Imagine starting your engine without a key. With a remote starter you can start your vehicle with push of a button and from the warmth of your home or office.
In the winter you can warm the engine, defrost windshields, melt ice from headlights, as well as heat your interior. Regardless of the age of your vehicle it is always good to warm the engine before driving in cold weather. Engine oil becomes thick in cold weather and warming the engine allows the oil to thin and lubricate the engine. During the summer, rather than being hit by a wave of heat you can cool your interior before you get in to drive.
The remote starter fob replaces your factory key fob; controlling your vehicle alarm and door locks, including the trunk.
As a safety feature, vehicles cannot be put into drive and driven away until a key is present in the ignition barrel or when a key is within the vehicle for wireless key systems.
