Buying a remote starter is a logical decision. Here at Kingpin Car & Marine Audio, we think it is a logical decision because it brings so much happiness to our clients. The first time anyone goes out to their vehicle after an installation and the vehicle is warmed up, they are thrilled. Once they realize they will never again have to scrape frost or ice off their windshield, we have a client for life.
But here is where you have to be careful. There is a common thought that a remote car starter install is easy. You can buy a remote starter at the auto parts store that comes with an instructional DVD and do it yourself, right? Yep, you sure can. Humor us for a few minutes while we discuss why you should have your remote starter installation done by experts.
Vehicle Electrical Systems Are Growing In Complexity
Let’s start with your electrical system. Modern vehicles use what is known as multiplex wiring. What that means to you is one wire can perform multiple functions on a modern vehicle. This was done to keep weight down. They also use networks known as CANBUS systems to allow many of the components in your vehicle to communicate with each other. That all sounds good, but what does it have to do with a remote start?
When you install a remote starter, you are doing major surgery on your vehicle’s electrical system, so the technician working on your vehicle (or you) had better be a lot more prepared than just having watched a DVD on a TV. If they don’t understand how the network in your vehicle operates, and how to network properly into it, you are going to end up with a damaged vehicle.
Let’s assume the best – that they get it installed, and it works. Then tomorrow, your vehicle won’t start. Who is going to run diagnostics on the remote starter? Your DVD-trained expert? Or maybe the guy at the local repair shop who decided to make a few bucks by installing some remote starters for people? Nope. You may have a problem.
Remote Starter Installation Is One Of Our Specialties
But there is good news. Having a remote starter installed by Kingpin Car & Marine Audio means you are getting a technician who is well-versed in modern electrical systems. CANBUS systems don’t intimidate us. We like them. When you know how to properly work with them, they make your life easier.
Here’s an analogy. You go to the doctor and find out that you need a knee replacement. Do you start asking around, trying to see if any of your buddies can fix your knee? Do you want to know who the cheapest orthopedic surgeon is? Of course not. You want the best. Since your vehicle is probably your second-biggest investment after your home, and you rely on it to get you to and from work, school, church, etc., do you really want to trust it to anyone other than an expert?
