Remote starter
Has anyone installed the factory Ford remote starter on their 2012 ford focus? Its looks pretty easy and fairly Cheap, might a good option for those looking to get remote start.

what's the price on it?

is the convienence of the kit worth the price over the benefits of an aftermarket setup?

I called Napa for one a while ago. It was $799 before installation for one of their kits. Kinda got scared and never bothered checking with ford. But if the ford kits are priced better maybe I'll go that route.'

its $300 from ford, and says ford all over it, should be a nice install.

$799 for just a unit is rediculous. I've done these for years and the kits i've sold ranged from just under 100 to around 500. there are a couple more expensive ones out there with more options, but you can do it much less than 800.

is that $300 price installed from them? if so then that's not bad at all for a dealer piece.

Hey folks,

I believe this is the remote starter that Albarry is talking about:

If you have any specific questions about installation, you can call 800-FORDKEY for assistance.

That's it bi directional remote , and no not installed you do that yourself : )

Yeah I thought it was kinda crazy. I'm gonna ask for a price from Ford when I go to pick up my mats on Saturday. My boss bought a ' viper' remote start system. He can start his truck from his phone. I'm pretty curious how much they cost.

Best buy told me $750 out the door for them to install a Viper 5901 [ohcrap]

I can get one from ebay for $200...
