How to tell if truck has keyless entry??

How would I go about determining if my truck has factory keyless entry installed. When I bought it used there was no key fob but I'd like to know how to tell for sure. Thanks for your help.

All used to Tow 18' Doolittle Extreme flatbed trailer with '98 Jeep TJ with too much to list.

The easiest way would be to call your local Ford Dealer, give them your VIN number and have them get a copy of the original window sticker.

Yes, the dealership will charge you for the key and the programing, The dealership here in Logan, Utah quoted me $40.00 per. I got mine thru ebay and programmed it myself.

They shouldn't charge you to tell you whether or not you have it. They will charge you dearly for a key fob though [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

Re: How to tell if truck has keyless entry??

if you make a trip to the dealer and they hook their computer up to it to tell you, you will be hit with a hour of labor or so! Do you have another Ford vehicle that has a key fob? try programming it to your truck and see if it takes? if so, you just need a key fob or two!

Cycle the ignition key on and off 8 times. If the power door locks cycle you have the key less entry system.

Does it seem like it should cost? Do you think Ford can make a cheap buck on it? Do YOU have a funny feeling in your gut that they will charge for it?


If you answered YES to 2 or more of the above questions, the odds arent in your favor....

I thought I'd ask in case there was a flat charge. Ford seems as though it is OK to charge nearly twice as much for a CPS as NAPA, International, etc. so I thought I'd ask before I wasted time going and finding out it would cost.

Checking the ignition was simple enough and I don't have it [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] Maybe when the budget allows I'll get an aftermarket one...any suggestions?

Re: How to tell if truck has keyless entry??

If the truck in question is the one in your signature, then yes it has keyless entry.

If I am not mistaken, all XLT and Lariat Super Duty's from 1999-present had the keyless entry. I have had a Super Duty from each year since 1999 and all of mine have had keyless entry.

Check with dealer or E-bay and buy the keyfobs and program them yourself.

Good luck!

Well, when I ordered my 2004, I didnt know that keyless entry was an option, it came in without it? I installed a crimestopper remote start/keyless entry on my truck, I never gave a remote start much thought, but now that I have it, I love it, its nice to start the truck from inside the bldg at work in the winter time [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
