I was told by my dealer that a remote start is not available for the Challenger Scat Pack vehicles. Has anyone found a solution?

The number i found for the 2017 challengers is 82215098. But the dealer says it won't work with my Scat

82215098 is correct, you must have Automatic, Remote keyless entry, and Immobilizer

I have the automatic, entry, I am guessing it has the immobilized. I emailed that part number to the service manager and he said that won't work with the 17 scat Pack. He said best they could do was an aftermarket remote that would work with my fob by pressing one of the buttons, either lock or unlock, 3 times. Did not specify which aftermarket unit. Maybe I have to call another dealership.

Check with these folks. I had one of their systems when I had my 2013 R/T and it was great! Their site doesn't show the unit available for the 2017 but you should contact them to see if it's been updated. When I bought the one for my car, the site said it wasn't available, but it was.
The things are basically plug and play. You unlock the car by pressing the lock button 3 times.

Remote Start is an option on the 2017 Scat Packs with automatic transmissions. It is part of the Driver Convenience package. Mine came with it. Not sure what the dealer is saying, maybe they are not familiar enough with Challenger Scat Packs. Not sure I would want that dealer working on my challenger.

Remote start can be added on some but thought that Luke said not on 392 cars.

Found a local dealer that said he can put in the Mopar remote, 82215098AB. $290 for parts & calls for 2 hr labor :)

When I bought my 2013 R/T new, it basically had all the prerequisites to install the mopar remote start. The dealer gave me a price and the parts guy ordered the kit, Their parts book had it listed for that car. They received the parts and they installed everything, programmed the new fobs and ... it wouldn't work. They messed with it for hours and were never able to make it work. They finally contacted corporate and was told that it would not work in that car due to programming in the computer. Seems that the capability was programmed out after the car was built without remote start. Positively ridiculous, but fact.
They had to completely remove the entire system. The dealer had to eat the loss of time and the cost of the new key fobs because, once programmed, they're useless on another car.

This is why I needed up with the FlashLogic system which worked beautifully and way cheaper.

Since you have found a dealer who will do the install, make sure you have yourself covered for all costs in case it won't work.

I read somewhere that the vehicle had to be driven X amount of miles at X MPH for a set time for it to reprogram itself. ?? Thanks for the heads up, I'll make sure they agree to honor their estimate. They have the directions for the part number 82215098AB, and it says to read through the instructions completely before beginning and steps need to be done in a specific order. We'll see what happens once the part comes in and I go over and talk to them.

Adding options later sometimes not as easy.

Good point Slidd. Might be difficult to add later with the way the electronics are set up. The instructions A Guy posted showed a 392 Hemi in the engine bay picture, but that might be their standard photo to use in engine bay diagrams. I guess the OPs original question still stands, has anyone with a scat pack had remote start added after purchase? Since a dealer agreed to do it, guess it might be possible.

So I should feel fortunate to have a 2016 scat pack with a remote start??? Really, no more? Wow.
Wonder why?

I must be missing something here. My 2017 Scat Pack has remote start which was part of the drivers convenience package. Unless your car is a manual.

So the second dealer was right. It can be done. I now have a dealer installed factory remote start. Unfortunately I can not find anyone that can tell me why it won't show up on my Sirius Guardian App. It shows on my Mopar owers site as dealer installed equipment.

Hi Blackscat17,

I received your PM and I'm investigating this further, I will let you know when I have an update for you!
