More and more vehicles these days are started with push to start buttons instead of a key. The advantage is that you can keep your fob in your pocket or push and just get in and go. Many of our customers have questioned the ability to install remote car starters on these types of vehicles. The good news is that you can remote start the vast majority of push to start vehicles in a safe and secure manner. Let’s explore how this works.
Extreme Audio Installs Remote Starters on Push To Start Vehicles
On all of our systems you remote start your vehicle the same way as the key type systems. You either push a button on your new remote control or launch the app on your Smartphone. The difference is what happens when you go out to your vehicle. There are three common takeover procedures. Think of a takeover procedure as a means to taking control back from the remote start.
- You will walk out to your vehicle and unlock your door. Upon entering your vehicle, you will depress your push to start button just like you would to start the engine normally. When put your foot on the brake to take the vehicle out of park, the vehicle control is passed back to you and you just drive away.
- You will walk out to the vehicle and unlock your door. When your door opens, the engine will shut off. You simply get in the vehicle and start your car as you normally would, and drive it away.
- You walk out to your vehicle and unlock your door. You will simply get in it and drive away, not needing to push a button in the vehicle or restart the engine. Pressing the break to put the vehicle in gear, deactivates the remote starter.
The good news is that all 3 methods are simple. The important thing to understand is that we do not get to decide which way your car is going to work, as it is decided by the car manufacturer. At Extreme Audio, we will go over the takeover procedure with you when you pick up your vehicle and will make sure you are completely comfortable with the operation before you leave.
