easy actually.
Tools needed : A torx screwdriver T20,stubby is easier but normal
will work, 2: a 11 mm socket wrench,1/4 drive best.
Remove the two torx screws by the three relays that are hidden
by the wireing harness,you will see them.Disconnect the two plugs
(gray) that go into the Rap module and put the three relay socket
aside. You will see the Rap module bracket is held by two nuts,undo
the two nuts and the module will fall down due to gravity.Take the
five digit code off the label,you cannot miss it,biggest writing on
the label,the rest of the writing is part numbers and descriptions.
Replacement is the reverse of removal.Hope this helps rob123m
