Have you thought about adding a remote starter to your car? Investing in a remote starter is a move you won’t likely regret. However, it’s not DIY project to be taken lightly. Without the proper knowledge and tools, it’s really better off left to the professionals; unless you want to risk serious damage to your vehicle and personal safety, let alone risk a huge waste of your valuable time.
Reasons to Get Professional Installation for Your Remote Starter
- Complex Systems: Modern vehicles use multiplex wiring systems, which means that one wire may control multiple functions in a vehicle. This is important to know because if the car senses any abnormality in the wiring it will issue a fault code, which is not good. Many vehicles also use a Can-Bus system to allow the different modules in the vehicle to communicate with each other. When a BUS system sees anything out of the ordinary, it throws a fault code. Everyone has experienced frustration when dealing with computers before. You run those same risks if you try to install your own remote starter.
- It’s Extremely Tough To Fix A Botched Install: A modern remote starter communicates over the BUS network by using a data module that gets programmed with software common to that vehicle. Say you try to install a remote starter system yourself. When you get into your vehicle and get stumped, or you find out that you need to make a software revision on your module, what will you do? The internet is a very powerful tool, but the chance of fixing a botched remote starter install with the internet is slim. What can make matters more interesting is that a wrong connection could set off a variety of lights in your dash.
- Messing Up The Installation Will Void The Warranty: While a quality, properly installed remote starter will not void your warranty, it can be very easy to make a mistake if you’re not experienced. Sometimes even the smallest slips or misreads can cause damage that will cost you.
