Ok, I have an overland with the factory remote start...which works great. The only thing lacking, is I wish I had 2-way confirmation if/when it started.
Rather then installing a separate 2-way remote start and carrying a 2nd fob...I was searching, and came across Car Link by Audiovox. This is one of those systems that let you remote start your car from a smartphone. I know viper, clifford etc make somethign simlar, but those you need one of their alarm systems. What caught my eye on the Car Link system was the following verbiage: "Compatible with any Prestige, Code Alarm and Pursuit security or remote start system with data port"
So, I dug a little deeper and read thru their install manual.
It indicates 2 modes for this device. Digital, which you adapt to one of their alarms, and analog. This is what it says:
"In analog mode this wire is controlled by the START icon and provides a 1, 3.5 or 10 second ( - ) 500mA output capable of driving relays. Connect this wire to the external remote start activation wire of the remote start system."
Does anyone know if our Cherokees have a lead that taps into factory remote start?
What I like is th Car link, 1st year service is free
Any help would be great! thanks!
