One of the most popular questions we get at Driven Audio in Abbotsford is “Can my push-to-start vehicle be remote started?” The simple answer is yes. In fact, we have years of experience in installing remote starters for this type of vehicle for people all around the area, including Mission and Aldergrove.
Here’s How Push-To-Start Works in Your Vehicle
On a push-to-start vehicle, the endgame is the same as a key start vehicle, meaning warming up in the winter or cooling down in the summer, all while staying secure. Here is the difference: In the key fob that you carry around is an RFID device that your car, truck or SUV picks up as you approach it. If you have remote started your vehicle, the system commonly will shut down when you open the door of the vehicle. It is a feature of the vehicle itself and not our remote start. The good news is your vehicle is now the perfect temperature inside. You simply get in, push the Start button you have always used and drive away. It is very simple.
In some vehicles, the engine will not shut down when you enter the vehicle. If you want to know for sure, stop by Driven Audio with your vehicle, and we can confirm it for you.
One-button Remote Controls are Popular
A popular option for our push-to-start clients is a small, one-button remote control that attaches to your keys. It serves two purposes for you. First, it dramatically increases the operating range of your system, opening the door to starting your vehicle while you’re out and about. Work, shopping and dinner are three popular areas where people use our systems. The second reason is to give you control over your keyless entry system. Many push-to-start systems see the factory key fob go to sleep when the engine is running, so our fob also give you keyless entry.
A Drone Provides the Ultimate in Convenience
For the ultimate in convenience and range, our Drone smartphone system is your best choice. Once your system is installed, you download the free app to your phone and can now control your remote starter from anywhere your phone and the vehicle have Internet access. There is a small data plan for the Drone, and any of our team will be glad to go into detail about it with you.
