Beginning in around 1996-98 some cars began coming with anti-theft systems which prevented the car from starting unless the right key was in the ignition. In the last few years most (but not all) vehicles have these anti-theft systems. Obviously, when you install a remote start on these vehicles, the car isn’t going to start unless you trick the car into thinking it “sees” the right key in the ignition or the right “electronic code” in its circuitry. This is done with devices called immobilizer bypass modules, transponder bypass kits, or passlock interface modules. These specialized parts and their installation are required for the remote start to work in these vehicles though now some remote starts are coming with the modules included with the remote start. Depending on the device, immobilizer bypass modules & interface modules range in price from $49.99 to around $160 installed. When we quote you a remote start price installed we normally include the cost of the interface module if one is needed. However we don’t always know whether your car needs one or which module it needs without checking the vehicle or tech notes. Sometimes the vehicle may have to be inspected by us at our store at the time you want to make your purchase.
Sometimes two car keys may be required to program these devices during remote start installation. This is particularly true with some Ford vehicles. Check with us on your vehicle’s requirements. If two keys are required, we can’t proceed with the install without them.
There are many different types of remote start interface parts. Each car manufacturer requires different anti-theft software depending on the vehicle’s year and model. Bypass modules now available are programmable through the module manufacturer’s website for the latest software for the particular vehicle. As an example, a 2010 Chevy Impala takes different software or even a different interface module than a 2015 Silverado. Sometimes one module can cover many different makes and vehicles. Other times different interface modules are necessary. We stock the different interface modules for most vehicles so you can have your remote start installed today, so you don’t have to wait! We carry the latest interface modules from the three biggest manufacturers: Fortin, iDatalink , & DEI XpressKit. We have what it takes to install a Remote Start for you today!
How Important Is Installation: When you are shopping for remote starts and car alarms, installation is critical. On today’s computerized vehicles it takes exact technical information, proper interface modules programmed with the correct software and experience and skill to know what to do. Each make, model and year can be different.
