Ok, I have had a very long and frustrated day. I need some help confirming what my dealers "friend" told me.
First of all, I wen't into my dealers service department today to have a Ford aftermarket security system installed on my current 13' Mustang.
This is the alarm - Vehicle Security System - Alarm | The Official Site for Ford Custom Accessories
The dealer told me that he could not get to it today, and I said I am leaving tomorrow, so is there any way he can do it. He sent me across the street to an aftermarket shop that they normally send their overflows too.
I arrived, and the guy told me he could install it, but it would not work with my remote start system that I got with my Mustang. The remote start I have came with my mustang, which I ordered for an additional $300 when buying my mustang.
So, when installing the security system, he took out my remote start. Not only did he take it out, but he charged me an additional $40 to have it removed, so my security system that I wanted would work.
My question is, is that true that the Ford aftermarket security system (posted above) will not work with a Ford factory remote start? I think that is absolutely ridiculous, and he even had the audacity to charge me an extra $40 on top of the install fee for the security system to remove my remote start.
So, after a $300 fee for the security system, and the install, I have this remote start, a bundle of wires with a black box just sitting next to me doing nothing that cost me an initial $300 to put in my car.
Is this correct? Should they work together? Has anyone else had this problem? Can I sell the remote start on ebay or craigs list?
