    Default Remote Start

    Im looking to add a remote start option to my 93XJ. No power anything except steering.

    I want to add it because it's a quick drive to my class, but Cold as hell outside in winter. Id like to give the jeep time to warm up and get the engine going. All them short trips will fubar it. Dont want that.

    anybody got any recomendations on companys or any advice on how I should go about this? Never done one before. But I am a competent electrician so it should not be to difficult.

    Stay away from the $50 do it yourself "Bulldog" brand remote start!!

    I've installed about 8 of them, and every one had problems after a month or so. They suck! Get a decent one, wether you DIY or have it installed.

    My XJ had one installed by the PO, it was profesionally installed top end one, with 2 way feedback remote. It also is an alarm.

    Been looking for one for the wife, but I'll get that one installed.

    I'll find the info on the one in my XJ.

    Compu-star is what's in my XJ, I really like it.

    Don't know if they have a DIY kit, I only went on the site to get a copy of the programming manual.

    I appreciate that. I did a quick look, they got a dealer not to far from the navy base here. Perhaps I'll go tomorrow.
