View Full Version : OEM Mopar Remote Start kit from Ebay

08-24-2013, 10:32 PM
I have a 2013 1500 Quad Cab Express 5.7.
I just purchased an OEM Mopar Remote Start kit from Ebay and I see it even includes a replacement Hood Latch, a couple electronic components that go both under the dash and even behind the rear seat of the quad cab. Lots of wires and also mentions that I need the latest firmware upgraded from RAM to get this to work.
What would the best way to get it installed right? I can probably do a better job that a careless dealer would when it comes to tearing up my interior and running the wires and making sure it all gets plugged in where it is suppsoed to..There is a LOT of trim that the instructions mentions to pull apart.
BUTT... I need that software upgrade it mentions... DO I bite the bullet and pay the dealshersjip $300 to do the labor? Or only pay them to get it activated and install myself? Has Anyone tried any of this???

I would suggest talking to your dealer first to make sure they can do the flash and make it work. I've heard of guys having problems with adding remote start on the '13's.

When I bought mine I ended up having the dealer install it because they needed to flash it anyway but in hindsight I easily could have installed it myself and just had them flash it afterwards. That's what I would do if I were you.

I am getting the same kit. The service dept. told me I can install myself to save the money and they will flash it for $75. They said they have done several their with no issues. That was next on my list since its always hot in TX and I miss having it on my 09
