Re: Remote Start
DO NOT PUT A REMOTE START SYSTEM IN YOURSELF. Unless you've been a car audio installer over the passed few years, things have changed. The WK is one of the most complex cars out there (not really) but there computer systems are extremely touchy.
An aftermarket shop will probably be in the range of $300-$800 installed, fully depending on what system you get. Do not install anything other then a Viper rs (IMHO). You will not have to give up a key, but you will need what is called a bypass, it will learn the chip code of your vehicle and integrate into the vehicles CAN-BUS system. Also, make sure the shop installs a hoodpin switch, whether it be a ball bearing type, or fixed mounted metal switch, without that switch you can cause serious injury to yourself, mechanic or friend.
I personally have the Factory RS in my 07 WK, came with the vehicle, it works perfectly for my needs, the range isnt anything like that of an aftermarket system, but it does work perfectly.
Any specific info you'd like feel free to shoot me an email, i've been an MECP certified car audio installer for 8 years now.
