New to me 2012 titanium missing remote start fob

Hey all , i recently picked up a 2012 ff titanium which has remote start installed. Sadly the dealer i got it from has no fob and gave me a brush off when asking about it. So im asking which fob do i need and is it easy to program?

Talk to your dealer's parts department, see what they say. You don't have to buy from them, just ask which fob you need and how much it would be to program. That said, and keeping in mind that I know nothing about remote start fobs (mine has manual transmission), I'm seeing four out there:

My Titanium has a push button start, and it's remote start fob is like the last one in the link.

Also, I want to mention, that my remote start was installed not in a factory, but at the dealer.

Was the remote start standard equipment on the Titanium? I know it is now but wasn't sure about 2012. My remote was also installed by the dealer. The 2012's remote start was a factory order but a dealer install. Basically install the antenna on the windshield and reflash the BCM, if I recall correctly. So Squire1287, if it was standard equipment on the Titanium then you need the last one in the list.

I dont think that it was standard. Cant find any info about remote start on the window sticker.

Yes, there is antenna on the windshield, and it connects to PowerCode Module, which when connects to God knows what. There are a lot of wires connecting to that module.

It looks like this
