Q: Need to find the code for my keyless entry pad

asked by on

I bought my car used a few months ago, and I can't find the code for the keyless entry pad. I've looked in the glove box, trunk and owner's manual. How do I find or reset the code without going to the dealership?

The 5 digit code should be printed on a white label in the trunk. Open your trunk and look on both sides of the hinges where the trunk lid opens. On one side of the hinge is a white label with 5 numbers printed on it in black. That is your factory set code.
