    Does anyone know if the remote start plug n play kit from 2011-2014 f150s will work on a 2021?

    I get that the fobs are diffent styles, so I would need the switchblade key with a 2x button.

    I was able to add oem remote start to my 2014 edge by adding the tpms anteena, programing a key with a 2x button, and enabling in forscan.


    My brother has spotty cell coverage so using Ford pass is intermittently successful.

    Thoughts?

    @thesavo

    Welcome to FFS


    See this one on the 'Jungle'

    https://www.amazon.com/KICKY-RIDE-C...fdcac&pd_rd_wg=qU5Fr&pd_rd_i=B07GH7CDMM&psc=1

    FORScan, great tool.
    Bought OBDLink MX - bluetooth, came with TORQ
    app.

    Laptop is my way to get in, so much easier.

    All I had to do on wife's 2013 Explorer PIU was
    add hood pin and Edit 2 lines of the codes,
    program two 5 button fobs I bought on fleabay.

    Not sure what is available for the 2021 F-150.
    Check the FORScan Forums though.

    Yes, forscan forums are next
    I check accessories. Ford. Com and it's not listed as compatible. I think some models changed since 2020 and it's going to take some new discovery.

    Ford is 'redonkulous' now for Rotunda Service
    and some of the Techs don't know their butt from a
    yellow jacket's nest in the ground.

    Licensing it is over $900 a year and cable for your laptop is
    $100+

    No wonder the Russ-skis hacked into modules and sent it out
    as freeware.

    The pic on 'Jungle' tap in cable for harness in steering column
    and brain box.

    I used to do these in the VATS and PATS days with DEI key boxes
    under the dash.

    Long gone are those.

    Digital encoder boxes now.

    Not to shabby.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I'll compare the options. I remember the bad old days before ignition t-harness and having to splice wires. Not too reliable back then.

    Be sweet if Global Windows were left in the modules like Explorer were.

    No mention of global in the 2021 owners guide

    Having to splice in resistors to deal with GM VATS was terrible.

    Not so bad.

    I had Electronics Training and ran 20K units at a
    Chassis Upfitter from '95 to 2000.

    Could make the older quad relay system to run off
    older alarm systems for window controls from remote
    key fobs.

    Time consuming, but it worked.
