Where did you see that, I think I'm looking at it correctly on the matrix on page 24 shows it standard in the sport and laramie trim.

Did your truck come factory with remote start, or did you add it after?
If it came factory, then the security system is part of the 'group'. If you added the remote start after the fact, then you don't have the security alarm feature, and would require the additional hardware and programming to enable it.

Oh I see it now. I was looking in the written description page. It shows the box is standard but the description says "part of the remote start and security group"

Truck did not come with remote start OR security so it looks like I'll be going aftermarket for it.

I might be totally out to lunch here, but I believe adding the security option will require adding the hood switch and having the computer programmed. Maybe check with your dealer to see if it is indeed that simple.

Hmm. What kind of switch is it? Magnetic, mercury, or a pin?

I just ran out to look (which also allowed my brain a chance to work a bit better), and it's a mechanical switch located right on the hood latch that is used for both the security alarm and the remote start, so if you have the OEM remote start, you already have the switch, so I think the only thing required is computer programming to enable this option.

My truck has the alarm but no factory remote start, it didn't have hood switch. When the dealer added remote start they replaced hood latch with switch incorporated into it.

Last night I went to our local dealer and asked both the parts guys and the service dude if one could add the factory alarm to a 2010 truck that already has the Remote Keyless Entry with the FOBs that lock the truck. They said "no".

Is that true? Seems like the truck has everything it needs to implement the factory alarm. I'm still searching...

I have an SLT and of course no alarm (even my 2007 Dakota SLT had an alarm) you would think that adding the alarm programing would not be too difficult. The computer already senses when a door is opened. So unless there is an additional module needed for the alarm or a relay to connect to the horn this should be a snap to make this happen.
