    first you need to see if the truck is remote ready. i believe the proper procedure it to fast cycle the key from off to run 4 or 8 times, and after the 4th or 8th time the doors will lock/unlock. if they do, it will accept a key-less entry pad. if it does not, your only option is to install a remote start like the viper.
    my 02 has everything BUT remote entry.

    You're not alone...after talking to the local Ford dealership and trying to make my truck go into "learn" or "readiness" mode for learning a new key fob I discovered that my F550 won't take one either. I really dont want to put in a Viper or similar unit as I don't like all the wires that get tapped into and having a big module under the dash. Personal preference I guess after having a remote start in my 97 chevy...it was nice until I started to wire my own lights and such in and found the tonage of wires from the unit that I had to navigate around. Just slowly getting used to always needing the key and remembering to press the unlock button so all the doors are unlocked. Ticks me off when I unlock the pass side, put something in there and go to the drivers side to get in and realize that side is locked!! Ok, rant over! lol

    Morrissey.... The procedure is 8x. Ign off to on. On the 8th "ON" cycle, the door locks cycle and are ready to accept programing. IF THEY DO NOT CYCLE RIGHT AWAY...HIT THE LOCK BUTTON ON THE DOOR. Some older fords require lock button to be tapped, then locks will cycle. Ford sells a wireless remote number pad for outside the vehicle. It is possible to add keyless entry without having the bulky units under the dash. If you already have power locks, it is very simple install.

    Here I'll post it anyways. Good luck sir.

    On the F250F350 pick up you need to remove the lower cover
    under the steering wheel and you will find a small grey 2 pin
    DLC connector. It has two wires:- green with a purple trace and
    a black.
    1. Fit a jump wire between the two.

    2. Turn the ignition switch to the run position. After

    approximately 10 seconds, the head lights will flash and

    the horn will chirp twice indicating that the keyless entry

    module has entered learn mode.

    3. Press either button of the first key fob to be trained.

    The horn chirping and the headlights flashing once confirm

    successful training of the remote.

    4. Program all remaining remotes using the same procedure

    5. To exit remote learn mode, turn the ignition switch to the
    off position and remove the jump wire from the two pin
    connector.
    The right hand door must remain open during the entire remote
    learning procedure, as the courtesy light circuit is an input
    required to enter remote learning mode

    but that only works if the truck has a leyless remote module in it.
    not all trucks were built with the module.
    just like not all trucks were built with the auto light module in them.

    I understand that. Sometimes if it does have a keyless module, it won't respond with key on off sequence. That's why I added the second option. If you have factory power door locks at least...it is very easy to add a remote keyless entry without a remote start or alarm crap.
