Re: Extending keyless entry range? (significantly)
I'm not familiar with the aftermarket range extenders, but it looks like soldering on an antenna to the module is not uncommon with other vehicles. I'll be grabbing that spare wireless module from the junkyard tonight, so I'll update with what I find (I'll include pics)

Ok, got it! Spent $4.97. Here's a pic of the guts, but I can't directly link it yet (not enough posts):
Looks pretty straightforward; the antenna is obvious and is one wire only. I think I could probably find a suitable aftermarket antenna and add it in. I'll probably add a connector or socket of some kind on the unit itself so I can disconnect the antenna if I decide not to use it later (or if the results are disappointing).

One more issue - I'm not sure where the remote control info is stored... If it's stored in here, I'll have to do the whole long remote programming thing all over... grrrrr...
