A customer from Eagle River, AK, came in looking for some new shoes and a 4-inch lift for their brand-new 2020 Chevrolet Silverado. With stock wheels and tires, there was nothing to make it stand out from any other truck. The customer wanted to size up and achieve a more custom look. We fitted the Silverado with some Fuel Vapors with a 19″ offset wrapped in Toyo RTs. With a 4-inch lift on top of that, the vehicle looked bigger, sleeker and better suited to our client.
One of our clients from here in Anchorage, Alaska, brought his 2015 Chevy Silverado to Perfectionist Auto Sound and Security for a remote start system. This client is very familiar with the Compustar brand and our services, since we installed remote starters in his previous vehicle and that of his wife. We agreed on a system and scheduled an appointment for the Silverado remote starter installation.
Silverado Remote Start Control Selection
Some clients need as much range as possible. This client chose the Compustar Pro T11 RF kit for his remote starter. This amazing remote offers up to 3 miles of range. A rechargeable lithium-ion battery powers the remote. The case and buttons of the remote are rated against water intrusion to an industry standard of IPX7. The remote is also shock-resistant. If the remote gets dropped into a puddle or snowbank, or even left in a pocket and put through the laundry, it should come out just fine.
The T11 remote control features a backlit LCD to provide information about vehicle status. Five control buttons and a function button let the client lock, unlock, remote start, activate the panic feature, check the interior temperature and battery voltage of the vehicle, and much more. When the client presses a button on the remote, the remote sends a signal to the vehicle, then displays a confirmation that the signal was received and the function was executed.
We schedule an entire day for each remote starter installation. This scheduling allows our team of technicians to take their time in working on the vehicle. Once the client dropped off the truck, we pulled it into our shop. We always start every project with a full vehicle check-in to assess the condition of the vehicle and the function of key electrical systems.
Our technicians solder every electrical connection they make to ensure both electrical conductivity and mechanical reliability. We wrap these connections and all of our wiring in premium vinyl electrical tape and then with Tesa-brand cloth tape. The cloth tape makes the wiring look as if it came from the factory and prevents buzzes and rattles. Finally, we secure the system out of view with zip ties.
With the installation complete, our tech reviews the check-in log and confirms that all the systems still function. We have a second tech review the remote starter functionality and the check-in list.
Silverado Remote Starter Delivery
When the client returned to Perfectionist Auto Sound and Security to pick up his truck, we showed him how to use the system before he left. He was very happy with the installation.
