Installing a remote car starter is an achievable task… for those with professional experience with car electronics and maintenance. It takes in-depth knowledge of the wiring system particular to your vehicle and it’s crucial to ensure everything is properly connected. Many DIY sites claim things like “How to Install a Remote Start with Simple Steps,” but just reference the wiring diagram and expect you to follow that. In truth, the instructions that come with the system for how to install a remote starter can be very complicated. Then you’re left to determine the necessary tools for remote start installation. Starting to see where this can easily go wrong, very quickly? When installing DIY-style, an extra piece or bad wiring can cost you later in repairs and is just not worth the headache. Let’s take a look at some of the essential steps of the installation and how complicated they can be. Basic Steps of Remote Start Installation: Remove the lower dash under the steering wheel The remote starter needs to be connected to multiple wires Test each wire relevant to the installation Attach the ground wire to the chassis of the vehicle Attach it to the starter to start the circuit Connect the ignition output from the remote starter to the car’s ignition wire under the steering wheel Locate the starter wire and test it with a multimeter Connect other components as applicable to the specific remote starter Connect the tachometer wire to the sensor Wrap up by connecting keyless entry, anti-theft and other optional components Reconnect the car battery and test the system to make sure all components work The Safest Installation Practice – Let the Professional Installers Handle It! As you’ve surely gathered from reading through the steps above, just the wiring alone can go wrong in multiple ways.

Practically everyone knows what remote starters are, but not everyone knows how they work or what they should look for when selecting one for their automobile. At Audio Express, our professional installation team can help answer these five most frequently asked questions about remote starters and help you select the right car remote start installation for your needs and lifestyle. Automatic Start for a Car Won’t Void the Warranty Installing a remote start on your vehicle won’t void your vehicle’s warranty… but it may save money on your insurance premium if equipped with an alarm. Check with your insurance company to find out more. Pros Can Handle the Installation Quickly Car remote start installation doesn’t take long to complete. In most cases, a few hours is all it takes to install, test, and put the finishing touches on, giving you years of convenience and enjoyment. Many Systems Can Be Coupled with the Factory Fob Many consumers worry they will have to give up their key or change their fob when they install a car remote start. This used to be the case “back in the old days,” but times have moved forward and many fobs and keys can be easily coupled with remote starter systems, and in some vehicles you can control an aftermarket auto-start directly from your factory key fob. Car Remote Starters Work in All Weather Conditions Modern car remote start systems are very reliable. No rain, sleet, hail, snow, dust, heat, or swarms of locusts can stop a Viper or Code remote start from doing the job of starting the car. Quality Counts When it Comes to Remote Car Starters The higher the quality of the remote starter, the greater the range and the more reliable the device will be. Viper and Code Alarm offer remote start systems in all different price ranges, with a great selection of features. From a range of a couple hundred feet, up to a mile or more, remote start has become an affordable upgrade. There’s even 2-way systems available that will give you an alert confirmation that your vehicle has started. With a wide selection at all different price points, they are well worth the investment. Tips for  Selecting the Right Car Remote Start It is important to select a remote starter with sufficient range for your needs. Typically, 500 feet is more than sufficient; but range can be adversely affected by buildings, trees, and stray radio frequencies, so we would always suggest going with the maximum range available. Also, having a 2-way confirming system helps, by letting you know your system did receive the signal sent from the remote. It is also a good idea to select a system that has the functions you would benefit from having, i.e. systems that can also control the rear window defrost, heated seats, trunk, hood, etc. Finally, be sure to have the system installed at by an authorized dealer. This can help ensure a higher quality installation, plus gives you a warranty thru the manufacturer that cover you if something goes wrong. And, you know exactly where to take it if any issues ever arise, and know they are certified to work on your system.
