Remote Start Installation Fresno CA
Having a remote start installed in your vehicle has year-round benefits. Never get into a cold or hot vehicle again! Operated by a remote or key-fob, comfort is just a button press away. Ice on your windshield? No problem! Just remotely start your vehicle from the comfort of the indoors and watch it melt away. The same goes for those blazing hot summer days, just leave the AC on and you won’t have to worry about those blistering hot seats and steering wheels. And that’s just a few of the benefits. Did you know that you can actually save gas mileage by “warming” up your vehicle before driving? That’s right, because it heats the oil making your engine run much more efficiently, keeping it from exerting unnecessary strain.Remote starters are often bundled with keyless entry and security alarms. We carry 2-way remotes that offer advanced protection against theft by alerting you via the remote if the alarm is triggered.
Is it Compatible?
Most if not all vehicles can be equipped with remote start, keyless entry, and alarm systems. Formerly limited to automatic transmission vehicles, new technology has allowed installation in nearly any vehicle whether it’s manual transmission, diesel fuel, older vehicles, vehicles with push-button starters, and even “chipped” key anti-theft vehicles.
Manual transmission or “stick shift” vehicles require a neutral safety switch, which provide a failsafe that prevents the automobile from starting unless it is in neutral and the emergency brake is set. There is a process to leaving the vehicle which we will go over briefly. Firstly, remember to set the emergency brake, and leave the shifter in neutral. Then roll up any windows and remove the key. The engine may run for a few moments but will shut off shortly after. If you opt to go with a security solution, some will automatically lock all doors and engage the alarm. If you choose a 2-way remote system you will get a notification indicating the vehicle is secure.
In vehicles with chipped anti-theft systems, one or more bypass modules may be required so the vehicle can recognize the correct key code without the need for the actual key.
We can even install aftermarket solutions if your vehicle has existing factory anti-theft and/or keyless entry installed. Many are not aware of the limited range and functionality factory systems provide.
Tips on Shopping for a System
With an incredible amount of options available to you, it is always best to be informed. Now you may think that range isn’t a huge factor; however that couldn’t be farther from the truth. Another interesting piece of information is that most systems are warranted for as long as you own the vehicle. The remotes usually are under warranty for 1 year from the date of purchase. Remote start and security system installations can not void your vehicle warranty, and remember we install these remote start systems on brand new vehicles every day for most area car dealerships
Proper installation is a very intricate procedure and if you have Uncle Bob or a friend of a friend install your system you could wind up with literally thousands of dollars in damage to your vehicle. This is why it is best to have a system professionally installed as we are experts in the solutions we carry. Our trained professionals ensure your installation is done right, the first time.
Remote Range Explained
Range is one of the most important factors to consider when selecting a remote car starter. As the saying goes: It’s better to have more than not enough. Sure you may park in your garage or driveway at home, but what about work, trips to the mall, movie theaters, sports games, parking garages, downtown nights out, restaurants, or airports? These are just a few scenarios that you may not think of initially, but definitely become useful.
Surprisingly, choosing a longer range for your remote start is not significantly more expensive either. Choosing an appropriate range for your system also ensures that you can find your vehicle in crowded parking lots, and that it is nice and warm, or cool when you enter it. Generally, remote range varies from 200 feet up to a mile, or unlimited range if you choose a cell phone interface for your new remote start.
Another topic that is commonly overlooked is interference. Yes, we live in a world full of electricity, radio frequency, buildings, motors, fluorescent lights, other vehicles, power lines, and other various obstacles that can drastically lower the effective range of your remote. When you see the advertised range mentioned on a product packaging; that is taking a perfect world scenario distance with no interference, so keep this in mind when choosing the products range.
