I haven't installed this yet, and was reading this thread because I intend to.

After reading 21 pages of responses, I would say, for sure yes, it would work.... but not with the remote start button on your remote.... You'll still have to push the lock button 3 times like everyone else, since that is what activates it.

How did you end up with a FOB with the remote start button, but no remote start on the truck??? Just curious...

I have no experience with this product... but from what I have read I don't see why it wouldn't work for you. I have a 2012, and know it will work with that if properly programmed....don't see why you having a different remote would change anything.

Some members have had some issues for the 2012 as to some programming parameters that must be set right,....some have had them come in wrong when pre-programmed. I'd read through this thread a bit to make sure you know how to order it, or you can get the programmer and play with it yourself.

If everything is programmed right, it should be a quick and sweet install!

Ok,

So after reading most of the posts in this thread earlier today, I knew what I had to ask for when ordering a pre-programmed unit.

Now that I've come back to finish the few posts I didn't read earlier, I don't remember the details, and haven't quickly found them searching through the earlier posts.

How exactly do I have to ask for it to be programmed for a 2012 Ram? I know there have been a bunch of people who have had to have it reprogrammed because a setting was set on, when it should be off or whatever.

What are the exact instructions I need to give to a seller on e-bay, to assure that it will work first time, assuming they program it correctly? What is the setting that I must empasize they get right, (since as it is set by default, is the wrong setting to work on a a 2012), to make sure it works when I get it???

Also, while your at it, wouldn't hurt to confirm the harness model needed. If you know that answer, the harness is a simple answer as well....but probably easier found than the unknown programming setting I'm looking for....

I can't remember, and it's kinda a technical thing that isn't easily remembered anyway.

Thanks... this is the best thread I've read anywhere in a long time!

i bought mine from this guy http://www.ebay.com/itm/120965744748...84.m1439.l2649

I don't know who he is or who they are... regardless, all I told him is I need it for a 2012 RAM 1500 - it has the dball and the harness together on his auction. As soon as I got it... plugged it in and fired right up. Once you connect it.. just follow the steps on turning it to ON.. then press off... then unlock.... then test it out.

Took me 5 minutes to install it.

Also, the starting the engine - as long as you get 3 honks within 3 seconds.. it should start... you can get 4 honks in 3 seconds and it will start - point is, as long as it gets 3 honks in 3 seconds - its the trigger.

Oh wait.. I also found that antenna info... let me find the pic.

So here's what I found on extending the range - (see attached)

This can be attached to the DBALL - but obviously, it will use these FOB instead of the facotry one... "apparently" the first model extends to 1000ft, then the next is 1500ft, then the next is 5000ft... 3rd model is 2 way - meaning, fob has an indicator if the car is fired up or unlocked and so forth.

I haven't tried to install any of them or even find out how to program them since i don't really have much time right now, christmas and all.

If I decide to move forward with it, and no onese else have.. I'll post info.

Looks like that seller includes the hood switch, and the overide switch with the kit? Shows it in the picture, but makes no mention in the description. Did you receive them or are they not included?

Thanks.

Yes they included it...and some other wires but I haven't installed the override switch or the hood switch... the other wires must be for something else since I only used the DBALL and the harness.

Thanks,

Probably wouldn't install them right away.... It's getting cold here, and I hate working in the cold. Maybe I'll put them in when things warm up again, if I even put them in. Nice to have the option though.

How was the shipping time from the seller? I hope to have something ordered, and installed asap. Plan to place the order tonight.

<edit> - Ebay predicts to arrive in NY by Friday, with free shipping. Im in Canada, but not far from the border so for sure worth the trip to pick it up. Save the 25$ shipping...and it will be here this week. Great!
