                       $$ How much is a remote start ? 

one of the questions People often ask me how much is a remote start ?

The answer is not simple, However it does hover around three questions.

  1) does you vehicle have factory theft protection ?

  2) if so what kind ?

  3) how much transmitter range do you want ? 

These questions are all best answer at the store, because there are several different answers within a given year, make, model.

Hi.  Welcome to another Johnson Automotive video.   Yeah, that’s right; in this on we are going to be talking about Cell Phone Remote Start. That’s right, I know for a long time I haven’t really talked about them or sold them, or anything like that.  But that reason was because I felt like they were too expensive and because the network that they used was AT&T. And around here in Fairbury, anyone who has ever had AT&T, knows, yeah, there is no signal.  Yeah, No.  So they changed and they are now using a Verizon Network and they also cut the price in half.  So, I went ahead and installed one in my truck, did some testing around, have had excellent results with it.  Everywhere I want to start my truck it starts right up.  All I gotta do is choose the style of remote I want, as far as the look goes and then get logged in.  After, of course, you have me install it. And then it is all ready to go.  The first 90 days you get FREE.  So then you can unlock your door, unlock your door, start it, hit the trunk, sound off the alarm and wake up your neighbors, and there is a couple extra axillary features if we need to set something up special for you. Sends you all kinds of confirmations that what you asked it to do, it did.  Has a status button.  For a small extra, we can even add a temperature probe inside your car, so that you can know how warm or cold your car is. So you get up.  It’s 2 degrees outside.  Hit the remote start.  You get ready to leave.  Wait a minute—How warm is it in my vehicle?—Oh, good it is 85 degrees, so I can go ahead and get in my vehicle.  Or, Hey,” it’s only 78—maybe I want to wait a few more minutes”.  Or maybe it’s the summer time and it’s like 2 million degrees and your interior is melting! So you cool it off.  Turn your air conditioner on.  Look in there.  “Oh, man, it’s a nice 60 degrees in there.  OK, we can go ahead and get in the car now”.  Real convenient.  Anywhere in the world.  You can be in Florida and start your car in Illinois.  I recommend to people, if you don’t have to buy an extra remote, you just have to have the cell phone set up.  But if you want, I can even, if you want, sink your factory remote, even though it’s only got lock out, we can turn that into a feature that will remote start your car for you.   But, I also have a testimonial of another good customer of mine. He went ahead and got one.  Don’t take my word for it.  Listen to his. 

Hello, my name is Joe Richman.  I live here in Fairbury.   I had Johnson Automotive install a Drone Remote Start on my 2012 Toyota Corolla and I just wanted people to know that the service works really well here in Fairbury.  I also travel to East Peoria. I also have been in Chicago land area and everywhere I have gone I have been able to remote start my car wherever I’m at.  Larry did a great job on installation and I would recommend this remote start to anyone.

Thanks for watching this Johnson Automotive video.  Don’t forget to go ahead and subscribe down there, and check out our other testimonial videos or other informative videos.  We’ve had lots of comments from our customers that they have had a question about a certain topic and they went down and checked out some other videos and it has helped them to understand something that maybe they did not understand before.  And if you have any suggestions, themes or questions on subjects that you would like to hear me put a video together on, just leave a comment below and we will see what we can do to get that video together.  Thanks for watching and HAVE A GREAT DAY.
