Sounds like you should buy one with the convenience package and be done with it.

I have a working remote start installed on my 2013 RAM Sport. I got it today. There is no factory remote start for these trucks yet. The company that installed mine is called Shark Mobile. The have a guy there that figured it out. They can be found at sharkmobile.com

2013 Ram 2500 SLT Crew Cab with key start ignition. I had the Factory Remote Start installed today. It was the first one the dealership had done. It took them about 4.5 to 5 hours to install it. It is not the same as the 2012. They had to pull the back seats out of the truck (I think the antenna is mounted back there in the 2013) along with parts of the dash.

I was kind of hoping the Uconnect app on my phone would be able to start the truck after install. I called Uconnect and they told me that it only works with factory installed Remote Starts at this time. There was actually a note about it on her help screen. They did tell me that it might work in a future software update though.

I did a distance test and with a clear path, I could get the truck to start from about 300 feet away. That is about as far as I walked so it might go further.

If you had the factory remote start installed at the dealer, you may be the first one. My dealer says this is not possible yet. Could you send me the name of your dealer so that I can contact him to get the part number, etc, so that i can get my dealer up to speed. I would like to get this done too.

Ok, I talked to Shark Mobile in Ontario Canada and they have did one sport with keyless ignition and works great. Unfortunately I live in BC Canada so this does not help me. I also called the Qruik Chrysler dealer in Marshfield and no they have not and can not at this time do a Sport, they did do a Ram with tip key ignition but not keyless. I also called Arthur chrysler in Ont Canada and they cannot do as well. My Sport is well optioned, I do have the convinence package, in fact the only options it does not have is remote start, rear video and 3.9 gears. So I guess I will have to play the waiting game for remote start or make the dealer trade me.

Default remote start

I have a '13 and dealer said they could do dealer install remote start when they came in. Now I find out that because my truck has the passive entry they do not have a module that works for this.
dealers solution is after market. But there isn't anyone who can do this in calgary.
So dealer tells me that a solution is coming ( this is apparently what they got from dodge) but it might take 6months.
By then I won't really be able to trade truck without taking huge hit on $.

Lame.. Should have stuck with GMC

Not too impressed with dodge

I spoke to every aftermarket remote start manufacturer I could find on the internet, all said they would have a solution down the road. The shark mobile company I mentioned in the above post was excellent and maybe they could direct you to a similar shop in calgary. I checked around the Vancouver area and found nothing so I am going to wait it out and am sure something will come up before next winter.
