I saw on another thread, a link that listed late option availability dates. It seems to me that factory remote start is supposed to be available the second week of July. I am hoping that I can get it as a dealer installed option on my PM that is supposedly shipping 8-14-14. In most cases there isn't much wiring necessary for remote start if the vehicle had it available as an option. I'm hoping for new fobs and a little programming and insto-presto, we'll see.
Still nothing available... it would be possible to get the vehicle to start by giving up one key.. remote would have to be hidden in the dash and integrated into the ignition system so the van starts and keeps running.
so if you didnt wanna wait...you'd lose a $120 key...and about $300 in labor and electronics...and you'd have to drag around an additional key fob...but you could start your van with your smart phone which would be neat
Bought a new PM just over a week ago and had the dealer throw a remote start in to close the deal.They are having a Phython remote start system installed and also had to order an extra key to be installed in a modual under the dash. I left the van at the dealer tonight for the install tomorrow. Will give update asap.
No update yet!! Dealer has had my van close to 2 weeks now and says it will be done Monday..Being told they had to order another key again, due to the first one being programmed wrong. Almost 2 weeks with out my PM but its supposed to be OK cuz the dealer gave me a loaner "car"..
Got my van back a couple days ago and the aftermarket remote start works great. Did end up with another key fob from the dealer since they had to use my single key for the modual hidden very well under the dash.
AVITAL Model 4103L
Remote start installed today. 240$ total from Custom Sounds in Bridgeton, MO
They used my valet key under the dash, so I had to give that up.
Lifetime warranty on parts and install.
They have been there for at least 20 years.
It works great and Im happy!.
ps.. and yes.. I now have an Avital fob to carry on my key ring.
