Any car remote start/security installers here?? - November 10, 2014, 09:23 AM

So after lying to myself for years I am seriously going to finally invest in a damn remote starter/security system and I am NOT going for that BestBuy garbage.

I have found the system I am wanting but trying to decide if anyone here on the board has experience with installations of this sort of thing.



For some ODD reason, Bestbuy has this system w/o the second 2-way remote for $550 which is just stupid when I can buy the newest model with both 2-way remotes for $144 Amazon shipped.


So if anyone knows someone...please let me know. Else I may just take on the feat myself.

Do you still have to give a donor key?


Yeah I am old enough to know better. Thing is, I just don't care.

Back when they came out with the keys with the microchips in them, you use to have to buy a little magic box that was inline with the remote start that would be hidden in the car someplace. One of the keys that you have goes in that box to aid in the remote start process.

Ah interesting. Luckily my car doesn't have the chip in the key. Basic old key and keyring fob.

My Wife's 2000 Honda Accord did and that was the deal breaker for the remote start. I would have had to pay Honda and hours labor plus 75.00 for the key.

Yep..fug dat.

I been talking about it since buying my car back in 2007.

i believe mine is pretty straight forward. 2007 Hyundai Sonata. I dont think its anything that should hinder a basic install.

You don't have to give up a key anymore. There's a transponder chip in almost all keys nowadays. If the car doesn't read the transponder when you turn the key, it won't allow you to start it. You used to have to give up a key to have remote start installed. The key would be put in a box under the dash, and a wire with a loop at the end would go from the box then wrap around the key cylinder. When the remote start was activated, it would send the signal from the key in the box through the loop around the ignition. That would make the car think the key was in the ignition, and it would start.

Now there are programmable CAN modules that wire into the car and simulate the signal from your transponder chip when you remote start the car. No more key in a box, unless it's a new car that they haven't cracked the code on yet.

So dave...are you ordering and installing or should I order the one I want and you install it? Which ever is best and cheapest of course.

As you can see I am liking the compustar CS7102-AS.

I will shoot you a email now.
