I am looking at a factory remote start unit for my 2010 limited, and I have a couple of questions: (o.k. more like a few)
I see they have two units available for the 2010, the AG1Z-19G364-A Bi-directional unit, and the AL2Z-19G364-A unit.
I have downloaded and read the manual for both, but it seemed to leave a lot of open questions, so I am looking for first hand experience.
- Does anyone have experience with either of these?
- I am looking at the bi-directional unit, but is it worth the extra $60?
I am looking to install this myself and have some technical questions:
- If I get the part number listed above does it include all the necessary parts, or will I need a bypass module or some other critical component? (barring the misc relay, wire or such)
- How hard is the install, Is it 90% plug and play, or is like an aftermarket unit where you are cutting into everything?
I have personally installed remote start units on at least a dozen vehicles for myself and friends, and have always used after market units, but at this point I am looking for compatibility, factory support and ease of install. I am getting a bit too old to spend the weekend under the dash and bent over fenderů
I can get them directly from my dealer, $312 for the Bi-directional unit and $257 for the other one. I would appreciate any recommendations for other sources, as I would like to save a few bucks, but I am not willing to risk it on a fly-by-night discount internet site I have no experience with.
I want to pull the trigger in the next couple of weeks as it is starting to get quite hot around here and I really miss my remote start.
Any answers, tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
(the less time I spend on this project the more I can dedicate to getting my sill plates working with my ambient lights )
Thanks in advance,
