Since I thought the dealer was going to install the Honda remote-starter, I only did the research after the fact. Actually, it's one of the least expensive and probably easiest to self-install models that you can find out there. It's a Crimestopper Cool Start RS4. I got hosed with the install cost (roughly $300 to install) but then again I'm glad I didn't get the Honda Remote-Starter at the Honda price. Yes, I could've done it myself, but I just don't have the time. And considering the savings I had elsewhere in my purchase experience, I didn't make more of a stink about this. If you go ahead and do the self-install, I think the forum would love to hear of your experience!Can you provide brand/model for the starter you had installed?
Thanks for the input!Actually, it's one of the least expensive and probably easiest to self-install models that you can find out there. It's a Crimestopper Cool Start RS4.
Same here but I'd just add that in my case expertise & tools pretty much disqualify me as any kind of installer. With my luck I'd push the start button and the car would start up and run away... :rollingeyes:Yes, I could've done it myself, but I just don't have the time.
I got the RS when made a deal purchased my 2011 EX-L RES. When I start the vehicle, there is no parking lights on to show the van is running or not. You can look at the remote screen when it starts, but hard to find the van in the parking lot when it is running. Only thing I can try to find is the smoke come out the exhaust.:nothappy:I paid about $800 bucks, but I would not recommend the starter. When you start the van from the fob, it works great. You must shut off the engine and restart the van with the key to drive it.
is there a remote start unit that allows you to remotely start the car, open doors, etc. When you finally want to move along, you just put the key in, turn it to the 2nd position and on your way you go?
My 2008 EX-L is exactly this. I have a Viper 5901 and it works great.
I know something has changed with newer years that people say requires the engine to be restarted, but there has to be a way around this. It just ruins the whole thing.
