remote start

  1. Audio, Electronics & Lighting
    Can the head lights be set to stay on while in remote start mode? I never know if the car is running or not during daytime remote starting. Every other car I have owned has either defaulted to parking lights or all lights on when remote started.

    So I had a remote starter put in my car and the idiot never hooked up the horn and he hooked the lights to the headlights so they only work when it is dark due to the auto headlamps. I am not taking it back because he is a friend of my father and I don't want to flip my sugar honey iced tea and...

    While troubleshooting why my remote starter would not work more than 5 inches from the car I pulled the remote start unit out of the car. I noticed that there are 6 DIP Switches on the remote starter device. Anyone know what they do? Perhaps one can make it so the car doesn't shut off when...

    Hi everyone, I'm brand new here with my first Accord purchased a couple days ago. During negotiations I asked for the Remote Start II system in order to replace the standard remote start. In the past I've had vehicles with two-way communication so I can be inside and know if it started, temp...

    Hey everyone, I just completed my remote start install on my 2011 Accord Sedan. The install went very smoothly following the instructions in the DBALL2 Install Guide for Type 1 (found here: https://www.directechs.com/DocumentDownload.aspx?d=9565&p=553&f=10103) Remote starts have been covered...

    My wife had Best Buy install a Viper 4115V1 Remote start on my 2005 Honda Accord EX V6. On cold mornings it wouldn't start. It will turn over the engine but it wouldn't crack long enough for it to start. I took it back to Best Buy and they attached the Tachometer wire but I don't think they...

    1st time post, and a lurker for a while. Looking for remote start options for my 2013 Accord EX-L with PTS smart key. I've read here the previous forum posts about how the OEM RS shuts the car off when the doors are touched to be opened. I understand that's a anti-theft feature, but I think I'll...

    Hello, I am new to the forums and needed some help. I have a 2013 EX 6MT with the Keyless Ignition system and all the bells and whistles. I am from the east coast and was considering putting in a remote start system for my car. I have had it for over a year and it drives like a dream. Could...

    So I recently got my first car (2007 honda accord v4 sedan) and I was wondering what kind of cheap-ish mods you guys would recommend. This is my first car so I don't have boatloads of money, but I do have some saved up. I would like stuff I can do myself from a YouTube video but it's not...

    I am considering adding the Remote Engine Start System II accessory at the dealer before picking up the new 2013 Accord, but neither I nor the dealer staff have actual experience in crucial operating characteristics. I was thinking this remote start device might mollify my wife, who hates...

    I had a Viper 5901 installed on my 2011 coupe 2 weeks ago and the remote start worked fine for a couple of days and then suddenly stopped. I brought it back on Saturday to be checked and they determined it to be a problem with the immobilizer/transponder bypass module. A re-flash got it...

    Hey everyone, I had Honda's remote starter installed by a mechanic (who works at Honda). When I turn on the car using the remote it seems to deactivate my keyless entry. The only way to get into the car is if I manually unlock the door with the key but that turns the car off. Is it supposed...

    I just installed a Viper 5902 Alarm with Remote Start on my 2008 Accord EX-L and added on the SmartStart module so I can remotely start from my Blackberry. The problem is that I have no way to activate it because only certified installers have the ability to log into the system. I no longer have...
