A new client from Anchorage came in with a 2010 Toyota Tundra and inquired about a remote starter. We presented many different options, including the choice of one-way or two-way systems. One-way systems do not give you confirmation that the truck has started on the remote control. A two-way system advises you when the vehicle has successfully started.
The client chose a Compustar CS800. The CS800 is a one-way system with 1,000 feet of range. We scheduled an appointment to install the CS800 on his Tundra.
We started by inspecting and checking all the functions of the truck, using our iPad check-in template. Our technicians use Tesa tape and zip ties, and always solder each and every electrical connection.
Once the job is complete, we have a different technician check the vehicle out. He goes over all the check-in functions and also reviews the work that we performed. In this case, he checked the hood pin, break shutdown, unlock, lock and remote start functions. The hood pin is essential in every remote starter. It lets the remote starter know if the hood is open or closed. If the hood is open and someone tries to remote start the vehicle, it will not start and will give an error. Proper protection like this is a fundamental safety feature, so we install a hood pin on every vehicle.
Before we pull the truck out of our Bay, we place a complimentary Perfectionist Auto Sound and Security bottle of water in the cup holder and add a VIP hanger. We review with the client how to use their new remote starter and answer any questions they might have.
