GM Factory Remote Styarters are coming out in the 2004 Trucks. Due to the new wiring that came out in the 2003'* that doesn't allow you to wire in a remote starter. The fix for the 2003'* if you try will cost you $500+ for starters & that'* just the simple fix too!

lol, that'* what we have in our car... it works, never failed... dirt cheap, so I guess you get what you pay for
Yup, I've installed three Bulldog starters so far, and they've been fine.

Anyhow, what you're describing doesn't sound like a Bulldog system; among other things, the brand name on a Bulldog is clearly visible on both the remote and the underdash control box, and they even mold their (800) number on it as well.

As someone else said, GM will be offering remote starters as a factory option in the near future, but they have not done so yet.

This thread has also given me a clue as to what the little black box with a tail (wire antennae) that'* stuck to the inside of my windshield might be.
Maybe it'* a keyless entry?? (on my '94, I have a remote for lock/unlock doors, and the trunk)

The apparently aftermarket key-fob does work the locks, but I saw somewhere (maybe in my Chiltons) that the stock receiver is in the body, kinda in the rear driver'* side fender well.

I haven't had time yet to dig in the dash, as recommended, to check this stuff yet, tho.

Turns out it is an UNGO. The sticker on it says "CS150". The closest I can find is CS 105 on thier site. Any of the experts out there have any advice?

Okay, I'm begging. Gonna do the whole wash and wax and ake a few pics thing tomorrow before we go out dancin' (Well, she dances, I drink ) tomorrow.

If I were to post some pics of the parts, do we have any experts who could lend a guy a hand with some instructions? I want my remote start back, I'm too old for MN winters without it!

Sorry, but can you tell us what the original problem was here? Is everything intact, but it'* just ignoring you, or what?

If it will operate the locks okay, but won't start the car, look to see if there'* a safety interlock under the hood that'* become disconnected or messed up. Usually there is a pin switch or plunger switch that will block the starting procedure if the hood is open, to prevent nasty surprises while working on the engine.

Also, if it will operate the locks okay, I doubt that any "reprogramming" is needed because the key-ring transmitter and the receiver in the car obviously recognize each other already. If it won't start the car, but should (i.e. you know for a fact that it used to work), look for an interlock that'* preventing it from doing so, as above.

If you're pressing buttons on the transmitter but nothing'* happening, check the transmitter with a known-good battery. (It could be that the little buttons on the transmitter are failing, but let'* hope not.)

If _that_ doesn't work either, (this is a real longshot guess here...) try pullling all power connections to the receiver box in the car, giving it a minute or two, then reconnect the wiring and immediately press a button on the remote. Disconnecting its always-on power supply and reconnecting it _might_ put it into learning mode, and it will recognize the first transmitter it hears from as being the correct one for the car. (This is similar to the initial setup procedure for a Bulldog controller, which I know you don't have but might be worth a try anyhow if all else fails.)

Good luck; if you think your problem'* bad, _I'm_ spending today pulling the A/C evaporator out of my '93...

Did a quick google search and didnt come up with much, but did notice that they (Ungo) are owned by Clarion--maybe you can contact them and see about manuals or something for it?

Back in 99, I got a used Ungo alarm system (freebie)--called ungo, and they sent me a new wiring harness, instruction manuals, and install manuals--all for $5
Might be worth your while to call em and ask

The original problem was that the remote stopped working at all. I'll try the "unhook" idea, then give clarion a call when my bank account is back to positive numbers.

I hate to ask the bloody obvious here but you _did_ try a new battery, right?

I seriously doubt that the car would forget its remote just because the car battery went dead one day or got replaced; they're designed to not do that. But I've seen enough flaky and dead remotes that I would suspect your transmitter key ring has gone bad.

With some Googling you might be able to find a place selling used aftermarket ones (if Clarion can't help you); I know there are outfits selling factory remotes.
