Will installing a remote car starter void my new car warranty?
The short answer is no, but let’s dig into this a little deeper so you will better understand our response.
Sometimes car dealers will tell their customers that if they install anything in their vehicle that is not made and/or installed by them, their warranty is voided. That is NOT the case and it became a federal law back in the 1970’s. The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act addresses this very topic. Here is a link to the Federal Trade Commission site:
Now, here is where it gets important. Very important. This law does not protect you from poorly engineered and poorly installed remote car starters. A lousy product with a lousy installation can cause problems for your vehicle and it can void parts of your new car warranty.
What this means to you is that you need to choose very carefully who is going to work on your vehicle. Having a remote car starter installed can be described as major surgery. If you needed major surgery done yourself, would you look for a doctor who has the lowest price, or the doctor with the best reputation? I think you get our drift. A properly designed and properly installed remote car starter should give you years and years of trouble-free operation.
It is also important that the installation be done very discreetly and cleanly so if you need service work done on your vehicle it will be easy for the automotive repair technician to work on it.
