Default Keyless entry on ranger with no power door locks?

How can this be done? Maybe a remote start/alarm system that has its own motor to operate all the controls?

You have to convert to power locks to use keyless entry.

Most places that install keyless prefer you to have the basics then they don't have to tie into existing locks.

It'd be easy to do and prob cost 150-200 depending on your location.

i think i have power locks but no keyless entry or button... when i press one lock down, the other lock also goes down. same as if i lock the door with my key and the other one locks too.

that's power locks right? it shouldn't be too hard to get keyless entry setup for this?

i don't have either of those things. apparently the truck didn't have power windows by stock and the guy added an aftermarket kit. the only way i can unlock/lock both doors is either with the key or by pressing down on one of the locks (then the other goes up or down with the other)

this is what my door looks like



here's a closeup

Yup was all manual and they added a aftermarket kit.

I don't know how you are, but I would swap door panels for the factory ones with switches so it looks better

I would go to a place that installs them. They may have to match one up with what ever the brand is on there

You can install power door latches and poppers.
When you hit a button the door will pop open.
Good/Bad your call ?

Hot Rodders have used them for years.
