Responding to customer requests for the feature, Kenworth has introduced remote, keyless entry on its T680 and T880 trucks.
The option, which can be retrofitted through a kit available at Kenworth dealers, provides two key fobs for locking and unlocking the truck’s doors.
Like most conventional key fobs, a single click on the unlock button unlocks the driver’s side door, while two clicks unlock both cab doors. A single click of the lock button locks all doors.
Kenworth has also included a third button which allows operators to enable and disable the pre-trip light check without hopping in the cab.
