CAUTION!!!!

This is NOT a remote start unit! It's the additional unit needed if your vehicle has transponder keys. This will bypass the anti-theft transponder function when using the remote start feature.


You still need a compatible remote starte unit. This alone will NOT work.

I forgot to mention:

With this bypass module, you need to have your spare key inside this box. That's the only way for the module to get the anti-theft transponder code.

no prob. I feel guilty for posting that stuff but in the end, I'm happy to try and prevent some problems for both you and the buyer if you both think it's a remote starter unit.

I can see it now:

You: But the guy I bought it from said it was a BRAND NEW REMOTE STARTER!!!

Buyer: Well dude, IT'S NOT WORKING!!! @^&%^&


Then BOTH of you would be ticked off at each other for a simple misunderstanding. (unfortunate, I've seen it happen on another site. BOTH members were permanantly banned.)

no worries...I was told I needed this for my remote start/alarm install when I wanted to get it installed on an 07 Toyota Highlander I had. I think my wife has the same box in her 07 Camry too. Were both running Viper 791xv alarms...its an oldie but a goodie. So in order to have a remote start function, you need an alarm, the remote start module and this bypass kit right?

Not neccessarily. You don't even need an alarm. But a remote start module is needed along with this bypass kit. Unfortunately, I do not know if this bypass kit will work with EVERY vehcile manufacturer or just Fords. I imagine it's most vehicles though, but I'm not 100% sure.

I have the same one too. It DOES require a spare key to be put inside. When I purchased my Ranger, the wholesaler only gave me one key. After I paid $50 at the dealership to program the $10 key I got on ebay, I found that dandy box with the spare key inside.

I WAS PISSED! lol I could have saved myself $50 by programming the PATS system myself if I knew it was there. Oh well... live and learn. lol

From my research 5 months ago, there IS a module that doesn't require a spare key... but I don't remember the model number and I couldn't find it last night.

Either way, this module is cheaper anyway.... even if you want to pay $10 on eBay for a spare chipped key. The other module I think was around $100. YIKES
