The Command Start remote starter is a device that allows drivers to start a car's engine using a remote. Remote starters allow drivers to start cooling or heating their car before they get in. Installation of these units may require a module that bypasses the vehicle's anti-theft system.
Remote starters contain several plug-in sockets, which provide electricity to various components inside a car. Some models include a keyless entry feature that allows the remote to unlock the car and possibly open any sliding doors or the trunk. While some vehicles come preinstalled with a remote starter, a third party can also install these systems in cars without them.
