Remote Start

Has anyone had a remote starter put in thier XK yet?? Other than the Mopar unit?? I know that Code Alarm makes the Mopar unit and they sell one for a lot less that they claim will work. Just not sure if I'm ready to void my warranty 5 months in.

if you put a remote start in it voids the warranty? I was unaware of that. thanks for the heads up, I was going to put a remote start in..

It really won't void the warranty....It's just that if anything breaks due to the aftermarket install DC won't cover the cost of that repair.

Re: Remote Start

Installed Diversified (?) Remote starter @ aftermarket dealer. $185 installed. Works great, but should have gotten the higher priced LCD remote. With the LCD, you can see that it has started rather than having to look outside.

I paid 280.00 Installed... each. But I will say you have to be a wiring expert (or atleast better than I wanted to try), it's not plug n play like the 'real' Mopar. The vendor is a friend of mine...I can check to see if he'll sell the kits seperately...any interest?

Re: Remote Start

I want one installed by someone other than myself. I'll probably just check circuit city or best buy. My wife has one on her GC that we got from circuit city. It works great but it was like $350 because of the stupid chipped key. The dealer where I bought my commander wants $600 for a Mopar one. Way too high.
