Default Factory keyless entry question

I bought a used 02 QC SLT about a week ago. It has power locks, s i assumed it would have keyless entry, but was just missing the fob. So, I ordered a fob on ebay. I took the fob to be programmed at the delaership today, and they hooked the truck up to a computer (OBD2) to program the remote. Long story short they couldn't get it to program. Turns out that they say my truck never had keyless entry. However they used the computer to get all the way to where they have to hold down the buttons on the fob to program it. I would think that if the truck didn't have keyless entry to begin with then they couldn't have gotten so far in the process. Does anyone on here know anything about the factory keyless entry system?

I have a similar truck. 2002 QC 1500, 360 V8, sport package is mine. One thing I do know about the keyless in our trucks, is that at 15mph, the doors will automatically lock. I have read that this only happens on trucks that came with factory keyless. I did some research, I didn't get fobs when I bought my truck. And that is pretty much the only way I found to tell if you have factory keyless. I am sure a few others will pop on with more info.

My doors do lock after 15mph, which is annoying b/c the 2 rear doors do not unlock when I put the truck in park. Only the front 2 doors auto unlock.

I guess I thought keyless entry would be something that was standard on a truck with power locks in 2002. Even my old 96 Cherokee had keyless entry.

My 99 Sable had power locks and microchiped key and no keyless entry. The keyless entry kits are easy to install if you already have power locks, I would just go afterwarket.

I "think" I just have the wrong fob. I plan on ordering a different one and trying it out.

The dealer can run your VIN number and check if it came with remotes originally. Power locks do not necessarily mean remote entry was available.
There would be a different (can't remember the actual name, BCM PCM something like that ,so I will just call it) computer.
The rear door lock thing is kind of a child protection safety device. The doors should open however when the ignition is shut off.
Anyway I wouldn't waste money on a diffent fob unless I was sure it would work.

I actually have a build sheet now. Keyless entry is not listed on it, but it does have some option packages, like the convenience group. Does this package include keyless entry? Or do any other option package include keylles entry?

I'm in the same situation, when I bought my 2002 QC I didn't get a key fob, but the guy told me it had keyless entry (and the doors do lock at 15 mph, just like my dad's '99 durango w/keyless entry). I haven't had the chance to go to dealer to get this looked at. Plus I fear going to the dealer because i'm afraid they'll steal my wallet and run (figuratively speaking of course), and I kinda don't want that to happen. How much did it cost you to get a key fob and have the dealership to program it? I'm curious.

Also, my rear doors don't unlock when I attempt to lock or unlock the doors automatically. I'm thinking its just sticking in the doors, but does your's do that also?

I bought the fob on ebay(used) for $20. The dealer didn't charge me anything yesterday. I'm not sure what or if they would have charged if they hadf programmed it.

To answer your second question, all 4 doors lock automatically at 15mph. Only the front 2 unlock automatically. To unlock the rears, I have to use the switch on the door.
