Default My car has remote start?

The previous owner said it did, the rad support sticker is telling it does, and there is an aftermarket module under the dash that looks like it would be it.
The previous owner didn't have a remote for it though..

The only code on the module is 'OK/9H'

I googled and ebay searched it but nothing came up.

Does anyone know how to tell what type of remote start it is? Should I try to open it up?

I opened it up today and there wasn't anything written inside saying what manufactuer it is.
I also had a buddy that installs stuff like that look at it but it didn't look familiar to him.

Looks like I have a useless box under my dash..

I've traced the wires as far as I could and still couldnt find anything...its hooked up to something though when you toggle it on(?) a light on the tip of the switch lights up...weird...sorry this doesnt help you but i had to get that off my chest that switch bothers me....hope you have more luck with your unknown than I have with mine

there should be an fcc id on it, you can use that # to find the manufacturer

Would this be on the board itself?
Is there a ballpark of how many characters it would be?

should be on the case, has to be on the board. no idea on characters, could be anything. should be labeled as fcc id though.
