Looking to get remote start on my 2008 Silverado

Remote start with AP8 build code WITHOUT remote from dealer

Postby Impact1223 [OP] » Feb 19 2018, 6:20pm

I have a 2008 Silverado Z71 5.3l that has the AP8 build code on the sticker in the glove box. I went to a dealer and they said the truck DID NOT come with the remote start key fob originally.

I have the fobs for it now (a buddy had extra) and I reprogrammed them and the unlock/lock works fine, but still no remote start.

The dealer I went to said I may need to do something aftermarket....is he right or is he just full of it?

If the truck can do remote start you will need BCM reprogrammed. Dealership should be able to tell you if possible. Usually runs around 300 for it but maybe cheaper since you have key fobs already

How do I know if it can or not? I thought that that's what the AP8 code was for?
