Your Guide to Remote Start Systems

As technology improves over the course of time, automotive manufacturers race to stay on the cutting edge. While some advances are focused on performance and aesthetics, other improvements in the automotive world are designed to create a more luxurious experience for drivers. One of the most attainable and luxurious additions to any vehicle is a remote start button. How Remote Starters Work A remote start system enables a driver to fire up the vehicle with the push of a button – without even getting inside. A remote, similar to a keyless locking transmitter, is linked to a device that is installed in the vehicle. The device connects to the starting mechanism in the car. When it receives a signal from the remote, it activates the starter, and the engine turns on. Types of Transmitters The type of transmitter used to remotely start a vehicle depends on a lot on whether or not the car already has a remote for locking and unlocking the doors. Buttons cannot be added to a remote, but the remote may be modified to start a car or truck by pressing a combination of existing buttons on the transmitter. There is no need to do it this way, but some users prefer not to include an additional transmitter in their pocket, which they have to do if they select a single-button transmitter. The best option for a lot of drivers is to go with a three-button transmitter. This way, one button can be used for remote starting, and the other two buttons can be programmed to lock and unlock the car doors. Also, remote start transmitters typically have better range than any transmitters that are included with the purchase of a vehicle. This makes life easier when the driver wants to start a vehicle from a considerable distance. Why Professional Installs are Important Because the option to remotely start has to integrate with the vehicle’s ignition function, the installation process is extremely important. A botched installation might render a vehicle completely useless and require expensive repairs before the car will work again. Modern cars include security measures that make the starter difficult to tamper with. These same security features can make it hard to install a remote starting technology. Installing a Remote Start Almost every vehicle made since 2000 requires a computer chip to start. This must be considered when installing remote starting capability. In the case of cars with keyless ignition, data modules and other complicated mechanical instruments will come into play. Beyond that, some vehicles will shut off the engine if the doors are open to prevent theft. Other security measures might make it impossible to start the car if the car’s bonnet is open or shut the engine off if it is running idle for too long. All of this makes it extremely difficult for anyone but an expert mechanic to install remote start ability in a car. Fortunately for our customers, Audio Express employs only the highest caliber of mechanics, all of whom are capable of a flawless remote start installation.

Authorized Dealers vs. Unauthorized Dealers – What You Need to Know About Where to Buy

Authorized Dealers vs. Unauthorized Dealers – What You Need to Know About Where to Buy

  • Audio Express, authorized dealer, authorized dealers, customer satisfaction, quality, warranty
The difference between authorized and unauthorized dealers boils down to the authenticity and legality of products. At authorized dealerships, a legal relationship with the manufacturer grants rights to sell a brand. In return for this right, vendors must agree to uphold brand standards. The dealer must be mindful of the manufacturer’s warranty on products, installation and maintenance practices, and quality assurance. Often, unauthorized dealers infringe on the intellectual property rights of the manufacturer. These vendors might disregard the product warranty of the manufacturer, sell defective items or even distribute gray market goods. Such dealers don’t hold themselves accountable to checking serial numbers or verifying the true source of a product. Their quality control doesn’t even ensure the working order of the inventory. Product Warranty When an authorized vendor sells equipment, we guarantee the manufacturer’s warranty. If something goes wrong, the manufacturer itself is beholden to the customer to resolve the problem. Repair or replacement is guaranteed. We have an obligation to the maker as well as the buyer.  An unauthorized vendor has no such commitment to the manufacturer. In many cases, the product in question isn’t even from the manufacturer it appears to be, or the connection cannot be verified. In this case, the customer is left hoping that an unauthorized vendor is going to rectify an issue with an improper product. When the dealer is unresponsive, there is no recourse for the consumer. Quality Insurance Authorized dealerships get their product from the manufacturer directly. We track each sale with the manufacturer. Serial codes are present, and we use them. Unless specifically noted, everything we sell is brand new. Audio equipment from a certified vendor is guaranteed to be what the customer expects and pays for. Unauthorized dealerships can get their products pretty much anywhere except the manufacturer. The products may be stolen. They may have been purchased used for resale. They’re often missing serial numbers and barcodes. They’re not eligible for product warranties or potential rebates from audio companies. Service after the Sale Authorized locations have a knowledgeable staff. Their employees have been educated on the best practices of the manufacturer itself. That means installations go smoothly and are done exactly as the product’s maker intended. Should something ever go wrong, trained technicians are ready to assist with making it right. Other dealers can’t guarantee the authenticity of the product, much less the installation practices. This drastically increases the likelihood of future problems with the equipment and lowers the chance that the problem can be resolved satisfactorily. Conclusion Simply put, when looking for premium audio equipment, a customer’s best interest is with an authorized dealer. At Audio Express, we offer our customers the comfort and security of knowing we are manufacturer-authorized.
