Hello

My Jeep dealer doesn’t have any JL One Touch Sky Roof with Factory Remote Engine Start. He says the factory doesn’t supply or manufacture One Touch Sky Roof vehicles with Remote Engine Start.

I wonder if he is even right? If yes, it might be for safety or liability reasons?

If anyone has this option from factory on Sky Roof JL, please let me know.

Or if anyone retrofit Mopar Remote Engine Start to a JL with Sky Roof?

Many Thanks

Remote engine start has absolutely nothing to do with the sky one touch top lol

Now, it DOES have to do with transmission. If you’re trying to get a manual then no you can’t get it.

But again, top choice has nothing to do with remote engine start.

Dealers will say just about anything to sell the inventory on the lot.

This. I have one touch with remote start as well. Did they also tell you about the better gas mileage out the remote start?

Not intending to upsetting anyone, but was there a reason, beyond maybe profit, that FCA made Power tops and manual transmissions not available on the same JL?

Engineering reasons for this simply escape me; not that one couldn't exist.

He meant remote start isn’t available with manual transmissions.

Sky one-touch is available with either transmission.

I don’t remember but it doesn’t work doorless so it may not work with the top open but I have it on my 2019

Remote start doesn't work with the doors disconnected.
It does work with the top open but, not with the doors off as stated. Bummer since I would love to warm the car up with the doors off when it's cold.
