Default How do I know if my ram came with RKE from the factory?

When I bought my truck the previous owner gave me one key and one remote keyless entry fob. However, the fob is aftermarket and doesnt do anything. How do I know if my truck came stock with RKE from the factory? Can I give one of you tech's my VIN? The truck is a 5.9l 4x4 95' 1500 w/power locks/windows.

Reason I ask is because I was looking at used fobs on ebay but I'm not sure if i would even be able to use one.

Thanks

Your Ram did not come with RKE according to the build sheet. Since you have power door locks and an auto trans, it wouldn't be hard to install a remote start with RKE.

alright then, the aftermarket fob he gave me must have been his own thing.

Thanks again
