Diesel engines continue to grow in popularity, and we see more and more of them at Kingpin Car & Marine Audio. As you can imagine, when we are in consultation appointments with our clients, we will discuss many different products that can be added to their vehicles. When the topic of a remote starter comes up, we often hear the following statement: “My vehicle is a diesel. I can’t get a diesel remote starter.”
That is not true. The good news is that we can safely remote start your diesel engine vehicle, and the benefits are greater than with gasoline vehicles.
Our Remote Starter Systems Work On Gasoline AND Diesel Engines
You may be asking yourself how we can start your diesel vehicle, since diesels are very different than the gasoline models. Well, you are right about the differences, but diesels are something we embrace, not avoid. Our systems are designed to start both engine types properly, and we flash our data modules that communicate with the vehicle with specific software for your engine type. When you couple that with the fact that our technicians are experts in modern vehicle electronics, you have nothing to worry about.
Diesel Engines Benefit From Longer Warm-Up Times
Now that you know you can get a remote start for your diesel, here are those benefits for you. As you know, your diesel engine takes longer to warm up than a gasoline one, so remote starting your vehicle will get you warmer a lot faster, as well as defrost those windows for you. Wouldn’t it be nice to know that scraping ice off windows is a distant memory? Now it can be.
Remote Starter Systems Can Increase Diesel Engine Efficiency
It gets even better. Have you noticed that, when you first start your diesel, it doesn’t have as much power until the engine warms up? You are experiencing that because a diesel engine thrives on heat in the combustion chamber. Once your engine warms up, it runs more efficiently. This means is that remote starting your diesel engine vehicle every day of the year – not just in the winter time – is a good idea. Now, when you get into it, your engine will be warmed up and operating at peak efficiency. How cool is that?
Turbo-Timers Extend The Life Of Diesel Turbos
Modern diesel engines use turbochargers to increase efficiency, which spin at speeds up to 100,000 rpm. That’s a lot! When you pull into a parking spot and instantly shut off the engine, your turbocharger bearings do not have an opportunity to cool down, and the life expectancy may drop. People may have told you that giving your vehicle a short cool-down period is good for it if you have been running it hard. Kingpin Car & Marine Audio can install a turbo timer function for your remote starter, eliminating the need for that cool-down period. You simply pull into a parking spot, set the emergency brake and wait a few seconds before turning off the engine. You will notice that the engine keeps running. You simply get out of the vehicle and lock the doors. Your engine will shut off two minutes later, and your turbocharger is a happy camper.
