remote start for 2011

I have a 2011 1LT and I'm trying to get remote start installed from the dealer. They tell me it is not available to order. Does anyone know if it every will be and when?

I had a 2009 LS and they installed the 2 way BTV remote start in that vehicle for me. I just want remote start-its winter!!!

Re: remote start for 2011

My 2LT came with it. Maybe it's only available as part of the package. But more than likely would only require a computer flash.

Re: remote start for 2011

I just took ownership of a 2011 1LT on Black Friday - and I most certainly have a remote start on my key.

Also, OnStar has an app for your phone which gives you the ability to remotely start your vehicle. My limited experience with it so far, it is a pretty slick app.

Re: remote start for 2011

yeah seems they made a change.
the order guide says that remote keyless entry- has NO REMOTE START PROVISIONS.
Says remote start is ONLY available when ordered with the connectivity package. (remote start, garage door opener, bluetooth)--

Re: Re: remote start for 2011

This is correct. For 2011 model year trucks, remote start is only available with the personal connectivity package. This is on our truck and these cold winter mornings it surely makes a difference!

Re: remote start for 2011

OK, the thing to recommend to new potential 2011 buyers is now--- make sure you get the TOW package and the Connectivity package.
Both of these are a great bang for your buck and will definitely save you from headaches later on.

For American buyers...In Canada, at least Ontario, Bluetooth is a standard feature on all models except LS. Remote start is a seperate option that can be ordered on its own.
