I had a local stereo/alarm shop install a Compustar system on my 2013. So far it has worked perfectly. Once in awhile the little security light on the right side of the dash will be on when I get in. I just touch the brake, Jeep dies and I restart with the key. Happens maybe 10% of the time..
Best part it was only $285. installed. I work at a Power Plant, and before I head to the locker room I look out the window 500' away and I start my Jeep. 10 minutes later I am headed out to a warm or cool Jeep. I also park in a garage, in the morning I just raise the door and push the magic button. Time I pack my lunch and pour a cup of coffee the Jeep is ready to go..

|Jeep45||Just purchased an after-market Compustar remote start from local retailer. So far...fail, system sets off panic alarm, as well overheat and low tire warning lights intermittently display. The seems to require a call to the manufacturer in AK, more to come!|

Looks like the Mopar part number for the 2013's is finally available. Not sure what's different than the 2011-12 part, but whatever it is, it's apparently worth $2 more. Dealer's got mine on order!

|805lraquino74||My JKU came with remote start and I thought it was funny at first and I would have never paid to have it installed, but im glad I have it now. Used it a couple times in the morning to defrost windows. Now its just part of my morning. Cant wait to use it in the summer. No more waitting for a/c to kick in.|

|azjosho||Thanks guys. Just ordered a new Sport S Unlimited from the dealer and they are going to install it for me before I pick it up. It's the one thing I really wish we had on our current car. Definitely a first world problem, but it sucks running outside to start the car 10 minutes before I leave for work in the winter.|

You have to have the convenience group
(Power Convenience Group $ 795
Auto Dimming Mirror with Reading Lamp
Power Heated Mirrors
Power Windows with Front One-Touch-
Power Door Locks
Remote Keyless Entry
Security Alarm )
and the auto transmission.

The remote start is not an available add-on from the factory for the Unlimited Sport as far as I can tell. Can anyone tell me if any of these kits will work with the Sport model?

|ohioviper||Its the same kit for 2011-2013.|
|10-19-2012 05:47 AM|
|jwilson2598||Pretty sure I've seen a couple people install the kit in a 13 with no problem.|
|10-19-2012 12:57 AM|
|jdambm||will this work on a 13? I had heard it was not available yet.|

Notice I say REDUCED, because there is no 100% way to prevent someone leaving it in gear and it starting... which is a problem... one that most installers don't want to deal with.
If I had an auto, I'd get the factory kit. Maybe a bit more, but it's always way easier, and down the road when it stops working, aftermarket units are a pain. They have to chop and splice, and that's a recipe for problems.

I have the factory remote start on my 2013 JKR. Didn't want it, but the Jeep had all of the other options I wanted (4.10 rear, etc) so I bought it...and now I use it all of the time...just because I can.
I scared the hell out of some people hanging out by my Jeep the other day in a parking lot. One actually jumped. Wife and I tried hard not to laugh. Money well spent.

|spiegljb||i wish i had an automatic|
|10-18-2012 10:39 PM|
|truthiness||what about range on the OEM remote. I've heard it's only 600', where some of the other aftermarket starters are 1/4 mile.|

|ltsrapcon||Have the factory installed remote starter on my 2012 JKU and I love it. Hot days, cold mornings. Its great.|
|10-18-2012 09:30 PM|
|unionthug||I contacted the Jeep dealership here and was quoted $225 for parts and $550 labor for a 2007 Unlimited Sahara seems a bit much. I have dealt with Steve White and love the way they've treat me. But on their site my year is not covered|
|10-18-2012 05:38 PM|
|steed77||Yep that OEM kit works fantastic|
|10-18-2012 05:32 PM|
The kit I got off Ebay is an OEM Jeep/ Chrysler kit that includes 2 new keys with the remote start button that the dealer will cut and program when they do the install .It is exact same one they put in at the factory.

^That is good.
MOPAR 82209982AH - MOPAR® Remote Start Installation Kit for 07-10 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK with Automatic Transmission - Quadratec
When you look at the pictures from your kit, and from the Quadratec kit, the "pictures" are of the same red jeep....but one hand has a key fob, while the other hand has an actual key.
The pic of the actual package includes two key fobs, not keys.
Moral of the story? Triple check what you are getting.

2011 2012 Jeep Wrangler Remote Start by Mopar | eBay
$221 to my door. Dealer charged $230+tax to install including cutting/programming the new keys.
They had it shopped and it showed up in 3 days. And they're an actual CJD dealership, so as long as it's installed at a dealership, it has the warranty attached. My dealership wanted to see the "dealership receipt", so I chatted with them on eBay first to ensure they would send one. They did, no questions asked. My dealer was happy and was surprised at how much money I saved. (My dealer wanted $243+tax for the kit... I saved about $42 going online.)
No extra fob or anything, and still way cheaper than aftermarket options while still having factory warranty covering it. All good things IMO.
