The BOA265B is the same as the BOA165B but it ALSO INCLUDES KEYLESS ENTRY (ability to lock/unlock your doors with the push of a button -- additional installation with actuators may be required). Leave it to the engineers at DEI to come up with a high-quality, easy-to-install remote start system with so many features. The new Boa DIY (for "Do-It-Yourself") series is made specifically for the novice handyman, and features a computer CD-ROM with step-by-step installation video and comprehensive illustrated instructions. Plus, you get free access to DEI's comprehensive installation database, with thousands of vehicle wiring diagrams, wire locations, and color codes (access is time-limited). Boa Remote Start systems are intended for fuel-injected, automatic transmission vehicles only.

BOA Remote Start systems can warm up your vehicle's engine with the push of a button from up to 500 feet away, and start the vehicle's climate control system, so you climb into a cabin that's the perfect temperature, no matter what the weather is like outside! The Boa DIY 165B remote start system features programmable start parameters to interface with virtually any vehicle, and can even interface with your vehicle's factory security system.

Handy timer mode automatically starts your vehicle every 3 hours for 24 hours to keep your interior warm in the winter or cool in the summer. Boa DIY systems use the latest technology, including 66-bit Clone-Safe code hopping, which offers complete immunity from code-grabbing thieves. The Boa DIY 165B remote start system comes with a four-button transmitter that can be programmed to control many of the system features. Installing a Boa DIY system is as easy as it gets, and requires no special tools - simply follow the step-by-step instructions, connect the wiring with the included installation kit, and you've got remote start!

This product is specially designed as a do-it-yourself product that does not require specialized training to install. Installation kit and instructional CD are included!

A remote starter system requires basic vehicle electrical knowledge to install, and can compromise occupant safety if improperly installed. Please note that the BOA 165B is not a vehicle security system and does not include a siren.

Great Product!

July 17, 2007

Well, I purchased this product because is was a cheap way to add a remote start system to my car. It is fairly easy to install, however, make sure all your connections are tight.

I used T-Taps Connectors to connect all the wires, and one of the wires wasnt connected very well, and that cost me $30 for someone to trouble shoot it.

Also, i noticed when i first got the product, the range on the remote wasnt very good, well, i was only getting about 50 feet maximum, so, i decided to go purchase a new battery for the unit, and that fixed the problem.

It turns out the battery these units come with, are no good, or at least mine wasnt.

So, i recommend you purchase a new battery for it after you receive it.

Other than that, This product is AWESOME!
