Just a tip on the exterior locks; spray some PB Blaster in them. Most of the time they lock up because the vehicle has keyless and the locks aren't used. I still can't get my hatch lock to function. Don't think the fobs are too expensive, get it and give it a try! :)

I don't believe an XLS has keyless entry. If there is no touch pad on the door, then it probably doesn't. My son got a used 2000 Mustang, the door lock was never used previously (apparently). We ended up having a body shop pull the lock cylinder out of the door and trunk and I took them to a locksmith to get them to work. (The whole story is much longer and doesn't bear repeating here.)

Try this... Turn the ignition key to the on possition then off 8 times. If the doors lock and then unlock you have the keyless entry module.

To program a fob do as above and after the doors lock and unlock press a button on your fob. If you have more than one press a button on each one. As you press a button the doors will lock and unlock indicating that the fob was programed. I think you can have up to 4 fobs.
