Hi, I have a 2021 Explorer Limited with the door touch pad keyless entry. I never really used it since getting the SUV in Dec, but recently tried getting into it, using the touch pad, and it wouldn’t light up when I tapped on it. I tried multiple times by tapping and swiping, but nothing would engage it. I eventually got in using the Ford App. When the doors unlocked, then only did the touch panel light up. So, I know it works. I tried more times after, and it’s hit or miss. Sometimes it works other times it won’t.

Has anyone else had this problem? Is it an easy dealer fix? I plan on bring it to the dealer soon, for an oil change and hope they can figure out what’s going on. Thanks!

I just got my new Explorer this past weekend. I did notice making the door touch key pad was a little hard to get it to light up. If I run my fingers up and down a couple of times it will light up, but tapping on it does nothing..... I think it needs to be a little more sensitive....

I too have this problem.... I keep forgetting to tell the dealer, but I will. If you find a solution please let us know.....

I have a 2017 Ford Explorer and Michaelis entry pad is blinking non stop. How do I get that to stop? Will that cause my battery my battery to drain and go dead?
