Perfectionist Auto Sound & Security is considered an expert on remote car starters. These products have been our passion since the company was founded a long time ago, so, as you can imagine, the topic of a using these on push-to-start vehicles often comes up. Many people ask, “Can you put a remote car starter on my push-to-start vehicle?” The short answer is yes. Let’s explore how a remote start can work on your vehicle.
Push-To-Start Remote Starters Are A Little More Complex, But Don’t Worry
First off, you are correct in having some concerns. Installing a remote car starter on a push-to-start vehicle is more complex than installing one that uses a normal key. What that means to you is you want to be very careful about who works on your vehicle. The team at Perfectionist has decades of experience in this field, and we have been working on push-to-start vehicles since they first hit the masses in 2005 on the Toyota Avalon.
Vehicle Operation After Remote Starter Installation
Will your push-to-start vehicle work exactly the same after you get a remote car starter for it? That is another great question. If you are not using the remote car starter, your vehicle will work exactly the same way. No difference at all. When you ask the vehicle to remote-start, you may see some minor changes in how you interact with the vehicle – in some vehicles, you may have to use the unlock button on your remote car starter to unlock the doors if you have remote-started it – but you may not see any changes.
In some vehicles, the engine will shut off when you open the door, so you will simply get in, push the button in the dash to start it, and drive away, just like before.
Some vehicles will not shut off when you go out to them after using the remote starter, so you will just push the start button on the dash and then drive away.
With some vehicles, you won’t need to do anything. You simply unlock the doors with your remote starter fob, get in and drive away. There is no need to push the button.

Does some of this sound overwhelming? Well, don’t let it get to you.

And rest assured, the whole team at Perfectionist Auto Sound & Security is here for you after the sale.
