Default Re: Do I have keyless entry?

Most rental car companies order from the factory a special package that has ye power accessories, but no remote capability so no one can rent a a car, program a fob to it and then wait for someone else to rent it and steal it. This is also why it takes to original keys to program a new key to the ignition. When you rent, you only get one key.

Key on / key off 8 times really quick and stop at the on position. The locks will cycle, telling you it's ready to program new fobs. Have all the fobs ready at on time. Even though you have a fob that's been working and want to add a second one, you will have to push a button on all to reprogram them.
Side note, do not use a single remote for multiple cars. It is possible. I hade mine programmer to my wifes Taurus, my daughters Focus, and my f350. Worked decently until one day I accidentally hit the panic and two cars went off. Pushed it again to silence the two but now the third one came on. It was an ordeal to shut them all up! I unprogranmed my fob from all but dually.
