How to Unlock the Door of a Ford F250


Before you can drive your new Ford F-250, common sense dictates that you must first find a way into the truck. Back in the old days, you could simply insert a metal key into the lock cylinder. But as of 2009 models, there are two other ways to unlock the door of a Ford F-250: use a remote "key fob" or enter a factory-set, five-digit code into the keyless entry system. Door lock procedures may vary slightly for earlier F-250s, so consult your year-specific owner's manual or auto guide for exact protocols for your truck.

Key Fob

  • Stand no farther than about 30 feet away from the Ford F-250, holding the key fob in your hands.

  • Press the "Unlock" button (the one with an icon of an open padlock) on your key fob. The driver's door will automatically unlock and the interior lights will illuminate.

  • Press "Unlock" once more within three seconds to unlock all the doors of the truck.

Key Code

  • Find your personal entry code. This five-digit code was set by the factory. Your dealer should have provided this code; you can also find it on your F-250 owner's wallet card.

  • Enter the code into the Securicode keypad on the door of your truck. Press each number one at a time, within five seconds of the next. The driver's door will unlock automatically, and the interior lights of the truck will illuminate.

  • Press the "3-4" button on the keypad within five seconds to unlock all doors of the truck.

Tips & Warnings

  • If your key fob does not work, check the battery.
