Sweet Sounds in Mankato wants you to know that we work with a number of interface modules and they all serve one purpose: Allowing us to interface a remote start system into your vehicle in the safest, most reliable way possible.
If you talked to other companies, you might have noted they speak about “bypass” modules. Please be aware that the modules we use are interface modules, and you should be wary of anyone offering to bypass the anti-theft system in your vehicle. We INTERFACE with your car; we are not in the habit of bypassing it.
Our interface modules are often multipurpose devices. Sometimes they serve to interface with the digital communication system in newer vehicles and other times they interface with the vehicles anti-theft system to provide an authorized start code; many times they do both. Occasionally, our interface module will require us to install it with one of your original keys so that we can read the code from the transponder chip inside the key and pass it on to the car’s computer. While this is rare, there are cars where it may be the ideal solution. We will inform you of this long before we perform the installation.
Sweet Sounds Has Been Installing Remote Starts Since the Early 1990s.
We have installed thousands of remote start systems. During that time, we’ve created a database that tracks all the vehicles we’ve ever worked on, and it allows us to know exactly which interface module to recommend for your car. You can trust our experts.
Blade Interface Modules are the Cream of the Crop
Our most popular integration module is the Blade series of interfaces, which work exclusively with Compustar remote start systems. They are not available to fit a Viper or any other remote start system on the market. Why do we use the Blade series? They are the most reliable and best-supported modules in the marketplace, and they slide directly into the Compustar controllers (the brains of the system) that we use.
On Occasion, We May Ask You for Two Keys
Sometimes we will ask you to bring along two keys to program our interface module. This is fairly common with Ford and a few other manufacturers. Not to worry, you will get both keys back unless we specifically tell you ahead of time that you will need to leave one installed in the vehicle.
Are All Keys Chipped?
No, they are not. However, you may still have an anti-theft system to deal with. Many GM-built vehicles feature anti-theft systems built into the key cylinder, instead of the key.
I Have a Push-button Start Car, How Does That Work?
If you own a vehicle that starts by pushing a button rather than using a key, our interface modules are critical to making a remote start work properly in your car, truck or SUV. In simple terms, our module sends the same command to your computer that it would see if you were sitting inside your car and pushed the button.
Can Someone Steal My Car?
Our interface module only sends an “ok to start” signal when you request it using your handheld remote control or a DroneMobile smartphone remote start system. By utilizing the Blade series of modules, we eliminate the wires that a thief could tamper with.
