Has anyone installed a remote starter on their FX yet? I'd love one, but frankly with all the tech on these FX's it freaks me out what it may cause.

Since posting that, I have gotten the Viper 791 alarm/remote start installed. I didn't care to get an alarm, but I wanted the visual confirmation on the remote that my FX has started because I can't always see it from my office window, so this was my only choice. It was about 590 installed and works perfectly. The shop had no problems with the installation either.

thx for your reply.

do you have the tech pgk on your FX? if so, does it affect the keyless go?

i just called a shop here that my local infiniti dealer recommended and i was not too impressed with this guy on the phone.....now i'm more nervous about letting someone start hackin' away, cuttin wires and splicing.......... :?

I have the tech package, didn't interfere with it at all. Intelligent key still works as designed. Only thing that is different is now the seat and steering wheel move into position when you start it with the remote, but no big deal. Sure is nice to get into a warm truck with the seats all nice and toasty :)

I have a remote start installed at the dealer...yes it was pricey but I wanted to be covered by my warranty. So I figured for the extra few dollars I have insurance.. This way if it screws up they are responsible..

Absolutely no problems with the tech package. I have installed many, including for a few .org members. As long as you find an installer who is used to working on higher end vehicles you will be ok.

Go for it! I've got a loaded FX and had the Viper 5xx? installed for $325, worth every penny. * COOOOL factor - the Orange LED was dash mounted, it flashes a warm glow bouncing off the headrest, looks like KITI has a pulse. 8)

Piniti, that is a good price. Does that include remote start and automatic door locks?
