Thank you! I bought the same deal last time when you posted it. To my surprise, the installation guy put on it on my 2014 forester without any extra part or labor! He mentioned a firmware update made that possible. So I am now getting another one for my 2004 highlander, will this car need any extra part this time?

The Subarus have made big strides in the past 6 months in the remote start bypass world. Doesn't surprise me.

On the Highlander, the installer will have to perform Directed TechDoc 1070 to get your door locks to work with the keyless entry system.

Highly likely there will be extra labor charge for this and also you'll have to buy the relay in the picture (the square with the numbers). The diodes should come at no charge. Expect ~$50 part and labor.

If the Highlander has autolights, then you'll need a relay for those too. Most installers won't charge labor for that though. ~$10

Shouldn't be with the newest revision of the ALCA module (included in this bundle). Don't let the installer charge you for door lock, factory alarm or Passlock integration. Tell him/her to please pull up the diagram for the ALCA and double check before/if they try to charge you labor for that. The module in this bundle automates everything for them. No extra relays that I can think of.

Push button start? Or regular key? If you have a regular key that has an H stamped into the metal, then there hasn't been a transponder crack released for it yet. The installer will have to do it old school and bury one of your factory keys up in the dash with the remote start. There will be extra labor for this. Probably $60 and you'll have to give up a factory key.

If it's push button start, you're good to go!

Only a few minutes left of this deal ladies and gents!

I've got mine. It's pretty nice.

I haven't really been able to test the range though.

Only thing that sucks is that hitting the lock on my factory key fob 3 times to start it, disables my factory key fob. So I still have to carry around the Computstar key fob anyways.

Yeah, that's pretty common. Your vehicle is like that from the factory. Has nothing to do with the system or the installer. Try starting the car with the key and then using the factory fob. Doesn't work either. I guess the factory does that to prevent you accidently popping the trunk while driving? Because I wouldn't think the door locks would be a big deal...

EDIT: OH! I remember talking to you about your vehicle. I don't recall which vehicle it was. But I think we were talking about the trigger input wire on this? Ugh. Sorry to hear that. That's something I probably should have had you test for before the install (using the method I described above). Frown

What vehicle do you have? I might have a solution...
It's a 2014 Honda Accord.

I also can't open up the trunk when I remote start the car for some reason :/ I have to pop it open with the lever in the car.

Same reason as I mentioned above I'd imagine. As far of the car knows, that vehicle is started with the key. There's actually a superscript note about the trunk in the manual for the ALCA on the Accord.

"3
When vehicle is remote started, feature will not be functional. Use traditional hardwired installation method for feature to be functional during remote start.
"

Fine print.

It's telling you that you could always hardwire the feature in. An actuator mounted to the trunk lid powered by a relay triggered by the trunk output of the Compustar. It's something Best Buy could certainly do for you. But the parts and labor wouldn't be exactly cheap. Probably $100 total.
