  Answers to Frequently Asked Questions . . .

1.) Your Factory Warranty - No the Ravelco does NOT void your warranty. If a car dealer tells you this, they are breaking a Federal Law.

2.) The Ravelco comes standard with 2 plugs. You may purchase extra plugs for $75 each. Please let us know if you want extra plugs with your installation so we can bring them with us. (This will save you the freight charge down the line.) All you need is 2 plugs but most customers order an extra one.

3.) Please visit our installation page to see where the Ravelco will be mounted in your vehicle. The Ravelco is mounted in the most accessible and secure place available in your vehicle. We will not custom install the Ravelco in any other location except where it is supposed to be.  

4.) All of our installers are employed by and work only for Ravelco. Each installer has many years experience installing Ravelcos. You will be happy!

**********MOST IMPORTANT**********

PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ANSWER YOUR PHONE ON THE MORNING OF YOUR INSTALLATION - PLEASE, NO VOICE MAILS! If our installers cannot reach you, they will not show up and you will have to reschedule. Please remember to keep your phone with you.  

Please do not forget any of the above 6 items and email this information to:   install@ravelco.com


We will then send you a reply email, confirming the date and time or agree on another date and time for your installation. This email will accompany an attached sales invoice from us, that is to be paid when we are finished installing your Ravelco. You must reply to the confirmation email that we will send you ASAP stating that everything is correct on the invoice and that you acknowledge the appointment date and time. If we do not receive a confirmation email from you in a timely manner we cannot schedule your installation and you will have to call to re-schedule. Thank God - we are very busy and we fill up our time slots very quickly. Some customers do not pay attention to this part and forget to confirm, so when our installers do not show up for the installation the customer calls us upset and wondering where we are and why they now have to reschedule. To avoid this confusion please answer our email.   

If at all possible please do not start or drive the vehicle 1 hour before our installers arrive to perform your installation. Some engines get very hot and it is much easier to work on a cool vehicle and engine. 

Attention customers with older or stolen/recovered vehicles – Please be sure your vehicle will start and is in a condition for us to install a Ravelco. We can only install and test a Ravelco on vehicles that will start and run. (Sometimes our installers arrive at a customer’s location only to find that the vehicle has parts missing from the dash or will not start because of something else.) We will not install a Ravelco on a vehicle that won’t run. If you are still working on your vehicle, please have it finished and running before you schedule us to come out.

Attention new vehicle owners - If possible, you should have us install the Ravelco in your vehicle FIRST before you install any other electronic accessory, computer chips, aftermarket lights, or window tint, etc. The reason for this is, when we are finished installing your Ravelco, your vehicle is EXACTLY the same way it was when you purchased it and the EXACT same way it was when it left the factory. Nothing will be changed and nothing will be moved whatsoever. Unfortunately, most other aftermarket companies and accessory shops do not do the same precision type work we do and sometimes they install items not caring or taking into consideration if the vehicle is ever going to be serviced or worked on in the future.

One last thing - Your Ravelco Anti Theft Device comes with two windows stickers (shown below). The Ravelco installer will apply these to the front driver's side and front passenger's side windows of your vehicle. The RAVELCO window stickers really do work, as a thief will not even waste their time if they see a RAVELCO warning sticker on your vehicle. If you decide to have your vehicle's windows tinted - Be sure to demand to the person who is applying your window tint to tint OVER the Ravelco window stickers. The reason for this is, if the sticker is put on after the tint is applied, the Ravelco warning window sticker will not be visible at night. Do not let the company or the person tinting your windows tell you that they will not warrant the tint if they tint over the window stickers. Nothing will happen to the tint, it will not bubble if it is done correctly. This is done all the time with no problems at all. If they cannot do it, find another tinter. 

So, if possible please let us install your Ravelco first. 

Thank You Very Much
