: Remote Starter???

12-28-05, 12:06 PM
Has anyone installed a remote starter in an SRX? What would the best brand be? My '04 Chevy Malibou came with it stock from the factory. I think that for other GM cars they have modles that plug in to the factory harnesses and do not require cutting the wires.

They generally arent very good quality models that integrate with the factory units. DEI and Audiovox (and their daughter companies) are the two best brands out there when it comes to remote starters. For the SRX you have to have an extra key for the remote start to work with the bypass module unless you buy a USB flash programmable bypass module which isnt really worth the expense if you dont do it for a living.

A word of warning though: Leave it to a professional. Cutting wires under the dash of a new vehicle will often void the electrical warranty unless installed at the dealership.

I asked our dealer about installing one in the wifes SRX, but they said they would not due to warrenty concerns.
