Anyone ever look into the Viper 5901 remote start/ security system? I found it on Amazon for $250 but I don't know who will install it and also what other parts I need (I have the push button start). Any ideas or thoughts on the system?

I would prefer a Viper remote start system as well. Would love to be able to start my car from iPhone! I did see somewhere (on this forum I think), that Viper does not have a compatible system for 2012 Focus w/push button start. Will try and find the link.

you just have to go to viper's website and see what's compatible. unfortunately, out 2012 foci are not on that list.

just email/call viper tell them what you looking for and see if they can put something together for you, if thats what you want you can get it done for a price.

the 5901 is an alarm and remote start to get the iphone crap on it you pay for a module and a monthly fee (not worth it since the remote has a mile range, i tested it 1.3km away i could still start my car). i had one in my 04 with pretty much all the sensors you could get.

you could easily install this on a 12 the main issue is PATS bypass. chances are since the car is so new they haven't fully tested their bypass modules yet on the vehicle.

sending an email out to DEI asking what all they have will confirm any confusion on weather they have a working bypass.

^^ just got bored and looked up the bypass for a 12 focus, i see no reason you couldn't install this on your car

yeah, what he ^ said guys. also i dont think you need a monthly fee for the iphone to start the car. isnt it just a one time purchase of the app?

i have the 5901 on my car and it's been decent so far. only things i don't like about it is the delay in lock/unlock is longer than previous viper models and the two way remote screen cracked pretty easily and now i just use the one way. \

I would recommend talking to local shops first to see if any of them will install a unit that isn't purchased from them as most shops won't do it. not sure on the 12 focus, but previous models were around 160-200 for additional parts and labor at best buy (this is also geting the unit there for about 400 which included basic labor).
