When a customer's vehicle enters your installation bay you should take a few moments to give it the once over. Check all the switches and systems in the vehicle as well as the exterior lights to make sure that they are working properly and report any defect to the customer before beginning your installation. In the case of a remote starter installation you should also listen to the engine to make sure that it is running properly.

2. I see a lot of discussions online that talk about how you need to use heat shrink. The use of a high quality heat shrink is great, but it is not always possible. Heat shrink needs to be slid over the wires. This is possible to do when you are connecting 2 wires end to end. When you are tapping into an existing wire, as is done on most remote starter installations, you are not connecting end to end and not able to use heat shrink. The alternative is to cut the existing wire, slide the shrink on and then re-establish the connection which is a BAD idea since you are shortening the wire and potentially causing strain on that wire. In those cases, a high quality electric tape is the way to go without question.

Every remote start kit installation is done by an experienced professional and every connection is hand soldered. Some installers use cheap "crimp-on" style connectors for tapping in to the factory wiring which can lead to faulty functionality, unreliability over time, and even worse, shorting out electrical equipment and blowing fuses which could leave you stranded in the cold or even start a fire in your vehicle. Soldering each connection is a crucial step in a reliable install. Please check out our selection, or give a us call, to find the vehicle remote starter that best fits your needs.
The following information is provided as a reference guide for remote starter installation. We will discuss the most common characteristics of the wires you must locate and connect to in the vehicle for this type of installation. As always, we recommend that you use a digital voltmeter to perform all wire tests. Test lights can seriously damage vehicles on board computers and cost you big $$$. We also recommend that all wiring connections be soldered to assure a solid lasting connection. Avoid routing any wires near any sharp objects under the dashboard, pay special attention to wires routed through the firewall. Split looming is a good idea for wires running through the engine compartment, if you don't have any available to you, taping the full length of the wire will also add some protection.This is a very common mistake. When pricing out a remote start for your vehicle, make sure that you are comparing apples to apples. Ask if the price includes everything needed for your specific vehicle. Most vehicles newer than 1995 will also require bypass modules for the ignition system, and other incidental electronics and materials. A lot of installers, even the big box stores, will “bait and switch” you with a low advertised price and then tell you that you need hundreds of dollars worth of additional parts when you drop the vehicle off for the install. All of our prices include everything needed for the remote start installation on YOUR vehicle!
