How do I unlock my Ford without a key?

If you locked your keys inside your vehicle and a spare key is not available, you may still be able to unlock your vehicle using the FordPass®* App, your keyless entry code, or Roadside Assistance.

Unlocking Your Vehicle

Select the method you are using from the drop-down options below to learn how to unlock your Ford without a key:

Remote Unlock Using the FordPass App

If you previously downloaded the FordPass App and activated FordPass®** Connect (SYNC Connect® for 2018 and previous model-year vehicles), you can remotely unlock your vehicle.

To unlock your vehicle using FordPass:

  1. Tap Home in the FordPass App.
  2. Select a vehicle.
  3. Press and hold the Unlock button until the circle starts spinning.

Keyless Entry Code (If Equipped)

The keyless entry code lets you unlock the vehicle's doors by using your 5-digit entry code. Enter your 5-digit code to unlock the driver's door. 

Note: The factory-set 5-digit keyless entry code is provided on a wallet-sized card with the Owner’s Manual.

Roadside Assistance

If you are unable to unlock your vehicle, contact Roadside Assistance at 1-800-241-3673. Roadside Assistance is included with your vehicle's New Vehicle Limited Warranty and Powertrain Warranty. It is also included with certain ​Ford Protect Extended Service Plans​.

Note: Ford cannot remotely unlock a vehicle.
