What is the difference between a 1-way and 2-way remote starter?

A 2-way remote starter sends a signal back to the remote after you push the start button, to confirm that the vehicle has in fact started. The remote will typically beep, or flash, or show an icon confirming that the engine is running. This is a great feature to have if you can’t make visual contact with the vehicle after you push the start button, so you know if the engine is running or not.

A 1-way remote does not provide this type of feedback.

Are remote starters suitable for manual (stick-shift) transmission vehicles?

Yes, although more costly and time consuming to install, it is perfectly safe to install a remote starter in a manual transmission vehicle. There will be inherent safeties built in to the system to ensure the vehicle can only be remote started if it’s in neutral.

What is a bypass module?

A bypass module, also known as an immobilizer/data interface, is a piece of hardware that typically works in conjunction with the remote starter to ensure that the remote starter functions properly in a particular vehicle. The module may be more specific to your make and model vehicle, whereas the remote starter hardware may be universal for almost any vehicle. For some vehicles, a bypass module alone will function as both a bypass module and remote starter.

Most vehicles manufactured after the mid 2000’s will require a bypass module.

Can a remote starter be un-installed, and used in another vehicle?

Yes any remote starter system can always be removed from your vehicle. Depending on the type of remote starter, the type of bypass module, and the type of vehicle, it may or may not be suitable to be re-used in another vehicle.

Can I use my existing factory key fob to remote start the vehicle?

For many makes and models the answer is yes. Some vehicles will require a separate remote fob. Call or email for vehicle specific information.

Will the vehicle remain locked while the engine is running?


What happens if I remote start the vehicle and forget to turn it off?

Every remote start system has an adjustable run time (usually about 15 minutes), after which the vehicle will shut off by itself if you haven’t already gotten into the car and driven it.
