Re: Anybody have remote start on 06 WK?

I have a remote starter/alarm combo, The Viper 5901 2 way. I used a bypasskit for the transponder key and the door locks. It took about 20 minutes to program the bypass. Otherwise it was an easy install. I now don't use my remote key (which are expensive and break easy) I use a "rock" key that cost $30. and I keep my remote keys in the safe incase I need to program a new one.

And apstang50-there are companies that make starters specifically for standard transmissions.
Really didn't know that. But you have to make sure it's always in neutral and with the ebrake not working that great I always leave it in gear!

When I had the remote start put in the niner they had to put some interface in so it would work with the factory alarm, it was like an xtra $75.

Re: Anybody have remote start on 06 WK?

I have the Viper 5701 with remote start in mine. Works great. I havent had a problem yet. I just use the remote that came with the unit and one of my spare keys that doesnt have the lock/unlock buttons on it. I also had them wire one of the aux features to pop the back window hatch. That way I wasnt losing any functionality while not using my original key. I love it and it has come in very handy this winter.

Re: Anybody have remote start on 06 WK?

8+ years of car audio installation experience. I can tell you its 100% doable, with no issues. I've installed countless remote starters and alarms in D.C.J vehicles that all use the same platform.

any questions feel free to shoot me a PM and i can give you some more detail on anything you'd like to know.
