About the iDatastart ADS-THR-FM8

Vehicle-specific T-harness for an iDatastart remote starter

iDatastart's ADS-THR-FM8 T-harness connects their iDatastart CMHCXA0 HC remote start module to your select Ford-built vehicle. This T-harness plugs into your vehicle's electrical databus system, allowing you to start and stop the engine remotely, and control some basic factory security functions as well. Some wiring may be required — one to four connections, typically. You can identify your vehicle in our fit guide to see if this harness is compatible. Warranty: limited lifetime.

What's in the box:

  • 24" Main T-harness
  • 26" Secondary T-harness
  • 29" One-wire harness
  • Two 8" optional terminal wires (pinned for Molex plug)
  • JS2 Jumper plug

Perfect as usual!

Crutchfield customer from Raleigh, NC on 2/10/2019

2016 Ford F-150 XL

These T cables were all I needed to install my autostart in my 2016 F150 XL. No cutting! Simple clip together! Awesome as usual from Crutchfield!

Pros: Perfect fit, looks factory! Like anyone ever looks under the dash.

Cons: Perfect fit, looks factory! Like anyone ever looks under the dash.

More details on the iDatastart ADS-THR-FM8

Product Research


Overview: The iDatastart THR-FM8 installation harness is designed to simplify the installation of your iDatastart CMHCXA0 remote start module (sold separately) into select 2013 - up Ford and Lincoln vehicles, including standard 40-bit and 80-bit keys.

Installation: The iDatastart kit includes various vehicle-specific harnesses designed to provide a direct connection into your compatible vehicle while connecting to the remote start module on the other end, saving you considerable time and effort. The main T-harness interfaces into the ignition system, providing direct connections for the Starter, Ignition, and Accessory wires. Other functions may include Door Lock operation, Parking Light flash, Horn Honk, as well as Door, Hood, and Trunk pin switch activation (individual functions will vary, please see vehicle specific information for details).

Note: The included harnesses will take care of the bulk of required wiring, but some hardwiring into the vehicle's wiring system will still be required.
