Works but not without issues!
on November 20, 2013
I would say this system is just okay.
My friend and I both purchased this set and had it installed professionally. It seems buggy. No matter how many times we go through pushing the button as per the instructions, we never seem to get the perfect results. For instance, when I remote start my car, the horn blows 3-4 times. Which I hate because I'm often remote starting my car early in the morning, and I don't like disturbing the neighbours. However, in a sense, this shouldn't deter you, because my friends' truck does not have this issue. When we told his truck to turn that setting off, it did.
Keep in mind, if you have a sensor in your key, you need a bypass module! Very important. Also, be wary when buying the bypass modules, as they don't always come with what you need.
Anyways, I digress. The biggest issue with this alarm, and the reason for my average rating, is the fob. The portion for connecting to a key ring breaks off. We have super glued ours back in, but they still eventually break off. And trust me, I am not rough with mine at all. Worse than that, the battery cover on these sucks! Eventually the battery cover will no longer hold in place. My friend has a rubber band holding his battery in! We have been trying to find some sort of fob covers that fit these, but have not had any luck yet.
