No, absolutely not.

No — but it does actually lay the groundwork to add power locks and (I think) makes it cheaper to do so:

I got my wife this same remote start for Xmas a couple years ago. I already had it in my truck which had manual locks.

As a gift to me, she took my truck to a mechanic who added powered locks. Pretty sure it cost less than it would have because the remote start keyfob/remote was compatible (they didn't give us a separate fob). So the electronics were in place to communicate with the power locks.

I actually thought it was kind of silly / extravagant. I didn't mind the manual locks at all. But now that they're powered I actually appreciate the luxury (LULZ), especially when it's really cold or I have my hands full.

It wasn't cheap but more reasonable than I expected, I think ~$400. I know wifey had to call a few places before finding a shop that would handle it.

You don't mean keyless ignition, do you?

If you just mean will it work with power locks, yes it will.

One wrinkle to know about though. On my wife's car, the alarm will go off sometimes if the driver's door is not opened first and the car's OEM fob was used to unlock.

Oddly it doesn't happen every time. We have a toddler and regularly open the rear door first.

Slightly annoying. Putting the key in the ignition solves it, oddly pressing unlock on either fob does not.

some can, but then you will be losing out on the extended range....

Yes it includes free installation. But You won't see the free installation “ professional service” option at checkout if you are on the Best Buy App. I had to use a laptop. You might see it on a web browser.

When having work done at bestbuy be very very careful. I had this installed last time it went on sale and it was a nightmare. The bestbuy techs didn't bother to look up/ didn't know about the Nissan/Infiniti feature of being able to roll windows down with the FOB, so now every time I remote start my car the windows roll down, not a huge amount but enough for someone to stick their arm in through the windows and unlock the car, or in case of rain or cold for your car to get completely soaked, making the remote start feature almost useless if I can't use it in bad conditions to have my car started, also I was told Infiniti doesn't have a bypass feature so every time you get to your car you have to turn it off to be able to open it then turn it on again when you get In it, not to mention they DESTROYED the inside of my door when installing the starter. I'm talking they broke every cap on the door that could be broken, broke every clip that held my door panel but 1 and instead used screws to hold it in, and my speaker was put back in so bad that it was literally dangling with one screw. I work at a body shop so I always do the work on my cars and don't really let people take them apart, so when I took pictures of everything that was wrong and broken and took it up with their customer service I was told the store was responsible for repairs and that I would be reimbursed for any damages, except when I went to the store to verify this the "install manager" claimed that my car had come in like that and that he had done everything he could to fix it (which again was bullshit because I work on my own cars) I ended up having to battle it for months and had to go around bestbuy all the way up to their insurance company to get reimbursed for my damages. Overall I would never have done at a bestbuy again. This was at the Austin location on 183 and Lakeline. If you get "Nick the manager" as your install guy, run, run away quick
You need to add you are as total tech member when you post crap like that...
I installed it on my Toyota Sequoia 02 and my old RAV4 2008. Neither one will shut off when you open the door. Only when you hit the brakes

Is the installation included? I do not think it is included this time...
It is included and also t-harness. Didn't work through the app for me. I checked on the laptop and both were included.

Really recommend this, I got the one that included the drone and it's a great investment. Install time took about an hour and a half. Just remember when you use the remote start feature, make sure you insert you key to the on position as once you press the brake, the car will turn off if you don't. It's normal as it's a security feature to make sure no one takes off with your car when you remote start it. The tech will go over other functions after you go pick it up once it's installed.

Had this for about a year now on my Subaru and it works great, but definitely does some weird stuff at times as well. Like once recently, remote started it, walked up, and it was unlocked. I also did something else twice awhile back that was really odd and I almost took it back to BB, but can't remember what it did.

Same here, except it took them three hours and with keyless fob, you also have to remember to not depress brake before closing driver's door.

I had the issue that the free install only showed up for me through the webpage, not the best buy app.
So if you don't see it, load it up on the web.

Would this work on a Jeep Gladitor without automatic locks?

May I know how much you paid for the drone mobile? Looks like it is another $200?
