What is a Remote Start?
Remote starts are generally installed underneath your steering column in your vehicle. Remote starts control your vehicle’s ignition circuit and can be programmed to do much more. Most vehicle remote start systems are the brains of an aftermarket vehicle alarm system and can usually operate as an aftermarket keyless entry and remote start right out of the box.
An aftermarket remote start for your car or truck will generally have much further operating distances than factory remote starts. It may also be possible to add an aftermarket remote start system by using your factory key fab. Remote starts can have lock and unlock buttons as well as trunk release and panic buttons or they can be one button systems that simply just start your car. Some of our remote start models we sell in Jackson Wyoming can be operated by your cell phone, have GPS tracking, and can send start confirmation messages to your phone or new key fab when started. Some remote starts can even turn on your accessories like rear window defrosters and heated seats.
Whether you just need your new remote start to start your vehicle while you stay warm in your cozy house during the winter or while you stay cool in the summer, Jackson Tint and Sound has remote start options within your budget.
What Does 1 Way and 2 Way Mean?
1 Way remote starts operate like a factory remote start system. On a factory remote start system you might have a dedicated button for starting your vehicle on your factory key fab. You might have to go to a window and see the parking lights flash to know that your vehicle did in fact receive the signal and remote started.
2 Way remote start systems will generally have an audible cue played from your new aftermarket key fab along with a LED light confirming that your vehicle received the signal and then started. 2 Way remote starts are significantly more convenient than 1 Way systems and Jackson Tint and Sound highly recommends 2 Way remote start options when deciding to add a remote start to your vehicle,
Adding a Remote Start to Your Car?
Remote starts for most cars will require the the additional purchase of a bypass module. The bypass module needs to be uploaded with the firmware for your specific vehicle and then must be installed correctly before the bypass module can be programmed to bypass the security chip in your vehicles key. Remote starts and remote start bypasses require dealer access for vehicle specific wiring schematics and tech support. It is highly advised that you only buy from and have our professionals at Jackson Tint and Sound install your new remote start system. Our Omega Excalibur series remote starts come with lifetime warranties when purchased and installed by Jackson Tint and Sound.
