Things To Know About Remote Starters

The time to really appreciate a remote starter is on the coldest morning drives to work. However, there are some important things that many people don’t consider when purchasing a remote starter.

Every remote starter has a specific range where it will function. The typical range of remote starters is between 500 feet and 5,000 feet. This means that one should consider whether they plan to remote start a vehicle in the driveway in front of their home or need a much further range, like if in an apartment building or department store.

In addition, one must factor in any possible interference between the vehicle and transmitter. For example, for vehicle right outside your door, a 500-foot range should be sufficient. On the other hand, if your vehicle is buried deep in a parking lot, a higher range of 5,000 feet might be necessary.

Remote starters can do much more than just start a vehicle. They provide keyless entry and can even activate your heating systems. Added features and options make our vehicles much more functional and convenient.

Because of the way remote starters must interface with the existing electronic system, it is highly suggested to consult the expertise of Audio One’s car audio professionals. Let us help you choose the perfect remote starter for you and your vehicle!

Warranty Concerns
Many people believe that having a remote starter professionally installed will void your vehicle’s warranty. This is simply not true! The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act of 1975 prohibits the voiding of a warranty based on adding after-market products, unless the FTC has noted the specific product as causing failures.

Installation Matters
Some people say they don’t want a remote starter because it can damage their vehicle. The fact is that a high quality, properly installed system will not cause any damage to your vehicle. Commonly, problems with remote starters are due to cheap equipment and/or improper installation.
