I was hoping maybe someone on here that installs remote starts/alarms could help me out with an issue.
I am planning on having the new Viper 5901 with remote start installed in a 2005 Ford Focus ZX3 manual trans. at a local shop in the next couple of weeks.
The lady (who is the owner of Car-feteria in Milwaukee)was looking over Directed's technicians wiring and info website at the specific of my car (2005 ZX3 Manual). It said that the Focus had 30 amps coming into the car. She said that 30 amps is probably not enough for the remote start so they would have to go to the battery for power. Something like it takes more than 30 amp to start the car. Now I have heard this on 2 separate quotes from 2 different places. Is this true that a 10 guage power needs to be run from the battery? I can't seem to get a clear answering or find anything in any searches I do.
Also do these prices seem fair?
Viper 5901 installed $500.00
XK04 Bypass $60.00
Manual Trans. Programming $75.00
If need to run new power $50.00
I would run the new power just to save money because I can easily do that, but am not sure if its needed and thought I would ask someone who might have experience with this before.
Thanks in advance,
