How do we Aussies get the remote start fitted to our MY14 jeep SRTs?
Dealer told me it's a no go when I bought it a month ago but would really love the remote starts.
I'm in Melbourne AUS. Happy to pay decent money to get it done.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Remote start is illegal in Australia. Something about not leaving a car with engine running with no one at the controls.

VF Holden and quite a few AMG Mercs have this feature? Surely if they are compliant with rules then we can do it too?
I wouldn't mind doing it through my standard keyfob so hoping someone can point me in the right direction.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

It's not illegal, it is however not possible on our Jeeps as the ADR required steering column lock makes it impossible.

Why not? Makes for a good relationship with the dealer, which helps me if anything goes wrong with my car in the future, and maybe help out someone on this forum who wouldn't otherwise know about it being for sale NOW, rather than wait 3 or 6 mths for one.

I hope Jeep AU don't find out you have a "relationship" with a dealer. I see you are in the hills so assume your dealer is Castle Hill. Our previous contact there, and other delaers who contributed to Jeep Garage (alexcjd??) were variously threatened by Jeep AU and told to not provide information to customers via this forum.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Ahh Yes. The Good Ol' Relationship with the dealer issue.
Yes. Jeep Australia appear to frown on such things. Anyone working for a dealership, who was helpful, or gave good service, or even had a good working relationship with a customer, was either dismissed, transferred to a lower ranked car brand, or chastised.
