    idk how much you want to spend but on amazon they have one for $50 but it's just locks and the start. so i guess it depends on the features you want too

    we just installed this remote on our 03 Trailblazer and the install guy said he could put the same one into my Tacoma. Diffrent bypass module than the Chevy but required (extra $$). My wife loves it in her SUV. The Tacoma stays outside all the time and i'm thinking i could get use to a warm truck every morning. I was never a big fan of remote starts before. The guy works with me and has installed remotes for years. Total price was $250 installed.

    Personally I wouldn't get a remote start without two way paging capabilities. This way you know the vehicle starts without having to look at it and you know if it shuts off.

    Got a one way ( long Distance ) Compustar starter installed when i bought truck

    Unless you know what your doing , i would pay a reptiable installer to do it.

    I have had it for over a year and half and have not had one problem so far

    and have been impressed by the distance i have gotten it to work

    like from my desk at work inside a large warehouse.

    I also have remote start with 2 way paging and it was one of the best mods that I have done.
    Mine is from a company called "auto start".

    My only complaint is that in my taco I leave the head lights switched on all the time, when the ignition is off and I open the drivers door they go off.
    The problem is that with the remote start if it ever times out (after 25 mins) of if I shut it off via remote, my headlights will stay on since the drivers door is not opened.
    If I turn off the headlights like I normally would do in any other car, then everything works as normal.

    Have the same system and very happy with it. The company makes python/viper. If you shop around you should be able to get a better deal than the 500. I didn't need 2 of the 2 way pagers just wanted a basic oger for the backup so I only paid 325.

    Every car I installed alarms on, I used fortin. Very easy to install and doesn't require a spare key.

    I just installed this unit in my truck via Best Buy. Well they installed and I'm very happy so far. Paid $330 here in Michigan. Once in awhile it takes twice to start. I put it off for several years, but this winter I decided it was time.

    I used a Fortin key-override-all bypass with my Clifford alarm/rs install. The "all" model connects to a couple of wires at the transponder coil reader in the steering column instead at the ECU like the older model bypasses. This is much easier. Also uses one key to program then needs no key to operate once it has been programmed.

    Here is a link to a detailed write up of the entire installation with all the wires and locations I posted to the A/V area of TW once upon a time. Some details will differ depending on the system you install. But the wires and locations should help you out if you try to do this job yourself.

    Take it back to them and tell them to run a tach wire. If it does not start on the first time, everytime they used a voltage setting. If the wire is run to the tach it will start everytime with no chance of starter grind. They should have done it in the first place, half assed.
