I have all of my car equipped with remote starters and have had
it on serveral cars over the years. I had them installed at the
dealership to save with warranty problems with aftermarket stuff
but I have never had a problem. Great for winter, here in the
northeast but even better in summer to cool a hot car. If your
car does not have automatic climate control you must remember to
set the HVAC system to where you want it to be when you will be
starting the vehicle.

Mine is installed in a 1988 Delta 88 in such a fashion that it uses
current through the heater fan blower circuit to trigger the car
starter relay. Now I'm having troubles with the fan losing
connection and when hitting a bump restarting. And I'm in Canada
where it's important.
Turns out the copper connection used for power and the low speed are
green instead of copper due ot the heat of the current being put
through that circuit. This overheating is on both the blade part
which is part of the heater control head and the connecter.
Granted it's three and a half years later but this is an unintended
consequence of having a remote car starter and how the techs wired it
up. Mind you it's not the techs fault as I'm sure they're just
following instructions. It's the mfr fault.
Hello, I have installed it on a 89 dodge dynasty. I'm not where happy
with it since i donot feel the car is warmer (inside) when i walked in.
I think it is good to run the car earlier so you donot need to heat up
the enigne. Try to get a longer range ones with 4 bottons if you can.
At one time i observed flaw with it but it happened just one time.on
this specific case, eventough the car started up fine, it cranked
again. I tried to repeat this many other times and it did not happen
PS: be sure they connected right,and your fan works if you left the car
running. check it. (there are more than one accessory cables and you
need to decide which one is fan, blower motor). Initially i connected
it to radio instead of fan. (i know it is not very wise)
It is cool to keep the car runnign when you leave it for aobut 5-10
minutes. otherwise it cools down very fast when you have teen
