Hi Guys,
I did mention this on a thread some time back, purchased a remote start from autotrucktoys, unfortunately not suitable for UK spec vehicles. Autotrucktoys were very good taking it back as it had been fully installed on my JC before it became apparent it was not suitable. They have asked me if I could mention that they now have a 'used' remote start kit for sale on the site if anyone is interested. Only fair to pass on good comments when you have received good and fair service from a site, and no I have no connections with them at all!! That's my good deed done for the day. :)

Re: Used Remote start kit for sale

Hi, 2 reasons, diesel and security. They managed to get over the diesel problem by using an accessory that clifford supply for exactly that problem, something to do with the spark that petrol uses that diesel doesn't?? It fell at the last hurdle as they got it to start, but it kept cutting out. They spoke with a top tech guy at the jeep dealership and he said that in the UK our security system is superior to the states, and if the engine thinks it is being 'attacked' it will start to fry the main control unit...great!! After 2 days of installing it they were advised to get it off asap. Yes hindsight is a good thing, I should of consulted Jeep first. To be fair the web site should state that it is only for US spec vehicles and only petrol. So there you have it, real shame looking forward to getting that gadget, would of been soooo cool!:(

Hi, sorry, should of closed off this thread, I managed to return the item to auto trucks toys.com. for a full refund which was very fair. They are selling it now at a second hand price, you need to contact them if interested. Ricky.

On ebay right now you can find a new remote start kit for $175. There's only like five hours left, but I'd bet that it'll be relisted if he doesn't sell them all. The ad says there are three available.
