I have a 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 with power door locks but no RKE module. Can I add a Factory RKE module w/remote(s) from a junker? Where is the RKE harness? Is there a sticky or link with more info on this? I've been through all the "go to the dealer", "buy an aftermarket...", and "get a good wiring diagram", "get a build sheet(which I have)" type links and discussions...but really this can't be brain surgery...these vehicles must have been shipped with a harness connector and simple procedure so the dealer could make a few bucks adding this feature!

I am also quite intrested for this option plus the heated mirrors, fog lights, and roof mounted console(compass, outside temp ect) for my '01 1500

Yes... that's a good point White Lightning! 1996 was the highest selling year for Rams to that point...and maybe even until today. There were 400,000 sold! There has got to be tons of info and cheap parts out there...somewhere...for all these dealer added accessories. My Build sheet is listed below, yet I can't seem to find a list of what all the sales codes are...or what precisely each included:
1996 Dodge Ram 1500 was equipped from the factory with the following:

My 05 came equipped with power locks but no module. I purchased one off ebay with 2 key fobs and installed it myself. The module simply plugs into the back of the instrument panel and then needs to be programmed. I found a local locksmith with a scanner tool that programmed it for $10. All in all I have $45 into mine.

I actually have a spare module out of a 2003 truck but no idea if it would work for a 96 or not.

2002 was a mid year change over, from what i have read, it may or may not make a difference when trying to find wire harnesses & modules
