Mine was $1000 including fitting.

I can have remote anything you like at the moment it's under body neons, horn, headlights, auto windows up and sun roof closed, rear defrost and engine start/stop.

That is on the factorty computer with smartlock still activatde.

Now i have an aftermarket computer it was just change a wire and it continues to work.

Just perfect for hot days or freezing mornings, just remember to set the A/C or heater on before leaving the car, better still get a car with automatic climate control.

The advertisements in US audio magazines in the late 80's used to advertise remote start alarms showing snow, a car outside a window and how your car will be warm when you get in, just tells you how far Australia is behind when it comes to alarms.

You know technically a remote start alarm is illegal, you can not start and leave a cars engine running unattended, but who gives a flog, I will be doing it one day, I hate the cold!

The advertisements in US audio magazines in the late 80's used to advertise remote start alarms showing snow, a car outside a window and how your car will be warm when you get in, just tells you how far Australia is behind when it comes to alarms.

Cummins diesel engines have a similar system called ICON. While the driver is asleep in the cab the engine will start up and shut down to maintain cabin temperature. Its only available in the states. The reason we havnt caught on here yet is because WE DONT FUKIN NEED IT. When I wake up on a cold morning I simply walk out to my car, start the engine, walk back inside and have my cornflakes. Didnt cost me a cent and I didnt have to bypass the smart lock.

I do believe you have just defeated smartlock - You put your key in the vehicle and walked away from it. That's all insurance is going to care about.

Well for those of you who doubted me and were at the all ford day you would have had a chance to see the remote start working in the flesh.

Certainly caught a few people off guard.

Nice if you know your car will still be there 20mins later, even if you have a shed, I don't think you would run your car without opening the roller door etc.

Heaps of alarm functions haven't caught on here yet, and we are normally far behind with other things too, man look how long it took for automatic climate control to come here, first Aussie Ford was EA high series and it is still only a high series fitment, and you can say we are any different to needing that, Aussie cars are normally way behind the eight ball, BA was probably the biggest leap forward, but there is still many things that should be standard but aren't.


When I was living in Armidale a few years back I would have loved a remote start, f**k if I was going out to my XD in (+/-) -13C mornings to start it and run back inside to get warm again. You know it is cold when the sun heats up the shed roof, the condensation drips on your windscreen, then refreezes again.

Thats not a fair comment to say WE dont need it.

YOU might not think it's necessary and thats fine your entitled to your opinion but shouldn't speak about what others do or dont need.

EXAMPLE
The BA falcon's have a feature that turns your headlights off after a minute or so once you've left the car and locked it + a sensor to turn them on automatically when it gets dark. I'm sure people said how bloddy hard is it to turn your lights on and off when you need them and yet this feature is very populcar and prevents many flat battery's.

No one needs heaps of stuff in cars like stereos, it is possible just to sit and drive in silence, larger exhausts, sunroof's, climate control and yet these are things people add every day because they are nice to have and make life eaiser.

I'm getting a s/h ignition barrel/key. So I'm gonna see if I can wire it up so it'll fool smartlock (I'll have it hidden somewhere, and have the actual ignition circuits permanently disabled on it).

So my existing ignition barrel will retain the ignition circuits but won't be hooked up to the BEM, the new barrel will. Thus when the remote starter kicks in, the BEM will see a signal from the new lock and allow the ECU to run. Then I get in car, put my key in the original barrel, turn it to On position and drive off. The alarm will kill the engine if the brake pedal is pushed without the key in the on position, so can't drive off with it. And with the new barrel hidden and disabled, ay thief won't be able to use that barrel/key to bypass alarm.

Well at least that is the plan.
