General Features

Security System Type
This indicates whether the product is a security car alarm product, remote start module, or a combo unit that offers security with remote start features.

Security: This means that the car alarm system is just that. No bells and whistles, just a car alarm system.

If "Yes", the system will have alarm security features to help prevent vehicle theft and tampering. Remote start modules without alarm features will have "No" for this value.

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.

Good deal

May 21, 2009

This is a good product. I have an earlier version on my car and just put this newer version in my wife's vehicle. Two way remotes use standard AAA batteries so no worries about replacement. Good range. If you are not familiar with remote starts but are familiar with alarms this will still be a challenge. If you have not done either before then have a professional install it and by all means -MAKE SURE IT'S SOLDERED into the vehicle's wiring. I have no problems with this one and my old one still works like new after 5 or 6 years now.
