Default Remote Start install.

Hello fellas!

I am getting a remote start for Christmas this year and am so excited! I have some small electrical background as in I installed my power window and keyless entry. I'm looking for the wiring diagram that is needed for the remote start installation. I have read around and it seems difficult but it doesn't seem that bad, as long as I have the appropriate wiring diagram I should be good togo. I was wanting to know if anyone had installed a remote start and if so how long did it take and what kit did you use and what diagrams, installation guide, tools did you use? Thanks in advance for any and all help!

The one I got came with instructions. What brand are you going to use?

I got a Autopage alarm/remote start.

So anyways I found and bought one on eBay from Ready Start. It says it comes with instructions and is brand new. It was $40 and it comes with 2 key fobs and what not. Hmm.. Seems legit. So what module will I need for my PATS key interface? And where can I find it?

So i installed the remote start part, now all i need is the transponder bypass kit. I bought one but it didn't work. It was PKU-F2. It will start with the key in the ignition just chillin with the chime. But when i take it out, it doesn't do anything. I programmed the bypass kit and installed it with the loppy thing and wired it... But nothing. Question is... Is the positive and negative keysense wires coming from the chip right under the ignition lock cylinder? There was a green and white cable there and i hooked it up to them, my bypass kit came with a green,+keysense and white -keysense. So if theres a different location of the positive and negative keysense please let me know! Thanks for all the help!

on most i have installed you need a 3rd key that is programed to the vehical because you have to put the chip in the bypass module i cut the key off after its programed and wire tie it to it.

Alright success!!! I have finally installed my remote start. Apparently the bypass module I bought was defective and had to buy a new one from
Best Buy. Argh! I hate best buy! Lol but none the less I put everything back together and now I can start my truck in the freezing cold from the comfort of my own home thanks for all the help guys!
