Remote Starters Facts
Q. Does a remote car starter void my warranty?
A. No. You the consumer are protected under the Magnuson-Moss Act. The federal government mandates that an auto dealer or manufacturer cannot void a warranty due to the installation of any aftermarket accessory. Remember, it is your car – you pay for it.
Q. What is a factory Anti-Theft System?
A. Many newer vehicles come standard with an anti-theft system that prevents the vehicle from being “hotwired.” Some systems are built primarily into the ignition, while some have key-based systems.
Q. What is a Vehicle Interface?
A. To install a remote starter into a vehicle with an anti-theft system, we must install an interface that allows the remote starter to start and the vehicle not “think” it is being stolen. In rare instances, it may require a working ignition key be placed inside the interface.
