Thanks Jimmy - and yes I have Alfa if I had to clear codes etc -I start mine right away out of habit anyway, but as mentioned, I have also not started it at all and just had the ignition on.
But I have no idea what happens when using remote start. Even if I had it, I wouldn't use it. Unless I'm in the vehicle and can see and hear what's going on, but then I might as well start it normally.
Unhook the cable at the battery, tie it off to something (I used the coolant reservoir) and see what happens.
If you do end up with a code, it'll take maybe three minutes to connect the cable again. Once the code's gone, disconnect the cable. Repeat as needed...although I doubt you'll have to.
Well after a year’ish of looking and hoping, I finally got a hold of a 5th Gen OEM bed step.
Bolts right up to factory bolts in place. Just need a bigger washer for one of the bolts
One of the things I hated about some of the other opinions seemed to big and out of place
Best parts was it only cost $40. Apparently the dealership just throws them away

They throw them away when they take them off for the recall and we still don't have replacement parts for them. Recall indicates the thin brace can break from a heavy side load.What was the actual problem with them for recall?
Unfortunately Dave Smith is several hours away from me, most of the other dealers around me are actually quite responsible and diligent But i wouldn't be surprised if the ones on ebay are coming from Dave SmithYou might want to check with your local dealer. But I'm guessing that if FCA is making the dealers pull them due to concerns about them breaking and thus depositing a person unceremoniously on the ground, that FCA is also requiring the dealer to dump/destroy them rather than resell them in order to limit that liability. If that is indeed the case, then you would need to find a dealer who is less than up front with FCA about what they are doing with the removed steps. Or a tech who is making a few bucks on the side without the dealer knowing...
