    Hey guys

    Just got my 2015 Tacoma and went with the basic model. I didnt realize until after I got it that it didn't come with keyless entry.

    My questions is, how difficult is it to install an aftermarket keyless entry? The truck has power locks. Is it already prewired? And last, any suggestions for aftermarket kit?

    Thanks

    Also, would adding an alarm be a lot more difficult and expensive?

    Look into a viper alarm system http://www.viper.com/car/build/

    Little pricey but if I had the cash I would have done it already. Lots of people on here love them.

    Kill two birds with one stone. Alarm for thieves and keyless for convenience. No Brainer here.

    What about just a plain keyless entry? How difficult would that be to install?

    Shouldn't be too hard. A alarm store should be able to do at a reasonable price if you're not up to it. Probably under $100. I had my 22 yrs old Integra done with 2 aftermarket motors and relays for $75. It didn't have power door locks to begin with.

    Depending on your experience level with this type of thing, it might make more sense to have a professional install whatever you decide on. My two cents, don't do just keyless entry. It won't cost much more for an alarm with remote start and you can pick them up online for fairly cheap.

    Do me. Favor check your glove box.. A lot of these trucks come with the fobs and stick them in the glove box off the truck and never get taken out so you might have some in there already! :)

    Hahah nah not really if they were in there it would be a little bag with the key fobs...you be suprised how many people come into the dealership cause the salesperson at another lot diddnt know were the keys were or if they even came with them...they are all in there from the port but until the car is hooked up they are useless...

    Yea, mine didnt specify keyless entry on the sticker, but didnt know if it just neede activated. Most cars with power locks have keyless entry built into them. Kinda weird that mine didnt ya know.

    Is your truck a double cab?

    Have you asked the dealer if they have an "accessory package" keyless, if so check the part number and I'll bet it may be plug and play.

    I am very interested as I am wanting to trade soon and might end up getting a base V6 DCSB but they all come with power locks and windows. Just not cruise and a remote.

    yead, i added the cruise onto mine, just did the stalk add-on that i read about on here, was super simple to do. still havent figured out anything about the keyless entry system. i dont really wanna do the aftermarket, but might have to resort to it.

    Good luck man,

    The last time I was asking around at the dealer they said if the truck didn't have the "Convenience Package" you can't add any alarm type stuff. So needless to say I ended up sticking with the truck they order for me. 2015 Access Cab 4-cyl 5-spend Utility Package and Conv. I have cruise and keyless from the factory now and might add a type of a Toyota Accessory alarm down the road.
