Each year, we install hundreds of remote start systems. Here we have compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions ...

Remote Start FAQ's:

Q. Will a Remote Start System void my new car warranty?
A. NO.  We install remote start systems for many of the area car dealerships. When properly installed, today’s remote start systems are fully compatible with the complex electronic systems in newer vehicles.  Federal Law prevents an auto manufacturer from voiding a new car warranty because you chose to have non-factory accessories installed.  For more info, Google Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act of 1975.
 
Q. How long will it take?
A. Installation time varies greatly from vehicle to vehicle.  Please make arrangements to leave your vehicle with us for an entire day unless otherwise specified.

Q. What should I bring with me?
A. Please bring two ignition keys that will both start the vehicle.  Many of the interface modules require two keys for programming.
 
Q.  I have a diesel engine.  Can you install a Remote Start?
A.  YES!  We have remote starts designed for diesels.  When you activate your remote start, it will wait for the glow plugs or manifold heaters to turn off before it attempts to start. 
 
Q. My key has a chip in it.  Can you install a Remote Start?
A. YES!  We have the proper bypass module for almost all vehicles. These bypass modules are only activated when you remote start your vehicle. So, when you vehicle is sitting in a parking lot, the factory anti-theft system is still fully functional. Caution .. Many shops will bypass the factory anti-theft system all together to save a little work!

Q. My vehicle has a push-button start (Smart Key).  Can you install a remote start?
A. YES!  For most Smart-Key / push-button start vehicles, we are able to install a remote start.  There can be some additional charges for these vehicles.
 
Q. How long will my vehicle stay running?
A. The run time is programmable. Please speak to your salesperson for more details.
 
Q. Can somebody take my car while it is remote started?
A. NO.  If your car is locked, it will remain locked.  The steering wheel and shifter (automatic trans) will also stay locked.  Most importantly, you must insert your key in the ignition before you can drive away.  If anyone attempts to drive away without the key in the ignition, the engine will shut off as soon as you put your foot on the brake pedal.
 
Q. How much will I save if I install it myself?
A. Because of the complex nature of Remote Start Systems, we do not offer them for sale without installation.

 

Since 2011, I have brought four cars to Unique Audio to purchase products and services. I\'ve had all four cars tinted, replaced the factory stereo and speakers, and this last time I bought a subwoofer and amp. Charlie, Matt and the entire crew work with you one on one and are very knowledgeable about how things work. They take the time to listen to you and they go above and beyond to make sure you\'re satisfied! And, they\'re prices are the best in town! Thank you guys for everything you\'ve done for me, and I already know what my next couple of purchases are going to be in the near future!
