well guys im installing a keyless entry/remote start system in my car tomorrow system i will be install is a python 1401 with evo-all module i'll let you guys know how it goes. are cars are alittle pain in the butt beacuse they combine the B.C.M and S.J.B and Smart key module all together so doubt that u will be able to use the factory remote after remote starting. one thing i did notice is that u can use the factory remote to remote start it but can't use the factory remote to turn if off after u remote start it with the facoty remote beacuse the remotes will be disable after remote start. but u can use the key in the door handle get in and drive away ofcourse if you step on the brake before hitting the push start button first the car will shut off. yesterday i was trying out the range on the factory remote and it has pretty good range in an open parking lot but ofcourse when your in the city signal will get affected. cross your fingers and wish me luck :)

I want the remote start with the smartphone app like Chevy has. Maybe someday.
Have been tpld the viper pss3000 with a dball module will work with the car. Car toys wants 427 to install it and best buy wants 470. Just leary of putting it on the vehicle but here in Texas all of our vehicles have always had remote start so something will go on soon.

the distance was pretty good using the factory remote in a parking lot i was about 10 or 12 cars away and i still had full control if range if the problem i still have the after market remote. ofcourse range depends on where u are building and car garages and so on but are factory remote have pretty good range to start it from the house. im going to see whats the limits on it but im not too worried about range beacuse by the time u get to your car from walking across the parking lot it will be nice and ready for you

and the smart start from dei is good but i don't see paying every year so i can start my car from the phone. to me it's not worth it. how many times are you going to start it with your phone. i will only use it to start it when and if my car sleeps outside the garage and on hot summer days when we go out :)

Thats what we did for our mazda 6 in 2008 but we don't want an extra remote and we want the distance that the phone can give us. My wife works in an office and the daycare is in the same building so I want the car cooled off when she comes out. Can get the remote start for 199 plus 50 for the module but then need it installed. Don't want to void our 100k warranty that we got. Any ideas will be much appreciated.:)
