I have a 2004 Ford Explorer XLs and I just found my security code. The Bosch computer module was behind the lower plastic panel on the passenger side rear panel right below the seat belt height adjuster. Not the panel with the seatbelt adjuster but the one below it. No tools were needed and it took me all of 5 minutes. Just pop off the front of the panel closest to the door and pull it back. Use a light and you can see the large 5 digit code on top of the module. Thanks very much to the people that contribute to this forum....Cheers

How do you disable the anti-theft alarm on a 1997 Ford Explorer?

My anti-theft system was going off and the truck would not start...I was frustrated, but to turn it off you simply have to use your key and unlock your drivers side door. I do not have the remote or the keyless entry code since I purchased the truck used. If it has the keyless entry on the driver's side door, punch in the correct number to unlock the door and the system should be disarmed. Open the tailgate door and in the left panel open the jack panel and inside there is a module with 2 plugs. This is the Keyless module, disconnect the right one and you have it..

Where is the computer module with the keyless entry code found on a 2003 ford explorer sport trac found?

Ford does not willingly divulge such information even to mechanics in their own dealerships, in any case the module is "flashed" from a Ford specific scanner {NGS new generation star tester} with the correct up to date software card, the security module can be an integral part of the PCM {Power train control module} the GEM module {generic electronic control module, there are also body control modules, and in some cases the vehicle security is controlled by the instrument cluster module, all are accessed by the Ford specific scanner and even the best of aftermarket scanners cannot access the security centre or reflash it, to the best of my knowledge. When taking Ford training on this stuff, the course is called Pats training {passive anti theft system} If you would like to discuss this further I can be contacted directly at

because the computer isn't responsible for the actual triggering of the coil packs, it does affect when they fire but not the direct firing itself.. this is done by the ignition module which is controlled by the computer. so odds are that the ignition module itself is not working.

Does it matter which slots I plug my new module in?

In general, you will get the best performance if you put the largest module (in megabyte size) in the lowest-numbered slot. For example, if your computer comes with 32MB of removable memory and you want to add 128MB, it would be best to put the 128MB module into slot 0 and the 32MB module into slot 1.

How do you replace the lamp out module on 1997 Eddie Bauer ford explorer?

The lamp out module is located under the center console/trip computer area. The trip computer cover has to be removed. The module is about 2 X 3 inches in size. The module has a 16 pin connector plug assembly so it is not too hard to replace once you get the console apart. I just paid $200.00 to have this replaced. The part was close to $80.00. When I got home I took the old module apart and found it only had a bad solder connection on the ground lug of the connector socket. My guess is that this connection heated up from the current going through it, and after eleven years it finally failed. The technician told me he had replaced several of these modules. He told me they usually go bad around 100k miles. I have 175k miles on my explorer. My symptom was the that my left headlight would not work on low beam. If anyone else has this problem, (be sure to check the headlamp and fuses first) spend an hour or two taking the module out yourself, then pop it apart and look at the solder connections on the connector socket. At least you'll save $120.00 in labor if you replace the module yourself. Good Luck!
