The most important part of any remote start system is the installation. You can purchase the most advanced kit on the market and if it isn't installed properly it can cause all kinds of headaches for you. Today's vehicles are complicated thanks to transponder keys, factory anti-theft systems, and multiplexed door lock systems. If somebody isn't familiar with working with these systems then the installation should be left to somebody who is trained to work on these vehicles.
To help reduce vehicle theft, car manufactures are equipping the vehicle's key with a transponder chip. These chips keep the vehicle from starting unless the vehicle "sees" the key in the ignition. If your vehicle is equipped with a transponder key, an interface module will be needed (at an extra cost) at the time of installation. A majority of these modules are vehicle specific. In the rare occurrence a module is not made for your vehicle we will then use a universal module. Please stop by today and we will be able to tell you which module your vehicle needs.
Vehicle manufactures are trying to reduce the amount of wiring that is ran through a vehicle by using multiplexed systems. Most of today's vehicles modern door lock systems are perfect examples of a multiplex system. Instead of sending conventional electrical signals when pushing your door lock button to lock the other doors, a multiplex system will convert your action to a digital signal. Basically instead of having one wire for each action of your door lock switch, one wire can do everything. Unfortunately conventional ways of integrating your door lock system into a remote start won't work on a multiplex system. Thankfully our remote start manufactures are always ahead of the game and we have door lock modules (at an extra cost) that allow us to integrate your door lock system into your new remote start system. Integrating your door locks into the remote start allow you to have both your remote start and keyless entry on one remote. There is no need to carry two remotes.
Certain connections on a remote start system have to be soldered for the remote start to function properly. If these connections are not soldered not only will it cause problems with the functions of the remote start, it can keep you from starting the vehicle with the key as well. We assure you at SOUNDS FAST we solder these connections.
Your safety and the safety of anybody working on your vehicle is our top priority. This is why we install a hood pin on every remote start system at SOUNDS FAST. A hood pin will keep the vehicle from remote starting while the hood is open. We are surprised when when we get a vehicle in that another shop has installed a remote start and there is no hood pin. In our opinion this should be a standard on ANY remote start system!
SOUNDS FAST technicians are always attending the latest training from our manufactures. We feel this is vitally important to keep us up to date on today's modern vehicles. On top of training we make sure our techs have the latest tech software and tools at their disposal. This assures they don't go into a vehicle "blind".
A remote start installation should be taken very seriously. We assure you at SOUNDS FAST your remote start installation will be done right the first time. We believe in the steps we take during an installation so much that we put a lifetime warranty on every installation that leaves our store. With over 1000 remote starts sold and installed, SOUNDS FAST is Central Oregon's remote start headquarters.
Hi Dave, this is Jessica LaMere. I wanted to Thank You again so much for helping me out. All of you guys were great. Ranae told me you guys were the one's who helped out Shane and I really wanted to take my business to you guys just for the fact that you all helped and supported Shane. If I ever need anything else I will be back for sure. I really wish there were a lot more people in the world that would care enough to help people out that are in a terrible situation as we are. I cannot thank you guys enough. My son's site is: www.caringbridge.org/visit/johngrable and it has a lot more info about John's cancer, my son Joey's heart defect, and also about my son Marshall who passed away from SIDS in 2001.
Thank You so much,
Colin, You probably won't remember us, but my wife and I had you put in a stereo in our older Cadillac. I just got your card in the mail today and I'd like to get on your mailing list. We really appreciate the way you do business, it's truly rare in this day and age. We are home in Bandon now on the coast but we really like Bend and are looking for an excuse to come back. The next time we need something electronic, rest assured we'll be back and look you up. And we love the radio/XM installation you guys did for us.
Thanks again for the great job and checking up with me. We will do biz again.
I had a remote start and new stereo with bluetooth installed everyone was polite and I love my remote start especially on these chill Central Oregon mornings and evenings, thanks guys for doing an awesome job!
