    I ordered a keyless pad since I couldn't get one already installed. It is a battery operated unit that I'm going to see if I can place on the interior of the gas tank flap. I'm hoping it works as well as the one that came on my Explorer.

    I moved mine to the cover, and my keypad base is white... Did you paint the keypad base black? I did put my cover back on and the fuel door does shut.

    That looks great!! My keypad is black, but I haven't taken it apart yet to see what color it is. I am going to use your idea and put it on the gas tank flap. Hope it works!

    I took my cover off. Underneath it's black except for the white rubber for the light. Is it preprogrammed for my truck or do I have to program it? I bought it from Ford.

    It's preprogramed, you can add another set of number on top of the Ford's. When I tried to program my 2nd person number, it won't let me.. I was thinking maybe the dealer did it for themselves, and I removed it and then I was able to add mine.

    OK, I'm a dork! I have a Lariat with push button start, and ordered the part ending with a "B." I can't seem to get the unit to work! How many times do I have to cycle the on/off, and which do I end with-on or off?

    If you bought it from Ford you will need to go to dealer to have it programmed. Im sure someone here who has had it done will chime in. Good luck

    Yes, correct. The only way to get these keypads mated to your rig is to go to the dealer. It's a simple 5 minute procedure to get it programmed. The part that takes the longest is inputting the 48 digit hex code and figuring out where you want to stick it.
    As for the battery drain issue, hopefully it was a bad batch. My keypad has a mfg date of 08/28/19.
    If your getting them off the Ford Accessories web-sight add the $14 installation. The listed dealer you select has to honor it.

    Wait, just to confirm-

    The factory-installed keypad is just mounted with a sticker I can get off with a heat gun?

    The stock location looks pretty bad I'd love to move it somewhere else.

    Yes, it's stick on.. I carefully pulled mine off, and moved it to the gas cover. Then I cleaned up the sticky that was left behind from removing it.

    I ordered one of these with my Ford Rewards points for $100. However, once it arrived the dealership quoted me $149 to program it, even though the website showed $9 to install. I'm pretty pissed.

    check in the thread, I think it's possible to just order the install on the web and take that paperwork to the dealer. they probably won't be happy, but that's life.
