I though all gx460s have remote start and it just has to be enabled by the dealership.

I connected techstream and didn't see remote engine start option but I have seen it in a picture online. Will it be in techstream? I think I need to select another setting at the program start up. Under select "option" radar cruise vs other option ( I selected other) Do all GXs have remote start hardware installed?

If so what category is the option under?

2011 GX with TS v12 maybe I need version 13

You need the remote start module. You can get a factory module or an aftermarket. I believe they both function the same way.

Yeah that sucks, my truck came with it already installed and I just had to turn it on. Was hoping this had it. Seems like a cheap module they should have just put in to make a quick $300 at the dealerships.

12V Solution seems compelling but an option that wasn't there or unknown several years ago... I lucked out and got a OEM for less than $100 a few years back and installed myself. RES installs on '10-'15 models.

I'm surprised it even need a wiring harness. I figured it would be like the crawl control module. Plug and play into wiring already there.

My truck stays locked and running for up to 30 minutes. Encase I go into a store and the dog is with me I can turn it on and run in for the milk or something quickly. If someone hits the brake pedal it turns off, so locked and running is perfect.

The GX auto turns off so if someone walks up with the dog inside to look at her they would turn off the AC if they touch the handle. Seems dangerous for the dog esp in the FL sun.

'16+ includes the hardware but requires an Enform subscription. Still not sure what they plan to do for those '16-'18 owners when the 3G it relies on goes offline after October 2022. Perhaps they will give them free local remote start for free? No discussions about any hardware retrofits at this point. This issue encompasses more than Lexus.

Anyone have any ideas about getting just the V4 harness for the RES module? The modules are cheap cheap used, but dont appear to come with the harness...

I’m using the 12Vsolutions setup and for ~$200, I’m very happy with it. Plug and play, so like the option you’re considering but piss poor directions included, but you can figure it out. Easy to undo if ever an issue. Overall, recommend.

Hi All,
Any one installed OEM remote engine start kit for 2015 GX 460. I am following the install instructions, but could not find the 1P RES diagnostic connectors from the vehicle. I searched in the passenger cowl area, but could not find.
Any one who installed this, could you please guide me.
Thanks.
Sam
