Aftermarket Remote Start??
 
I did a Forum Search and found some things on "Remote Start" but nothing on "FLASHLOGIC" aftermarket system. Has anyone here installed this kit and/or had any experience with it? It's less expensive that dealer installed OEM system and no keys to reprogram.

Flashlogic - FLRSCH5

Thanks!!

Read closer. You have to have power door locks to make this work. Hit lock X3. If you decide to do it post up the details.

This is the system a local installer is recommending to me. Along with the FLRF2 2-way range extender. Think I'm going to give it a try.

JDAALLEN 10-16-2013 11:08 PM

Had the Flashlogic system installed today. So far so good. Works really well and didn't have to even mess with key fab programming issues like those doing the OEM install. I'm very pleased. I did not have the range extender installed. Will wait and see if I even need it.

burton09 10-17-2013 02:11 AM

I was told there is no splicing into wires with this. Do you know if that is true?

Yes, it is a plug & play system. The module comes with a harness that plugs directly into the OEM harness somewhere.

This was an option I wanted but the vehicle I bought didnt have it. Does anyone know home much it is to have the dealer install the OEM version?

Here is the part: Jeep Wrangler 4-Door Remote Start 2013 (Part No: 82213625): MoparOnlineParts.com My dealer said 3 hour install @ $95 an hour.
Search these forums for more on this. There seem to be a few problems with dealers getting the keys reprogramed with the OEM system.

The FLASHLOGIC kit I used didnt need any key reprogramming. It uses your existing factory keys as is. Also, you don't need Power Door Locks with the FLASHLOGIC system.

Thanks for the info. How good is the range using the key remote? My keyless entry range is terrible, only about 30 feet. I ordered the 2 way range extender and the installer is getting the remote starter. Hope to have it done next week.

I haven't messed with it much yet to see. I just got the registration papers today in mail so I can get license plates tomorrow and start driving (I purchased the Jeep online and had trouble getting the title work). The installer at Car Toys said I will probably end up wanting the range extender so must be a popular add on.

burton09 10-30-2013 11:13 PM

Got mine installed today. Like the 2 way remote. Confirmation of start, lock or unlock. The remote even chimes when a door is opened. Cheaper than OEM, only about $330 installed. Will test the range when leaving work tomorrow.

I have the Viper smart start system in my TJ. It was a pretty involved install but I'm really happy with the results. I paired that with their 5901 system and a proximity sensor (I only have a soft top). I like the peace of mind knowing that I'll get a text message/alert if anyone messes with the Jeep, no matter where I am or how far away from the Jeep I am. But as I said, a plug and play system would have been nice!

here this will help alot of you
ok so my past job was an installer for car electronics so when i bought my 2011 jk it had to have the best remote start security system i could get. well mean-less to say i could still get a discount which made it worth it. i bought a viper 5904v for the mane system to get past the transponder issue (chip In key) you need a bypass module (only bypasses it during remote start no need to worry about theft). i used a xpresskit DBALL made by DEI same Company that makes Viper. i also bought a CHTHD2 also made by DEI this is a t harness that plugs in between the transponder making it one of the easiest remote starts i have done. you plug the dball into the 5904v (R/S Brain) you then unplug harness From the transponder and plug the t-harness in between. their are only 4 wires in the jk that you have to hook to. 1 door trigger (makes it so it shuts off the radio if u shut the remote start down without getting in (not needed but recommended as the jeep will shut the radio off after like 10 minutes any way). two parking light wires you will have to diode isolate the wires but google will tell you how to do this ( also not needed up to you if you want the parking lights on when remote started). then just power which this vehicle doesn't have a high amp constant wire in the car so i went straight to the battery. This can be done on any JK with any DEI remote starter all u need is a Dball, CHTHD2 any DEI remote start (viper, Python, Cliford) and a little time. I can put up diagrams if people need them

I also put some other optional parts in mine a proximity sensor makes the alarm go off when someone gets too close (just Plugs in) made by dei part number 508D
I also put in a window control module also made by dei model 530t (very hard to find)makes it so you can roll windows up and down from remote. They also have a 529t this only rolls them up or down these are hard wired into the car so not as easy to install but a cool feature non the less

So, how was the install? Could you install the 530t at the switch panel, or did you have to go to each harness going to the door? I was wondering if the canbus or TIPM (whatever the window signals go through) would affect the resistance that the 530t would see if you installed it at the switch.

burton09 11-02-2013 01:16 AM

Have had the FLRSCH5 with the 2 way add on for a couple days and it works great. Tested at well over 100 yards and no problems.

bshown 11-02-2013 02:15 AM

I've installed a Flashlogic FLCAN in my 14 JKU using the RS firmware to remote start using the factory keyfobs. Works great! I got the FLCAN cause it was only 5 or 6 wires to to connect using ttaps or scotchlocks. No wire cutting and saved me a few bucks over the plug and play kit. I install a lot of Flashlogic stuff in Toyotas and they've always worked great with no problems and excellent reliability. I do think I'm going to add a two way remote to increase my range. I wish my Jeep had a smart key push button start setup so I could only carry a fob in my pocket lol.

redrockman 11-04-2013 09:24 PM

Just had my remote start installed in y 2013 2 door black JK at my local dealer today. They said 1.5 hrs and it took them 3.05 hrs. It is the OEM model with two new remotes with the remote start button on them I then had them reprogram my other two key fobs to match the new programed jeep TCM. A perfect install and is warrantied as new all for 342.00. I couldn't find anywhere cheaper and to keep the OEM equipment is a plus.

EddyDunn 11-13-2013 01:22 PM

Does the FLRSCH5 work with Tipstart? It says it works with the 2013 Wrangler, but is listed as non-tipstart models.
Also, did you need the loader usb cable to flash the firmware onto the product?

My FLRSCH5 is working fine and from what I understand, all automatics have TipStart. Car Toys installed my unit so not sure if they use the USB cable or not. The "kit" comes with a USB cable so I would assume it's needed.

JK LOL 11-14-2013 09:57 AM

Now THIS is something I can chime in on! Folks, there is no real need to go OEM unless installed at assembly. The Flashlogic unit OR part# DBALL with CHTHD2 t-harness are both VERY easy to install.

I put the DBALL and CHTHD2 in my JK last weekend and it took literally about 12 minutes. Now - I will say that you have to have the DBALL "flashed" on a computer. If you don't have the capability to do this - then support your local independent retailer/installer. But once that is done, it's LITERALLY a matter of unscrewing the 3 screws on the bottom of the steering column cover (just need a long handled torx 15); unplugging the key harness; plugging in the t-harness and DBALL; turning the key on; pushing a button on the key fob; then zip-tieing the module up under the dash. Put the 3 screws back in, and you're done. No joke. Granted - I did not hook up the hood pin or parking lights... nor did I add an RF kit (my Jeep sits about 20 feet from me here at work). But the install was super easy and fast. If you don't know what a Torx 15 bit is, and you don't know about flashing modules - then no, this isn't for you. But for those of you that DO - go for it!

polishdevil 11-14-2013 11:26 AM

Can the flash be done at home or is it something that only the retailer can do?

JK LOL 11-15-2013 03:26 PM

It can be done at home IF you have a flash cable. THATS where the help of a retailer might be needed.

polishdevil 11-17-2013 08:45 PM

Is the flash cable included?

zachhll 02-18-2014 04:59 PM

sorry forgot about this tread yes you can install the 530t at switch no need to go to doors. the flash cable is not included and is hard to find i have one cause i was an installer but most likely it will be easier to just go to one of the shops and have them program it.

BigBlu 03-04-2014 08:17 AM

I just installed the Flrsch5 yesterday. It took all of 15min. It was completely plug and play. There are 3 options on hard wiring available for the kit but it's not necessary for the remote start to work.

Option 1 parking lights (puts the parking lights on when the unit has the car running
Option 2 drivers door pin ( this provides a turn off signal to the radio if you left the remote start time out)
Option 3 hood Pin ( safety feature does not allow the remote to start the car with the hood open)

I will be wiring in option 1 and 2 and not the hood pin.

If anyone is interested I found a place where you can get these units for $69.00 + shipping. You have to be outside the Arkansas / Oklahoma area.
Audiovox FLRSCH5 Flashlogic Chrysler Remote Start Bypass with T Harness
You have to call them to order and they don't post prices on their site but that's the price.

BigBlu 03-19-2014 01:57 PM

After using the flrsch5 for a few weeks I can tell you I am disappointed in 2 areas of the Flrsch5 remote start. First is the limited range of the factory remote which is not flashlogics fault. 30' is all I'm getting and it annoys me. 2nd is I am tired of pushing lock 3 times in a row. Each time I press lock the horn beeps. I love having a remote start but I knew I needed to address these areas.

Enter the Flrf1 range extender kit. It increases range up to a 1/4 mile. The kit comes with 2 mini remotes, an antenna and some wiring. It's a Simple 2 wire install. Just wire constant 12v and ground. I ran a wire to the batt and I used the ground at the drivers door.

Press the button on the mini remote 2 times for start and hold the button for 3 seconds it shuts the car off.

I now have increased range, turn on/off ability and the horn doesn't beep when I start the car so no angry neighbors.

I bought this kit from the same dealer in my earlier post.

They charge $42 for the kit and it's worth every penny.
Here are some pic of my install.
This pic makes the remote look Huge but it's like the size of a postal stamp.
