Remote Car Starter from Custom Audio | Erie, PA


When it's time to invest in a remote car starter, don't trust your vehicle to anyone else.  Here at Custom Audio in Erie, PA, we understand that for most people their vehicle is one of their biggest investments, and we go to great lengths to protect that investment.  That's why we do things a little differently here. We do not unnecessarily cut wires and we do not use plastic T-tap connectors.  Instead, we use the military splice method.

Stage 1

We do not unnecessarily cut wires and we do not use plastic T-tap connectors.  Instead, we use the military splice method.  That means we expose the wire in your vehicle, wrap our wire around it.

 

Stage 2

 •We then solder the wire. This ensures the securest connection possible.

 

 

Stage 3

Taping the wires prevents the wires from a potential short.

 

 

Stage 4

• Zip tying the connection ensures that the tape stays in place.

 

 

Stage 5

As an added safety feature, we install a mercury or pin switch to prevent the vehicle from starting with the remote starter once the hood is opened.

Stage 6

  • Some vehicles require the use of 10 gauge power wire with an inline fuse that is connected directly to the vehicles battery.

 

 

*Installs like this do take a little longer, and we may not be able to do them in mass quantities, but we value quality over quantity every time. 

 

 

THE "OTHER" WAY

 

Crimped Connection

  • The "other" way of doing a remote install consists of cutting the vehicles wires and making a crimped connection. This method should not be used because it is not meant to be permanent and can easily seperate causing an adverse affect to a function of the vehicle.

Scotchlock

  • A T-Tap or Scotchlock connector bites down on the factory wire connecting it to the remote start wire. This connector is not meant for use in cars as it does not always have a perfect connection and that can lead to problems down the road. We do not use these as they are not meant to be permanent connectors.  Here is an article from an industry magazine reviewing proper installation techniques. Mera Installation Article

 

 

 

We've been in business for 31 years, we've been installing remote car starters for 20 years, and have been using Compustar brand remotes for the last 14 years as they have proven to be the most reliable.  There are a variety of remotes to choose from depending on what kind of range you need, if you would like confirmation on the remote that your vehicle has started, or if you would like to start your car from virtually anywhere with your cell phone using Drone Mobile.

3x Lock

It is possible to add the remote start function to your factory key fob. This option would enable the remote start by pressing the lock button 3 times. This option is great for the person that does not want to carry an additional remote with their current keys or perfect if you only need a short range application.
