Some people say they don’t want a remote car starter because it can damage their vehicle. The fact is that a high quality, properly installed system will not cause any damage to your vehicle. Commonly, problems with remote starters are due to cheap equipment and/or improper installation. The other knock on remote car starters is that they can damage a vehicle’s battery. If there are not installed properly it’s easy to ground out one of the wires and drain your battery prematurely. The starter also needs to have a safety switch so that there’s no damage to the electrical system.”
A remote start gives your vehicle extra time to reach normal operating temperature, warming the engine and making the oil less viscous, allowing it to flow freely through the engine. Although there is no doubt a remote start will make your drive warm and comfortable, the accessory is not for everyone. Any vehicle started with the remote engine starter can idle for a total of 20 minutes. Automatic engine shutdown occurs after 10 minutes, but the vehicle may be remotely started as many times as you wish for an additional 10 minutes.
Remote starters are convenient, inexpensive and easy to install. You can install a remote starter for your car yourself. It’s a great upgrade, inexpensive and a project you can do yourself with simple tools and the supplied wiring diagram. A car or truck equipped with a remote start system will fetch a higher re-sale value than a vehicle without one. A remote starter can be a very good selling point that will give a car owner leverage and reason to ask for a higher trade-in value from a car dealer.
