Off To A Cool Start

Start your engine with the push of a button from up to 3000ft from your vehicle. The Cool Start& RS-4G2 system is a 1-Way remote start system that uses two ultra-compact extended range 4-button transmitters to operate. The transmitters have a protective sliding cover over the buttons to prevent accidental button pressing while in your pocket. Keyless entry and trunk pop are included with this system as well as auto locking with ignition. Other features include: 2-Way data port, tachometer sensing, anti-grind and horn honk.

 
Remote Start Car Alarm

Remote Start

Allows a vehicles engine to activate without physical contact from the user. This feature is useful for warming up your vehicles engine and transmission to operational temperatures. In cold climates you can have your interior hot or in warm climates you can cool it down before use. All of this can be done while in the comfort of your home or office.

Keyless Entry

Keyless Entry

Performs lock and unlock tasks without physical contact with the vehicle. Power door locks can be controlled from several feet away or even within a building using a remote fob.

Remote Start
If the alarm or remote start module has "Yes" for this value then the system has an electronic device that allows you to start your vehicle by remote control without actually being inside the vehicle or using the key. The remote start system supplies the vehicle with power and simulates a start just as if you were inside using the key. Select vehicles require additional accessories or immobilizer/bypass modules to use the remote start feature.

May 20, 2012

Pros:
Programmable for many different options
Inexpensive
Comes with two remotes
Includes LED status light

Cons:
Requires additional relays for some power door lock applications and for the starter bypass feature
Poor signal strength (if you hide the antenna) (strength may be better if you just stick the antenna to the windshield like they want you to, but who wants an antenna in the middle of their windshield?)

Note: Installation is not that difficult if you know what you are doing. If you have never done anything like this before, I would suggest you take it to a shop.
