factory remote start, standard or advanced? 2011 1500

factory remote start, standard or advanced? 2011 1500

Postby NutFarmer97 [OP] » Apr 28 2011, 7:26am

Ok, so I have now had my truck a week and a half, its a 2011 silverado 1500 LT. It already has keless entry but I was told that all I need to do to get remote start is buy the remote start keyfobs. Is this true? My second questions is should I go with the standard remotes with our the 2 way and lcd or go with the advanced remotes? Has any one done this conversion? and what is a fair price to pay for a remote from a dealer or are there other places i should be looking? I do not want to go aftermarket on such a new truck. Thanks!

I thought auto start was standard equipment on 08 and up. I have the standard fob and the range is decent... not great, but enough that I can start my truck from my cube on the 3rd floor (if I park in certain areas at work).

Remote start is not standard on all models, only crew cabs and ext cabs with LTZ or 1LZ4.


Check the option code label in the glove box for these codes;
AP3 Remote vehicle starter system
AP8 Remote vehicle starter prep package

I have both types of remotes. The 2-way is only slightly better range. And, the 2-way is annoying in your pocket, due to the size. Use the standard ones, IMO.

Has to have the remote start package already. I bargained with the dealer to program the truck and furnish the standard remotes which seem to do very well. I also kept my two remotes that were standard and they were programmed for everything but remote start. Let us know what you find out.
Thank you

SO what all do I need since my truck is only has the remote start prep package? I know I need the remote start keyfobs and to have the dealer program them for my truck, but is there anything else needed? antennas, wiring, computer moduls, ect..?

I would start here http://www.gmpartsgiant.com/oem/2010-gm ... -8664.html. The first one is the factory remote start kit for AP8 vehicles and should have all the hard parts you need. If you actually select the part number it brings you to the individual parts page and give you an option to see if it is compatable with you vehicle. Hopefully that helps.

Ok, I got the standard remote start remotes and had them programed today. So far I am very pleased with them. The dealer had to call tech support tough and re-program the computers for remote start even though the truck was AP8 remote start prep package. But thanks for the advice guys!
