My apologies for the elementary questions:

I got through all the modifications in FORScan, but I don't hear the locks do anything after turning the ignition off/on 8 times.

Where is the "remote entry module" located? I"m wondering if I don't have it.

If I don't have it, does anyone know the part number and a source for it?

I googled around and searched this site, but not finding anything definitive.

The remote entry module is located at the bottom of the center console (if you have an OEM one) or next to 14 Pin police connector under/behind the climate control panel. If I found a pics of it I’ll post it later. You can also check the DTC code in Forscan, there might be an error pops up if the module is missing.

Yup, did see the DTC related errors. So that is it... bummer. It did not come with one.

Oh well, where do I get one? A part number would be really appreciated.

Thanks for the offer to put up some pcictures! That would certainly make it easier to find it.

Is this the right remote entry module:


Also, can somebody post a picture or a link that shows were it goes?

I have ordered the service manual, but it has been stuck in the "Shipping Department" for a few weeks :(

That looks like the correct module, mine looks identical to that, a quick search with that part number also shows that it may control the TPMS too, but I see eBay listings for that exact part number for keyless entry modules. Mine was just floating loose in the front area of the console. I just tucked mine up in that region by the heater vent tubes. Range isn't great so I've been looking at adding a long range antenna to that module (I beleive it plugs into that gray port ) to see if that helps.
