I doubt it. A lot of the newer cars use specific wiring and coding. For instance 00+ bonnie'* have the databus system between Onstar, stereo, etc..

Range and features would also be considerably less than an aftermarket one. Most shops also warranty their labor.

Directed Electronics. they share many brand names, but are all made by the same company

I have an AstroStart 903u It was a pretty straight forward installation in my Regal. It has been 100% reliable and has great range on the remote. You can also wire it up to do remote power trunk and door lock functions.

It'* what I prefer to install at work (well, it'* only what we sell but we do get people with the ebay brands everyonce in a while).
