Re: Expedition - Remote Start
Hey guys. I work for Factory Motor Parts here in Kansas City and am an installer for the Ford Accessory Division. I install about 6 remote start/alarms a day. In the winter season I do as many as 10 to 15. I am an ex DEI/Viper technition and have been installing car audio/video/security professionaly around the Kansas City area for 15 years.
There are many ford units available.
RKE (100K) - Standard Keyless Entry System
VSS (400K) - Add on Alarm for vehicles with keyless
RKE/VSS (600K) - Keyless Entry/Alarm for vehicles without keyless
RMT (bronze) - Add on Remote Start System for vehicles with keyless
RMT/RKE (silver) - Remote Start w/ keyless
RMT/RKE/VSS (gold) - Remote Start/Keyless/Alarm
We install the gold system for $349.74 and they drop from there on the other models.
The remote starts can do many things such as turn your headlights on, rear defrost on, remember your seat position, turn on heated seats, motorize the running boards on navigator, open the lift gate and the rear window, and much more.
The new units are modular now where basically the brain module can be popped out of the main unit and swapped out for a higher or lower unit.
