Has anyone here installed the Ford part number JS7Z15603A - long range antenna kit for their remote start?  We've got a 2017 Titanium which came with remote start as standard but the range is ridiculously short.  I found this part number, only $30.00 but nothing on line about installing it in a C Max.  I'd be happy to pay the dealer a reasonable charge for the installation but just wondering if anyone here has done this on their own.  It's basically a antenna with a long wire that plugs into...something.

I would assume you'd plug it into the keyless entry rear antenna connector or directly into the Remote Function Actuator module depending on the type of connector on the end.  Here's some snips to help.

Cool. I think I'll start by requesting a price for the part plus install. More to come...

Dealer says the antenna extender only works with the dealer installed remote start, not the standard remote start included with our Titanium. Oh well.
