Remote start tip
 
Today, I got my tuck to start with the stock remote start from well over a hundred feet away. It seems to work from a farther distance if you wait about 1.5 or 2 seconds between the first and second press of the remote start buttom on the key fob. I have to be pretty close to get it to start if I press the start button twice in rapid succession.

If you are having trouble with your key fob (opening all doors or whatever) you may be pressing the buttons to fast. Try it slower and see if it works better.

I just now started the truck from from 73 yards away (shot it with my range finder). :SHOCKED: I guess this may be the trick.

I Agree! :smiley_thumbs_up:

My personal best is 550' with fresh batteries. :woohoo:

Dodge claims it will reach 300'. I remote start mine at work through two walls, about 130' away and can't see the truck when I hit the button. It always starts!
