Question Remote Start Add

Hello all,

I would like some input on adding a remote start system to my PT. If there is another thread on this please direct me to it.

My PT is a 2002 without alarm or engine immobilizer, but it has the Power Central Locking system with Keyless Entry.

1. What system do you recommend for installation. I am on a budget, but do not want a cheap troublesome system.

2. What would be involved in the installation; obviously I am not going to do it, but it does not hurt to ask.

3. Will I have any functional problems such as loss of safety features (safety bypass), electrical gremlins, or anything else?

I am doing this because it has been getting very cold here and my work is less than 10 minutes away, so a warm car would prevent cold, cramped feet.

i had my wife's 2001 with alarm and immobilizer at a local shop that does alarms and audio systems. after taking it back the next day because the wipers and other little things didn't work, it was good to go. had it done last year and no problems since.

ya, your best bet is to shop around.

Thanks, yes that is what I have read too. I will have to look for a place with a good reputation. I am still thinking about it, but I will need to do some serious question asking at the shops.
