Your going to need to look under the dash for the keyless box.

There is a link from HandA that shows how you would go about installing the box if you dont have it. Use the install instructions to locate where exactly the box would be, no tools required for this just open up under the steering wheel and peak you head in. If the box is there get the codes off of it and order a key fob on ebay for cheap. If the box isnt there and the wire is still taped up by blue tape, then order a keyless entry from Handaaccessories.com for a good deal and fast service.

It's all real simple to figure out just read the instructions and you'll see its simple.

I've made a 'small' correction to your reply, just to avoid confusion...

03 E's didn't come with keyless entry from the factory as an option. Some we're dealer installed afterwards, and many E ppl added them on, because they are so simple to do...

I think they came as an option in 05, and became standard in the EX's after that...

(I may be wrong about the dates, as we don't have EX/LX/DX in Canada...DX and 'Y' only up here)
My 03 Y didn't come with it, but I had the dealer throw it in...

I like black box better... had i said receiver unit i could have meant a pink circular "receiving unit." i just preferred to give description of the item they were looking for instead of its purpose and duty :) makes it easier when looking for said items!
