I have a 2008 Dodge Ram 2500 ST. Since it does not have the sentry system I cannot install a factory remote starter system. Im forced to use an aftermarket system. I currently purchased a prostart system and I have a general idea how to install it in the mux system. (Thanks to 12Volt.com)
My question is do I still have to install an immobilizer bypass module or can I tape a programmed key to under my steering column and just use a blank key to put in the ignition?.
All 2008 Dodge Rams have the sentry system. What it lacks for the factory system is the keyless entry. Yes, I need an immobilizer bypass. The aftermarket prostart system will work fine.
I was about to chime in and say just that, you might also need an additional Relay depending on how many circuits the diagrams shows as starter circuits... so head down to a local Best Buy with an Install Bay for car electronics, and they can tell you exactly what you will need as far as parts go.
Also I HIGHLY suggest an ignition immobilizer bypass that requires a physical key connection, instead of a "programmed" connection as sometimes the fully electronic ones lose their programming, and then your truck wont start. (I suggest the 556UW)
