    I just bought a 2015 Tundra this last week. The prior owner bought it with the "Work Truck" package.
    'WORK TRUCK PACKAGE – Adds durable vinyl seating and flooring, and removes wireless door lock feature. On Regular Cab models power windows and the speed- and shift-sensing power door lock features are also removed.' So, my truck didn't come with key fobs and the sales manager was not really willing to help on that issue either. I'm trying to figure out if the truck is already set up to be able to use key fobs or does the truck have to be programmed now to accept key fobs for keyless entry? I have fobs from my prior Tacoma and have set them in the past but I keep getting conflicting information as to if it's possible or not and I know if I go to a Toyota dealership, they WILL charge me an arm and a leg if they can in order to do it.. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    The receiver should be located in the passenger side rear pilar. 1st thing to do would be to check there and see if you have the receiver. If not, I'm sure you can order one from @Roman. Once you have the receiver, I think you need to have the feature turned on via TechStream.

    Really, though, your best bet is to just buy a cheap Clifford alarm with its own fobs, and install that.

    Thank you bobeast, I will check it out. I did see that you could by the software from TechStrram and the cable that plugs into the computer and truck on the internet, so that could be an option also. There is a big possibility that I may just install and aftermarket alarm to make sure I am all set. I appreciate your assistance.

    Toyota parts are usually overpriced unless you talk to @Roman

    If it's too much...aftermarket is probably the best way to go

    I'd recommend going with a Viper system. That'll give you wireless entry and remote start.

    It would be almost impossible to add in factory setup and get it working. Aftermarket is gonna be your best option
