Remote starter??

Hey guys just wondering how hard it is to wire in a remote starter?? The reason I ask is because it is getting flipping cold out and I'd rather be sitting inside at 5 in the morning to start my car and let it warm up rather than sitting in my car for 5 mins as it warms up. Is it just a few wires or are these things a ***** to wire up??

Thanks,
Keith

Depending on the vehicle, they are relatively easy if you have testers and the wire codes. You also may need the security bypass kit for that particular car or truck. I've installed probably 50 of them in all types of vehicles, with no major faults, mostly Astroflex units due to their long range capability, expensive but there are cheaper ones out there. Probably the most frustrating part is removing the dash panels to access the ignition harnesses.

Also, I've always soldered mine those pinch connectors are nothing but trouble when it quits working tracing a bad connection.
