Keyless Entry

The search function doesn't seem to be working for me so forgive me if this is common knowledge.

I have a 2009 ford focus SE, it has power locks, but i never got a remote keyless entry device from the seller. would i be able to buy one off ebay and program it to my car?

thanks

Your First step is to take your VIN into your dealer, that way they can determine if in fact your car does indeed have key less entry.

Then yeah, you can get a remote and have it programed.

now if my car does have power locks, but not keyless entry, how much would it cost/ how hard would it be to install keyless entry?

I dunno but some cars have the power locks without the keyless entry.

My SE came with the keyless entry though and I have both a switchblade key and a flip key :)

Here's the videos of both

Call another dealer, tell them that the previous dealer was unable to answer their question. This makes people work harder so they can upstage the other- good old human nature.

Depending on how much a Key Fob costs, you might be able to just try it. Somewhere in one of our How-Tos is the procedure for programming an extra fob. It's fairly simple, do a few things with the ignition, then door lock, then hold down both buttons on the fob IIRC. All these things are controlled via the GEM, so the only difference between cars with and without remote locking might be the key fob itself.
