I bought the OEM kit for adding the keyless entry. It doesn't have any screws, and is held on by tape. Just wondering if the 2-way tape it uses has held up for other people? or would it be better just to put this in my toolbox or somthing just to make sure it doesn't fall off the truck?
OK, a couple questions for you. First, do you have the key with the buttons on it to lock and unlock the doors and the panic button? Second, I think you have to turn the key on and off eight times in under ten seconds and end in the "RUN" position. At that point the doors should lock and unlock to signal programming mode. I think you have to have the doors locked to start this procedure. Also, I think you need to have all the keys present in order to program.
I just did this recently on my truck and had no problems. OH, the double sided butyl taper will hold. I had one of these on my 2001 and it worked great.
If your truck was not equipped with it from the factory it may have to be enabled. This is programming that has to be done to the BCM that will allow it to recognize the additional equipment. That has to be done at a shop that has the equipment to program the modules.
The truck sees these modules as additional key fobs so it doesn't need to be enabled via programming. Retry the programming procedure, it should work. BTW the manual has a nice set of steps to follow, be sure to do it EXACTLY as described and it should work.
