Im looking into Remote start for my Jeep, but Ive been told 2 things that im not sure about. Firstly, I already have keyless entry so I was looking into the 2 way remote start only system from Viper(4205V). With that said it leads to the first of my 2 questions. The dealer said on Jeeps with aftermarket remote start the OEM fob will not work while the car is running. Meaning I would have to unlock my jeep manually everytime I wanted in. Im unsure of this because everyone I know with a Viper system does not have this issue. Granted none of them have Jeeps.
The second issue I have is they keep telling me I need a bypass module for the chip in my key. Ive done some research on this and I firmly believe I have the black (nonchipped) key. Picture of my key: http://i.imgur.com/PvtuNRg.jpg
If this is the case why would I need a bypass module (that costs an extra $100+) to bypass a nonexistent chip? Also, when I turn the key to the "On" position nowhere on my dash does it show a Key symbol or say "Security"
I admit I am not an expert on remote start or Jeeps, but these two things seem a little upsaley to me. If anyone has experience with this and can help me I would be extremely grateful. Thank you for taking the time to read this!
