    Have the dealer remove the aftermarket remote start and test and or reset the theft system. They will need every ignition key you have for the truck. Those aftermarket remote starts are #1 causes of theft lights and no starts within a few years of their installation. They are junk.

    This is absolutely correct. A lot of times it doesn't even take years for there to be an issue. The installations are usually quite intrusive to the very sensitive electrical and anti-theft systems on newer vehicles. It doesn't help that most of the installers are complete hacks who have no business even being near a vehicle with tools in their hands.

    That's crazy. We would have charged an hour anywhere I've worked. I've never personally had an issue with remote starts even though I've heard of it from everyone
