View Full Version : remote start systems

I was wondering if it is possible to get a remote start system added to the factory alarm system for a 07 honda civic SI coupe? If it is possible, does anyone know how to get it done?

yup, just go to a local shop.

would it be a separate remote for the remote start or would they be able to program it in to the stock key/alarm from factory?

Most basic systems would be a seperate remote.
I do know that Vipers have a seperate trigger input that can be used to connect to an extra channel from the factory alarm. If the civics had rem start as an option, there should be a an extra trigger.

Stock Honda systems will not lock and unlock the doors with the engine on. This will require a second remote. Viper 160xv for non alarm and Viper 560xv for remote start alarm.

can remote start harm your car in any way?

If it's manual make sure it's in neutral before you try ;)

nah, can't really hurt it. But if you're asking a question like that, i'm (not trying to put you down) going to strongly suggest you get a shop to do it for you.
