Be sure to get a system that works well with passlockIII (newer GM) security. Many do not. DEI is excellent, I believe they also make the Arctic Start system too, which I have installed with success.

For the cars that have factory immobilizer circuits (chip inside of key) I do have the modules needed to bypass during the remote start function. The immobilizer still provides full protection yet the module allows the vehicle to start even though there is a factory security device in place.

I have detailed wiring location and color codes for just about all vehicles. When I provide the unit, you should have no problem installing easily.

For Dodge Rams, around 96 to 01, last generation, I have alarm and remote start systems that include plug in harnesses designed for alarm, remote start and keyless entry. These were manufactured for Mopar and are leftovers from that generation. My guys can install the complete prewire in just under one hour meeting dealership standards. These units come with factory style fuse box, wiring pre-loomed, lengthed and terminated, and plug in t harness door locks. I have about 50 left of these. They cost OSO members $125.00 including sensors, color cases in many colors, etc. They used to sell to dealers uninstalled for more than double that. Once they are gone, they are gone.

I have timers and all the rest of the good stuff from DEI in stock as well as a brand you can see at www.ultrastarters.com that are less expensive.

Email [email protected] with whatever you need.

As was said before stay away from Bulldog. Cheap units. I would stick with any of the name brand alarm companies.

The ones I install have internal relays which makes for a much neater install. Not to mention less chance of something happening.

Bypassing today's ignition systems are not that big a deal with the right bypass modules.

I have even installed several remote starts on diesels. Something most people don't know is available.

Remote start installs is about all I'll be doing from now until Christmas at my shop.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I have talked others here on OSO through such installs on more then one occasion. If you need any bypass modules I have those in stock also.

Yeah, 00 Sierra, I think is a Passlock3 also. I believe it is safe to figure if it is a new body style then it needs to be passlock3 compatible or have the external relay setup.

'00 Sierra is a Passlock 2.

I can fax anyone schematics on any vehicle they need....just PM me and tell me what you have.

I have an extensive database of wire location and color codes to facilitate the install of a remote starter. I provide this to anyone that purchases on of my remote starters to ease the install. Most cars are straight forward. If you are curious wheather yours is easy or not simply send private message.

Andy Buzz how about the price for the remote starter for an 03 F350 Diesel? I would want one to unlock the doors also. I have a remote unlock now just wanted it all on one remote.

I put a BullDog system in my 01 Dodge and it worked great without any problems.
