Default How easy would it be to add remote keyless entry to a '98 Civic LX?

I just bought a '98 Honda Civic LX. It has power locks, but no remote. Is there already a receiver for a remote in the car and I just have to buy a remote? Or if not, and I were to buy an aftermarket keyless remote system... how difficult is it to install the system myself? If it's too difficult to install myself, how much would it cost to have it installed?Also, if I were to buy an aftermarket, are there any recommendations??

its easy to wire up on your own but its hard to know where to place teh sensors in the car and to get a good spot for teh reciever. i would recommend an aftermarket alarm system but yes you should be able to get a remote from a honda dealership.

i got mine installed at a custom shop for vehicles. it cost about $500 but i also got a new stereo. i would recommend going and getting it done because i bought my car used and the person who had it before me installed his alarm and it made the inside light not work and then messed with the radio and made this horrible sound when you were driving.

i will say this- i bought my 1998 honda civic lx used in 2000. the previous owner had had the keyless entry installed (i found the receipt in the glove box), so i only had to buy the remote for about 80 was not a standard item on this model, sorry. i would definitely have the dealership install it though. you cant even tell mine wasnt factory.
