Anyway, thought it would be easy to connect the new remote system in at the module, and a good location with plenty of room. Problem is, no simple functions from the module. Meaning neither Positive or negative will lock or unlock the system. It has got to be using several leads to control relays somewhere.
BTW. In the process, No surprise here, managed to blow the fuse to the keyless system. Found the 10 amp standard small plug in fuse blown behind the door bell panel. Can't see it without removing it.
The only other two places to connect a new system module would be the dash sw, which would be hard to get to, or the passenger seat sw, which would probably have to be mounted on the wall under the switch controls. I really don't know if either of these two switches control the bay doors, but I would guess not since the bay door switch is next to the door sw on the passenger side. And if remote is mounted here, could easily attach to the Bay doors.
With the keyless system, the second code is erased if the A/T sw is turned off or power lost. And a lot of keyless after market system require programming after power off. I have one on the bed of my service truck that locks/ulock the doors with remote, that does not. It will work if power is there, and power interruption does not affect it. I cannot find a name on it. So the two main things I need is this.
1. I would like to find a simple keyless entry that will not have to be reprogrammed if power is lost.
2. Where is the best mounting and connecting points to the existing system.
I would appreciate any advice.
hi mallie,
on my 94 i have door lock sw. by pass seat as well as-rocker sw. on dash - easy to get from dash to back side of fiberglass panel on front of bus where 12volt is available and transmitter may work there - worth think'n about....mike

Mallie,

I just remembered the 2nd part of your question. All modern keyless entry systems/alarm systems by Viper do not lose their memory if power is lost. So, you won't have to re program them under any normal circumstances, even if you disconnect the batteries.

Default Master code

Even the latest code may not help you. On other keyless entry units, you need the original master code. These are usually written or tagged on the back of the unit itself. May have to remove a panel to get to it. A bore scope or penlight with mirror on a stick is what we try to use to see the back of these units. I have same issue with my new to me 93 just have not got to that task yet!!! Bigger fish to catch!!!

Bob,

The master code should be on the actual Ford keyless entry module, which is sort of behind your TV above the driver and passenger seats.

Finally got around to installing my keyless remote fob system. The keyless entry pad works great and there are times when you don't want carry a remote, but it is so much easier to push a button on the remote rather than have to enter the code every time. The original keyless module is in the OH compartment where the TV was mounted. Thought I could make all the connections from there,noting seem to work, testing with a light, tho the system does work. Not sure how the signal is going from the module, probably very low voltage and diodes, I don't know. So I had to find the relays and attach there. I put up a web page article on the process that I hope will make it easier for anyone else wishing to add this option.
