Remote start on an X?

Part #82211437AD is what the dealer told me I needed on my 2008 JK Unlimited X for remote start.

What will need to be done after I install this?

Will it have to be "flashed" by the dealer?

Enjoying life!

I'd go aftermarket if I was you. I have seen a lot of factory remote starts go bad. Just my personal opinion.

Need advice or parts without all the bs. Call Marcus at River City Offroad

Maybe you will have more luck out of it.

Factory auto start requires the electric locks I believe. The unit has to lock the doors before it starts the jeep.

I talked to the dealer and they will allow me to return the remote start. I'm not looking for a decent aftermarket remote start.
