Amongst several items attached to my spare remote fob when I received the MKX is a 1 1/4" X 3" plastic tag with a bar code, a 5-digit number followed by an X, and the statement SAVE FOR CUSTOMER RECORDS. The bar code doesn't match my VIN or any other source that I can identify. Any idea what the tag's purpose might be?

 

Also, some past Lincolns have hidden the vehicle's 5-digit keyless entry/keypad code at various locations on the vehicle, e.g. interior fuse cover, etc. Does anybody know if the current MY MKX has a hidden entry code?

The keypad code is a five digit code. It's probably your factory code. Easy enough to try it and find out.

I believe those tags identify the key/fob in case the dealer needs to replace it but I'm not really sure how that works.

From the owners manual:

 

"Note: Your vehicle’s backup keys came with a security tag that provides important vehicle key cut information.

Keep the tag in a safe place for future reference."

The fobs bar code is not related to the vin #

 

Reason: you cannot obtain a new fob if you have the vin#, vehicle description, owners name or whatever. The only way to obtain a new fob is to go to the dealer with the vehicle, show one of the fobs, and plenty of ID.  OR ..the bar code # attached to your spare fob. DO NOT LOSE IT!!!.

NOTMY...I did the same with my keypad entry code, i.e hid it, but can't remember where. I must be older than you 'cause it never occurred to me to photograph it or key in a # of my choice. I noted on another forum that a member paid $65 for the dealer to recover the code. Since I don't anticipate ever using the keypad, I'm reluctant to pay for its recovery.

 

Wishing you a very HAPPY RETIREMENT...it will change your life. I bailed out at 55 after 28 satisfying & rewarding years and subsequently participated in founding a very successful local winery.

 

Enjoy!

Thanks Cosmos,

 

After 42 years of being in/work for the Navy its really time to "abandoned ship" while I'm still half same.  I do enjoy visiting the not so local winery in Niagara On The Lake.

 

A ta santé,

 

JJ
