adding oem remote start

Is it possible to add OEM remote start to a terrain that was built without it? Im thinkin its possible to reprogram the BCM and program 2 new key fobs to the RCDLR to make this work, but Im just looking for more input from anyone with experience.

I'm pretty sure that GTPprix can do this. Try a search on this topic, and I'm sure you will find some discussion.

Unless you can re-program ECUs, you would probably have a difficult time. I don't think it is a "plug and play" modification.

Seems like since you are a Service Tech, then you should have no problem installing it. Can you also make modifications to the DIC screens like GTPprix has done ? He has also been able to restore the ability to roll up and down the windows from the key fob, and also disable the DRLs. If so, where are you located, and how much would you charge ?

Re: adding oem remote start

My understanding is that an after market module/ mod was available from GM for the 2010 Terrrains to add remote start. Last time I checked, it was not available for the 2011. I will ask my service man next time I see him.

Re: adding oem remote start

I had a 2008 Silverado and it was possible to add factory remote start by just going to the dealer and having them program the ECU... However, they said it was not possible to do on the Equinox or the Terrain.

Then why do you need to go to an internet forum to ask this question?

Just because Im a service tech doesnt mean I randomly go into vehicle ecus and see which ways I can program them. I'd rather ask first and know it can be done instead of blindly diving into something on a whim.

Thanks for contributing though!
