Factory Ford remote start?

Anyone know if you can just buy the module to have remote start added to your truck, i see on the parts stuff that you can buy the harness, module and some sort of sensor, all for about 300 bucks, i would like to know more info and see how hard it would be to do it, i sure would like to have it this time of year and still use a factory key fob and stuff, my last truck had an aftermarket remote start and i didnt really like how it all worked. thanks for the input.

I did this on my Excursion a few years ago. I bought an unused Ford kit on Ebay. It works great, never had any issues.

No plug and play, that would have been nice though. If the connections are done right, there should not be any problems. I see where you're coming from and I'm the exact same way. I thought the Ford would be more plug and play but it wasn't.

Thanks brandon, i will look into it more, i just figured ford could easily tie into the factory key fob to unlock and lock the doors, and could make an easy t for the keyswitch part. My buddy had factory remote start on his 03 and it looked clean under the dash and it looked like things just plugged in.

I was looking for the same thing you want. I could not find it, but that was 3 or 4 years ago.

Re: Factory Ford remote start?

well im pretty sure his truck was an 03, could have been dealer installed thou

I think some of them come from the factory but they might be dealer installed as well.

Re: Factory Ford remote start?

Did this with an 06. Wasnt offered from the factory. The dealer did it but it was like 700 total. I had the remote start with the alarm and everything. Just from having to deal with the current ford remote start. Id say save your money and go aftermarket. I wish I would have saved my money. The new "factory" system is way worse than the Ford Gold I had the dealer put on.
