I have a 1995 F-250 wAuto Trans & 4WD. I was thinking about treating
my wife this Christmas to one of those:
"remote" ignition add ons. Where she can start the pickup in our
driveway from right outside the back door of our house.
Anybody have any:
I saw one "kit" advertised for about $80.
Talked to one fellow, installed one on another vehicle... said he
wouldn't do it again.
Thanks in advance

most auto detailing shops, and radio install shops install these units. i had

There are lots of different brands here http://www.directed.com , all
manufactured by Directed of course. They also list some with outputs for
heater controls, don't know how they work. This site also lets you
download brochures. I had a Clifford Matrix security system with remote
start, window and sun roof controls installed by the Car Audio store that
did my competition stereo install. Extremely long range, across a Mall
parking lot, of course that depends on interference etc. Mine has a two
radial horizontal antenna on the windshield behind the mirror. Don't even
notice it's there.
The devices are relatively cheap, it is the installation that
gets complicated and costly, particularly with PATS. I have had
remotes on all of my vehicles from many years. both dealer
installed and after market. I prefer the dealer installed since
the original warranty covers the system. From what I've read GM
and Ford will offer factory units for some 2004 models
