Anyone here ever put a remote start/keyless entry kit into their 240?
I have a 93 wagon and am planning to install one very soon. I've heard some bad things though, mostly related to install and installers.
I have considerable experience with automotive wiring and a helper who knows more than I do, as well as the Bentley diagrams, tooling, and shop.
What I don't have is a ton of Volvo or remote starter experience.
My plan of attack is to select a kit, read the kit's pdf instructions before I buy it, and see if I can find the wires/connectors they call for on my car/diagrams. Any thoughts?

Send me an email and I will forward you the instructions for the old keyless system we used to carry. This should shed some light on the install. Integrating the keyless start should be pretty easy if you have the Bently and a test light.

Welcome to Swedespeed, Jon.

Assuming your 240 wagon has an automatic transmission here is a link to play with while doing your research...

Hello all at Bulldog http://www.bulldogsecurity.com/bdnew/testimonialsnew.htm

I recently purchased your model rs82i remote starter kit. It worked perfectly. I've seen numerous other Bulldog products in the store that have obviously been opened, attempted, and finally returned. I guess lots of people don't have what it takes to install your product. Well, I did, and I am confident that this remote starter will play a major role in prolonging the life of my '88 Volvo 240 wagon, a car with almost 250,000 miles but still going strong. I live in Madison, WI near a lake and the winds blow fierce. It gets really cold here and I really look forward to getting into a warm car and never scraping ice off the windshield again, thanks to your wonderful, easy-to-install, affordable product. Keep up the good work.
Thanks again,
Morgan in Madison, Wisconsin.
