Keyless Entry or not?

How can I find out if our recently purchased 1995 Ford E250 van is equipped with a wireless door lock system? According to the service manual, they had them then but we did not get any remote with the van when we bought it. Is the only way to find out, to check for a receiver module or is there some way via VIN or other method to tell if I could get a remote for it?

Thanks

Turn the key from off to on, (not start), 8 times within 10 seconds, ending in the on position. If the locks cycle, you have keyless entry.

Nice. I will check and report the results. Where did you get that "test" from? Is it in the service manual somewhere? Or ar you just smart?

Well, I won't say I'm smart, but I've done it about a hundred times. The procedure is in the owners manual as well.
Owners manual can be found here.

Re: Keyless Entry or not?

I just realized the Post title says Keyless Entry but that's not what I am asking. Oops. I think I explained it in the body of the post. I am just looking to see if I have remote door locks. Not sure if that is used interchangeably with Keyless Entry. I tried the switch test and nothing happenned so I guess I don't have it. Thanks for the info.

Re: Keyless Entry or not?

1.Look for a white or light grey plastic connector with two metal prongs inside that is NOT plugged into anything. This connector is located behind the dash (driver side) to the right of the steering column just above the drivers right foot area. It may be taped to a wire harness and ultimately leads to the keyless entry reciever.

2. This connector verifies a keyless entry system is installed.


To test- for programming.... Put the ignition switch in "run" or "acc" and jumper the two program connector terminals. The system will respond by locking then unlocking all doors.

If it does this then you have keyless entry. To program a remote if you have the right one.
Put the ignition switch in "run" or "acc" and jumper the two program connector terminals. The system will respond by locking then unlocking all doors. Press any button the the first transmitter. all doors will lock then unlock or the horn will chirp to verify transmitter signal exceptance. Do the same with each additional remote, up to four. when complete turn the ignition switch to off, all doors will lock then unlock or the horn will chirp. Remove the jumper wire.

Dealer can also check by VIN# and tell you if your vehicle came with keyless entry
