Default Factory Remote Start Install 2007 Ram 1500 Quad Cab

Okay, I found some factory remote start kits on ebay that are Mopar parts. Comes with everything needed. BUT

How much do you think the dealer will charge to scan it with the scanner tool to set the computer and program the new keys that have the start button built into the Key FOB. ?

If you bought it from them and are a regular customer of there service, they'd likely do it for free.

Otherwise they hit you for the shop minimum which is usually 1 hr. No idea what your dealer's shop rate is.

Good point RB, definitely worth it to be a regular customer at your local dealership.

I can tell you after researching all of this the Dodge factory remote start sucks. I went with a Viper system that has like a mile range and it kicks ass. There are so many features and you get two remotes. You can even buy an add on that lets you use your phone to start it.
Look into it. Very well worth it.

I purchased 2 of the keys you see below and programmed them myself. I found mine on eBay for like 15.00 for 2. All you need is your 2 existing remotes and after 5 min. your ready.

Second photo is of the Viper 5301 system I used. Just an idea of what the remote looks like.
