Is there any way I can possibly install the Mopar Remote Start kit in my Caliber, but use a key fob like this instead of the standalone single button remote?

There are 6 buttons in there, someone on here reprogrammed their remote for window closing so somethings are possible.


Our keys commonly carry buttons for locking/unlocking and a panic alarm.
Some add remote starting.
That's four but when you open up the case there are six buttons - any suggestions on the other two?

maybe programmable for window operation or other alarms?

Found more info-
Chrysler and Dodge vehicles from the 2005 timeframe use a keyless entry system developed originally for the Mercedes brand. The system actually implements the driver convenience and safety functions, and an immobilization function designed to prevent vehicle theft.


The fifth key function on some models is for a powered remote opening tailgate.

I am guessing that the sixth applies to powered sliding child doors on the minivans?

it seems like the other buttons can be deprogramed for other cars like the calibers and the chrysler cars. but i think they can be programed for the remote start.

The guy on here (search auto window closing) worked in electronics.
I emailed him and he had sold the Cali. He said he would do it but professionally (meaning it's his livelihood income).

I am a professional auto electrician. ( www.incarspecialist.com ). I have managed to successfully fit a "total" closure module into my SXT. When I hit the lock button on the factory remote, ALL four of my windows close AND my wing mirrors fold in! When I hit the un-lock button, my wing mirrors fold out automatically. I have also done some magic with the missing LED's on the electric window switches!!! These are just a couple of the advanced modifications I have done. If I can be of any technical assistance, please do not hessitate to make contact.

So I got some new keys. 2 for $14 on Amazon. Had them cut to the VIN for $15 a pop at a Dodge dealership. Another quoted me $10 but I was already near this one and just stopped into the mopar parts department. Good news, the keys I got sent from Amazon have four buttons instead of three like I ordered, so I should be able to program the trunk popper for remote start, right? The trunk button says 2x, I'm guessing that means you have to press twice, but maybe it can be programed to press once?

There is no lock relay on the Caliber. I think that fob is for the Journey.

A lock relay.... u mean for trunk? It says dodge caliber on package and both of the new red keys work. Wait I just tried the button and it just blinks the tail lights twice. I thought it might be lock without the beep.... no. No lock or unlock just tail lights blink twice. Nothing else from what I can tell.

Yes trunk. Don't Panic - does that just sound your horn? & flash lights

The labelling probably just means the transponder & remote is compatible with the options you do have.
