I just had to deal with this and got a new key fob last week. Got it all programmed and it works great. The module is directly behind the little inset in the dash to the lower right of the steering column. You know, it looks like a place you might put keys or change right next to where your right knee would be. If you remove the lower trim panel there, it says that it's the keyless entry module or something to that effect (I don't believe that you can read it while the lower trim is in place). That is where it is in my truck and I have a 95. The plug that your looking for that has the wires you need to jump for programming is taped to the harness underneath the module and I believe that it is a gray plug.
The sequence for programming the remote is:
1. Turn the key to the on position.
2. Use a jumper to short the two wires in the connector under the dash (the grey two wire connector) and the locks will cycle from locked to unlocked, to let you know that it's in program mode.
3. Press any key on the key fob that you want to program. The locks will cycle from locked to unlocked again to confirm that the remote has been programmed.
4. Repeat step 3 for any additional remote that you want to program with it (I believe that the system can support up to 4 key fob's).
5. Remove the jumper wire and turn the ignition off. The locks will cycle to locked and then to unlocked to confirm that your exiting programming mode.
Note: If you add or remove key fob's from the truck, you have to program all of them again each time you program the module.
I'm not sure about getting one from the junk yard but i've heard it works and is plug and play as long as you have the correct harness in the truck. I also have the blinking theft light on the dash and believe that this is part of the system. I'll try to take some pictures today if anyone needs them in a little bit. I did quite a bit of research on this a while back and hope that this helps everyone out.
Ill snap a good picture, but I did not need to remove any dash pieces to get to it. It should the a grey plug taped to the wires with two round probes in the plug, those are the ones your jumper together with the key on.
So I know this is an old post, but I found it today and tried t, worked great, its nice to have power locks.
Well i'm glad that it worked out for you. It makes it great when I go places because I leave my key fob in the cup holder when i'm at home but when i'm out and about, I hide the keys on the floor board and stick the key fob in my pocket. It's a lot easier carrying that around compared to my set of keys. I also have the backup plan though. If my key fob ever dies, I always keep a spare key to the doors and ignition in my wallet. Don't ask me how I found out the hard way on that either.
This is the module I found behind my little cubby hole to the right of the steering column. I'm assuming it's not RKE... just thought I'd give it a shot though... thoughts?
You should be able to see the grey connector with the two round pins from the bottom like f250towrig said. If you go back a little bit in the thread, I posted a picture of the module and the connector.
Edit: I see that you have a 92' and I don't think that they came with RKE in that year.

Reason: Forgot something
After reading this, I am going to try it. I just bought 1 off E-bay for close to $20.00, with shipping to Canada. My theft light was flashing, when I opened the door. So I thought I would give it a try, would be nice to have. If any body is looking for one I typed in ford 1995 remote keyles on E-bay
It just so happens that i have the lower piece off on my truck and could get a pic for you guys. this is directly behind the "pocket" in the lower piece.
i ordered 2 remotes off ebay yesterday so ill see how it goes.
ok...with that picture, i am unsure now...like i said mine is a box that is about robbins egg blue in color. when i took a second look at it i noticed that it has 2 connectors that i can see, and they are comming out the side of the box
For me it was my Air Bag Module, it looks like this. I am absolutely positive on this information, I had to unplug it because my air bags were malfunctioning/broken (not deployed). You can find more info on the box and what it does.
