I looked into Mickey Shorr as well and the locations don't work for me out of Chicago. I did call the place 12 Volt Solutions place I provided a link for previously https://www.12volt.solutions/product...finiti~md_qx56 and think I'm going to go with them. It's a self-install and done in 2 stages. They send you the module and harness, you install it, then remove it and send the module back to them and they program it for your car, then they ship it back, and you re-install it. I THINK this is very similar to what Kcrebel has with the Viper module except this one uses the factory key FOB 3x lock button. You do have to splice into 2 separate wires 1)runs up to the start/stop and 2) Open/closed door pin, and the rest is the harness. They are confident it will work as described and if I have a problem send it back for full refund. It has the range of the unlock/lock feature. I checked and mine unlocks/locks from a few hundred feet away and through walls at that range which is fine for what I need. It's $239. I'm going to give it a try.

I thought of doing one myself as well...but Mickey Shorr is 2 blocks from my work...so for ME, to save a hundred bucks just isn't worth it....Plus I got a 2 year warranty on it...I can drop it off to them if I have ANY issue and walk to work. What your going with is very interesting though..but my question is...who is the manufacturer of the remote start? Is it made by Vipor, Clifford, AutoStart or some other big name? I would be skeptical if it's some generic type. Do you have a Best Buy where you live? Because they sell the Viper system as well. I'm not a fan of Best Buy...but at least they will stand behind the product. Good luck with whatever you decide.

I'd go to Mickey Shorr also if I could for the extra $100 bucks, but it's either Grand Rapids or Detroit which isn't an option. I could start checking around also, but I'm not real confident in finding an independent shop that I trust. Sure Best Buy is an option too, but that's only if you can find a tech that really knows what he's doing and has experience with Infiniti setups. These modules are all programmable now which allows them the flexibility to work in many applications and have some intelligence built into them. So yes Viper is a trusted name, but the reality is it's a box with a circuit board inside with a programmable chip. If it doesn't work, you just remove it because it's really just a bypass. This comes with a 1yr warranty and for an extra $50 with what they call their forever warranty. This company has seemed to find their niche in self install remote starts for cars that are push button starts which to be honest makes sense.

Not blaming you for going to Mickey Shorr, just not an option for me. I'll let you know how it goes.

I too am interested in a remote start system for my '11 with the above features:

1) OEM key fob
2) No engine cut off after door is opened or brake is depressed

I plan to visit the dealer this week in Sacramento and will keep everyone updated!

I use this https://www.ebay.com/itm/Fortin-OEM-Plug-Play-T-Harness-Remote-Start-Car-Starter-for-Infiniti-Nissan/122196627305?fits=Make%3AInfiniti&hash=item1c737c8 f69:g:gJcAAOSwtDdaXtXL:rk:1f:1

Super easy to program and install. I press the lock button on my oem key fob three times to turn on the vehicle and three more times if I want to cut it off. After that I can unlock doors, and lock doors with out it cutting off the vehicle. All these options you can program. I have mine set up when I get in the car and press the brake it flashes the lights twice to indicate that it is back to normal mode. The vehicle stays on until I push the start/ stop button or if the timer runs out from the initial remote start, which is 5 mins for me.

did you install it or did you have an aftermarket shop do it? if the latter what was the install price?

did they/you have to splice any wires? did you get the extended remotes for extended range?

No aftermarket shop required. It took me about 1 hour to install, that is with updating the unit first and setting all the parameters with the computer. Everything is plug in an play except for the wire that connects to the push start button. You will need to splice and solider that in which is not difficult at all. The company has great support, so if you get stuck or need to ask a question they are quick to help. This kit does come with extra wires, but they are not used with our trucks. If memory serves correctly the plug and play connections happen between the brake switch and the ODBII plugs. I did not get the extended range remotes, because the OEM remotes worked perfectly with the unit.
