Cheap remote car starter

Design Tech Remote Car Starter
It’s not exactly warm these days, it is winter after all. That’s not bad if your in your nice house that is at a comfortable 72 degrees, but if you have to walk out to your each morning it’s not going to be so lovely. Instead, the seats are going to be freezing and it’ll be 10 minutes before the heater is ready to do its job. You could have someone run out in the cold to start it for you or you could do it yourself. Don’t be silly, I didn’t mean you yourself would run outside to do it, you’d have it done automatically with the Design Tech Remote Car Starter.

The remote starter will replace your existing key fob. All you do is push a button on the remote and your car will be started within a 1000 foot range. Obviously, security features are a must have with this device. You can’t just have your car running outside waiting for someone to drive off with it. In order to start remotely, the car must be in park, and in order for the car to stay on when you put it into drive, the key needs to be in the ignition, otherwise it’ll switch itself off. Although I’ve never done the installation myself, it’s supposedly easy. No wiring/rewiring is involved and an instructional video is included. The only requirement is that you have a fuel-injected, automatic car.

The whole package, which is 2 fobs to remotely start and unlock/lock your car, the starter module, and the video, only runs you $90. Pick this one up for anyone who absolutely hates the cold, or even for someone who hates the heat in the summer.

Hate to break it to ya, but there is some wiring involved. Not too bad, but you will need to make some connections to the ignition wires.

would it be possible to purchase the remote car start and would it be possible to get it delivered to ireland?

If you install one of these and your car dies is there a possibility you can put it in a different car, or is it one of those things that once you program it for one car it cannot be switched over?

Since some wiring is involved with the ignition, I would probably have to ask my dealership to install for me. How much do they usually charge, ballpark?

the dealer will never be the cheapest, nor best place to have a auto-start added. Most big box stereo stores have installation available. Some independant car audio places will offer it too- just be careful- some of them might not still be in business the next time you need them… then again- the same goes for the big box stores too.
