Anybody have remote start on 06 WK?
 
I am just around the corner from getting a remote start/alarm system installed on my jeep but i read up on another forum that the laredo was not supposed to be compatible with remote start?...anybody have the remote start and do you have any issues at all?

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.

so you have the remote start on the jeep factory alarm system? just curious because i'm doing an aftermarket alarm and remote start..i'm thinking in the end it may be different..anybody else out there?

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.

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

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 :)

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.

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.

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.

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.
