    Does anyone have any suggestions on a true plug and play aftermarket remote start that will work on a 2023 4runner ORP? I purchased a N2 designs remote start that said it was plug and play only to find out that I need to splice into wires in the OBD harness and that is not something I care to do. I am looking for a remote start that will be a truly plug and play without snipping or splicing wires.

    If anyone is interested in this N2designs who is located in Colorado let me know
    I just watched the video on this and the video shows there is a 7 pin connection on the steering column which mine does not have. To confirm, The 2022 does not have this either? The website says its for a 2022-2023 but the video they have linked is to a 2020-2021 4runner that has the 7 pin connecter. Also, did you have to take the glove box out?

    12 volt. If you have a pushbutton start, it will turn off when you open the door. No way around it with a plug n play system.

    This one comes recommended and is on my wish list. I believe you have to do some panel removal and stuff though. There are some YouTube videos out there. You might consider watching some of those and seeing if it’s outside your comfort level. Or like me, your expertise level. I’m seriously considering having a professional install it.

    12 volt solutions has been working for me, 2 years now. I installed it in less than an hour w/ the app module and programming. 100% plug and play. At first the install looks intimidating, but it’s actually easy. Just take your time.

    I just installed this one...about 20-25 mins and yes the glove box comes out but pretty simple...seems to work well with a bit of a lag between the 3rd press and the engine start...just a few seconds but worried me at first and I kept repeating the sequence...I be happy now and so is my wife...no more crawling out of the back of the runner into the freezing cold to get in position to start...and warm up

    I ended up going with the one from accessorides.com and got it on a black Friday deal. It came today and it was fairly easy to install and was completed in about an hour. It was a true plug and play and it works well so far, thanks for the suggestions! It's going to come in handy on the cold Colorado winter days.

    I have the N2 system and it was plug and play if you have the SOS button on the roof next to the drive modes.

    Are there any that DON'T shut the 4R off when you open the door?

    I was reading up on the N2 kit listed on R4T and in the description they have this blurb: "All Toyota/Lexus vehicles Push to Start ignition type will shut down if any door, hood, or hatch is opened"

    I understand the frustration. We have an Acura MDX in our family with remote start that stays on when you open a door and only shuts off after a) 15 minute run time, or b) if you attempt to engage the transmission without the key fob being detected. Wish that Toyota had implemented a similar system.

    There has been a change in the last few years where there is no longer a 7 pin plug in under the steering wheel so you need to tap into the wires in the ODB harness. Unfortunately the N2 kit is being designed to where it works with many different models now so it not just plug and play for all models anymore. There is a different way of plugging it in depending on if you have a locking steering wheel or not and if you have an SOS button or not. They needed to just make a different kit for the newer models rather than just trying to patch work the existing kit to work with newer models.

    Oh makes sense. Yea I agree with a different model for each unique vehicle.
    So you have good luck with the one you purchased. Glad to hear.

    There must be at least one system that doesn’t shut off when you open the door, mine has one. I’m not sure which one it is, someone else installed it before I bought the car and I haven’t taken the panels off to check yet. But mine only shuts off if you put your foot on the brake pedal before putting the key in the ignition and turning it.

    I think the problem is with the Push Button start cars. The 2020+ models shut off because of the Push Button. Otherwise it should work exactly as you describe... like every other car on the market. Thanks Toyota!
