Car Alarm/Remote Start...

Got screwed by an ebay guy, so now I have store credit. Is this kit any good? Anyone heard of the company?

I have the RS-720 (I think that is the model) with the LCD fob and I love it. I would have gotten the lower end regular fob autopage one for my 89 Cougar and 2000 Grand Marquis if I wouldn't have gotten the Prestige ones for them already.

i have no experience with that unit but i do have an ebay car alarm i installed in my bird. It's still working perfectly fine after 2 years and I also installed a window roll up module too.

It's great, don't have to worry about going out to the car to put the windows up when it starts raining. Just hit the button and up they go!

Nope, I installed all of them. Pretty easy if wiring/electronics is your thing, but not something I would do as my first electrical project. The remote start was the toughest, because the alarm didn't handle enough amps to do the blower motor, so I used an external relay, perhaps yours has two onboard. Depending on if you have RKE already or not changes what it required to do the door locks.

GODSPEED, I handle all of the remote starts in at work, and like Bangster said, they aren't bad if you know your wiring/electronics. I know that the ones I do are time consuming, but I like to solder all of my connections and heat shrink them, instead of using quick connectors. As far as the company goes, we only deal with either Code Alarm, or factory remote starts from Ford (ohhh the gravy that comes from the factory!) in at work.
