Learn fundamental info about remote starters and the expert technician who can install one in your car.
How They Work
Essentially, a remote starter works with a controller installed in your car. It operates in conjunction with a remote to start your vehicle. Having such a device is especially useful during the chillier months of the year. You don’t want to go outside to crank up a cold car and sit inside a cold interior while your car warms up. While you might not mind going out in the cold to start your vehicle and wait for it to warm up inside, driving your vehicle immediately after starting it in the cold can damage the engine and reduce your gas mileage. There’s also the fact that a remote starter can boost your car’s overall resale value.
Push-to-Start Vehicle Models
If you have a push-to-start vehicle and are wondering about remote starter compatibility, know that you can still enjoy the convenience of starting your vehicle from a distance. This is made possible by the fact that the remote starter can replicate your car’s smart-key signal to crank the engine and warm up your vehicle. With both push-to-start vehicles and standard key models, anti-theft technology is built into the remote start to keep anyone from driving off with your vehicle while you aren’t inside it.
That being said, there are a few things to keep in mind with it comes to remote starts in push-to-start vehicles. For instance, there’s a possibility you might have to use the remote to unlock your car while the engine is running. You may also need an extra key before we can successfully complete the installation of your remote starter.
