You cannot install the factory remote start unless you car already came with all the necessary wiring pre-installed and the module pre-programmed to make it remote start ready.

You can contact GM to see if your car is remote start ready. Some are and some aren't. Installing the factory remote start is basically programming the new remotes so that they can be recognized and activating the remote start function on the car's computer.

did they ask you for the VIN number? if they did then they're not lying ...

what i can say is that the remote start isn't a hard thing to install ... a factory one can be a bigger pain in the ass ... cuz you'll have to know where the module goes and if it's not prewired then it's nearly imposible ... i'd have to change the whole wire setup and i don't think you wanna do that ... you can get a aftermarket one ... of course they're not as cool ... plus you should know that a dealership charger $97 for a remote with a starter on it and 35 to program it ... so ...
