I've gone to a few shops today, they're all worried about installing it and damaging something because of how the wiretech site says it recommends not installing a remote start till a later date(I'm guessing when instructions are updated?) because they're worried it will short the entire system.

I know people have installed remote start systems on the 05+ Corvettes with the push button. But I want to know if there's a shop that has already done it themselves and knows what they're doing installing it so there's no possible problems. The electrical system is all stock, and mechanically it's a bolt on/supercharged car which I don't see effecting anything but I want to make sure everything's known up front.

The reason I'm asking for someone that's possibly installed remote start systems on a C6 already is because every shop that I've gone to today except for one all said the same thing when I asked if they've installed one before on these models,"Oh yea, already done a couple of them, it's a normal install" And then I get there, they look it up and tell me they can't do it which tells me right there they never installed one in the first place.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

The kit is a 5901 Viper Kit, and I've got the 1101T bypass module which I believe is all I need.

If I can't find anyone that can do it, I'm either gonna shelf the kit, or install it on one of the other cars.

It's a place up in San Bernardino. Shop called Pacific Stereo.

For godsakes don't get it mixed up with the Pacific Stereo in Lakewood, ca though. That place is garbage.
