Make the dealer get this code for you! Call Ford customer service Report the dealer and please POST this dealers NAME..

Is there a sticker anywhere on the car?

It may be on the BCM (Body Control Module) located under the dash to the right of the brake pedal. You'll see a box under there with a sticker that has a bunch of letters and numbers on it. Your code should be the last 4 numbers on the sticker. That's where it is on my '08 Grand Marquis. HTH. -Jim

You should have gotten a card with the code on it from the dealership when you bought the car and you should not have to pay for it. I suggest you do what Auto-centric posted.

A 2016?!! All it can be is new-used and still under warranty. Take the car back to the dealership, tell them to get the code without a charge, or give you your money back. You'll have a code in about 5 minutes.

yes OJ a 2016, bought used from a non-ford dealer, was a fleet vehicle and they did not have the card with it :(

Look inside the fuse panel inside the vehicle. On my truck there is a white sticker in there. If there is a letter at the end of the number, disregard it. If you still not locate it, call customer service at Ford and ask for the sticker location.

Mine ended up being near the brake pad also, but the dealer can contact Ford and give them the VIN and get the key less code. If there is a charge, let them handle it. Agree with Auto Centric.
