Default Does my truck how a factory installed keyless entry?

Im wondering if my truck has a factory installed key-less remote entry...
as im getting out of the truck i press the lock button and close the door. as soon as i close the door all the lights in my truck flash once (except the headlights and dome light)...

.Im pretty sure this is the key-less system basically saying that all doors and completely closed and locked as it only does this when all the doors are completely closed and locked....

if this is the case then i will go and buy a fob for it right now lol.

The easiest way to test is to get in the truck turn it on and off 8 times in 10 seconds after doing so if you have keyless entry the doors should lock and unlock themselves. The lights flashing like that means that the alarm is activated.

IIRC no ranger came with a factory alarm unless it is pre-PATS...

I have successfully programmed this key-less entry remote that belonged to my girlfriends ford Taurus (she has two of them...the one i have being the old and used up one that she stopped using a while back) It works perfectly fine except that i have a trunk button now that is completely useless.

FUNNY THING!!:: I realized after doing this that the car programs its self to the remote... not that the remote programs its self to the car...i learned this when my girlfriend parked her car next to mine and i pressed the lock button for MY truck but instead locked both cars at the same time....I laughed a little..and then pressed the panic button and both cars went off at the same time XD!! this will be great to play pranks and stuff...
