Default New Remote Start

Just got my remote start installed and I love it. It snowed like crazy the first night it was in and in the morning it saved me from walking to warm up the Ranger. I love it.

i got a key cut, told the guy i just wanted it for the doors...so no chip... then took the chip out of the original key and used it in my install...

Those universal bypass modules can be very temperamental at times. It's best to use a programmable bypass. Cheaper than another chipped key too

It better be a midget who is funny. I don't want a boring midget.
