17' f150 remote start install

Post by Lance954rr » Wed Dec 19, 2018 7:06 pm

Hey. Im trying to install my remote start in my 17 f150. I bought the long range kit from fairway ford on ebay. Ive followed the instructions but for some reason i just cant seem to get anything working.

If followed the steps and am trying to learn the vss to the truck.
My instructions say to cycle the key on then off and then the doors will lock then unlock. Yea that isnt happening.

Can Anyone who has installed a factory kit please help me! Its gunna get cold here by the weekend and i dont want a cold truck anymore 😭

Your truck probably came with the factory installed remote start. All you would need is a programmed key with r/start option, and enable it in forscan. At least my 17 Expedition was this way.

Sounds like your having a issue programming the keys? Are they new keys, and do you have the original 2?
