How do I tell if I have Remote Keyless Entry

Just bought a used 2005 F250 with a 6.0 PSD.
It has electric door locks but I was only given a standard key.
Q1. Are there trucks without Remote Keyless Entry?
Q2. How do I tell if the keyless receiver is installed in the truck?
Q3. Is there a way to unlock all the locks with the key in the door?

I got this from the F150.net website. Perhaps the rapid on/off of the ignition switch will tell you if you have remote capability or not.

How to reprogram your keyless entry remote controls (97-up)

Click the image to open in full size.

It is necessary to have ALL (maximum of four-original and/or new) of your remote transmitters available prior to beginning this procedure

To program the transmitters yourself:
  1. Insert a key in the ignition and turn from 3(Off) to 4(On) eight times in rapid succession (within 10 seconds) with the eighth turn ending in the 4(On) position.
  2. The doors will lock/unlock to confirm that programming mode has been entered.
  3. Within 20 seconds, program a remote transmitter by pressing any button on a transmitter. The doors will lock/unlock to confirm that the remote transmitter has been programmed. (If more than 20 seconds pass before pressing a remote transmitter button, the programming mode will exit and the procedure will have to be repeated.)
  4. Repeat the previous step to program additional remote transmitters. The doors will lock/unlock to confirm that each remote transmitter has been programmed.
  5. When you have completed programming the remote transmitters, turn th ignition to 3(Off) or wait 20 seconds. Again the doors will lock/unlock to confirm programming has been completed.
Just a note, my '99 F150 had electric locks but after the on/off sequence, they didn't lock/unlock (because I didn't have the module). Just to make sure, I checked my wife's Escort (which did have remote lock/unlock); the procedure above worked.
If the doors don't lock/unlock, you don't have the remote module.

Hope this helps,
Curt

Do the check, but you probably have the remotes and just need to pick up a remote and program it. That is what I did when I got my '01 a bunch of years ago.

I had actually just checked into this earlier today when ordering parts from Ford. My question is can a keyless entry module be added? Are the trucks pre-wired for it?

It appears your trim level is an XL. If so, it's unlikely that it has RKE.

If your trim level is Lariat, it likely does have it.

If an XLT, it's a toss-up.

It is with heavy heart that I have to, at present time, agree with the answer of "NO"...

I'm still looking into it though... if the factory can install it, anyone can.

Assuming you don't have the module after doing the check in my first reply, I'd recommend going to a stereo store that offers RKE to get a price quote. That will a) tell you if the wiring is existing and b) give you a hunch on how much Ford will charge you (stereo shop times at least 2 would be my guess).

And, no, you can't unlock all the locks with the key in the door; you could with a key pad or remote.

I tried to do the above tests last night and couldn't get the locks to operate. I guess I don't have the module, just the electric locks.
I did find this at Sam's. Bulldog Security KE1702 Remote Keyless Entry - Sam's Club Has anyone used one of these?

The kit from Sam's appears to be 2 high-powered transmitter; no module is mentioned.

If you use the part #KE1702 to search on the Bulldog website you get this page
Bulldog Security. Model KE1702 Vehicle Keyless Entry System
It shows a module that has to be wired in.
