Re: Remote Starter

yes the range is not that great! and it is another thing to have on your keys not intergrated into key fob like newer models.

Re: Remote Starter

I have the Mopar starter and have no issues with it. Was a fairly easy install if I remember right. Range-wise I can start and stop if from about 150+ feet with no issues.

Re: Remote Starter

I just bought a viper 5901 ( I think that's the model.)
it's a 2 way. So you can see how warm your jeep is on the key fob. You can also set the run time. It will turn on my heated seats and defrost. They say it works from 1000 ft.

Oh and the mopar one is a rebranded Chinese company starter FYI
