You would need to get the remote start kit for Just4Jeeps and then sweet talk your dealer
to enabling it for you. That is going to be your main problem as it is technically illegal for cars to have remote start. Several of us want it, but none of us have gone through the process. I would ask the dealer first before you buy the kit.

I am planning on ordering this for the spare keys. The kit is 230 dollars which is cheaper than 2 seperate keys in Aus. The keys that come with it also have the flipper glass and panic functionality that my original keys do not have

Re: remote start on AUS verion

I've been to the dealers yesterday and inquired about the remote start thing, the service agent said that they used to install it for the wk2 but stopped doing so a couple of weeks back, the reason being that most of the cars that was done was taken back to remove the system after causing some problems (remote start not functional/steering wheel keeps locking/doors wont lock...etc.) hence they stopped the service, according to him, vehicles for export outside the US has compatability issues with the mopar system, this might be solved in the future, but not sure when...this has been the case in the United Arab Emirates...for other places, i am not sure what is the case...but you better investigate before you go and buy the kit...
