I think it does. I've only seen some pictures myself. I figured for 30 bucks you can't really go wrong. The few people who have installed it already are in love with it.

@zigger215, I'm interested but I need to know if it requires running wires under the hoodliner. Can you find out?
I ask because, if so, that's a non-starter for me since my cowl induction hood required a custom hoodliner -- and I used chemical resistant aircraft firewall material that's glued to the hood with 3M spray adhesive. (If so it's also a pity I didn't know about this about 4 months ago when doing the hoodliner!)

I would be concerned about the hood pin switch. I have seen tons of them go bad on remote start systems causing them not to work. If it went bad from being in the rust belt, wouldn't the light stay on? I know that they are low power consumption LED's but I would still be concerned.

there is an awesome location for a hood pin on our trucks that won't fail. When I get home from prudhoe bay, I'll take a quick pic and post it. I've never had one fail on a nbs Chevy and lots of the nnbs Chevys have a factory hoodpin wire you can tap into
Your point is certainly a good one as I can see its the only possible weakness in the system.

Yes I do agree there. When I install an auto start for a friend I do not put a hood pin in for that reason. However, best buy installers are jokes, second, there is a place on the back drivers side lip, right next to the spring on the hinge that is perfect, like I side I'll get a pic of that too for you guys when I can. It is on the nbs trucks and it is fail proof

Here's a thought, instead of using a hoodpin as the trigger, wire it to the cargo light switch? Use that as your switch. Just thought about that.

Lol, good idea! Except my yukon xl does not have a cargo light! I would probably just get a good weather proof switch and put it under the hood.

That's a good idea too, lotta options with a fairly simple kit such as this one. I think for the $30 price tag, you almost can't afford to NOT have it on the truck
