Added remote start

I just added remote start to my 2011 2LT. I had the Dealer install it. It was 350.00. Works great no problems. They changed a part and I got 2 new remotes with the start buttons. I still have the 2 that came with the car, they can,t start the car but good to have as spares.

Re: Added remote start

Is this the remote with the key fobs that look like your factory- except it has the remote start button (circle arrow) or the fancy remote...

they most likely added the hood latch sensor- so it cant be remote started with the hood opened.

There was several members who were told remote start was not available in early 2011 (to be added)..
seems they are now able to - or you have an informed dealer.

Re: Added remote start

it looks exactly like the original remote except for the circle arrow button. When I first asked the dealer where I bought it they told me I had to get an after market one. That was in Nov. I am now having the car serviced at another dealership and they told me it was no problem. I don't know if things have changed or if the first dealer was uninformed.

Re: Added remote start

I'm glad to hear that you were able to get this feature. This should be very helpful to those who want to add it to their 2011 now.

Re: Added remote start

sounds like you can now remote start using the APP.

Re: Added remote start

jim8,

Thank you for sharing your experience with adding the remote start to your 2011 Traverse 2LT. Please, clarify for me which dealership installed this for yoy, was it at the dealership that you talked with in November of 2010 or was it the dealership that you had the vehicle serviced at? I apologize, for my confusion.

Re: Added remote start

Hi Michelle,

The dealer that services my car now is where I had the remote start installed. They are Best Chevrolet in Hingham MA. I have only visited them a few times but they have exceeded my expectations. Unfortunately I can't say the same about the dealer I purchased from.

I too just had the GM factory remote system added to our LS, unfortunately it does NOT appear that the IPod App will allow for the remote start.

You have to have onStar for that. Then you SHOULD be able to remote start per the App.
