Figured it out, turns out that you have to run a wire to the relay in the fuse box and wrap it around one of the pins to ground the parking lights to get them to turn on.

What starter system did you install? I want to get a remote starter installed before winter, and am pretty set on the Mopar kit, but would love to hear your input on the aftermarket route. Cost? Functions? Installation? Key Transponder Antenna?

Ok, this is going to be a little lengthy.

First, I DO NOT recommend that anyone does there own install unless you are prepared to install it or have done something like this before. Pay to have it installed, I could not get the bypass module set up, so I paid $25 for Mickey Shorr to do it, and to my surprise it would have only been $89.99 to install the remote start. Well worth the $110 to have someone else deal with it.

Hereís what I chose to do.

I would only recommend a Directed Electronics product. So, it came down to two choices, the Viper (4203V) or the Python (4203P.) Only difference between the two was the price and the style of the remote. I chose to go with the Python which is $40 less. The main features are as follows, 2 way which confirms vehicle has started, 2000 ft remote range, and Driver Take Over. Letís say you want to run into the gas station to grab a pack of cigs. Normally you would have to shut the car off and then remote start it. This remote starter allows you to leave the vehicle running and remove your key. However, you cannot lock it, but the second you touch the brake, the system shuts down.

The bypass module I used is some what new. The key feature is that you do not need relays to drive your accessories, and you only need 2 keys to program it. Most bypass modules for Chrysler you have to install the key in the module and leave it under the dash. **You will need 2 working keys** I couldnít get this part, so I had it done by Mickey Shorr.

The main reason I stayed away from the Mopar kit was no 2 way, low range, and no driver take over. Plus it would have cost $265, so mine was less and I got what I wanted.


Break Down

Python 4203 $140 (Ebay)
PKU-CH2X Bypass $25 Ebay.
Install $25 for the bypass.
Total Cost $ 190.

Any questions you have, let me know. The pictures are of the remote to compare size, and the install.

I recently got an aftermarket remote start installed. I went with the Viper Responder One for its two-way capabilities, distance, and size of remote. The remote itself is tiny, it beeps and the LED flashes green to confirm it started, I would highly recommend it. Paid $400 with parts and labor.

Jeep (Mopar) has a two way remote start cheaper than that. Here are the three components you need:

If you can find someone to do the install for less than $50 then it'll definitely be under $400. I would've honestly preferred the Mopar system but it just seemed a little outdated (design of remote) and the range was better on the Viper. I called a Jeep dealer just out of curiousity to see how much they would charge to have the factory system installed (new fob) and it would've costed me just a bit over $600. I really wanted to go that route too but then it wouldn't have the 2 way feature and the range again was only 800 feet.
