What is a Responding (2-Way) Remote Starter?

Responding 2-way remote starters provide visual and audible confirmation for successful commands, leaving no doubt that your car will be warmed up and ready to go when you are. Only one transmitter in each package is responding, the other is a backup remote with half the range.

Once you enjoy the convenience and peace of mind of a 2-way remote car starter, you'll never go back!


Each vehicle is uniquely different. For example, certain vehicle platforms like subarus have higher labor/work time, & others such as VW, Audi, Mercedes Benz or BMW may need a specifically engineered system for remote start integration.  Manual transmission vehicles always an additional fee.

We have included pictures of the optional remotes as the pandemic has limited some of the parts availability.  1-Button or 4 Button Remotes, as well as which brand solution will be determined by our install team.  The remote starter integrates seamlessly with either a universal installation harness or a vehicle-specific "factory fit" harness* when compatible.

Compustar (1-Button) & NuStart (4-Button) are from Firstech Electronics

AstroStart & Python are both from Directed Electronics (both have 1 & 4-Button options)

Both manufacturers offer a wide range of similiar but sometime unique “T” Harness solutions for select makes, providing seamless integration in most vehicles, without splicing or soldering wires. We will select the best option for you.

Lifetime Installation Warranty, 1 Year Remote Transmitter Warranty.

Frequently Asked Questions for Remote Starters

Does having a remote start void my factory warranty?

It absolutely does not. Consumers are protected by Federal Law called the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act of 1974 which says that a manufacturer cannot void a customer’s warranty unless the part causes a malfunction of the problem in question. For example, if U-Haul installs a trailer hitch to your vehicle and they wire the part into the brake lights which causes them to fail, then the manufacturer would not responsible for the repair. However, if you have a remote start installed, and an unrelated item fails, the manufacturer must honor the vehicle warranty.

Can the systems be removed and reinstalled into a new car?

Yes, in some cases they can. Remote starters can be installed in about 95% of vehicles on the road today. Keep in mind that since it is a new vehicle, that different parts may be required, and additional labor may be required to complete the installation.

Shouldn't I just get a remote start from the dealer?

Most dealers do not install remote starters themselves, in fact, they have an outside company do it for them. The installation often takes place in the parking lot of the dealer, and by someone whom you have never met. Also, in the event that the remote start may need servicing, you often need to make an all-day appointment just to have it looked at. Even just for a remote battery, your car may be tied up for an entire day.

At AutoDV8ions we are always here ready to serve you. Recently manufacturers have started offering remote starters as original equipment. Often these starters perform poorly, offering low range and no choices of remote transmitters. An aftermarket remote start can go much further and give you greater performance at a much lower price.

How long does it take to have a remote start installed?

The average length of time is 2-4 hours. However, we ask our customers to leave the vehicle for one business day. Winter is our busiest time of year and we may have many appointments in a single day. The longer we have your car, the more efficient we can be in delivering everyone's car in a timely manner. If you need specific time arrangements please let us know in advance or while setting up your appointment.

Do you offer gift certificates? And can I shop from home?

Yes. We have pre-printed remote start specific gift certificates available. You select the system and we do the rest. If you would like to purchase one from the convenience of home or office we can certainly accommodate you. Call 814-201-2456 and a salesperson will go over your options. We can mail you the gift certificate.
