Last 8 of VIN- A7234101, has RPO's AOU,MN5

Took my car to the dealer last week and had them install a remote start for me. Turns out they outsourced the project and had a place down the street install an aftermarket kit. It ended up about the same cost as the one I thought was being installed, so I didn't ask. The starter that I thought I was getting : Part Number 19213691

Yes, yes I know I should have verified ahead of time, but the thought didn't even occur to me that a dealership would be outsourcing and installing aftermarket equipment.

My question(s) to you: Would I be able to just buy the remote starter fob [Part number GM22733524], and have the dealer program this to work with my car?
I've read that they might be able to just reprogram my car for remote start?
If I go with my original plan of the 2-way starter and buy it online, can I just bring it to them for installation?

Would have sent this as a PM to someone, but I guess I have to have a minimum of 10 posts to PM anyone.

Guess I have to step-up my activity around here, eh?

I'd go back to the dealer and b1tch...with the factory fob.

Along with throwing a huge fit.

Always seems to work.

On some newer GM's all you need to do is buy the 22733524 and have the dealer enable the remote start option and program the new keyFOBs to the car. I just did a 2010 Sierra and to my surprise that's all it was. But they had the remote start button assigned to liftgate. (No liftgate on a pickup) I just re-assigned the start button to remote start option and it worked. But I don't know about the 2010 Cobalt yet. I know the 2007 doesn't have this pre-wired but the 2010 might.

Is there an option in one harness vs. the other where you could tell?

I don't have access to Alldata or GM's specs...I've seen you post a couple detailed diagrams so I figured if anyone, you might have it. I wouldn't mind having remote start, only thing I didn't have on mine :(

Big secret, I was just at the dealer and everybody there said they didn't know, but they know they're just not allowed to tell. I just wanted to know which years did, so I wouldn't waste my time.

Bought the 2-way GM19213691 from GM Parts Direct, but it's a special order. Once that comes in I'm bringing it back and having them put it in and take the aftermarket out. Bright side, I'm pretty sure they'll only charge me for the installation of the new one....and not for the removal of the aftermarket. Well, here's hoping.

If anything, I've learned from this to ask and verify twice before I leave my car for any work done. Ugh.

Alright, 2-way remote is installed and working flawlessly. Loving it.

If you guys ever get one heads up- the remote is a bit thick, about twice the thickness of the stock GM one.


I searched through the forum here, and didn't really see a place to sell the aftermarket starter they initially installed.

Can't even find info for it on the maker's website, and havent seen anything like it on E-Bay, but better versions are selling for cheaper than I paid for it.

I just want this thing gone so if you'd like a cheap remote starter for your cobalt let me know.
