Remote Car Starter Installations in Rochester, NY

You know Rochester weather. Cold in the winter, hot in the summer. Where did spring and fall go?

With a remote car starter from Tim’s Trim, you can start your snow-covered car without ever leaving your house. That warms up the engine and the interior, and that means both you and your car benefit.

Reverse the process in the summer. When the heat’s trapped inside your car, hit your remote to start the air conditioner. Soon the inside of your car is bearable.

You can buy remote car starters (“valet starts,” “valet engine starters”) in lots of places. But only at Tim’s Trim do you get the perfect combination of quality, expertise, and service.

Remote Car Starter FAQ’s

Almost all remote car starter key fobs come apart with one screw and then snap apart. Inside the key fob is the battery. The most common batteries are 23A (like a miniature AAA battery) or a CR2032 (like a watch battery). We carry most batteries in stock and will change it for you. You just pay for the cost of the battery.
After replacing or disconnecting the main vehicle battery or getting a jump start. It may need to be reprogrammed or just taken out of valet mode. The first thing to check, does the vehicle lock/unlock with the remote. If it does, it is just in valet mode. It does depend on the manufacture on how to reprogram. But first try holding the lock and trunk button down at the same time. The vehicle parking lights should blink once. Then try the remote start feature. If neither the start function or keyless entry system work. It needs to be reprogram. This can be found in your owners manual. You will need both key fobs to reprogram. If you purchased the remote car starter from Tim’s Trim Inc.. We will take it out of valet mode or reprogram at No Charge
A one way remote start does not send a signal back to the remote after the vehicle starts to confirm it started. You must be able to see the vehicle to confirm. Usually the parking lights will come on when the vehicle is running to help you know it started. The two way will send a signal back to your remote confirming it started. So having your eyes on the vehicle is not needed.
It does depend on usage, but the rule of thumb is once a year or when you notice the range has gotten shorter.
I have never heard or seen that happen.
Yes, you can get one remote that operates two vehicles. But it does depend on the manufacture. Not all companies offer one
