Remote Starters for Cars

A remote starter for cars works by sending a radion signal to a reciever placed inside the car. When you hit a button on your remote, the car will start its engine. If on a freezing winter morning you left your heater on when you turned off the vehicle, hitting the remote button will start the vehicles engine and the heater will warm up your car before you get in.

Also, on a hot summerday if you left the aircondition in "on" mode, the sytem can cool down the car for you, so you don't have to get inside and feel like you're being burned alive (if you know what I mean). However, not all remote starters for cars are of the same good quality and not all of them have the functions you might need.

Some have problems with short ranges, some may try to start the car when the engine is already running which is not good for your engine. If you have kids you might want to be sure there is a security option preventing your kids from starting the vehicle.

How to Find the Best Remote Starters for Cars

First of all, before buying your remote starter check the signal range, it's not equal in all remote starters.If you have kids you might want to find a remote starter system which you can program so that you'll have to push two buttons at the same time in order to start the car.

Recently a kid in Norway accidently started a car and it ran straight into to the ocean. The kid was laying for 45 minutes in the cold sea but miracolously survived. So be careful and consider this option.

Next, if your car's engine is already runnning and you accidently hit the button on your remote, you don't want the car to make an attempt of starting it again, thus making a "lovely" sound which is not healthy for your engine. Many car's remote starters are programmed to check if the engine is already running before they attempt to start it. Make sure yours will be as well.

Other Important Aspects of a Remote Starter for Your Vehicle

Here are a few other things you might want to look for in a remote starter before buying it for your vehicle.

  • Visual confirmation that your car is now starting, such as blinking with the lights
  • A pin switch for the hood. This will prevent the car from starting when the hood is open, thus protecting you if you're working on the car and someone accidently hits the starter
  • Installation is not necessarily simple. If you need help installing the remote starter system, ask the guy who will be installing it before buying. If you're installing the system yourself, read about the installation process before buying.

Don't just go for the cheapest remote system you can find

A remote starter for your car can greatly increase the quality of a freezing monday morning or a steaming hot summer afternoon, but it can also increase frustration. So make sure you find the remote starter suited for your needs and demands.

Do some research, don't buy the first and cheapest one you find. if you're reading this article chances are you put "remote starters cars" or something similar into your search engine. Try to look for independent reviews before buying, don't just go directly to the merchants website.

Compare different starters to each other, and if there is a specific remote starter created for your model, consider buying that one. Some brands with consistently good reviews over the years are Audiovox, Viper and Bulldog. Good luck in finding the perfect remote starter for your vehicle. Have a great summer.
