Their YouTube video shows the install with good detail and I have some confidence about buying it. I just wondered if anyone here had purchased the kit and installed it themselves. i have searched for the vendor name in different configurations, but get zero threads. Hence the post...
Does anyone have any feed back about them?
Alright I hope everybody slows down on this and doesn't buy anything until they read this post.
I installed this kit :: Fortin OEM Plug & Play T-Harness Remote Start Car Start 2013-2017 Dodge RAM | eBay
I bought my kit locally, but confirmed with the above seller he includes everything needed.
I T-Tapped 3 wires that were very easy to reach, followed the instructions from online Fortin's website and got my 2013 Ram 1500 ST (non push start) remote starting within an hour.
I hit my OEM key fob lock 3 times , and my vehicle starts.
This kit has the option to add on an RF and give extended (1500-3500 foot) range but by carrying an additional fob.
I additional turned off my horn when locking the vehicle so I didn't upset my neighbors every AM remote starting.
I have 2 fobs, I programmed with one that I keep in the house, the 2nd I use and can unlock doors no issue. I have just right now started my truck with the fob I used to program it and it WILL unlock the doors.
The only part that might be tricky is to program the unit on the computer, there's tutorials on the internet to do this.
Here's the youtube video I watched a dozen times before stepping out into my car and completing the install.
There's 2 blue wires off the CHR harness, just join them with the 2 matching blue off the fortin harness. A diode isn't needed.
I want to see if there's a way I can program this so it'll act as an alarm ( I should be ) but also would like it to auto-lock the doors after 5 mins of last door being closed in the truck in case I forget to.
