I bought two identical remote starts from walmart just over two years ago, one for my truck and one for my wifes car,they cost $39.95 each and then looked up a MOBILE electronics person who installs stereo equipment for vehicles at your house,he charged me $75.00 each and was done in less then two hours.
My remote starts have worked flawlessly for over two years now and my wife and I use them faithfully summer and winter.
I did make one small modification to the foot long antenna hidden under the dash,I spliced into the antenna and ran a wire all the way up my door frame pillar right up to my sun visor all while hiding it under the plastic trim and just left a 1 inch piece exposed for reception by the visor, my reception is amazing now!!!!
I am not sure if walmart still carries them but here is a link
My factory keyless entry/ALARM still works fine and in conjunction with my remote start.
