Hello!

So a question for you guys. Does installing a remote start myself void the warranty? I've heard mixed things on this. Also, has anyone done it with a 2013 civic? Is it hard to install? Since the 2013 got a new interior I wasn't sure if it was different to install compared with the '12.

I'm debating if I want to pay the dealer $400 to install a factory remote start this summer when I buy my Civic, or just install a Viper one for $200. My car sits outside all night long and I live in Chicago where it's always freezing, so walking out to a warm car would be nice. ;) Although it probably would heat up a lot faster than my current 2000 Mercury Mystique.

Thanks!

Nothing voids warranty unless its the cause of the problem with the car! So no it doesn't void your warranty. I don't know if they are hard to install or not. Never tried! It might increase value of your car if anything.

What's so bad with the the factory remote start?

And thank you everyone else. Good to know. :)

It appears Viper is the way to go.
viper is good.
When the remote start is running...

1. Buttons on the keyfob are disabled and/or ignored. To include the trunk release.
2. When you insert the key and unlock the door, the car shuts down.

This happens with the factory system? or the Viper system?
