    so is this a better way to get a remote start than going to a audio dealer? I don't have very much electrical smarts, especially when it comes to my taco. But this remote option is something I'm interested in.

    Getting a viper 2 way remote start this week. Figured its a safe bet to have an audio dealer do it.

    So to answer your question, YES its is. I just had the viper 2 way remote start alarm installed today. They used the exact same bypass module as the one you researched. I did some price comparison with Amazon with the viper alarm and the module. I would have saved $75 in the long run. If you know how to install the alarm you might save yourself at least $200. I even saw a YouTube video on installation, but I didn't find out till after the fact.

    What do you need the cable for? Buy from an ebay dealer and they'll pre-program it for you.

    BUT, if you do it urself, add some extra diodes for the factory setting that the truck come with. The I gad my alarm installed, i noticed the that my driving lights didn't turn off when armed. AND the parking indicator "P"on the dash stayed lit up as if it the car was on and parked. I took it back and explained there problem. The installer readjusted and added some "diodes" as he explained, to have the factory settings working again with the viper alarm. Now, I love my alarm and the convenience of auto start with my factory settings in play. :thumbsup:
