Just pre-set your AC to pre-cool the interior after a hot day of it sitting in the sun. Say goodbye to hot seats and burning steering wheels!
You may not see the need to go beyond your garage or driveway to remote start your car, but increased range with 2-way confirmation is definitely an advantage when your parked at work, out shopping or in a restaurant, especially when the weather is bad. With standard remotes, you're looking out the window to see if your parking lights are on (or you can see the exhaust when it's cold) to confirm that you successfully activated the remote starter. With a 2-way remote, the advantage is when your vehicle is out of sight you can be sitting at your table in a restaurant or in the checkout line at the grocery store and have visual and sound confirmation right on your remote that your vehicle has remote started, or not! Even double check that you locked the vehicle's doors and more!
Easily identify, locate and confirm the wiring in your vehicle using our vehicle specific step-by-step installation guide and LED style test probe with installation connector kit.
All our our remote starter and alarm kits arrive at your door complete with all the parts and information you'll need to install the system into your specific vehicle. Guaranteed!
APSRS-2LEDZ 2-Way Confirming Remote Starter Features
IncludesOne 2-Way LED Remote Transceiver:2-way confirming abilities will enable you to confirm successful remote starting of your vehicle, doors locked, unlocked, power trunk activation all within 1 MILE of your vehicle. The remote will flash the corresponding buttons LED and emit a slight beep in a pattern depending on the vehicle's status (Remote on the left in photo).

Remote Keyless Entry: Remotely locks (and arms, see below) & unlocks (disarm) all your vehicles doors.
NEW! All Entrance Alarm Protection Option* (No Extra Charge): If your vehicle didn't come equipped with a factory alarm system you can easy add one with just 1 extra wire** connection if you want. Alarm all your vehicle's doors with the system's OEM style security alarm option (offered during checkout). The system will utilize your vehicle's horn as a sounding device if any of the vehicle's doors are opened after being locked with one of the system's remotes. And as an EXTRA BONUS: if your vehicle is equipped with accessible OEM hood and/or trunk trigger wires the kit will supply 2 extra independent inputs for each additional trigger.
*Option cannot be turned on after installation, the system must be ordered with the alarm option pre-programmed ON or the control module would have to be sent back in for computer programming (additional service labor charges may apply)
**On most vehicle's; some vehicle's can require up to 4 additional connections when protecting all doors. If required extra inputs will be supplied.
Safety 2-Press Remote Start Activation:The remote starter is activated by pressing the remote start button on the remote 2X within 3 seconds. This setting helps prevent any accidental activation that could occur with a single press activation setting.

Pre-Heat/Pre-Cool Activation: Pre-setting your vehicle's heat settings prior to exiting your vehicle will enable you to pre-warm the interior and defrost the windshield when your vehicle is running via the remote starter. Same with the vehicle's AC, just pre-set the AC settings where you like it and it will pre-cool the interior on those hot days from it sitting in the sun.
Multiple Remote Start Run Times:The system will be set-up for you with whatever run time you wish that's available: Your choices will be 5, 10, 15, 20, 45 or 60 minutes.

The antenna conveniently incorporates both the system's programming/valet button and status LED. This eliminates any hole drilling in the vehicle's dash and reduces the amount of wire's needed to be run under the dash during installation.

▼VSS Vehicle Specific System Advantages ▼
Step-by-Step, Vehicle Specific Installation Guide: No sitting with a lap-full of "spaghetti-wire", no info to download or videos to watch and no jumping back-and-forth from a vehicle wiring chart to the system manual to figure out what wires are needed (and not needed) to connect to in your vehicle.
Each VSS system includes a concise step-by-step, vehicle specific installation manual that clearly indicates what wire from the system connects to what wire in the vehicle, where the wire is located (the majority of our manuals also include color photo's) and how to easily confirm that you found the correct wire using the VSS kits supplied LED style test probe.
LED Style Test Probe: No need for using awkward multi-meters that indicate voltage level's that can confuse polarity readings and require the use of two probes and a bare spot on the wire in order to take a reading. Each of our VSS kits includes an easy to use LED style test probe to use along with the VSS kits step-by-step vehicle specific installation manual. This test probe simplifies the procedure of testing for the correct wire in your vehicle by lighting a green or red LED to indicate the target wire's polarity (explained in each step of the vehicle specific install manual).
Includes Vehicle Specific Extras: We know the inconvenience of getting into the middle of an installation and finding out that you need to stop and run to the auto parts store for a relay or radio shack for some resistor's or whatever, so we include any needed extra relays, diodes, resistors, voltage inverters, etc. needed for your specific vehicle's installation. Installation Connector Kit: Each VSS system includes 3 different sizes of quick-connect "T-Tap" connectors with pre-crimped insulated male spade connectors on the ends of the system's wiring for making quick connections from the system to the vehicle's wiring. Also included are crimp cap connectors for connecting wires end-to-end and self-tapping screws with ground loop connectors for making chassis ground connections. Also supplied are nylon zip ties for securing wiring, control module and sensor under the dash.
