Did they use the spare key for the remote start. You know they need to put a key in there.

I could have sworn there's an old thread on here somewhere about putting a remote start in these cars. I remember vaguely that due to the security system it's near impossible to bypass for a remote start feature/installation.

I could be totally wrong, but I would have loved to get that put on my car as well and this is probably why I am remembering this from quite a while ago.

The BCM is the key, it is the brains of the car.

I had a python 990 installed in mine. Everything worked just fine but in order to remote start it I had to press the unlock button on the oem remote to disarm the factory security system. I also had to do this before I started the car everytime otherwise it would start and die. If I remember correctly lock and unlock were the only wires located at the bcm. You need to make sure they are using the remote start bypass (which requires a key) I had it in there over the winter and took it out about a month ago. Where are you having it installed at?
