Mike, a Titusville resident, called the store about upgrades for his 2018 Jeep Wrangler Sahara. Because, Mike had just purchased the vehicle as his winter utility vehicle. In light of that, Mike wanted to add a dependable remote start and a reliable backup to his new Wrangler. So, he asked around. As a result, most everyone in Titusville said, “take it to ENORMIS”.
2018 Jeep Wrangler Qualifies for Vehicle Specific Remote Start
Mike called the store and spoke with Doug Reichert our Integration Specialist about the 2018 Wrangler upgrades. By the way, Doug is also our Jeep Wrangler Integration expert. That’s because, Doug is very familiar with upgrading many Jeeps in the past. As an example, Doug knew that the Wrangler qualified for our vehicle specific remote start system. In further detail, Doug explained all the benefits about the vehicle specific remote start. Such as, a completely integrated and seamless installation into the Jeep’s existing wiring harnesses. This vehicle specific harness also provides a basic remote start using the existing Jeep key fob. But, Mike needed a longer range solution. Because, the factory Jeep key fob only works about 75 feet.
2-Way Remote Provides 1/2 mile Range
Doug recommended that Mike choose the optional 2-Way 1/2 mile Mile Range Transmitter. So, That means, this little remote features a 1-button design capable of sending up to 4 commands: lock, unlock, remote start, and shutdown. Not only that, but this remote provides a maximum 3,000 foot range and 2-way confirmation. It just so happens, the 2-way confirmation is what Mike was looking for! The reason for that is, he can’t always see the Jeep when remote starting it. So now, Mike can be in a windowless building and he will know whether or not his Jeep is getting warm or if his doors are locked!
2018 Jeep Wrangler Gets Backup Camera for Safety and Convenience
Mike is using the Jeep as a plow vehicle. Because of that, he wanted a backup camera for ease of reversing in a parking lot while plowing. So, Doug explained that we could add a backup camera. And that camera would be mounted behind the spare tire. The end result would give Mike a clear view of what is behind him. Also, Doug explained ENORMIS owns the Chrysler WI-TECH computer tool. With that tool, we would be able to display the backup camera image directly onto the Wrangler’s Navigation radio screen. That means, no need to add costly prone-to-failure interfaces. Also, Doug directed Mike to our website to review previous Wrangler’s we had upgraded. After checking out the website, Mike was ready to schedule.
MECP Technician Performs the Installation
MECP certified technician Ken Whiteman was assigned to upgrade the Jeep. Ken began by installing the vehicle specific remote start harnessing. Then, he paired it with the optional 2-Way remote control. After the remote start was installed and programmed, Ken installed the 2018 Wrangler backup camera behind the spare tire. Ken mounted and aligned the camera through the top spoke of the spare tire. While Ken was running the wiring for the backup camera, Operations Manager Mike Macaluso was programming the Jeep radio to accept the backup camera image.
After checking the image for clarity and field of view, Ken began re-assembling the interior of the vehicle. Ken had the project completed in 1 day. Finally, Mike stopped into the store and got a complete tutorial on the remote start and backup camera from Doug.
