Red face Remote Starter

I'm looking to put in a remote starter but am concerned that I might need a special type due to the glow plug delay light havng to go off before cranking the engine. I'd appreciate any advise from anyone that has installed an after market remote starter for their 6.4. Thanks

Diesels have specific remote starters just for the glow plug cycle. Any reputable remote starter outfit will have a diesel setup.

Lets just say not quite stock.

I have the FORD starter/alarm in mine, a little expensive but it was included. Works well and if anything to do with the install goes wrong they installed it so warranty is still good. I think it would have been around $700 +/-

Go to caralarmpro.com. They carry a few different brands including Code Alarm. They then make VEHICLE SPECIFIC install directions. And instead of splicing, you use T-tap connectors. Don't get professionally installed, unless you want to waste a lot of money. Supposedly they tell you what wires to tap into and where they are.

I have Code Alarm on both trucks. Expensive, but they work very well. If I had to do it over again, and wanted to get something a little less expensive, I think I would get a Clifford. Something like the Matrix 50.7X, or the Matrix 50.5X.

I just had the code alarm and auto start put in my truck for $350. Works great. He also hooked up the trunk release that i cant use to my train horn button so i can sound it off remotely. If you live near or in Ma. pm me and i can set you up if you want it done.

I have a Code Alarm SRT-9000 in my truck and I love it... have it hooked up to the glow plugs. Had to install a relay to get it to work properly, but all is well.

I hate T-tap connectors with a passion. :

I have a Viper on mine. If you take it to a reputable shop, they'll know what you need.

I got a viper... make sure they set the crank time enough so the thing starts! I am going to have to take mine back because the way its programmed now it doesnt crank long enough to start when its cold...
