Should my F-250 have keyless entry?

Hi first post. Just picked up a 2005 F-250 XLT, but it didnt come with any remotes and the key isnt chipped.

Should the xlt have keyless entry as standard? or should the key be chipped?

The truck has evidence and alarm was once installed, im wondering if this is causeing problems.

Thanks for your help.

Well i tried to turn the ignition on and off 8 times to see if it would cycle the locks, as per the programing instructions, but it didnt.


Other than that no problems othe than having to use the key in the door.

In an '05 XLT, I don't think keyless entry was standard. You had to order the advanced security group. Not positive, but I think that is true.

You do not have a chip in your key. That much is certain.

I suggest you request a build sheet from Ford and it will show you if you have the advanced security group.

Welcome to FTE!

Enjoy your new ride.......the best truck on the road!

The SD's did not offer chipped keys until the 08 model.

On my 04 build sheet there is no Advanced Security Group. Only "Security Lock Group". I do have the remote keyless entry and door keypad.

My 06 XLT doesnt have keyless. I installed a viper setup. My build sheet looked alot different then the one you posted. it actually said "keyless entry delete"
