Remote Starters

You have come to the right place when looking for a remote car starter. Here at Aftermarket Effects we can help you decide which remote car starter is best suited for your needs. Todays vehicles are more sophisticated than they used to be so it takes a great deal of knowledge to make sure of a proper installation. We have over 50+ years combined experience in this field and take great pride insuring your remote starter was properly installed. We also install car security systems as well, and if you want both features we offer a remote starter alarm combo.

We have single button remotes for those who have keyless entry built into the vehicle's key or 5 button remotes that offer lock, unlock, trunk, start and the ability to control two different vehicles. All of our 1 way remote starters have a range of 800 -1500 feet. Our 2 way systems achieve up to 3000 feet.

All of our remote starters come with a LIMITED LIFETIME WARRANTY and will NOT void your vehicle's factory warranty because of the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act. If your dealer tells you that a remote starter will void your warranty, please refer them to this article on the Federal Trade Comission website. So when deciding on a remote starter, Aftermarket Effects is the place for you! We also have gift certificates available, which make a perfect gift for your family member or loved one.

Remote Starter FAQ

Aftermarket Effects Installed Remote Starters Only

Problem is your remote is lighting up but your car is not responding. Our remote start sysytems have an available option to control a second vehicle. Somehow, someway, you have changed your remote to control the second vehicle. Our remotes, depending on the model you have, will light up BLUE to control your vehicle. If the remote is lighting up RED, that doesn't mean the battery is dead even though that would be a nice feature, it means your remote is in the second vehicle mode. Give us a call at 607-756-1756 and we will guide you through the procedure to get your remote back to controlling your vehicle or just stop by the store and we will fix it for you.

Can a Remote Starter Be Installed on A Manual Transmission?

What Is A Transponder Key and How Does It Effect My Remote Car Starter Installation?

In the late 1990s some vehicle manufacturers started putting small RF transmitters (transponders) in their ignition keys. The purpose of a transponder is to verify that the key that is in the ignition is the real deal, and not a copy. If the transponder signal does not match what the vehicle is looking for, the vehicle simply will not start. This presents a problem for remote starter installations. Why? Because the key is not present when remote starting. In order to properly integrate a remote starter in a vehicle with a transponder key, an extra part called a “bypass” is needed. This “bypass” fools the vehicle into believing that the key is present and the RF signal is correct. Most vehicles need some type of bypass.
