At the risk of sounding argumentative, auto lock & unlock does not work correctly, even if enabled on PIU. I'd like to have that...but it must be turned on with every re-start...

(To that end, Forscan shows an option of adding the auto windows up and down with the key fob...but this also doesn't work in the PIU)

Remote start settings may be enabled in the IPC...but r/s ill not function without an aftermarket solution to turn it on.

Keyless entry is already in the truck...but the fobs must be enabled via IDS to function.

I have a '16 PIU and have gotten familiar with them. I have installed via Forscan and some hardware, auto headlights, intelligent AWD gauge, park lights flash with lock, horn honk with second lock press, disabled DRLs....and I'm sure some other things I'm forgetting...
I have enabled RKE and auto-lock/unlock for a PIU before. You may want to double-check your BCM settings. Some police features such as the police rear door will need to be disabled for this to work properly.

I'll check it out. I never tried to enable auto lock as I read too many times that it won't work, unless reset every start in the IPC.

Police rear door? do you mean the hatch or the rear passenger doors? The rear passenger door controls are disabled with hardware and easily reversed.

I'll double check my notes as its been about 4-5 years but the settings enabled by default on PIUs was called 'Police Rear Door' - I assume it's the hatch but also changes the way locking works.

Someone needs to change the title of this to Forscan RKE and remote start discussion. I came here looking for mods but was very disappointed.🤷🏻‍♂️

Welcome to the Forum. :wave:
The 'Search' feature can help find certain items. For example, I searched on FORSCan RKE and came up with 13 different posts discussing that.
Here is just one of them. 2016-18 Police Utility Forscan Settings
