How Do Remote Start Systems Work?

Remote starters are most popular in colder climates, where they are used to warm up a car’s engine and activate its heater/defroster. This is especially convenient during winter months when its snowing and temperatures are subfreezing. However, they can also be used to turn on the a/c in the Summer months when the sun has your car blistering as well.

How Does It Work?
Remote starters are fairly complex products that require professional installation. In simple terms, a standard remote start system includes two primary components:

1. A controller, or module that is installed inside of your vehicle.

2. A remote that you attach to your keychain and use to start your car.

These two items: the controller and the remote work together to start your car so that your car’s heating or A/C system can “warm up” or “cool down” before you start driving.

Is it Safe for My Car?
Compustar remote car starters are compatible with over 90% of vehicles on the road, including manual-transmissions, diesels, select hybrids, and luxury makes. And more importantly, installing our systems will not affect your vehicle’s manufacturers warranty (Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, 1975).

On top of being safe for your car, Compustar remote starters also have built-in safety features that prevent 100% of car theft. When you remote start your car, your engine is on, but the car cannot be driven unless you have the key physically inside of the vehicle. Otherwise, the moment someone touches the brakes or opens the door, the vehicle will shut down.

Can I, or my Friend, Install it Ourselves?

If either you or your friend are MECP-certified, professionally-trained 12-volt electricians, then absolutely! Otherwise, leave it to the pros. Compustar has over 2,000 authorized retailers in North America, most of which have received hands-on training from our staff.

Factory vs After-Market Remote Start

Many new vehicles today have the option of including a factory remote start system, but they are very limited in terms of their range and capabilities. Typically, a factory remote starter has around 30-feet of range, which requires you to be fairly close to your vehicle to start it.

After-market remote start systems, on the other hand, not only offer superior range, but a large array of other features as well. For example, Compustar offers remote start systems that are capable of 800-ft to 3-miles of range, and have the option of upgrading to a 2-way remote. 2-Way remotes allow you to send commands to your vehicle and receive confirmation that they were activated. A few Compustar remotes also feature water-resistant technology, interactive LCD screens and the ability to charge them via USB.

Another advantage of after-market remote start systems, particularly Compustar, is that you also have the option of adding/upgrading it to include an advanced security system. Compustar security systems equip your vehicle with additional sensors to detect impact, intrusions and theft, and when paired with a 2-Way LCD remote, notify you when those sensors are triggered.

What Do I Need For A Remote Start System?

If you’re considering installing a remote start system into your vehicle, you’ll the need the following key components:

1. Remote Start Control Module
2. Remote Transmitter
3. Security Bypass Module (Most Vehicles)
4. Miscellaneous Installation Parts
5. Professional Installer

The most important component, and is often overlooked, is the professional installer. Installers can not only assist you in finding the perfect remote start control module and remote transmitter combo for your needs, but they can guarantee a safe and professional install. It is extremely important to get a remote start system professionally installed because making a mistake during installation could potentially cost you more money and headache.

All remotes and factory security bypass module is an additional charge to complete the remote start, security and keyless system.
