Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

 

If the vehicle was indeed built with keyless entry from the factory, then a DRBIII scan tool can be used to program a new key fob to it. The fob didn't come with instructions because there is no way to program a fob on this vehicle without a scan tool.

HOW DO I KNOW IF IT HAS KEYLESS ENTRY? IT SHOWS IT IN THE OWNERS MANUEL (WHICH I KNOW ARE KINDA GERNIC)?

 

Owner's manuals are generic and go over all features that are possible on a vehicle. To know for sure if it was built with RKE then the option codes would need to be checked. I or your dealer could check this with your VIN.

Your vehicle was built with keyless entry and factory security, so you'll be able have the new fob programmed to it.
