Installation of aftermarket electronics will not void your a vehicle's warranty. The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act of 1975 protects consumers from a manufacturer voiding a warranty simply because aftermarket products are installed.
Mobile Edge offers very high quality remote car starters that will work on most manual transmission vehicles. Our technicians are skilled and highly trained in the safe and secure installation of remote car starters on vehicles with a stick shift.
The short answer to the question is no. The long answer is that this is not the right way to approach a remote car starter installation. As a rule, you ALWAYS want to have your remote starter installed at the same place that you purchase it. Please take a moment to read the post that we wrote on this very subject.
At Mobile Edge, we do things differently. We have since the day we opened and this is part of the reason that we have survived this long! One of the things that we do differently is to schedule "days" and not "times." ALL of our appointments are for the day. Everyone is asked to have their vehicle at our shop before or around the time we open. We promise to make every attempt to have the installation completed on the scheduled day. We NEVER promise a specific time of completion. During busy periods, we are at the shop long into the evening finishing work. We do this to ensure quality. Our technicians know that they will be working until the jobs are done. If they were trying to meet a deadline of, say 4pm, they would feel pressured to rush to meet that deadline. Nobody wins in a situation like this... Not the installer, not the shop and not the customer. For this reason, we require every customer to commit their vehicle to us for the ENTIRE DAY. This is our way of ensuring quality and is part of the reason that we are known throughout the US for the professional work that we produce.
The cost of a remote starter can vary drastically from vehicle to vehicle. We can provide you with a good faith estimate if you click on this link and answer the questions as accurately as possible.
Perhaps.... And perhaps not. We will never be able to asses the ability of our customers to do a quality job. What we can tell you is that a remote car starter in a modern vehicle is a complicated installation. We have all types of test equipment, online support and dealer phone support available to us. Much of this is not available to the public. It is important that you understand that one mistake on today's vehicles can be thousands of dollars in repairs. It is for this reason that Mobile Edge sells their remote car starters installed only. We do not offer them for sale over the counter.
A transponder key is a key that communicates with the vehicle. In most cases, the key sends out a low level signal to the vehicle as an added layer of security. These keys need to be programmed by a dealer to function properly. We explain transponder keys in detail in this post.
When installing a remote starter it is important to understand that the unit must duplicate EVERY function of the key and it's interaction with the ignition switch. In addition to energizing the right wires at the right time, the remote starter must also fool the vehicle into believing that the transponder signal is present. We do this with the addition of a device called a transponder bypass.
My car doesn't have a key. I simply press a button to start my vehicle. Can you still install a remote car starter?
Absolutely! While a "Push to Start" system is sometimes more complicated and requires additional parts and labor, it is something that we can handle professionally.
You can add a whole host of security and convenience features to a remote car starter. We've detailed many of them out in this post.
Yes, this can be done, but it does not always make financial sense. We cover this topic in great detail in this post.
