Myths About Remote Start Systems

Even though it may not seem like it, fall is about to begin. Even with summer hanging around, cooler temperatures will be coming soon enough. Once fall and winter are in full swing, you’ll be grateful for that remote start system you so carefully selected and installed. But if you’re not sure about why you should get a remote start system, you might get confused. Here are some myths about remote start systems to ignore.

Remote Start Systems Void the Warranty

This myth is just that, a myth. In fact, many dealers will have third-party companies install a remote start system into their vehicles. These systems are more commonly found in newer automobiles. However, keep in mind that poor-quality products and installations can affect your vehicle’s warranty. Make sure the best parts are used along with the most proven installation techniques – all of which you can trust Trick Trucks to provide you.

They Harm the Engine

This myth is also false. On colder days, it benefits the car if the engine has some time to warm up first. The oil in your car’s engine can congeal and thicken in cold weather. Adding heat will keep the oil from freezing. Not only is the oil thinner in a preheated engine, but it also keeps the drivetrain in good shape, helping it to last longer.

I Can Install Them Myself

Yep, this is another false myth. Unless you know what you’re doing, this is one DIY project you shouldn’t attempt. Even if you are confident in your abilities, you should still rely on the expertise of the professionals here at Trick Trucks. If you don’t know what you’re doing, you could end up doing some serious damage to your car or truck. After all, every vehicle will have a complicated internal electrical system.

A Manual Transmission Means I Can’t Do It

No matter what type of transmission your vehicle has, you can still install a remote start system. Whether it’s a manual transmission or an automatic one, bring your truck down today!

I’ve Got a Diesel Engine, So I Can’t Do It Either

Even if you have a diesel engine, you can still get a remote start system installed. In fact, it might even be better for your engine this way. Diesel engines will take much longer to warm up in cold weather than normal engines, so if your truck has a diesel engine, you should consider the benefits of a remote start system.
