Remote start

Has anybody installed the OEM remote start? I know I can do the install and I'll have to get the keys cut. Just curious if you really have to have the dealer install it like it says.

Mine has a 3rd party remote starter. It's a separate fob for the key chain and it works great. It's got a longer range than the factory one on my Wife's Impala. I didn't install it - I bought my jeep used and it was already on it. I wouldn't have gone for a factory one anyway, it would've cost too much to add in.

The fob has "codealarm" stamped on it. I work in a 13 story building, my cube is on the 11th floor. I can remote start my car in the lot at ground level from my window - that's a range of roughly 120 to 130 feet. My Wife's factory installed remote won't hit any further than maybe 50 feet. I don't know if Jeeps factory unit has greater range or not though ...

They claim 800 feet with the factory one. Any interference and you may as well think 20 feet. I have heard you need to be in direct line of sight with no walls. I have had many after market ones in the last and I could start my truck from inside my work 300 yards away. If range is what you want then go after market. If you want to maintain factory and only have to carry around one key fob then go factory.

I have the factory remote start and I can start my Liberty from my office on the second floor on the opposite end of the building. I am very pleased with it.

I recently had a viper security alarm and remote starter installed.

The remote has a range of 1 mile, which is really amazing.

I've also got smartstart installed, basically I can start my jeep from anywhere in the world using iphone or android phone. it sends alerts to my phone, if the alarm has been triggered, and has a gps locator to locate the car, speed and direction of the jeep.

I got one installed when I took delivery of my new 2011 liberty, only issue I have is that it does'nt stay running long enough. I asked my service adviser at the dealership if you could go into the computer and extend the running time and he said won't do it. You would think with all the computer and electronic stuff you'd be able to just hook up to the computer and just download a new program.
Anyway I still like it.

how long does it stay running for? Most OEMs are limited to 20 minutes

There are two run time settings on the factory unit, I don't recall the run times. My last Jeep had a Compustar and you could change it with the remote control. That's probably the top of the line remote system out there.

You might want to check this out on the Nitroforunz.com site http://www.nitroforumz.com/showthread.php?t=34396 . A remote starter for $115 and a 10 minute install. Just remember you get what you pay for in starter units. Also check out fortinbypass.com site for the bypass module info and all the starter companies and models that work with it. The thread is in the knowledge base section so you will have to log-in.

My starter is supposed to shut the car down after about 10 minutes but just after I got the thing I wanted to test it. I went down to the basement and hit the remote start. It worked, and then I hit the button again - I thought it was supposed to shut it down. I went out about an hour later and it was still running. I haven't tried it again, leaving it run that long that is. It does have a security interlock too,after remote starting I got in and and put the key in the ignition but didn't turn it all the way to the run postion. When I put my foot on the brake pedal it shut down immediately. I had to cycle the key to get it to start again - turn it all the way off and back over to start.

The OEM Start right from the manual

--

Press and release the REMOTE START button
on the RKE transmitter twice within five sec-
onds. The parking lights will flash and the horn
will chirp twice (if programmed). Then, the
engine will start and the vehicle will remain in the
Remote Start mode for a 15-minute cycle.
