Adding Keyless Entry to 2004?

I'm talking about the door handle, not the clicker (keyfob?)

How would I go about detaching said part from a door at the JY and what other materials would I need?

Finding a handle with the keypad in Spruce Green will be the first hurdle,

The handle is tricky to get out. I did this 4 years ago. I really don't remember much from the install. What I do remember is that freeing up the handle wasn't easy. There was a lot of rotation and wiggling.

I think in hind sight, if you can free the rods from the door striker. It may be easier to get the handle on the pull rod.

Getting it out may take 10-30 minutes or so and it is tricky. I will put mine in during my next vacation. Let the fun begin. There's should be a few write ups in both forums I think. The real tricky part is if your car is like mine and the keypad wiring has to be added. Then you'll need to add pins to both sides of the canister on the door it will be an awesome addition to your car. So as the guy said grab as much as the wiring as possible and get the door canister off the SEL's door and [the SEL's or Sable's SJB isn't needed but if says "DRL High" & you want DRL grab it] too while you have the"SEL" at your disposal. It's alot of wire. I only have enough factory wire to "Jerryrig".

You Will most likely have to add the wires. Luckily it's only 5 wires, and not 8 like gen pre 2001. Pulled 2 extra wires in both connectors incase I needed more later.

PM me if you need more info than the guide depicts.

You'll also need the handle from a late build 2003 or a 2004 for it to match. I can't recall when Ford killed off Spruce Green (may have been '05)

The code will be on the side of the SEL's SJB or if you don't grab it you can buy one of these and try not breaking your neck trying to read your code. But the SEL's SJB is your best option.[the SEL's or Sable's SJB isn't needed but if says "DRL High" & you want DRL grab it]
