FAQ - REMOTE STARTERS

How does a remote start work?

Remote car starters are devices that allow a vehicle to be started without requiring either the driver or the key to be physically present. This feat is accomplished through a component that is connected to the ignition system and fitted with a radio receiver. When that component receives a signal from a paired transmitter, which typically takes the form of a key fob, it activates the starter motor.

What is the range of a remote starter?

The distance you can remote start your vehicle from depends on the type of remote starter you purchased.  We offer ranges from 800ft all the way up to 3 miles.  There is even an option to start your vehicle using your smart phone from anywhere in the world!!  

If I can't see my vehicle, how do I know it started?

There are two different types of remotes that a remote start system can come with.  Type 1 is a one way remote and type 2 is a two way remote.  A one way remote is a remote that submits the start signal but does not receive any communication back from the vehicle confirming the vehicle started.  A two way remote does receive this communication back and will make a series of sounds and light blinks to let you know if the vehicle successfully remote started.  If you will be starting your vehicle in a situation where your vehicle will not be in direct sight then a two way remote is the way to go.


Can I remote start my vehicle using my factory key fob or do I have to carry an extra fob just for remote start?

With many of the newer vehicles out, it is now an option to utilize your factory key fob to remote start the vehicle.  This is what we call the factory fit package and it's a very popular option.

How long will my vehicle run for once I remote start it?

We can customize the run time based on what the customer prefers.  The average run time is 15 minutes but we can program it to run all the way up to 45 minutes.  

What is the warranty on a remote start?

All components of the remote start system come with a 1-3 year factory warranty depending on the system purchased.  The installation comes with a lifetime warranty.  This means if an issue arises due to an install error, we will provide the fix free of charge to the customer.
