How to Reset Your Vehicle Keyless System
Resetting your car’s keyless entry code can help prevent someone who has the code from accessing your vehicle. Depending on the type of vehicle you drive, the steps required to do the job may be different. In this example, however, we’ll see how to change the five-digit security code on Ford vehicles that feature the SecuriCode™ keyless entry system.
What to Keep in Mind When Resetting A Keyless Entry System
