I miss having remote start. I am surprised that remote start is not at least an option. My 2007 Saturn Aura had factory remote start.

I contacted them to see if there was a way to get this upgrade without traveling so far...unfortunately a no-go :(



Ended up going this same route. Not a huge fan of having to give up the spare key to do the install but I guess it is what it is.
why did you have to give up the spare key? I have both keys still. they have a way to install remote and keep both keys. places around here charge $50 extra for it.

Really...do you know how they accomplished it with your Regal? The RFID of the key is necessary to start the vehicle. All of the places that I spoke to said that there is no way to bypass this. The spare key is in a RFID reader under the dash with a wire wrapping around the internal of the steering column.

I would be interested to know what they did for your vehicle.

they have a cloner for the key and it is under the dash. I not sure of how but several places here new about it but most would not offer it till I told them I would not give up the second key.

Does anyone know what the cost of this addition is?

Is there a designated location on the factory key FOB for this addition?

Will this work with the remote start functionality of the OnStar Mylink App?

Thanks! ....my Regal CXL RL1 just came in today and I take delivery in about 2 hrs! And, Sellers Buick is about 5 miles from my house.

Chris White at Bob Sellers Buick in Farmington Hills, MI setup my Regal with an OEM remote start. I provided Chris with VIN and he ordered new Buick keyfobs with remote button and laser cut keys. Keyfobs arrived in 4 days and setup took less than 1 hour. Heated seats, front and rear defrost are activated with remote start via factory settings. Chris also enabled Regal GS Performance Menu that includes: digital turbo boost, lap timer, distance timer (0-60), digital coolant temp, trans temp and battery voltage.

Did Chris White at Bob Sellers Buick also add ejector seats, pop out gun barrels, bullet shield, a 3-way revolving front license plate and oil slick ejectors?

What year do you have? I am being told that the heated seats don’t function with remote start on the later vehicles. Also they told me that the Performance Menu is part of another package that they offer and is not included in the remote start itself. What gives?

I emailed Sellers again and they said heated seats is not an option for the remote start unless you have a turbo. I will be bringing it in on Monday to see what happens. I have read on another forum that remote start might be an option next year but I am not waiting for it.

When they use the RFID from your spare key isn't it a bit of a security problem? Won't it disable your stock immobilizer or do you guys just get a remote start/alarm combo to take care of that as well?
