    It was a joke based on having had an Explorer stolen from me once.

    Luckily, the guy that stole it was using it to sell drugs on Hilton Head Island. All I had to do when I got it back was turn down the bass and turn up the dashlights... :)

    it is only covered under your vehicle warranty if it is purchased and installed on the day you buy the vehicle. Otherwise it is 2 years, unlimited mileage regardless on whether the dealer installed.

    Just an update/information. The person the Ford dealer I bought my car and remote access from DID NOT install Vehicle Security Kit 19A361 into my 2014 Sport. He said that it's already built into the car (but no shock sensor now). And the remote access works fine.

    OK so for all you guys that have installed this here is my question. I have a 2015 XLT on order. You can not order remote start as an option from the factory with this trim package. So you have to have it activated by the dealer. To install the modules and use the phone app you have to have the dealer activate remote start. For those who had the dealer install it did you have it activated as part of the module install or did you also have to buy what they call the 100 remote package to get it activated. In my area that will make the whole phone app package nearly $1,000

    You probably got your answer already but to add factory remote start the vehicle must have a hood pin. If its not there, a plug should be in it's place. See if there is a harness that goes to it. If there is, great, just get a hood pin $15-$30. Then the dealer or someone with IDS just has to enable remote start...a 15 min process. Every Explorer has it, just has to be enabled. Once enabled the phone app package could be added.

    Hi all,

    I'm interested in adding a remote starter to my 2011 XLT. Does anyone have any recommendations on which way to go, either OEM or aftermarket? I think I'd prefer to have it on my key instead of having a separate piece but the OEM ones seem to have a fairly short range. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks

    The main question you need to ask yourself is what distance is the majority of the "need" to remote start going to be? The OEM equipped system which just needs to be activated as a listed range of 300 ft. (my guess direct line of site). You can get OEM extended range (believe its 1000 ft) but that comes with a separate FOB or you can go the smart phone route and do it from anywhere (limitations on cell coverage apply). All of these are plug and play.

    Any aftermarket will need to be hardwired into the vehicle.

    Advice needed

    I just bought a used 2014 Explorer Limited. It already has remote start, so I have to think that the entire DL3Z-19G364-A kit isn't required. The dealer quoted me $600 for remote access and installation, but it would seem to me that maybe only the RMU is required, as I would think that the RMST is the same one I already have installed.

    Can someone confirm if the entire kit is needed, or if there is some add-on kit for those that already have remote start. Or if someone can point me to some Ford tech forum where I can ask the same question of an installer.

    Thank you.
    Doc

    Welcome to the Forum doctauri.:wavey:
    I see you mentioned that you have a Limited. My suggestion would be to add that model (Limited) to your profile so that it always appears in the margin and the members can use that info when replying to future posts.
    Have you checked out the following link? Not sure if it has an info that may be helpful.

    Good luck.

    2015 Explorer - Remote Start

    We bought our 2015 Explorer in July and are very please. Had the dealership install a remote start and it came with two additional 1 button fobs. Both are one way.

    We want to go with the Smart Phone app to start the vehicle and I have been told by another dealership (not returning to the original one as it is quite a distance) that we need parts DL3Z-l9A390-C and DL3Z-19A361-A for the app to work. I don't know what was originally installed by we we received manuals for the Remote Start System and Vehicle Security System. Is there a way to tell what has already been installed?

    These two parts an labour come to just over $800? Is there a way for me to save a few bucks?

    Your help is appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Shayne

    You already have the VSS which the RMU plugs into. So you just need the RMU...DL3Z-19A390-B....which might be at the C revision now.

    Hi Shayne. Do you still have the '02 Explorer? If not you should update your profile with the 2015 and add the 'trim' level (Base, XLT etc) which could be helpful in addressing some future concerns. If you still have the '02 the creating a signature with the new one would be an option.

    Remote Access stopped working today from my iPhone. I keep getting error code:

    The communication to the server failed. Please try again later.
    (00020002)

    I know 100% my iPhone is connected to the internet (I can get email surf web etc.). I have tried wifi and cellular and I keep getting the same failure.

    From my laptop, I can login and communicate with my vehicle through https://my.fordremoteaccess.com/home. It seems to be isolated to my iPhone.

    I have also rebooted my iPhone and reinstalled the app. Same problem.

    Anyone have any ideas or seen this before?

    Thanks!

    I contacted 1-800-FORDKEY and they pointed me over to support@spindance.com yesterday.

    I got a call from a program manager today explaining that they have found a caching issue on the server which was causing the connection timeout and they will be upgrading the server today/tomorrow.

    Anyways, just wanted to provide an update if anyone was following..

    On Ebay there is one seller that still sells the "old" version that goes through the TPMS.http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-OEM-STOCK-FACTORY-FORD-SMARTPHONE-REMOTE-START-STARTER-KIT-Iphone-android/311574093159?_trksid=p2047675.c100011.m1850&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D35625%26meid%3D7d7b6a571dcf402ea344fc9082da9e90%26pid%3D100011%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D3%26sd%3D351671912420

    I bought this, granted it took a bit longer than 20 min (maybe 30-40). I then went to my dealer with the instructions and the parts guy set me up in minutes for free. He told me very few people go for this, and since it was his first one, he got to learn. Win-Win for both of us.
    I spent $250, if I'd waited I could have gotten it for $200.00. They seem to have several unit still available.
