There is another thread here: https://www.clublexus.com/forums/nx-...starter-4.html

Two items were brought up. 2015-2017 Remote starter:

2015-2018:
https://www.12volt.solutions/product...h-button-start

When I emailed them about the 2018 model with Enform they stated that a fuse has to be pulled when programming the remote start, then once the remote start is programmed the fuse is put back and all is well. I am going to be ordering the 2015-2018 and installing it in my wife's NX. It uses the stock key fob and is 100% plug and play. Should be an easy install since I have already taken her entire center dash/console apart when I did various other things.

At $289 it's cheap and I'd much rather pay a company that made the device and put the time into it rather than to have to pay a subscription service for Lexus/Toyota when this should have been a STANDARD feature of the vehicle.. I totally get wanting to start the car with my phone, then yes, I should pay a subscription. But if using the OEM key fob, it should still be able to remote start the vehicle.... Stupid lexus/toyota. My sister's $17k honda fit has remote start from the factory using the fob and it tells her the temp inside the car... Why a vehicle that is more than double the cost doesn't have this as a standard feature is so asinine.

Note I am NOT affiliated at all with the above site. Just passing some info. I had placed the 2018 kit in my cart last week. Got a couple emails from them stating to finish check out... like always I always ignore those emails..lol

Got an email from them yesterday and they said "ok you win, you waited and it paid off"..lol I guess if you hold out for a week they send you a 10% off coupon to use on the order. I ended up saving about $30 on the order. Figured I'd share the info.

Should have it probably in a week. I'll post up after I install it. Should be fairly simple since it's all plug and play.

*EDIT 2:
I emailed them an apparently the new version of their remote start no longer requires ANYTHING to be done to Enform or fuses to be pulled prior to programming.
When I get the kit I can take pictures of the install to help anyone going forward.

Got the remote start kit. Arrived super fast. In like 2-3 days fast. Only thing I wish they would have done is double box the item... but all arrived ok and un-damaged. Depending on weather I should have this installed here shortly. They are calling for snow the next two days so depending on if I can button other projects it would be nice to have this done in a day or so.

Pics of what I got:

I don't usually write or read posts however here it is:

I finally got the long awaiting for LEXUS START+ GENUINE LONG RANGE REMOTE ENGINE STARTER installed from my dealership (Ottawa/Gatineau Region) on my:

Canadian, Lexus 2018, NX 300, with Executive Package, manufactured date: 03/18.

Part Number for the remote on the invoice is: PK5A0-78JSM, LONG RANGE RES

The long range remote works as expected, and both OEM fobs got activated and also work as expected.

Pass this around for all our Canadian friends.

Does the engine shut off when you open the door?
