No, seriously, there is no way you can do that unless you take the dash out, remove the wiring harness and then reconnect all of the connectors without the dash.
That would work.
If you think about it, the dash is a cosmetic hangar for the wiring harness behind it; well, and the vent piping.
Damn, man, you couldn't have done this back in February or March?
You couldn't have picked a worse time to do this.
You can read the how-tos and the FSM for removal instructions.
It's very time consuming -- especially your first time.
And one more thought: It's supposed to cool off into the upper 80s next week, down here by Indy.
Maybe you could wait a week. Something to consider.
As Peva said the steering wheel has to come down but it can go back up after the dash is out.
Your remote start is spliced into the original harness for sure. That's how all the aftermarket ones are done.
That would all come out with the dash harness and dash.
