Due to the popularity of this post, we have been getting a large amount of questions about this truck.
- The F-150 REQUIRES ELECTRONICS to be INSTALLED in ORDER to be able to START the TRUCK. (Your truck will not magically start by simply pressing the lock button 3 times)
- Our shop has nothing to ship you. The truck needs to be at our shop to perform the remote start and camera install. (We can not come to you)
- We can not teach your nephew Jacob or your local Ford dealer on how to perform these installations. (Yes, we know your nephews name)
Please keep in mind that ENORMIS Mobile Specialties is a retail store located in Harborcreek, Pennsylvania. Our remote car starters are only sold installed and the installation is done at our location. If you are not able to bring your vehicle to our facility in Harborcreek, PA, we will not be able to provide you with service. Thanks for your understanding.
One of our specialties here at Enormis Mobile Specialties is taking care of apprehensive customers. What do we mean by that? After your home, your vehicle is usually the second-most significant purchase you will make. So, you’re understandably leery of letting anyone do major work on it. Therefore, treating it with the respect it deserves is where we excel. Here’s an example.
A new client brought his 2015 Ford F-150 XL to us after watching our videos about how we install remote starter systems. He wanted us to install a remote starter and add a backup camera in his new Ford.
Easy To Start Ford F150 XL Remote Starter System
Working on Ford vehicles is an area of expertise for us. We are very serious about installing electronics. Therefore, we invested in a FORD IDS computer to properly communicate and program the factory Ford computer. The IDS computer allows us to enable Ford factory features. (The Ford dealers are not always able to enable these features.) In the case of this F-150, we used our Factory Start V2/V3 system as the remote start foundation in this 2015 F-150. By the way, the 2016, 2017, and 2018 F-150 can use the same remote start setup. It’s like we can read your mind!
This system (that we installed) allows the owner to start the engine by simply pressing the lock button on his factory key fob three times in quick succession. After that, the truck will start up. The owner can even fine-tune the run time and climate control settings through the factory menu on the LCD dash screen. (because we programmed the Ford computer) The best part: Adding this remote start does NOT automatically void or affect your new truck warranty!
We could start this truck with Ford factory remote control, but the range of factory remote controls is very limited. No problem! We added an Ataqan two-way 0.4 mile remote control to the system. With this added remote, the customer can be almost anywhere! He could be at home, work, church or at the grocery store and still have enough range to start his truck! The Ataqan Remote includes LEDs that advise the customer when the vehicle is locked, unlocked, or if it has been started. It is all controlled by a single, easy-to-use button. (Ford remote still works as before)
Easy To See
Because modern pickup trucks are pretty big, the customer asked us about adding a rear vision camera to the vehicle to make it easier and safer to back up. As a result, we turned to our FORD IDS computer and enabled the factory camera option in the vehicle computer. (Most Ford dealers will not do this) Then we installed a special camera on the rear of the vehicle. When the customer puts the transmission into reverse, the camera image instantly appears on the 4.2” LCD screen on the dash.
Our customer eventually returned to Enormis Mobile Specialties to pick up his truck. What’s next? A thorough walk-through of course. We then showed him how the Ford factory and new Ataqan remotes start the truck. The rear camera didn’t take much explanation! After that, the customer was thrilled with the work we had done. Later in the conversation, he mentioned that the best part was that the remote start and rear camera seemed to have come from the factory.
After reading all of this, are you interested in a rear camera and/or a remote starter system for your car or truck? Are you within a 2 hour drive of Erie, Pennsylvania? If you answered yes, we invite you to drop in or contact us. We will explain how our MECP Certified installers can add one to your vehicle. For more information, contact us here.
