Adding factory remote start?

Post by Sporktek » Sat Mar 17, 2018 5:23 pm

Has anyone here done this? I don't like hokey "bypass" third-party addons if there's an OEM solution that will work. I have run across listings like this:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/BRAND-NEW-OEM- ... ro&vxp=mtr

Feasible? Any complicating factors? I have encountered some that come with more stuff, like the remotes, wiring, antennas, etc, but I don't see one I can directly reference right now. Would this, and obviously a remote with the appropriate button, be all that I would need to retrofit OEM remote start into a Taurus X that lacks it, or are there more things that my vehicle doesn't have?

Yes you can add a factory Ford one like the one you found on Ebay
