Default How can I know if I have power locks?

How can I verify whether or not my car has power locks and an alarm system? The guy I bought it from said it did and that he lost the fob. I just want to know if there is some way I can verify either way.

First and Easiest way to find out would be to look if you have the lock or unlock button by the door handle.

i think he's talking about remote keyless entry (RKE). i could be wrong, but without a fob, i don't think there's an easy way to find out.

Whoops, my bad. When you get out of the car, lock the doors from the inside with the lock button and then shut the doors. There is a little red light that blinks between the fuel and coolant temp gauge that indicates the alarm is armed. You could at least determine if you have an alarm this way.

I do not have a button to lock the doors. But is it still possible that I have RKE? Wouldn't there be a receiver somewhere in the car?

I do NOT have the fob. That's the problem. I will order one and get it programmed if I have the option. The guy I bought it from says that it had it and he lost the fob. But, who knows if he's remembering correctly or not. That's why I want to look for some hardware device somewhere in the car to verify it.

Without the fob is there a way to check for or set the alarm?

If you do not have power locks, the RKE would have no purpose. It is possible that someone installed an aftermarket alarm however and that's what the previous owner misplaced

Do you know how to take off the center console? Behind it is the RKE Module. See if you have one.

call a chyrsler dealership and ask for the service department, tell them you want to buy a remote but want to verify that you have the keyless entry. Give them your Vin #. That's how I found out that I have keyless entry, then buy the remote from ebay
