Where do I start when looking for a reputable shop? Do I just call shops in the yellow pages and ask questions? Shameless plug for my e-book which educates you on how to buy a remote car starter and find the right facility.
I see that Lincoln has a remote start for this vehicle, is it better to get the factory one, or would i be better off with a different brand? From our experience, quality aftermarket remote starters will offer much better range than those that are factory installed.
5 Remote Car Starters that Work with Any Vehicle - Safewise
I understand now that it is not the range that is important, but the power. Please advise. My car is parked in the back of my apartment building, through brick and I cannot see it. There are way too many variables to advise on this.
When in doubt, always buy more power than you think you will need. Realising that there is not advantage to starting your car more than 30 seconds on very cold winters, I removed the fuses and unplugged the remote starter to prevent additional power draw on my battery. I would be interested in knowing more and where you got your information from. It is a shame that you are not going to be able to enjoy your remote car starter as thousands of other folks do every day. Thanks for your information, very helpful. Still your article is very helpful.

I had a remote start installed on my Mazda 3. It starts and then dies. Doing this has caused me to need a jump 4 times. Took it back and of course it worked then. Manual says 3 seconds but they guy told me to hold it down for 5. So after that I could get it to work maybe 1 out of 5 tries.

Hubby is taking it back again today. I was told by my nephew who is a body guy and also a dealership salesman said the did not work for them. I went to Audio Works of Cincinnati and got an estimate and assured me the put them in Chevy Cruzes all the time. Can you help me. I own a Toyota Camry. I had my car starter installed professionally 6 months ago not by Toyota.
I just started using it during the cold weather a month ago. In order to get it started I had to press the remote several times and in frustration just held the remote down until it finally started. I planned to bring it back to the installer. Sunday when I got into my car and started it manually I noticed the engine light flickering on and off so I planned to call Toyota the next day.
When I got on the highway the car would not accelerate properly and the car started to shake. I had the car towed to my Toyota dealer. I can only assume that all this has something to do with the wiring on the starter. Have you ever experienced anything like this? Anita, I had a similar problem in my 98 Toyota Sienna. My remote starter had been installed for a number of years with trouble free service. The installer wrapped some of the wires with electrical tape instead of heat shrink. Over the years moisture seeped into the wiring harness, causing one of the wires to short to ground.
My neighbourhood auto shop spent many hours trying to locate the problem. The whole affair cost me a small fortune in towing and fault-finding for an easy wiring repair. The company that installed my starter went out of business, but after the fix, my starter gave me many more years of trouble free service. Good luck.
I completely understand your situation and how that could have happened. However, I want to clarify a few things so as to not give readers the wrong impression. There are many kinds of electric tape. If the installer is using a quality tape such as 3M Super 33, and applies it properly there is a right and wrong way you should never have this issue. We have starters on the road for better part of 20 years and the harnesses look like they did when we installed them. 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. This could be any number of things and may not be related to the remote starter. We have seen tach wires not attached properly and shorting out on the manifold or other parts of the engine compartment. Thank you for doing this and taking the time to inform people. I could have very well made several of these mistakes that you posted for people not to make. Over the last twenty or thirty years, Betta fish have turn into increasingly well-liked pets in not only the Usa where there reputation of late has genuinely boomed but additionally around the globe.
Our finned friends have begun to catch on big-time, but many people do not even know where these little guys came from. The colorful, wonderful fish we preserve as pets now have a history, and what a history it is.
Car Security & Remote Start
Have I got you curious? Able to discover the mysteries behind that beauty swimming back and forth in his ten galllon tank on your desk? Alright, here we go! I would appreciate any feedback. Thanks, JC. I had a remote car starter installed a few years ago and it worked like a charm. Then, I had some body work done on my Camry and the car battery was close to dying. I tried my remote car starter and although the light on the remote seem to work, the car will not automatically start.
What do you suggest I do? One of my friends got one, and it would only work if he was about 20 feet away! I can start my car from my house in the winter so it will be warm by time I get in! I live about miles from you in La Grande, Oregon. Do you know of a dealer close you would recommend? I can appreciate the kind of business person you are.
Wish we had more like you.
