Received the call today. Apparently the Code for a Faulty KeyPad Input is being sent and Engineers want to inspect/swap out the keypad and diagnose for future builds. It’s voluntary at this point. They will be calling back tomorrow for more details on drop off, EV loaner and how much downtime can I expect.

Code is B121B

That's a relief, at least the nothing super serious, IMHO.

Amazing they tell you something’s wrong before you know it.
My wife calls our Lightning “Our robot in the garage”. 😁

Is this referring to the keypad on the door pillar?

@F150ROD Do you use the door keypad for access or locking ?

I haven't used mine since delivery nor have I changed the code!

Beware that you can lock your keyfob inside using the 7-9 keypad code. Then either find the other keyfob, fordpass unlock press 2 sec, or remember the keypad code! Don't ask me how I know.
I like the keypad for when I forget to have a keyfob with me, even just a few steps away in the driveway. It really does not seem like a secure system with only a 5 digit code made up of only 5 keys. A telephoto video camera could catch your pattern.

No, but I set up a code for PAAK. It still works but the code describes that it could be a faulty unit or loose wiring. Who knows. It could be the PPF I had applied that area but that was months ago.

A question for anyone that might know. That keypad can be added to lower end trucks, so I would assume those are wireless (maybe a wrong assumption), but what about those from the factory - are they also just stick on and wireless or are they wired?

Maybe you drove the Lightning so hard - like off roading and it worked loose ??
