Adding keypad entry to an OBS F350

Ok,
I have heard rumor that installing a keypad for keyless entry to an OBS is possible provided you have keyless remote entry.

Anyone done this and/or what you share how to do it? I would think i simply need to connect the keypad wires to the module but that is where my guessing ends.

I want to do this after vacation so if you want to share, i want to learn.

No, look under the dash it's between the chime box and cubby hole to lower right of steering wheel, has 3 plugs in it, if you remove the lower dash its easy to spot, has 5 digit code on it

There is a grey 2 prong plug you have to "short" it and then program the key fob, not sure on the exact procedure but it's in the rke write up in the general chat, bill did a good one on programming the fob and adding the key pad
