Adding keyless entry

Hello all! I just bought a '99 E350 Clubwagon with a V10 (retired poor old Vanna White at 380k)
It has power door locks but no keyless entry system. I'm curious if Ford used a one size fits all module that I could get from eBay or the junkyard and plug into an existing harness? (I mean the kind with the remote on a key ring, not the number pad on the door type)

That era van does require adding the keyless entry module (starting in '03 you only have to add a key fob.... They all have keyless entry!). I don't know if the module is specific to the E-series or not. I doubt they are unique to the vans only.

What about those of us with manual locks? Is the electric harness in the door plug and play at some point? Could I grab a set of electric junkyard doors and swap/plug them in?

HI!

I have a '97 Van with the type of set-up you describe - Power Door Locks in the Van, a key ring Remote and no # Pad on the door.

IDK about the innards as I have never had the Door Panel off.

Hope this helps.

Have a Safe Holiday Season!
Steve

On passenger vans yes (even the mirror connectors are there). I'm not sure about cargo vans. Pull the kick panel. That's where the connector would be for the power options.

Thanks! I will do and check this out. Honestly I'm not 100% sure what my van started as, but I ASSume passenger since it had/has all the trim for seatbelts throughout.

I put spal power door locks in my 2003, I think I posted about it (?). it was work, but nothing crazy. I've been happy with them. the 03 cargo body has nothing run for locks, Windows, or mirrors if it wasn't optioned from the factory.

It is possible your van has a remote module and the previous owner lost it or kept it. Maybe you just need to get a remote sender and program it.

You can find the programming online - search for programming Ford remote.

You should be able to borrow one and try programming it for your van. I think it should still work for the original car; but at worst you may need to reprogram it when you return it.

Ford also has a stick-on keypad that will work on any ford vehicle with a factory remote fob. I mounted mine in the right side of the rear license recess.

What part number was your touch keypad that you put on your econoline? I think they need to be 2000+ for them to work with touchpad as I have a 99 and I can't reset the programming with on off key but I have to use jumper pins...... So I think if you don't have to use jumper pins you should be fine.... I'm going to try and get an updated RKE and see if everything works better.

The remote keypad is :

7L 2Z 14A626BA

It is around $70 inc. shipping on eBay. You can set your own codes for it.

I've found websites that say it works back to 98, other sites say from 2004 and up. And another dealer told me if your Ford has a remote fob, it will work.

It is a great addition to my van. If I go swimming or hiking I simply lock my keys in the van and unlock with the keypad when I return.

Mike
