Looking for one of you service writers out there to give me an estimate for installing the OEM remote start kit. I posted this thread a while ago and no one bit. Let's try it again.
Why not DIY and save some $. Then you can tell us how to do it! [headbang]Looking for one of you service writers out there to give me an estimate for installing the OEM remote start kit. I posted this thread a while ago and no one bit. Let's try it again.
i'd like the viper system which i can monitor the car on my phone with an ap. don't know how well that would work with the factory stuff though. i have keyless entry and push-to-start. i'd hate to lose keyless entry to gain remote start.My neighbor works at Car Toys and he tells me you can get an aftermarket alarm w/remote start that will work with the factory fob and you won't have to bury a key or anything, either. That's what I plan to do after my experience with the factory alarm that came in my F150.
I'd really appreciate that. I have a Ti Hatch with Intelligent Access and Push Button start.I will check today for you. The push button cars are really tough we have done a couple at the dealership I work at. I will get some pricing today. Are you a key start?? or a push button?
Aftermarket units scare me, I have seen some of the work installers do, and in can get ugly. Im not saying all after market people are hacks but I would much rather have a Ford tech install one.
Thank you for the excellent info. I really appreciate your taking the time to do the research for me.[cheers]Ok here is what I found out today at work, our install tech has already done a few for both the key start and push button start cars. The Ford remote starts are retailed at
Key Start car remote start $245.71 labor at 2.5 hours
Push Button remote start $355.71 labor at 3.5
I am told that our cars are a little harder to deal with removing the trim panels etc.
If your dealer is like the one I work for we charge $60.00 per hour for labor on accessory installs for our customers. Some dealers may charge more its up to them.
