Also, if you have OEM remote start does it turn the heat and seat heaters, or AC on depending on the cab temperature like a GM or is it just where you left it last time your drove it? GM really had their **** together on their remote start on my wifes Tahoe. it does everything when remote started depending on temperature. If this one wont I will be better off going aftermarket mainly because of the range but I know aftermarket will only have the heat/air where you left it last time in the truck. If there is a good OEM add on, does anyone know the ford part number?
The OEM remote wont do anything but Lock, Unlock & start. I replaced mine with Viper 5904. I was told its the only model to control more than one aux button. I agree the reason for remote start is cab temp control (makes it nice on hot days). The only thing is when you turn your auto temp on remotely it can not adjust it up/down ( only where you had it set last before you shot it off) .
The guy who did it for me asked me 200 bucks if I wanted to control my windows (witch I should had done , but I didnt cuz he had to get a couple of modules ?
that would go behind door panels).
Instead I got this other viper module thing (80 bucks) and another 120 bucks paid to Viper for a three year subscription, so I can use my IPhone as a remote. Pretty dumb ( used it only twice. IPhone app dosnt respond nearly as good as the remote)
