I bought my first 93 SSE with one installed already, so I can't comment about installing them. I can however say that I had the Viper Alarm/Remote start on it and it would sometimes keep trying to start the car after it was started. Not sure why though, sold the car before I could get it looked at.

I installed a starter by UltraStarters. IT was cake. As long as you're good with connecting wires and properly following color codes and diagrams, you should have no problem. Click here...http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...=268539#268539

I had a Compustart Remote Start and Secuirty installed by a shop. Only advice I can give you is you get what you paid for, and I wouldnt go cheap on a item like remote start.

I also had a remote starter installed by a shop. I like to consider myself fairly well versed in auto repair and am strong technically. But I still wasn't comfortable doing a remote starter install. Plus, when a shop installs it, it'* backed by a warranty.

I've installed several Bull Dog remote starters, but not on a Bonneville. The closest one would probably be a 2000 Sunfire. Bulldog starters are very easy to install - you will just need a VATS bypass module (I think their part # is 791). On their website, they have all kinds of installing diagrams and vehicle wiring diagrams. They also have a toll free help line.

I say go for it. About 2-3 hours work, I'd say.

you dont need to spend the $$$ on a VATS bypass, just go to radio shack and get a .50 resistor. But of course you need to know how to read the resistance in the first place

But that would by-pass it all the time, right? With the by-pass module, it is only by-passed when the remote starter is working.
