Who has...

Remote start on their truck? I'm most worried about letting the plugs warm up. Is this an issue, I know you can set it for 1 or 2 minutes I believe, but anyone had an problems?

When I was looking for trucks on of them had remote start on it. There was a delay set on it for 30 seconds so the glow plugs and injectors had time to do their thing. As long as it has a delay before starting it should be fine.

There were a few guys on here that have some nice setups. They have a built in delay that let's the glow plugs warm up then starts the motor. They said it works great. I need to find ya that thread.

I've got it on mine and it works just fine. It has a 30 sec delay for the glow plugs. Once started, the truck will run for 12min (I think, I've never timed it). Once you get in, you have to put the key in the ignition or the truck will die when you touch the brake pedal. Good feature, but makes you look dumb when you kill it.

cool Duck- what model do ya have?

I had a viper system in my suburban and that's why I'm looking into it again, it's a GREAT feature and even better when we NEED to warm up the diesel in the winter. Especially my NJ winters that have the nasty cold off the ocean sometimes.

I forget the name, but I had one on my 05 F350. Worked great. Have it installed, they are a b!tch. It was an Avatal system by Directed Electronics. I have sold them and had no problems.

I just installed mine last week. Got it for 40 bucks off ebay, and since our trucks dont have the security key it was a real easy install. DustinDiesel gave me some instructions for our trucks and it was a fairly painless install. My starter has a wire for a glowplug function, doesnt start till wait to start light is out, but I just set it up with a 15 sec delay, I sat in it on a really cold morning and light was on for only 9 seconds. Heres the info Dustin gave me...

here is some of what i used along with the instructions that come with it.....
************************************************** ********
First obviously you will need to remove the lower dash piece. Piece of cake. Take a coin and twist the four screws to
relase the dash piece.

There are four 10mm bolts holding the fuse box to the dash. pull the fuse box down to
expose the wiring plugs behind it and you will now have access to the ignition wires and
parking light that plug into the fuse box.

There is a large plug in the center of the fuse box with very large wires in it. In this harness you will find:

Yellow - 12 Volt Constant.
Red with Green Stripe - Ignition ************FUSE BOX OR SM WIRE COMMING OUT OFF SENSOR ON STERR COLUMN???
Gray with Yellow Stripe - Heater 1
Red with Black Stripe Heater 2

Just to the right of that plug you will find another plug you will connect to these two wires.

Green - Starter Wire (large gauge wire)
Brown - Parking light

If you have a horn connection on your unit you will find the horn wire in a six pin plug just right of the steering column.


Horn - Blue

Typically I ground my unit to the large black ground wire that is to the right of the stering column. You can't miss it.
There are about 3 to 4 of them there.

Your brake wire can be found right at the brake switch.

Brake - Green

Your tach wire signal is quite easy on these trucks. You will find your tach wire taped to the large harness that comes
through the firewall. Just behind where the fuse box is. There are quite a few wires that are taped off and are taped to
the main harness. In this bundle of wires you will find a green with white stripe wire with a rubber cap on the end of it.
This is your tach wire!

Tach - Green with white stripe

You will find your door locks in the drivers kick panel. These wires are running down the kick panel and across the floor.
Strip the harness open and you will find a Pink with Yellow strip wire and a Pink with Green stripe wire. Depending on the
vehicle having keyless entry already the wire sizes will be different. If the wires are a large gauge wire then the vehicle
has no keyless and will require to be wired up 5 wire. If the vehicle has keyless already then the wires will be small and
you will only have to hook them up as a negative system.

Lock - Pink with yellow stripe
Unlock - Pink with green stripe

If the vehicle has keyless already you will need to set the locks up for negative.
Basically a ground pulse to the lock and unlock wires will make them work.



The last connection you will need is your dome light connection. This is a black with
blue stripe wire

Dome Light - Black with blue stripe

Dome Supervision - Black/Blue (+) @ door sill near center of drivers seat (small harness
that comes from the rear and curves under the seat.

Door Trigger - See above
************************************************** ********
here is another one..some different than above...


2004 Ford F-250 Superduty

Constant - Yellow (+) @ Ignition Switch

Ignition 1 - White/Yellow (Diesel) or Red/Green (Gas) (+) @ Ignition Switch

Accessory - Red/Black (+) @ Ignition Switch

Accessory 2 - Gray/Yellow (+) @ Ignition Switch

Starter - Dark Green (+) @ Ignition Switch

Tach - Green/White - Located behind the fusebox taped to the outside of a harness with a
couple other loose wires. They all have heatshrink on the tips.

Horn - Blue (-) @ Plug to the right of the steering column

Park Lights - Brown (+) @ Driver kick panel / door sill

Brake - Light Green @ Brake switch OR harness @ door sill near center of drivers seat
(small harness that comes from the rear and curves under the seat.

Dome Supervision - Black/Blue (+) @ door sill near center of drivers seat (small harness
that comes from the rear and curves under the seat.

Door Trigger - See above

Lock - Pink/Yellow or White/Red - @ Drivers kick panel / door sill

Unlock- Pink/Green or Black/White @ Drivers kick panel / door sill

good luck my man..you dont need all of this info buts its good to have and what u need is there...its really not bad to do
