Do I have remote start?

Post by Ttaubs » Tue Jun 18, 2019 6:37 am

How would I know if my 2005 freestyle has remote start? It didn't come with a fob. The person I bought it from didn't ask original owner and he had lost the fob so they didn't know either. Is there a way to tell before I buy a new fob?

Freestyle never came with remote start. You can add aftermarket remote start. My after market has box which is antenna mounted near rearview mirror.

Any investment into an old Freestyle at this point is wasting money, IMO. A remote start would probably cost you a few hundred $$ and wouldn't add any value to the car.
If you have seen the insides of my Freestyle it is trashed thanks to my hippie college daughter but it runs like a champ!
I just recently did a tune up on it spending about $160 which included new coil on plugs.
But since I drive a new Mazda 3 and my Freestyle is 300 miles away at college it doesn't bother me what my freestyle looks like. :lol:

"A funny thing is if you're out hiking and your friend gets bit by a poisonous snake, tell him you're going for help, then go about ten feet and pretend YOU got bit by a snake. Then start an argument about who's going to get help. A lot of guys will start crying. That's why it makes you feel good when you tell them it was just a joke."
