Remote starters, cold weather etc.

Anyone have any luck with purchase/installation of remote auto starters? Just looking for pros and cons, are they a diy job? or should they be left to the pros? Any brands worth noting? I'm thinking of winters in NE OH, but I'm sure they would work just the same in hot climates to cool cars as well. any suggestions,...

They are great!

Whether or not it's a DIY job is questionable. It requires alot of wiring splicing and schematic reading.

I know if you get one through Crutchfield or similiar, they usually send you good directions on how to install.

Most remote starters are for automatic transmissions, but they do sell them for standards as well.

Weather has no effect on the system so it doesn't matter where you live.

They are safe too, so someone can't get into your car and take off in it when you remote started it. If the gas or brake pedal is touched, the vehicle will shut off.

Just remember, you get what you pay for.

Keeping in mind I'm not Mr. Electronics, I'd have to say let them install it
Well worth it IMO

Other than that, I'd say go for it
No cons off-hand, except that you might start it accidentally while your in the mall and waste some
(they turn off after 10-15 min though)
