Does anyone have the exact part number needed for this upgrade? I want the all in one key, no separate fob.
I have the plug n' play remote start installed on my 2011 F-150 XLT. Like you, I had to educate the dealer as they had no idea that for the 2011 F-150's there was a plug and play option.
Here is some information I had contained in an email with the dealership. Hope it helps.
I ended up paying $310.86 + sales tax on the parts. Their original quote was $724 before I complained to customer service. The install did in fact take about 45 mins.
I have previously been in touch with XXXXX regarding an installation of the new for 2011 RPO Plug'n Play Remote Start Kit (Part Number: BC3Z-19G364-A) on my new 2011 Ford F-150. This is the new Ford Remote Start kit that requires plugging in the wiring harness/antenna, cutting/programming the 2 new IKT keys, and hooking up the truck to the IDS to enable the remote start. All the details on the installation are listed in the attached document. Please see F-150 EO kit (pg 195-202) in the document as there are other kits available that I am not interested in. The install should take around 45 minutes total.
The parts and installation price is listed on www.fordaccessories.com
Check out the following link:
Remote Start System, RPO Plug'n Play Kit
Part Number: BC3Z-19G364-A
Part only: $217.14
Part w/ installation: $288.39
Additionally, my vehicle may require a hood switch, if so, there is an additional part listed at the next link.
Remote Start Hood Switch Kit
Part Number: BC3Z-19G366-A
Part only: $21.87
According to the Ford Accessories site, it looks as though the total price should be $288.39 + $21.87 for parts and labor ($310.26). If this is correct, I would like to schedule a date to get this installed.
