Hello, my name is***** and thanks for your question.

Is this a Ford add on remote start system? What happens when you engage the remote start, is there any series of beeps from the horn or the parking lamps?

OK thanks. Ford did not offer factory remote start in 2007, only dealer installed add-on remote start.

So with the doors locked and attempting to remote start the vehicle, the parking lamps don't flash at all?
