PTS Remote start from OEM Fob

Well just wanted to let everyone know that I have installed a remote start in my Titanium with push to start that works off the factory key fob.

The installation does not require any additional keys or dealer scan tools. Although I do this for a living, I did install this (soldering all wires) in under 1 hour.

Here is the link to the hardware required to do it all.

It is currently raining so this is what I have to show for now, I will try to make a better video showing all the install tomorrow if I have a chance.

That looks pretty cool... you don't need some cheesy extra remote to use it.

nope, you can use the factory remote, just hold lock for 3 seconds and away it goes.

The best part is that the overall cost on a retail side is 100$ for the parts. The downside is that you do need their programmer to do the installation.

That is awesome!!! Looks like all the wiring is at/behind glove box? Did you just tap into the wires or actually cut and solder everything?

You don't have to cut anything, just strip the wire and solder. I try not to use taps on any wires just out of principle. Those things are terrible for intermittent problems.

And yes all the wiring is behind the glove box.

I would do this if I had the IA keyless ignition.

just the distance from the oem fob, but you can order a range extender kit from them but it has its own fob and separate antenna.
