Default Ford Keyless entry

I was down at the ford dealer today ordering a part for my new truck, and saw an ad for a keypad for keyless entry for my truck. The only problem is that they wanted $165 for it. This is exactly like the one that comes from the factory, except that it is wireless and uses the same frequency that the one on my keychain uses. It just sticks on the door with an adhesive strip.

I was wondering if anyone new where I could get one like it aftermarket? Seems like a cool deal.

I had one on my truck. I really liked it until the batteries went low and I found out they could not be replaced, so I just took it off. I miss it too, I hate carrying keys in my pocket.

Just for the record...They are not the same frequency as your key fob and they have to be programmed into the security module. It is just viewed as another transmitter by the module. They are sweet though...

My truck did not come with the Keyless Entry, but check this out...

Here's what I did..

All Ford trucks are wired the same. So, I ordered the door handle and key pad and installed it myself - total price was about $115 or so (65 for the slotted handle and 50 for the keypad that screws into it). Install took less than an hour and works beautifully..

You will need to know the factory set code in order to change it (using the owners manual)..

For more info, you can go to F150online.com or Ford Truck World and search the forums.. TONS of info..

Here is a good "How To" section on FTW.. http://fordtruckworld.tenmagazines.com/howto.ten

Good tip Chris, I also added the remote start kit for my F150 Super Crew. It works great.

Yep, Chris, that works good on an F150, but the same kit is not available for the Super Duty.

The wired version is MUCH better. As soon as you touch the pad at night, the lights come on.

A lot of our work trucks are Fords. All of them seem to have a little problem with the regular key locks on the doors. They tend to seize up. An easy problem to overcome with a little graphite in the lock or WD-40. Keyless entry sounds like a good option or retro-fit.

keyless entry is priceless. Fumbling in the rain trying to unlock a door sucks in a major way. Another thing I love is that you can in many cases use it to check your trailer lights solo, hit the panic button, and the flashers come on, including the ones on the trailer, you can stand back and see that they are working.

Steve et al,

Unless I am missing something that you were referring to, this is NOT a kit (at least not what I did). I physically went to the FORD dealer parts desk and had them pull the part numbers for those pieces.

So what I installed is actual Ford parts that plugged right into the existing harness and used my existing door lock mechanism that was transferred from the old handle to the new one with the key pad slot.

Here's another tip for ya, Ford trucks are prewired for turn signal side mirrors. So if you don't have them already and you want them, just install a new mirror assemby with the signal and plug it in!

There's tons of tips on those sites.. Another one I did is the Fog Light modification that allow the factory fogs to be on without the headlights.. Nice to be able to not blind the house when I back out, but still need light..

I dread the day when my Explorer dies and I have to get another truck. I keep saying I'm going w/ Toyota or Nissan, but dam, that key pad is the best thing ever. Run out to the truck in the rain only to realize that you locked it, w/ the keypad, just punch in the code and whammo, car's open. Also very handy at the gym. Don't have to hang my life on those little hooks where any ole' joe can just grab my keys. I just don't understand why all the car companies don't have this or something like this.

Spot, the wired keypad was standard on the Excursion. Don't know if it will work with the electronics on the F250, though. A knowledgeable Ford parts counter guy might be able to set you up. You would have to cut an oval hole in the drivers' door above the handle to mount it.
