Honestly there is a lot to installing those types of remote starts. It's not just a connect a few wires type of deal. You need to know how to use relays, resistors, and diodes to do this type of install.

Basically, if you find the directions confusing, you'd be better off letting a shop do it. I don't get into trying to walk people through a remote start install because they are very vehicle specific and require a lot of 12v electronics knowledge.

i would have to agree with Justin. if you don't know what your doing you are best to have a professional do it. they can be pretty complicated to install especially if you are not familiar with wiring or security systems. i know a lot of newer vehicles come from the factory with security systems and immobilizers as my mom found out 1 cold winter day. if you mess things up it could cause way more issues and cost you more than paying a professional to do it right the first time.

But the $400-500 also likely includes the bypass modules and everything needed to install a remote start in your specific vehicle. The more expensive the vehicle the more expensive the stuff is to install a remote start. There is more to getting a remote start than what is in the box at the store

This is correct. If you have a chip in the key you will need an immobilizer bypass which is also a tricky install. 400 dollars to install the full system is normal. That's about what we charged to install them when I did installs. In a shop with all the right tools and equipment, and with trained professionals doing it, it will still take around 3-4 hours or more.

I just finished an install (with immobilizer bypass) on my 02, and although I can't help you solve you're wiring dilemma, I will mention that unless you are absolutely positive you know how to wire and program a remote start system to your truck, I wouldn't recommend doing it. You only have one ignition harness and if you mess it up or tap into the wrong wires, you could be looking at higher costs simply to fix things. Not to mention the possibly risk of causing an electrical fire.

I'm not in any way doubting your ability to do this this though. I've just read enough horror stories from installs gone wrong and would hate to see try this and end up having issues.
