start remote for the 14
 
Hi guys, our dealer doesn't provide remote start option with the car, he said it will come later. any idea if i bough a remote from US it would work on my car? i can find some remotes on ebay with start option, can these be used?

This feature would not be remote ( key fob ) related. You would need to get your vehicle programmed to allow this feature.

Some exports don't have the option because of local restrictions. OP didn't say where he is, but from the post, it isn't in the U.S.

The ME in the name might be Melbourne, not Maine.

He is from the middle east :D

on the subject ... I think there is a way bro.

I'm from saudi and there has been a guy who bought 2 key fobs & a part to be installed into his car ... Then programed at the dealer (UMC). His car is a 2013 300C .
i'll look for the info and send you a PM

I'm very interested in this, please pm me or post here when you get an update, it kills me that I have to sit and sweat out the first minute, while escalade owners remote start their car and have it cool as a cucumber by the time they reach it :mad:

my jeep came without the key remote start function, you have to get it reflashed to understand the program of the new keys, the agency gave me new keys and they costed me around 1600 AED, which is roughly 450 USD
clean install and new keys (same as the ones for non-export models)

That sounds about right Evil...

Thanks every 1 for the replay, i have talked to the dealer he said still we didn't receive a remote with start button option for the jeep 14'. my friend from UAE can you check if we can buy the remote from your side and program it here in QA. my friend from KSA, one of the guys done that also here for the 300c but it seems they are different (jeep,Chrysler) remote option or programming
