Keypad Numbers Idea?

Postby ricardocordoba » Sun Aug 21, 2016 6:48 pm

Just a quick question, on the keypad to the door I'm just wondering if a decal from a later model vehicle such as a 99-01 F-150 would work? I see that these decals are reproduced and wondering if they would fit the keypad okay? I realize they are black in color but, I figure it would be better than what the current state is now. Thank you in advance.

Not sure if the decals will work but the part number for the pads is f0ly-14a626a or e5lb-14a626-aa. There are a few nos for sale on ebay. Hope this helps.

Thank you beek0, I did see some keypads on their however my concern is that the numbers again will wear down again quickly. The reason why I asked about the decal is because to prolong the numbers on the keypad. The oils and other things on our fingertips only aid in breaking down the numbers much like they do the same to leather wrapped steering wheels/shifters for example.

The keypads will last for ages if cared for. I've had 5-6 cars with them, and I haven't degraded the condition of any of them. I think what messes then up are people with long fingernails or who are jabbing at the pads with objects. My fingers don't ever harm the keypad, though I rarely do use them. I use the last two to lock the cars more than anything else, and those buttons look exactly like they did when I bought the cars.

If you can get the NOS pads feasibly, buy that. Be careful when pushing the buttons, and they should look like new decades from now.

This is a late model keypad.
The 1984 keypads came with a protective vinyl layer over the keys. If you can score one or two, you'll never be concerned about damaging the numbers again.

Thank you I will have to look and see what I can dig up. I've already spent some of my money elsewhere lol. I'll probably order one just to have as backup or make the one of the car a backup.

I just checked and it was 1984 - 1985 that had the added protective layer over the printed buttons.

Thank you for checking. That's what I thought I had remembered but, thank you for confirming that for me.
