Recently a Montreal customer approached us regarding the possibility of installing a aftermarket remote starter in there BMW X3. When installing a remote start on a modern vehicle there are many things that need to be bypassed. These things can include sophisticated systems like a factory theft deterrent system. This customer realized that there was no bypass module that was designed for this particular vehicle and was wondering if we would be able to help them. Thankfully our experienced technicians have been through this before and we knew that the team at Access Auto would not only be able to help this customer out but surpass their expectations with a clean and professional installation.
This BMW X3 owner was looking for a 1-way remote start installation. You may wonder what is the difference between a 1-way and 2-way remote start system. A 1-way remote start system is only able to send commands to your vehicle, such as to start the vehicle or possibly pop the trunk. A 2-way remote start system not only sends information to your vehicle but will also send back a confirmation of the task that you requested, such as confirm the vehicle did start. For this vehicle our experienced technicians chose to install a 1-way Compustar remote starter. Due to the fact that there is no bypass module available for this vehicle our technicians were required to hard wire the remote start into the existing harness of the vehicle. Our technicians properly connect all wiring joints and protect them to prevent any possibility of future issues and provide the customer with a quality installation that will last for years. After the installation was complete, as always our technicians checked the operation of the remote start system and ensured that it was working properly when the customer came to pick it up.
