Re: Remote Start

I have one on my WJ and used to use it all the time before I had a garage. It was awesome when it was cold and I would get in a warm and defrosted Jeep to go to work.

I do not think they were offered factory (but not 100% sure).

Re: Remote Start

I have a viper remote starter system. I have it so it unlocks the doors thru the aftermarket remote. On the WJ you need some special module to unlock the doors due to the key (thats what they told me at the shop) So it ended up costing me $300 for remote starter/unlocks with a new remote rated at 2000 feet.

Re: Remote Start

From what I understand, it was not a factory option. If it was, I would have added it already on mine. I've also heard the same thing that you need some kind of override module of some sort to be able to do it due to the security system in our Jeeps.

Getting a system like what 4.7beast has is probably the best thing out there. The lock/unlock range on our factory remotes suck, so you kill 2 birds with one stone.

I've considered looking into a system (my last XJ had one and I got spoiled), but I park in a garage everyday. I'd only ever use it when I go to leave work, so I'm not so sure it's worth the expense for me.

4.7beast can you tell me what model your viper is ?
Edited because I was a fork and didn't read 4.7beast's post thoroughly

Cool ! I found the 4104 for $128 did your receipt have model number for your bypass module ?

Re: Remote Start

No it does not give me a model number for the module. I believe the part was an extra $80
