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.

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.'

$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: http://www.fordparts.com/Commerce/Pa...rd&model=Focus

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

Thanks!
Crystal

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.
