Did the dealership cut your new keys, or did you get them done at a hardware store? And if you don't mind me asking, how much did it cost? Thanks.
So I got my remote start working today. works great. Called other dealers and they tried to get me to buy a new system. $511.00 to get it installed and working. Thanks to Jason(Jmr061) I did not have to do that. Got my key from him since all xlt's and above has remote start already. He helped with the programming. total cost for key's, cutting and activating remote start was 210.00. Took the instructions Jason mentioned above. Made the techs job easier. One issue I am having is that the heated seats do not stay on when the remote start is activated. I had it set to "last user setting" but still goes off. Has anyone experienced this issue.
Also if you are still experiencing the funny smell from the engine during hard acceleration there is a fix for that now. the dealers don't tell you that the fix for the recall is available you have to ask them. My dealer told me that the fix has been available since July 2014 even though I took my car in for service in September 2014 Taking it in tomorrow for the fix.
So if I have read this correctly, I can purchase 2 new IKT 4 button keys (part #BB5Z-19G364-A ) from the OP Jason, and then use my 2 original OEM keys to program the new 4 button keys myself without having to go into a dealer for them to do anything? I have a 2014 XLT so it should already be equipped with the other necessary stuff for remote start.
Ta-da I am done....correct?
Dang!....I was trying to avoid those thieves.
Thanks for your help and knowledge.
There's only one dealer here and they don't seem to be very familiar with how to do these things. I've been waiting on a price from them for remote start and some other accessories from when I purchased the vehicle in September 2014.
I'll probably just buy what I need from you and then go in and get them to do their part, which I hope is as least as possible.
