Default OPINION: Retrofitting Aftermarket Remote Starter/Keyless Entry System

2000 Honda Accord LX V6
150k miles

My stalwart 2000 Accord is an LX model, which means no keyless entry. I've endured two decades of inconvenience; now I want keyless entry--and remote ignition as well, 'cause why not. So I'm researching various aftermarket products that offer a device that combines these two features.

Two issues rise as common amongst the different brands of this purpose-designed product: anemic instructions and documentation; and issues with ignition immobilizer systems.

The video below illustrates the installation of the Avital 4103 into a 2000 Accord. While it appears to be a chore, it's clearly possible to have success so long as one has all the required devices, accurate instructions, and latest updates. Have you installed this sort of widget into your Accord? If so, mind sharing your experience with the product you chose?

I installed a Viper remote start and alarm system in my 2001 Accord. I used an idatalink immobilizer bypass. It worked great while I owned it and works for the new owner. I soldered every connection, which helps maintain proper function over time. The documentation was good and plenty of information is available. I marked up Haynes manual schematics prior to installing which helped serve as a record of the effort.

Thanks for the response.

Do you recall the model number of both the Viper and iDatalink immobilizer products?
