I have no idea, The salesmen said the push button can be removed so I can use my key if ever needed, but as far as adding the passive entry on and remote start too I have no idea, maybe I missed it but did you talk to your dealer about that, they would know either way, I think with the passive entry you get the button on both front door handles that you can push to lock the doors, so you would need a new door handle too, That would lead me to believe that remote start is probably a viable option that can be added (since they seem to have left space on the fob for other buttons) but the passive entry I am kind of doubting, but that is just my opinion, The dealer should know forsure what can and cant be done, I bet both are pricy if they can be added, especially the passive entry.

Yeah sounds expensive. I asked a rep at the dealer I was at on Friday but he told me passive entry wasn't even a option on ram 1500s. Clueless!! I guess I'll try calling around on Tuesday.

the passive entry on my '13 (bought in Dec '12) was part of the convenience group. i have the little buttons on the front door handles and do not need to press buttons on the fob to enter my vehicle. its like the corvette, just walk up and the car/truck recognizes the FOB and the doors magically unlock.
i would think this would be a big effort to install it on a truck that does not have it. and probably quite pricey if even possible.

The pushbutton start can not be removed like the challenger/charger and use the fob to start it.

I really doubt they will ever come out with a Mopar accessory passive entry/pushbutton start kit, remote start most likely. I have the pushbutton start and remote start from the factory, I like the no-key thing, even though it does get a little confused a times and wont lock the doors because it thinks the fob is inside the truck.

The 'keyless enter-N-go' is part of the 495.00 convenience group option that also includes auto high beams and auto wipers.
