Adding remote start to 2011 Fusion

Hey guys,
Anyone know what to change in a 2011 Fusion to turn on the remote start when installing the Ford accessory kit?
Much appreciated

IF IT is the (old) kit wired to ign switch .t harness . forscan will not help .only the new 2013-2019 fusion .uses a gateway module .that requires .IDS or FORSCan .to enable remote start .If it is the ford kit from ford .DIAL 1800 ford key ford accessory tech support .good luck I hated those kits!

Thanks for the heads up. Never thought of the gateway module thing. I've put several of those kits in, they are not bad. Have to activate with IDS, which is a bit of a problem now that I don't have 1st hand access. Too bad Forscan can't configure for it.

FORScan can enable all remote start options .on newer stuff as long as car has hood switch .start car close all doors pull hood release .should show hood open in cluster!if not a new hood latch assy.and wiring to proper bcm .input is required

Has anyone figured out what to change to activate this function?

I do have the hood switch.

Just a quick update. 2011 Was old enough I didn't need a scan tool to program. If you installed a Ford genuine accessory kit, you just need to select options in the programming bank, then program two pats keys to the security bypass by cycling them in the ignition after exiting the program bank.

Hello.

I have a Ford Focus 2017. I'm adding a hood ajar sensor in order to use the remote start function. I have installed the sensor in place, but I can't find where to connect the two wires of the sensor!
What connector (in BCM) and what pins are used to connect the hood ajar sensor?
and what connector in BCM and what pins for the fog lights (left and right and n?

bcm connector (2280c) pin#14 blue orange needs to show ground w/hood closed .for remote start . as for fog lamps (c2280B) left side pin 12 brown. right side pin 5 yellow orange . plus headlamp switch needs changed .and programming to ipcm for fog indicator to work like factory
