Everything works now except I would have prefered to keep the two normal beeps when I remote start it so I can tell if it started or not.

Someone said that your car can be stolen if you remote start with the car unlocked and that may be true but any car can be stolen if they want it bad enough. When I get in after remote starting I have to put the key into the ignition prior to hitting the brake pedal or the thing shuts off. Locking the doors and having the brake shutoff is good enough for me.
Well I'll be... I didn't even think to check that side for my button.

Maybe it'll be my lucky day and I'll finally be able to reprogram the darn thing!
