Has anyone added a factory remote starter kit to a 07.5-10 LMM? I have an 07.5 LMM LT and want remote start but to keep the factory remote. Anyone got any ideas?

Any info you would like to share? I could probably do it on my own. Just need to know where I could get a kit from.

The G.M.dealer can do it. I had mine done after I bought it. Uses proper gm remote control for locks etc.It's not really expensive either.

But the factory remote only runs 10 min then shuts off unless you press restart. Even then it only runs 20 min max. then you have to put the key in it. Not a great range either.

But it is nice to have it from the factory.

I asked the dealer about adding the remote start and keyless entry (mine didnt come with either :rolleyes: ) and they said I couldn't add it, because according to my VIN the truck doesn't have the right sensor or something installed? :mad:

hold the remote to your chin and you can get the length of a football field!

works with any remote

Or...... Look into Viper smart start. If you have an Iphone or BB (which is probly most people here) you can start/lock/unlock your truck from anywhere with a cell signal. Best Buy quoted me 550 out the door on my LMM. Also with this you can set the run times and leave the truck running if you make quick stops and what not. This mod is very high on my wish list... right behind a tuner.

after market are easy, follow the instructions and your golden

constant power
switched power
glow plug wire
starter wire has to be cut and each end of the cut wire goes to each end of the starter control module
parking lights
door locks

I can install one in about 4 hours but that's because I solder all my connections, butt splice everything 2 hours butt I dont recommend that route

There are some after market ones that there is not cutting or spliceing. all you do is unplug the main harness at the steering column and plug into the starter module and your done.

That' s for JUST the smart start module, assuming you already have a viper remote start. You would still have to buy the viper alarm/remote start for it to work

Negative that's w remote start and smart start. Alarm not included. Trust me I've done my research on this. Also wiring remote start is not as cut and dry as some seem to think. On, I think, '04 and newer any aftermarket remote requires a bypass module because of the antitheft systems already in place. Not to mention viper will not warranty their products unless it's installed by a certified tech I.e. Best buy.

Not looking to hijack the op question but since I have an OBS a factory based remote start is out of the question for me. Are the viper systems a quality unit and is the smart start worth it? Oh I did look into it, there is a charge to be able to use the smart start, $49 for one year and $99 for 3 years.

I've owned a lot of DEI products and have been very happy with them, if I buy an aftermarket alarm it will be a DEI Product. (IE: Python, Viper, etc..)

I just bought the Python 991 for my truck. It was $499 or higher from DEI. I got it from Amazon for $208.

Then I had to buy the bypass module XK09 from DEI. It was around $50 and they programmed it for my truck.

If anyone has the wiring diagram for a 2006 GMC - please send it to me.
