Jeep’s Renegade offers much for those searching for something different than an off- road Wrangler SUV. This more car-like driving experience retains some classic Jeep features in terms of design and utility.
Our plug and play remote start kit works seamlessly with factory vehicle keys to allow you to start your vehicle from any location by pressing lock 3 times on the OEM key fob. Installation typically takes under an hour.
What is a Remote Start System?
Remote start systems provide advanced convenience features that enable you to start your vehicle remotely from a distance using either your key fob or an app on your smartphone. When the vehicle starts, its doors lock securely so it cannot be stolen while after some period of time it shuts off automatically if no one is present inside.
Your remote start system also makes it possible to utilize your vehicle’s comfort features like heated seats and steering wheel (if equipped). Your car will stay at your desired cabin temperature until you open or put into gear the vehicle.
Professional installers should always be used when installing a remote start system to ensure it is installed correctly and without damage to your vehicle. A poorly done install could cost thousands in repairs and could even void your warranty! A good installer will help find you a remote start module and transmitter combination tailored specifically for you, and perform a clean install without leaving behind any residue on the vehicle itself.
How does a Remote Start System Work?
With just the touch of a button on a remote key fob or phone app, this system automatically preheats or cools a vehicle automatically before timing out and shutting itself off at its designated endpoint.
Remote start systems work by communicating with a vehicle’s engine control module via unique radio frequencies, then simulating electrical functions of key cylinders or sending data commands that activate its starter motor.
Although remote start systems appear straightforward, their technical complexity makes professional installation the superior choice for most car owners. Professional installers can also add extra security features such as aftermarket sirens and steering wheel locks to deter theft. If opting to DIY instead, make sure that battery is disconnected before initiating work on any work being undertaken; never start up your car in enclosed spaces such as a garage as this could cause carbon monoxide poisoning which could prove fatal if left untreated quickly.
What are the Benefits of a Remote Start System?
An electric remote start system can make driving your Jeep Renegade more comfortable. Starting the vehicle remotely allows the climate systems to warm up and de-ice windows before your arrival; engine preheating prevents cold oil damage; and it makes stealing harder because turning the key or fob inside will require multiple attempts before it works.
Remote start is an appealing convenience, but it is essential to remember that extended vehicle idling can cause pollution and is illegal in many states.
Furthermore, for an effective remote start system to function effectively the battery in your key fob must be operational – often times a dead battery can stop functioning, but replacing a CR2032 button cell should quickly rectify this problem.
What are the Requirements for a Remote Start System?
Our top rated plug and play remote start system comes complete with everything necessary for a successful installation, from components such as cables to instructions written by MPC technicians for simplified install guidance. In addition, technical support is available Monday-Friday 9am-5pm Arizona time.
Note: This system enables you to remotely start your vehicle and control its heating/air conditioning systems, provided both systems are within cell phone range. In order to take advantage of it, your Jeep Connect app must also be active with an active connection for that vehicle.
Before trying a remote engine start, be sure that both your brake switch is turned off and that your car is parked safely in an open area such as an outdoor parking lot or garage. Running your engine in such an enclosed space could result in Carbon Monoxide poisoning which could prove fatal.
Press and hold the lock button on your OEM fob three times to remotely start your vehicle, while additional 1500ft range remotes may be purchased at checkout for remote starting purposes.
