How do I unlock my Lincoln vehicle 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.

Unlocking Methods

Select from the dropdown options below to unlock your vehicle without a key.

Lincoln Way®* App

If you previously downloaded the Lincoln Way App and activated Lincoln Connect®**, you can remotely unlock your vehicle. To unlock your vehicle using the Lincoln Way App:

  1. Tap Home in the Lincoln Way 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 five-digit entry code.

Note: The factory-set five-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 800-521-4140.
