Have you ever wished you could warm or cool up your car before you get in? With Pep Boys remote starters, you can have this luxury with just the press of a button. There’s no need to experience that 5-minute feeling of discomfort while you wait for your car to reach the temperature you need it to be—not only is it more comfortable, it’s better for your engine to warm up before you jump in and start driving.

Finding Remote Starters for Your Car

Make sure the remote starter you choose is compatible with your vehicle’s make and model. Verify this information via the box, manufacturer’s website or your local service center or dealer. You’ll also want a remote starter that is compatible with your anti-theft system.


How to Install a Remote Starter

Read the installation instructions carefully. Installation instructions vary according to different brands and models of remote starters. Once you’ve read through these instructions, determine which tools you will need for your particular starter and vehicle. Some remote starters will come with all the necessary tools, so be sure to check your box.

Before you begin the installation process, inspect your vehicle to make sure everything is working properly prior to installation—check your battery, switches, lights and other systems. If any electrical systems aren’t working properly, make sure to have them fixed prior to beginning your installation.

Finally, make sure to place the main module in a secure, hidden location that won’t require extending the supplied wire. The usual position is inside the lower dash underneath the steering wheel, this way you can connect directly to the ignition wiring. Avoid placing it in the engine compartment or any area where it will be exposed to extreme vibration or heat. Other alternative locations include spaces above the glove compartment, the center console and above the dashboard fuse box.

If you do not wish to install your new electronic device yourself, our technicians are among the best in the industry and can provide aftermarket electronics services when you need them.
