I'm a big fan of remote start but no one wants to put an aftermaket kit on my car, plus it would be annoying being that the remote is integrated into the key.<p>I was just looking around the web and found this link:<p><A HREF="http://vccs.volvocars.se/accessories/feb_release/vccsMawebTransform.asp?type=html&uid=47384dc1-566d-4609-9f46-201cb7479a6f&culturecode=en-GB" TARGET="_blank">http://vccs.volvocars.se/acces...en-GB</A><p>I'm not sure if thats the kit but does anyone know of a Factory Volvo remote start add-on kit and the part numbers to order it from the dealer?<p>Does anyone have it and like it?<p>

Re: Factory remote start add-on option? (sdigital)

I am browsing from the mobile so I may be wrong but if I am reading that right, it's the "Remote Start for Fuel Driven Heater" which is an aux heater installed that heats the car without the engine running. <p>I am not aware of anyone with a factory remote start or even it's availability. A couple have added aftermarket units at considerable expense and effort.

LOL, addict! I know that one says remote start block heater, the other one says fuel system... it looked easy to hook up so I was wondering.<p>On a side note, lets say I got a remote start with another key-fob, has anyone had any luck making a full key on a standalone key rather than switch blade? My dealer says they can only cut valet keys like that.

Re: (sdigital)

You can have your dealer cut a blank regular key from your switchblade key. I've seen it done dozens of times.

I think using remote makes our life so much easier. Many will agree with it. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"><p><A HREF="http://www.titanlimousine.com" TARGET="_blank">Virginia Limo Services</A><br>

You can do it but will have to leave a key attached to the steering coloum to pass the imobilzer <p>Other then that its even more complicated in the 05+ cars due to the great ideas from volvo to leave so many wires live after the car shuts off so its hard to find a wire to correctly tap off either.

Re: Factory remote start add-on option? (Papa_Kirlo)

I believe you will find this is only a remote control for your FACTORY MOUNTED FUEL FIRED HEATER. <p>Clearly living in Texas this was never an option, but I don't think it was any where in the US, so I would be very surprised if you have the required heater, or if it is possible to fit it in an existing car.

Re: Factory remote start add-on option? (rogersampson)

you are right, I didn't look deep enough as this is only the remote. But looks like the heater is available as well.<br><A HREF="http://vccs.volvocars.se/accessories/cat/en-GB/P2X/climate/preheater/VCC-249397.htm" TARGET="_blank">http://vccs.volvocars.se/acces...7.htm</A><br>

Just keep looking for a reputable shop that will do the install.

I'm currently in process to workout Drone Mobile - will keep you guys posted. $30 a year for service and app for my Android based phone, looks promising, should have more updates by the 17th. :)

Tagged. I too would love an aftermarket alarm with remote start and paging. I would prefer to lose the enormous Volvo key if possible. This is especially true if I'm adding another alarm key fob to my keychain.

I just spoke with a volvo engineer. There should be a volvo remote start available by June 2012. The only downside is that he wouldn't say whether or not it would include retrofitting to install on on my wife's 2006 s40. He also told me that he has never heard of someone installing a remote starter on their s40 and having good luck with it long term. I guess we just have to sit and wait. could be worse, could be my car!

Hahaa seriously I live in Canada it gets cold... My dad got one installed on his 04 v70 and its not the greatest, total of the instal was about 700$ including the key. Long term they aren't amazing we have issues with the fog malfunctioning with the car. When they are plowing the streets and you have to move your car. The time when the tow truck is coming and the fob malfunctions and the 1 key hole is FROZEN...not fun...
