Interested in this too, with winter coming up I might have to be the guinea pig here. I HATE a cold truck when I go to work, or on my way home.

Leave it to dodge to play with the wiring and make then come up with a new method of doing this, eh?

If you want to do the install you can get the factory remote start, which is "plug-n-play", with programming at your local dealer. If you follow the link above you can download the install manual. There are some threads with more details.

I'm looking to do this too, but the issue I'm running into in my little bit of research so far is that I have the Keyless Enter 'n Go system already, and the add on remote start seems to indicate that it's not for trucks equipped with that. I know there's got to be a way to have both since I've seen listings for trucks with both, but I may have to break down and have the dealer do it unless someone has some insight on that combo.

My understanding is that 2013 is not PnP.. Must be programmed and hard wired..

Are you saying that's not the case?

The unit he's describing is the factory add on option. The kit that isn't plug and play is an aftermarket kit that uses the key fob.

Factory one cost allot nor but it's plug and play and if buyinga new key fob it would have a start buttonvs the aftermarket kit you hit lock 3 times.

So $249 + getting the dealer to program the fobs....Does anyone know hoe much the dealer charges to program the fobs?

Agrred but doesn't the new fobs have to be programmed by the dealer to match the vehicle?
