Remote Starters FAQ

Q: My compustar remote is not working, how can I fix it?

THE VERY FIRST THING TO CHECK IS THE BATTERY IN THE REMOTE. IF YOU CHANGE THE BATTERY IN THE REMOTE AND IT STILL DOES NOT FUNCTION, YOU MAY NEED TO TRY RE-PROGRAMMING THE REMOTE TO THE VEHICLE. IN ORDER TO PROGRAM ONE OR MULTIPLE REMOTES, PLEASE REFERENCE THE FOLLOWING STEPS:
  • Insert your vehicle key into the ignition and cycle the key from the OFF to the ‘ON/RUN’ position and back to the ‘OFF’ position a total of (5) five times rapidly. PLEASE, DO NOT START THE ENGINE. (OFF/ON/OFF/ON/OFF/ON/OFF/ON/OFF/ON/OFF)
  • After cycling your key 5 times, the parking lights will flash one time, then immediately tap the LOCK button on your Compustar remote. Do not hold down the button, just tap. You should see a second single headlight flash. This confirms that the Compustar remote was programmed to the vehicle.
  • Depending on your remote starter type, you can program 3-4 remotes to a single-vehicle.
  • When programming is completed, you will see two consecutive headlight flashes.

When programming multiple remotes it is only necessary to do the key cycle (step 1) one time. Following this press, and release the lock button on each individual remote successively. (i.e. cycle the key then press lock on one remote, then lock on the next, then lock on the next remote.)

Notes:
The system must be disarmed in order to program remotes.
Valet mode will be activated if the system does not identify a remote during programming.
The process will be different for Push-To-Start vehicles.
For one button remotes, press the 1 button for 1 second as the lock command.

q: What is the hot/cold start feature

THE HOT/COLD START FEATURE IS AN OPTIONAL FEATURE IN COMPUSTAR UNITS THAT WILL ALLOW YOUR VEHICLE TO AUTOMATICALLY REMOTE START WHEN THE TEMPERATURE READING IN THE VEHICLE CABIN REACHES A SET TEMPERATURE. FOR COLD START YOU CAN SET THE VEHICLE TO START AT:
  • -5°C/23°F
  • -10°C/14°F
  • -15°C/5°F
  • -20°C/-4°F

For hot start you can set the vehicle to start at:

  • 25°C/77°F
  • 30°C/86°F
  • 35°C/95°F
  • 40°C/104°F

The Compustar unit will attempt to read the temperature in pre-set intervals; if it reads a temperature below the cold start limit or above the hot start limit the vehicle will automatically remote start. The run time for this remote start will be 4 minutes for regular vehicles, and 8 minutes for diesel vehicles. The set temperature and time interval between readings can be changed by the dealer/installer. This feature may require extra installation and equipment.

NOTE: This feature can only be programmed and set up by the installer or an authorized dealer. If it is not activated by an installer, it will not function. When attempting to activate this feature from the remote you will receive a ‘Fail’ or 3 parking light flashes when this option is not activated.

Once the feature has been programmed by the installer, you are able to activate it using your Compustar remote. Once the vehicle is started with the key, the hot/cold start will be reset to off. Therefore it must be manually activated with the remote every time after driving the vehicle if you would like it to be activated.

How to set hot/cold start mode:

  1. Have the vehicle turned off and the doors closed.
  2. Tap the unlock and the trunk buttons (II & III) at the same time. (do not hold) 
  3. If you have an LCD remote it should now show a ‘timer’ on the screen. 

How to deactivate the hot/cold start mode:

  1. Press and hold the unlock and the trunk buttons (II & III) at the same time. (press and hold for 2.5 seconds) 
  2. Tap the unlock and the trunk buttons (II & III) at the same time. (do not hold) 
  3. ALSO– Once the vehicle is started with the key, the hot/cold start mode will be automatically cancelled.

NOTE: If you have either of our remotes with the ‘F’ key, this feature will be activated differently. Please view the the ‘timer start’ feature on the link corresponding to your remote.
