You should be able to use the key fob you have. Once you install the remote starter and re-program the fob, the remote start button will be functional.
Here's some additional remote start information:

I'm questioning if I require the vehicle security kit, and hood switch, and then the antenna, and then which remote start module.

If all you want is to use your factory fob (which will have short range, 100-300'), then you need the following components:
Hood Pin - BT4Z-19G366-A
VSS - FT4Z-19A361-A (this is the remote starter, you don't need another "module")
RFR Antenna - DA8Z-15603-A
Additionally, you could also add the remote access module and use your cell phone.
This was written in the links I sent you.

You'll still need the RFR/short range antenna (the long rectaangular one) for key fob remote start functionality.

thank you @candurin and @zman31.
I too will be diving into this once I am back home after the holidays. I just need a good source for the wiring diagram for the 3 parts mentioned above. I thought about just paying the 72 hour period on motorcraft unless their is a better/cheaper solution?
I was also told that the 5 button FOB required the additional antenna as it operated on a different RF frequency... I went through the in-car programming of the 5 key, and it does not lock/unlock the car, however the info displays key programmed successfully..

I've got a quick question on this for you. I have a 2014 Edge SEL with basic sync screen and back up camera with dual climate. I want to add remote start myself and just wanted to make sure I purchased the correct items. My Edge also has the power lift gate. I haven't opened the rear panel to see if the antenna is already installed. It's been too cold to do that.
My understanding is I need these parts for remote start to function on my Edge -
DA8Z-15603-A - antenna kit
DA8Z-19G364-A - 100 series plugnplay
BT4Z-19G366-A - Hood switch kit (I already have the wiring available)
If I understand I can download forscan and get a ODB bluetooth tool to activate remote start. My biggest question is basically can I avoid purchasing part # DA8Z-19G364-A and just order the 5 button IKT remotes on Ebay and program remote start? If that's possible I could save a lot of money.
I appreciate if you can help out in any way.

1. Buy the full kit (BC3Z-19G364-A) - this includes two key fobs and short range antenna.
2. Buy the antenna only (DA8Z-15603-A) and purchase non-OEM IKTs on eBay (I went this route, in addition to my remote access kit).
3. If you do actually have the antenna already from the factory, then you only need two remote start IKT (OEM part number is DA8Z-19G364-A) or you can find non-OEM ones on eBay.
You also need the hood switch (BT4Z-19G366-A).
To ultimately answer your question, despite my long-winded response... yes, if you do have the RFR antenna already installed in your vehicle, you can simply buy IKTs in eBay and turn on the feature in forscan with a BT OBD adapter (or have your dealer so it via IDS).

Thanks for the quick response. I'll try this route and report my findings. I can't do this until February though.

we don't have remote start on our cars over here,
wish we could

Didn't know there was aftermarket "factory" VSS modules. You'll still need to buy RFR antenna, aerial, fobs etc to create a kit. The only thing contained in your link is the VSS module and OBD t-harness.
For everyone who wants to use the factory remote why are you not buying one of these kits? Something wrong with these that I missed?
My guess is that the reason people are not getting the one you linked, is because you can find the OEM ford version for less (DT4Z-19A361-A).

So your saying if I buy the factory remote kit DT4Z-19A361-A, I can T it in while in my driveway and have remote start with triple click of the fob that came with my car with no visit to the dealer? That is what this ebay kit enables. Im looking into this for my wifes 2015 SEL, she has no interest in long range remote starting. She wants it for starting it from the kitchen of the house in the morning and thats it.

It also allows you to use your pre-existing keyfob.
Although you can use forscan and an OBD Bluetooth kit to activate a ford OEM VSS as well.
Seems as though that eBay device is pretty neat.

He said as long as I have the gateway module that the device plugs into,
I can't find it on mine,
but am sure forscan tells me I have a gateway module A

Hey guys. Ebay seller here. Couple of the Edge guys directed me to this forum. Sounds like you guys have the OEM remote start option figured out. I love the idea that you can use FOB with the factory remote start button. Are there any drawbacks to the system? I keep reading about an antenna may or may not be needed.. I would assume the range would be a bit longer than ay, adding my kit to and using the lock button to activate remote start. We are a dealerhip based shop, so 99% of the vehicle I get my hand on are brand new. Did a remote start on a 17 fusion that had 8 miles today, and a 17 f150 that was still in demo mode.
Since there seem to be some pretty knowledgeable people in here, I have a question. Any of you work at a dealer? I've had someone look into the horn honk feature.. as in turning it off so the horn doesn't honk when you keep pressing the lock button. I've researched and came up with nothing on the dealer side. I did, however, read that you can turn it off with the purchase of an ELM327 OBD adapter and some free Forscan software.
