What Are the Function of Keyless Entry Codes?

How do keyless entry codes work? This technology eliminates the need to carry around a set of keys. Instead, all you have to do is enter a four-digit code on your car door to open it. Additional functions of the Ford keyless entry system include:

  • Locking and unlocking car doors: Enter your Ford door code to lock all of your doors and your trunk. 
  • Memorizing your seat and mirror positions: Input the code and your seats and mirrors will readjust to their previous position. You can even save your desired seat and mirror positions. 
  • Activating and deactivating the car alarm: To activate the car alarm, press the “Lock” or “Unlock” button from the keypad until you hear a beeping sound. When the car is locked, the alarm will be activated; When the car is unlocked, the alarm will deactivate.
