Default How do I know if my mustang has keyless entry?

I just bought a 98 GT drop top yesterday and the dealer didn't have any keyless entry remotes for it. Is this standard equipment? It apparently used to have an alarm because theres a 1/4" hole in the dashboard next to the rear defroster.

He told me I can buy the programmable remotes off ebay but I don't want to do this until I know for sure the car is equipped with keyless entry.

Any help would be great!

I cannot remember what the "magic" number is, but if you sit in your car and just turn the key to the on and off position, approximately 10 to 12 times, your door locks will automatically cycle if the vehicle has keyless entry.

You DO NOT have to start the car when turning the key each time, merely turn the key to the "ON" position, and then to the "OFF" position, and then back to "ON" again.....10-12 times.

If the locks cycle after this process, it is safe to buy remotes for your Mustang, off of Ebay, because you have keyless entry.

You can also and sit in the car and honk the horn 8 times and then open and close your door twice to find out if it is keyless. Your convertible will go down if it is keyless.

Pretty sure you have it right. You can also program your Keyless FOB(or multiple FOB's for that matter) using the above method. Pressing the Lock or Unlock button after the Locks cycle will allow you to sync a key FOB. You can reprogram FOBs as well...Friends/Family who have old Ford Keyless Entry FOBs can be added to your car.

I actually did this yesterday. you guys are right.

It's actually just on and off 8 times within 10 seconds. On the 8th time, leave the key in the ACC position. the doors will automatically lock and then unlock if you have keyless entry.

To program a remote, do this sequence and simply hit the lock or unlock button after the doors lock and unlock. Simple

Hmmmm... Either I'm the biggest sucker in the world or my car isn't equipped with keyless entry. Tried the on/off method various times with no response from the locks.

Guess I don't need to worry about getting a remote. I'll just have to get an alarm or remote start and have them wire up the locks.
