Remote starter reprograming, anyone know how to do it

Hey there guys, just woundering if any one knows how to or even if it's possible to reprogram the amount of run time on a mopar dealer installed remote starter. Right now it starts and runs for 10 mins then shuts down, i live in a colder part of canada, where i need at least 15 to 20 mins of warm up to get everything defrosted, right now i have to re started the thing every 10 mins, this gets anoyying after awhile. Any help would be appreciated.

I looked at having the remote start put on mine but because I also have the security system it had to be dealer installed ($500 give or take) because of the reprogramming required. This may be something that the dealer has to do.

Hmmm. I certainly hope you have a CVT and not the 5-speed, as the remote starter will not work with the manual tranny.

my patriot has the cvt. I'm soon going to be heading into the dealer for an oil change i'll ask them about reprograming of the remote starter. If i knew the remote starter only ran for 10 mins i wouldn't of got the thing, but hey maybe thats why it was so easy for me to negotiate it into my deal, i got a free remote start and install...lol

Copy that, Bae146jet. Good luck with the remote.
