Start System that actually comes standard with your
vehicle is a
very nice and convenient extra. But, please understand
that with this remote start system you are throwing whatever
you have out the window. The reason is, your vehicle
can still be scanned and not only disarmed and unlocked
like the regular remote alarm systems, but with this
remote start system your vehicle can now also be
Anti Theft Device will
not work with any Remote Start System.
(factory or aftermarket) The only way that a vehicle fitted with a Ravelco
Anti Theft Device will work with a remote starter system is by leaving the Ravelco plug
in the Ravelco unit installed in their vehicle - thus defeating any security whatsoever.
If you have the factory remote start button on your
keyless entry control that came from the factory with
your vehicle you are fortunate. The problem is on the
vehicles that have the aftermarket remote start systems
installed because the installer/company of the remote start system will have to bypass your
factory security system that comes standard with your vehicle in order for a
non factory remote start to work correctly.
Time tested has shown us that unless your vehicle
actually comes from the factory with a remote starter, you will have problems
with it. Most if not all are made overseas very cheaply and constantly have
problems. Most installers ruin
you vehicle's wiring while installing these systems. Many problems arise from
these systems. Beware!!!
receive many requests on Ravelco installations in very
cold below zero areas. After finding out that
their remote start will not work with a Ravelco
installed some people have chose not to install the
Ravelco. They say that because of the extreme cold they
had to have and use the remote start capabilities.
Sadly, the same customer will contact us at a later date
requesting the Ravelco to be installed on the their new
vehicle. During the installation, we find out that their
last truck was stolen.
You need to make a choice - do
you want to keep your vehicle from being stolen or do you want to be able start
your vehicle from your house? Some people think this is cool having their vehicle
start while it is sitting there by itself in the parking lot . . . but they
won't think this way for long when they come out one day and their vehicle is
gone because it was started remotely by a thief! The choice is yours.
