Thumbs down remote entry system

Hey all, is there a way to find out if a 1997 Ranger XLT super cab has remote entry system installed without pulling the panel off the door.

I don't know if the 97's are anything like the 98+ but if you have power locks then you have keyless entry. All you need a remote.

A ford mechanic told me to try this:
Turn ignition key from OFF to ON 5-6 times within 10 seconds ending in OFF (do not start vehicle). If your vehicle has the remote entry system, the doors should lock and unlock by themselves.

Didn't work for me. Can someone with remote keyless entry give this a try and let me know if it's a valid test.

That worked on my moms 97 escort.

Ok, I guess no keyless entry here. No big deal, I recently purchased and was wondering if might have RKE.
