Looked back though the previous threads but couldn't find any info on whether anyone has added a remote starter to our existing keyless entry.

Anyone done such a thing or do you have to start from scratch with a new alarm system?

Is the GM Remote Starter capable of not only remote starting, but also remote killing?

Does GM have a remote starter?  Is it like a module that the dealer installs?  I'd be interested in hearing about it, and getting a part number.

I installed a Sidewinder 6000 ESP in my Av
Remote Start

I recommend that you have it installed by a remote start installer or dealer.  Some audio shops will install them too.  They are not easy to install (lots of wires to trace down and splice into :-) ).

The model I purchased came with new keychain FOBs for starting, stopping, locking and unlocking the AV it also has an extra channel (button) that you can program to toggle what ever you want.  I am going to hook it up to my heated seats for those cold winter Alaska days :-).

I have been checking here for a Remote car starter and found out for $50 more (CND) they will connect my heated seats to come on as well. Just gotta make sure I can disconnect it for the summer time. I will get one installed in next couple of months b4 the snow.

I put one in my wifes car last winter.  A bulldog system I got from JCWhitney..  IT WORKS GREAT.  Wiring charts on bulldogs site.. They were all accurate for this model of car...  Took about 2-3 hours to install.  I stripped (the wire), soldered and wraped all connections...

IT WAS EXCELLENT!!!!  I can't say that enough..  Stay away from the radio shack ones, they don't seem to work in many cars...

The bulldog system is right up there with the best of them...

I checked mine this morning and my heated seats turn on without my seatbelt on. My build date is may 02, I wonder if the safty switch was on earlier modles?

I'm glad to hear that Remote start isn't to hard to get!  I thought with that anti-theft fuel cut off thing that remote start wouldn't work.  I will put  that on my wish list. Grin

mine turned on but did not heat, rode from Columbus to Charleston with the light on high and never warmed up, that when I took it to the dealer and the told me it has to be buckled...they fixed it has worked good ever since Smiley chevy

Mine is a Viper cost $299 installed, got a new key fob that locks and unlocks doors, starts and kills engine, and a panic button for the alarm...there is a fourth button that was for a remote trunk release, but can be used for something else like the window open/close module.....they put a valet switch under the dash and put a hood switch so if the hood is popped before the key is in the ignition will automatically kill the auto start, plus it beeps once to set and twice to disarm and all the lights flash when setting/unsetting chevy chevy
