Each year, we install hundreds of remote start systems. Here we have compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions ...

Remote Start FAQs

Q. Will a Remote Start System void my new car warranty?
A. NO.
  We install remote start systems for many of the area car dealerships. When properly installed, today’s remote start systems are fully compatible with the complex electronic systems in newer vehicles.  Federal Law prevents an auto manufacturer from voiding a new car warranty because you chose to have non-factory accessories installed.  For more info, Google Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act of 1975.

Q. How long will it take?
Installation time varies greatly from vehicle to vehicle.  Please make arrangements to leave your vehicle with us for an entire day. 

Q. What should I bring with me?
 Please bring two ignition keys that will both start the vehicle.  Many of the interface modules require two keys for programming.

QMy car is a stick shift.  Can you install a Remote Start?
  We have remote starts designed to work safely on stick shifts.  There is a small additional charge for stick shift vehicles.

Q.  I have a diesel engine.  Can you install a Remote Start?
A.  YES!
  We have remote starts designed for diesels.  When you activate your remote start, it will wait for the glow plugs or manifold heaters to turn off before it attempts to start. 

QMy key has a chip in it.  Can you install a Remote Start?
AYES!  We have the proper bypass module for almost all vehicles. These bypass modules are only activated when you remote start your vehicle. So, when you vehicle is sitting in a parking lot, the factory anti-theft system is still fully functional. Caution .. Many shops will bypass the factory anti-theft system all together to save a little work!

Q. My vehicle has a push-button start (Smart Key).  Can you install a remote start?
A. YES!  For most Smart-Key / push-button start vehicles, we are able to install a remote start.  There is a small additional charge for these vehicles.

Q. How long will my vehicle stay running?
The run time is programmable. Please speak to your salesperson for more details.

Q. Can somebody take my car while it is remote started?
A. NO.  If your car is locked, it will remain locked.  The steering wheel and shifter (automatic trans) will also stay locked.  Most importantly, you must insert your key in the ignition before you can drive away.  If anyone attempts to drive away without the key in the ignition, the engine will shut off as soon as you put your foot on the brake pedal.

QHow much will I save if I install it myself?
 Because of the complex nature of Remote Start Systems, we do not offer them for sale without installation.

To the staff of Premier Audio, I just wanted to drop you a quick note and thank you for the professional service you provided as we built and decided on an entertainment system throughout our home. I thought I had everything figured out until I had my first walk through with your staff, boy was I mistaken! From my sound system throughout the house to the theater system in my basement…. you went beyond all of my expectations. I have to admit I am not the most electronically inclined…. However your staff took the extra time to teach me how to get the most out of my system after the installation. I have referred a friend who also built a house and will continue telling people about your great product and exceptional service. If you ever have a prospective client who would like to talk to one of your clients… please feel free to give them my name and phone number….. You deserve the credit! Thanks to your entire team!
