Question about 2003 Honda Element
I have a 2003 Honda Element that has a dealer installed Honda Remote Keyless entry combined with alarm system. This dates back to the original purchase. I would like to add a remote starter to the vehicle.
Do I need to scrap some or all of the existing system to install a starter? I see most come with some or all of the features.
I am on a budget so the most economical approach is best. The Honda system so far has been solid so it might be a shame to chuck it. I wouldn't even mind an extra (small) remote.
No you do not need to scrap anything. Most of the starters at www.directwholesale.net will work with everything you have installed. Also its a good idea to leave all that stuff in anyway as it will take away from the resale value when you go to sell it. Most of the new remote starters will take place of the factory remote anyway so you will only need to carry one (provided you get the one that has all the features on it). If you get the cheapest one out there, you would still carry the factory remote as well (which is what I do myself). I would personally leave all the factory Honda System in and get the cheapest starter out there. Seems like this would 1.) be the best bang for the buck and 2.) not take away from the value of the vehicle since nothing would be removed. Thank you for using FixYa. Good luck to you!
