Remote start season coming

Remote start season is coming, and you should start preparing for the installation now before it ices up and gets too cold.
Here are some basic remote starts which will get the job done. Remote start will heat up your car before you get into it. Remote starts will melt the ice off your windows, no more scraping the ice!

The avital 4103 is a good remote start with a lot of feature, which will work in almost every car. It is compact and very easy to install and comes with instructions.


An upgrade to this unit is a 2 way remote start with security and paging. A little fancier and offers page back when the car is started. It also has a car alarm package with siren and flashing lights


A basic unit from Compustar is the CS800 with keyless entry. Compact and small, this unit will be a good pair for any car.


You will need a bypass kit to go with either of these, to work through data – to bypass the immobilizer in your vehicle

See the EVOALL for an universal immobilizer bypass module

Compustar Remote Starts

You want to pick a company that produces reliable products when you pick you remote start. Something that will work reliably over time, and you won’t have to troubleshoot or even have to rip it out and do the entire installation over. A brand we recommend is Compustar. Below are some products.


Remember that most modern cars required a Data Interface and an Immobilizer bypass module

Remote Starts

What is the purpose of Remote Starts and why do you need it?
Remote starts allow you to start your car remotely. In the comfort of your home or work. It will warm up your car in the winter, or it will cool your interior in the summer. Never get into a cold or hot car again. Also, if your car has ice on the windows, you can remote start the car with the heater on and after the car warms up, you can simply push the ice off the windows (no more scrapping!)

Most new cars will have immobilizer bypasses, you will need to bypass this security feature to install a remote start. There are modules to do this. This is required for almost all cars built in the last 10 years or so. Be prepared for this and the added cost. Some work on data, and can simply plug into the remote start. Using data, you can save the time and avoid additional wiring.

Some of these bypass modules will require a programmer, since they come blank

However, there are universal type bypasses which will cover one manufacturer and should cover most cars, (for example, one for honda, etc) - and those do not require the purchase of a separate programmer.

Ford, GM, Honda, Hyundai, Mazda, Toyota and related models 2001 to date. The ADS-KO covers most older cars in that group.

 

 

 

There are also units which are plug and play for many type of vehicles. They are more expensive, but they come with a plug and play harness which is great for novices or beginners. The majority or all of the installation simply "Y" and plugs into existing harnesses. Be sure to check model and compatibility before choosing an unit.

If the main remote start is capable, remote starts can be programmed to start by a cellular phone app. This allows you to send a remote start command when you are in a concrete building, on an airplane, underground in the subway or anywhere as long as you have a wifi or cell connection to your phone. If the system has an alarm, it will also page your phone when your car alarm goes off.
