yeah i did, but i concider the start wire as my clutch bypass.

its 120 for any alarm or RS to be installed, and 150 for alarm/rs setups. that is "cheap" compared to others.

what do you guys charge for basic install exluding bypass module(s)?

We get 499.99.   399.99 during the holidays.   But it doesn't matter on what the install is.   Sliding doors. Trunk release.   Rear defrost.   Power hatch control.   If the vehicle has it factory I have to make it work with the aftermarket remote

wow thats cheap for labor. Most of the time for just a basic remote start with the locks i'm charging about 150 just labor. If it is a stick and we are installing a stick compatable unit then its an extra $5o for labor. However it all depends on the car. For instance sometimes the bypass takes car of it and sometimes like on subaru's you can get a factory neutral safety wire for stick vehicles.

thats a good deal then if its 499 for 2way all in.

im just curious, how long does it take you guys to do an alarm/remote start (with bypass, assuming no data module can be used)

It depends on the car but usually about 2-3 hrs   The new ford code start only is nice I did a 11 Lincoln Mkz yesterday it took me 30 mins car was back out the door

The sedonas before we started using idata link    would take me 4-5 hrs to do full alarm/keyless/start/ slider control    you would have to go into the door for locks which meant going through the molex connector. the door triggers, dome light, trunk pin were all at the RAM(rear area module) in the back drivers side of the van   

THANK GOD FOR ADS-AL-CA's
