Time to calmly take this whole thing right to the Shop Owner and see if he has the integrity to make it right.

The installer going to do everything possible to deny faults and make excuses. Time to go right to the top, and get it made right on his dime. Given whats happened, I wouldn't let him touch the car further. You'll end up turning up the volume to the radio and having the window washers spray.

I think they actually did put the part I gave them in but used a second one, not sure why but I'm still pissed about all my stuff not working right now

Finally got stuff put back together totally, had to find the turn signal wires under the dash to hook the mirrors back up, they rushed putting the car back together and forgot to plug in my steering wheel control interface so that was an easy fix, then the accessory power I have no clue what happened but ended up just running a new wire to the switches, then he decided to wire my pushbutton start into the remote start harness instead of just leaving it hooked into the car where it was so I have no clue why

but all is good now, one strange thing I found is that they hook in the shutdown switch to disbale the remote start but leave it hidden next to the brain instead of putting it where it can be accessed

I will take a video tomorrow since it looks like we will have school closed

I'm glad I have two mechanics at my house. My car won't ever see a shop except for maybe paint. I don't think I could have taken what happened to you as calmly if a shop did that to my car. I'd be driving right back to the shop and probably screaming.

My car hasn't been in a shop since last spring but the warrenty was void unless a certified shop installed it, maybe it was a certified shop but sure not a certified installer himself
