    I just purchased a 2010 1500 Silverado with the LT trim and 5.3L this past summer.
    Previous to this i had an 07(same style) LT, that before pick up i had the factorm/gm remote start installed, i would like to do this with my new truck but am not having any luck from the dealers in my area(just moved from another province), one never heard of it happening if it doesn't have it when it arrives from the factory, and the other is pushing an ftermarket system that i am not interested in.
    So what i am wondering here is if all these trucks are pre wired/programed for the factory key fob remote start where by finding a remote start fob and programing it to the truck is all that is needed, or are there truck side additions needed as well?

    Second thing is that it has been getting real cold here at night and after a quick look under the hood i didn't see a block heater plug.....the truck is a canadian model, and albeit i never asked if it had it prior to purchase, im wondering what the build/option code is for block heater, and if they all have it, where is it tucked away too?

    thansk in advanced

    - If I am not mistaken, a key fob with remote start can be programmed (the vehicle might need programming too) to the vehicle. The factory system uses the remote control dor lock reciever for lock, unlock and panic. With remote start, it just sends a signal to the body module, checks if certain requirements are met and will start the vehicle.

    - Option code for the block heater should be K05. Codes can be found in the glovebox.

    I did notice there is a Remote Start option that ships with certain LT 's so the factory Remote start can be used - reprogram key fobs. If it does not have this option- may be bundled with "steering wheel controls" you have to add aftermarket.

    So i looked up part numbers for the remote start and got prices from 3 dealers just 20km's apart
    they cameout as:
    GM Part #
    17801236, 1 way remote start
    Dealer 1 $139.20 + install = $305
    Dealer 2 $177 + Install = $333.35
    Dealer 3 $168.66 + Install = $361.60

    How can these three be so far appart on the price and on the install price when it is on a GM factory option, shouldn't this be regulated?

    Get me the last 8 of your VIN and I'll look it up and see what it has on it from the factory.

    go with the 17801236 its just like the factory remote start system and will work on your vehicle i am at a gm dealer in MD our accessorie website shows part 214.50 and totaL with install 322.50 the prices are not regulated all dealers have a list price and then an adjusted list price if your a contractor try and set up a wholesale account and see if you can get it at wholesale pricing also depends on the hourly labor rate we charge 1 hour too program system and we are 108.00 hr

    SQUIRES..................You truck must have the RPO code AP-8.
    That is the GM factory remote start prep. code so you can add one of
    the GM remote start kits.

    I don't see it on the list above but check the RPO list in your glove box
    for it. If not then you gotta go for a aftermarket unit.

    Yeah i found from a fre people that the ap8 code is what is needed for the factory start option, and although it is not on the above list, it is in the glove box, and the truck does have the "long range remote entry"
    Im just sour i guess as in my home town when i got my 07 the dealer did it for nothing i just paid cash before i picked it up for the start fobs and they had it set up before i drove off the lot, and here in the Quinte West area of Ontario the dealers hant to charge hours worth of labor and arbitrary amounts for the same part, two of the dealers are right across the street from one another, 1 is gmc the other chev
    anyway thatks for all the info guys
