I am looking for info on installing a Remote Starter on a 2003 Montana. I will probably be using a ProStart unit but I want to know how complicated this installation is. I already wired my manual transmission 1999 Acura Integra  with a Prostart Remote Starter and it was pretty easy but some people are telling me that some security features on the Montana makes the installation more complicated. I would like to evaluate the complexity of the installation before I buy anything.

Wiring info and tips would be much appreciated.

After doing the manual transmission starter this one should be a breeze for you.
This vehicle is equipped with pass key 3 security and you should be able to buy a bypass (easy) from the place
that you bought it.
The easiest bypass is a pkg5 but contact ctc to see what they have. If not go to one of the 12v installers in your area
and buy one for around $40
If you can't get one contact me and I will help you.

Thanks for the info: are you saying I can get the bypass from the place I got the remote starter?

Notes:

NOTE:  This vehicle is equipped with the pass-key III immobilizer.  Use PKG4 or PKG5 are recommended bypass modules for bypassing the Pass-Key III *1 To avoid the domelight delay use tan for the drivers door, blue for the passenger door and the liftgate, and orange for the sliding doors.  All wires are negative trigger, located at the BCM and all need to be diode isolated from eachother.    *2 This wire is only activated when the wipers are in the high/fast position.  There is not a wire for the low setting.  *3 The door lock wires will only meter when turning the key in either door key cylinder. Also have to program the door lock pulse duration for 3.5 seconds to unlock the doors. On vehicles without the factory alarm, use lt. blue for lock and white for unlock. Find the wires in either kick panel.  *4 To disarm the factory alarm without unlocking the doors, use a 0.8 second pulse on the unlock wire.  *5 The ignition coil pack is on the top of the engine on the passenger side. The PCM is in the air cleaner assembly on the front of the engine compartment on the driver side, the wire is in the blue plug in pin 8.  *6 The driver side power sliding door is lt. blue/black (-) in the driver kick panel in the harness going to the rear. The passenger side power sliding door is lt. blue (-) in the passenger kick panel in the harness going to the rear.
