Wireless Shutter Control

I'm sure this has been answered somewhere, but I can't find it.

I have a Precision Design Wireless fob to use with controlling the shutter on my Pentax K-3 ii camera. I can find no instructions on how to use it. Has anyone have experience installing wireless shutter control?

Do you have the camera in the correct "drive mode"? I don't have a K-3, but on my K20D you have to set the drive mode for remote control.

Look at the back of you camera. there is a four way controller on the right side, select the top button which will have picture of what looks like pages and one that looks like a stop watch. It will bring up the selections, select remote with or without 3 second delay.. 3 second delay is preferred.
