Remote Starters F.A.Q

What is the difference between a 1-way and a 2-way remote start?

Simply put, 2-way remote starters utilize 2-way communication to give you feedback on any inputs. For example, pressing the lock button on a 2-way remote will cause the remote to light up and chime indicating that the vehicle received the signal. 1-way remote starters lack this feature.
