I have a 2011 JK that doesn't have keyless entry. I would really like to add this and I am thinking that maybe in the process I could add remote start. I have seen a lot of kits to add remote start if you already have the stock keyless entry system. Are there any kits to add both?

I installed the remote Door lock actuators not to long after I bought the Willys, a very large pain but can be done and only requires removal of the inner door.

I used a kit like this: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XYHZWMY?psc=1

I then decided since I live in Northern Wisconsin that remote start would be nice.

I used this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01BHQ1YTQ/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

-------------------------

To use this you need one of these: https://www.amazon.com/Directed-Electronics-XpressKit-DBALL2-Databus/dp/B00H2PHSY2/ref=pd_bxgy_107_2?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B00H2PHSY2&pd_rd_r=4QT6TCQP7QSYEZPZHMGY&pd_rd_w=9FGHY&pd_rd_wg=rSRMu&psc=1&refRID=4QT6TCQP7QSYEZPZHMGY & one of these: https://www.amazon.com/XpressKit-XK...rd_wg=H3pP8&psc=1&refRID=AEQ3FSRJDQY1R23A7VJ1

Then you have to download the programming data from their website, it requires you to be a company, no free email addresses, but I found out later that I could the email I have from my isp.

--------------------------

I returned these last 2 items and got a preprogrammed DBALL2 off of eBay.

I got it here: XPRESSKIT DBALL2 DATA ALL INTERFACE MULTI MODULE DEI BYPASS MODULE Dball2 | eBay

I had a heck of a time finding a install guide. I finally found one on "the12volt.com" it's for the Viper 5305 but they are the same system. You have to become a member at the12volt to access the downloads section.

There a lot of wires on the 5305, 24 pin connector, that I didn't use, I just wrapped them in a bundle and stuffed them behind the control unit but I saw later that someone else had removed the unneeded wires.

I followed the information on page 11 for the DBALL2 installation. https://directechs.blob.core.windows.net/documents/dball-dball2-chrysler_en_ig_th20141117.pdf

I am still working on connecting the remote lock wires through the door connectors, right now they're hard wired. I've seen where people use separate connectors & even trailer connectors.

Note the 5305 only puts out "(-) 500mA UNLOCK OUTPUT & (-) 500mA LOCK OUTPUT" so I had to use relays to make the door actuators work. I used one of there relay diagrams: Door Locks - Actuators / Reverse Polarity - Negative Switch/Trigger (a) or Door Locks - Actuators / Reverse Polarity - Negative Switch/Trigger (b)

Note2: The actuator for the drivers door has 5 wires I only used 2 for the remote start install.

You can buy these instead: https://www.amazon.com/Zone-Tech-4-Pack-Universal-Actuator/dp/B01IWMEBSO/ref=pd_sbs_263_6?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B01IWMEBSO&pd_rd_r=N4G2EV21G9EXMYQ6MWGW&pd_rd_w=bWuoB&pd_rd_wg=XPZXl&psc=1&refRID=N4G2EV21G9EXMYQ6MWGW

Hope this helps
