There is a vacuum pump in the right rear quarter panel, with vacuum hoses
running to all the doors and trunk. It is possible to retrofit an aftermarket
keyless entry system, and if they try to sell you an adaptor kit for vacuum
lock systems, tell them to keep it, you don't need it. BTDT.

Safety feature so that you don't lock your keys in the car.

When you use the remote, the car assumes you have the keys with you or at least
the remote so that you can get back into the car.
