Pros and Cons of Installing a Remote Car Starter

Remote Car Starter
Imagine being able to get into your car without having to worry about the temperature inside? Now you can with a remote car starter!

The weather in Maryland can be harsh no matter what season it is. When you think you are finished fighting through the snow to get to your car, you suddenly realize that now you will have to fight off the heat waves coming off of your leather seats. Car owners just can’t win when it comes to the temperatures of their cars; unless they have a remote starter installed in their cars. But are they really worth having installed after-market in your car?

How They Work

In order to get an accurate picture of these modifications, you first must realize what they are. During installation, a module is installed that can easily access the connection to the ignition, power, starter, brake, and tachometer wires. When you press the button on the remote, it will send a signal to the module and turn on the car. It is relatively simple to install but must be done by a professional.

Pros of Remote Car Starters

The biggest pro of a remote car starter is being able to start your car from a distance. This can help your car heat up or cool down depending on what temperature you remember to set the thermostat. If your car is locked when you start the car, it will remain locked. This is so no one milling around the car will be able to steal it as it is heating up. The two-way communicator will confirm the car is still running or if it has stalled.

Cons of Remote Starters

One of the biggest cons of remote starters is the extras. Because it doesn’t come standard, car companies do not include this button on the existing car fob so your starter will come with an extra remote. There is also an added cost for the parts and installation that must be done at a profession like the technicians at Trick Trucks.

If you are looking for a modern convenience, this might be perfect gadget to have installed in your car. Remote starters are perfect for those east coast weather patterns that can change in the blink of an eye.
