Picked up used ‘17 Latitude interested in adding factory remote start

Hello all, new here as I said in the title looking to add remote start to a ‘17 Latitude. Was it a factory option and is it possible to add after the fact? Thank you

I know this is the old key fobs that we still had to put in the ignition, but were rfid chips no keys. I asked the dealer how much it would be to put in factory DRCJ remote start on my 2010 Charger and was told I would have to have the ignition replaced, and a module added. I assume that would also mean the computer flashed to recognize it and of course new fobs. I was told to look into the aftermarket remote starts it would be a heck lot cheaper. Idk with push start if this would be the same to get true factory remote start but if so those ignitons are like 800 bucks then the fobs are like 300-500 a piece idk how much this module is then of course labor and programming fees. I would look into seeing if there is aftermarket kits that work with our jeeps first.

I'm no help at all as I'll say "get the idea outta yer head".

Very, and I mean VERY little of this vehicle is Plug n Play. I think the only thing guaranteed to be Plug n Play are the floor mats. Sure, you can add an aftermarket remote start (use the search function to see others posts) and it may work and it may not. It may create havoc with your existing system, you may have to go to the dealer for a proxy alignment (programming) or buy the software/hardware yourself and do it. As far as aftermarket, remember the old adage; you get what you pay for.

Or (my suggestion), just keep wishing you had it then walk outside and start your vehicle as it came; push button start. Less money, less headache and you'll sleep better at night.
