Re: Anybody have remote start on 06 WK?

I have one on my 2006 Limited through the alarm system. I don't have any problems with it. I didn't do the install but I do remember the installer complaining that the install was a pain in the rear. I couldn't tell you what problems if any he had.

Re: Anybody have remote start on 06 WK?

I have an 05 Laredo.. I added the mopar remote starter from just for jeeps. Works just fine for me but if you have Mopar's EVS Security system installed you can't use it.. Not sure why.

http://www.justforjeeps.com/remotestart.html Item #82208859AB
http://www.justforjeeps.com/restinkit.html
Item #RemoteStartInstall

P.S. You need both of these items for the install..

Re: Anybody have remote start on 06 WK?

it is a factory integrated alarm system if my research is correct. still requires splicing like an aftermarket alarm but some people claim for it to be less quirky than other aftermarket alarms. what he's saying ^^ is that with this particular module you cannot get the remote start with it. i am very new to owning this jeep so my knowledge isn't as advanced as some of you so if i'm at all wrong please correct me

Re: Anybody have remote start on 06 WK?

I've got one in my niner that has the factory alarm, the installer had to put some interface in so the remote would work with alarm. I have no problems with it.

Re: Anybody have remote start on 06 WK?

i've always wanted the remote start for the jeep since this is the only automatic i've ever owned...i guess if i have a custom company here locally do it they'll have the know how to get it done. they are very pricey but on an alarm and remote start i would think that it is definitely worth it.

Re: Anybody have remote start on 06 WK?

I've been spoiled with my remote start! I hate having to go out and start my stang when I drive it in the summer. It's a 5-spd so no remote start.

Re: Anybody have remote start on 06 WK?

The EVS security works through the factory remote to activate/de-activate (arm/disarm) What happens is the alarm triggers when the vehicle is remote started. The only option is to not use the factory remote for locking/unlocking beause that is what runs the arming and disarming. If you put in a remote starter,get the keyless entry hooked up and just don't use the factory fob. No problems. Other than that,no problems at all putting a remote starter in any jeep.

And apstang50-there are companies that make starters specifically for standard transmissions.
