Remote Start

I want a simple remote start button for my car so I can have it warm up in the morning.

There are a lot of options which have a bunch of features, connect to smartphones, etc; however, I'm just looking for something simple with just one button.

Any recommendations?

One-Way Starter

Simple as it gets. You'll also need to give up a spare key. That's the only way to bypass the immobilizer.

What do you mean "give up" a spare key?

Your spare key is required as part of the remote start and remains in the vehicle with the setup in order to start the car. Check out the install guide to the kit on their site.

Install Instructions

At the end of that PDF it explains what happens to one of your spare keys.
