ok, so where did you get it done?
x2. Would love to have remote start with the factory key fob.heffneil said:JBS makes a T harness but it doesn't look like they have one for the Armada / Titans. I wouldn't attempt this install without it. I want contact bulldog to see if they have one or will make one. Anyone know of a remote starter with the a T harness or plug in wiring kit that doesn't require the mutilation of my factor wiring?
Can you tell us exactly what brand and model number you ended up getting so I can print this thread and give it to our local guy. I called and stopped by 3 different installers and they all say I'm going to lose the valet key.gksmith said:Hurray!! I got my remote starter and didn't lose a key. It just took finding an outfit that knew about bypasses and what works and what doesn't.
I did end up with new key FOBs which is fine by me. They even kept the window down feature and added a window up feature for me. Now I can open and close the front windows remotely.
The place even installed some other parts for me for free. I guess since it didn't add any more time to the install they didn't feel the need to charge me.
I guess JBS is out of the picture for me.tnsxsear said:x2. Would love to have remote start with the factory key fob.
You should always stick to good installers. The titan needs the CAN-SL2 bypass module. This will bypass the ignition without the use of a key and operate many other functions through the OBDII. There is nothing wrong with installing a remote start in newer cars. Things have actually only gotten easier over the years.CMBTITAN6 said:Word to the wise.............don't do it! I have seen many problems with remote starts on newer model cars. Just had one the other day, car stalls while driving, found that remote stater was wired into main harness causing a voltage drop in the gas pedal circ. which put the car into fail safe. Unless you know of someone who can wire one up correctly, I would not advise it.
DEI, Autopage and Crimestopper are all good options but there are plenty others to chose from. The Hornet 564T is what I usually install and is the most bang for the buck. What you go with depends on the features you are looking for;Two-way, LED remote, LCD remote and so on. You will need to add a relay to operate the second starter wire on the Titan. All of the wires are very easy to get to.captainr0ck said:so if i order the can sl2 bypass module, what remote starter would you recommend to use with it? whats obdII? thanks, new to the forum.
captainr0ck said:what do you think of the dei (viper, python, clifford) responder LE? it seems like it has everything including a bypass module. just a little pricey.
They are nice alarms but DEI has a lot of problems with their bypass modules. The bypass plug is neat but its not like wiring an external module is a lot of work. I like the LE but they are overpriced.captainr0ck said:what do you think of the dei (viper, python, clifford) responder LE? it seems like it has everything including a bypass module. just a little pricey.
Yes it will work. did it my self on my 08 titan and on two 07 armadas. Works great with the stock fob as long as you don't need a half mile range. only downfall is you loose a key. overall install was not bad at all.gksmith said:Just got my truck and I need to add a remote starter. I just want to verify that the Valet 561T and 556U will work on the 2008 with the factory security system and keyfobs.
