Install remote engine starter.

We own a 2003 VW passat. Had it since it's birth. I am crazy starting here car daily. I would love to have a remote starter. Is it possible to install it by myself? I am not the brightest bulb on the planet. Do you or can I get installation instructions? Can I buy something like this at Advance Auto Parts, etc? Her birthday is early February. I do not have much money, especially in these hard times.Please advise

    I paid $250.00 to have one installed on a 2001 Taurus and that included two remotes and the place that did mine was an electronics shop that installs radios, cd players, remote starters, etc, anything to do with electronics on vehicles

    I don't know what is in your area but try one of these places first and like I mentioned in the first response we have a Meijer's store which is like Walmart and Kmart which also sells remote starters in their auto departments and these were under $100.00 and they come with a video or DVD that shows you step by step how to do it yourself

How do i replace the battery on a 2003 Passat


Be sure to use an auxillary input voltage device (memory savor) so you do not lose ECM TCM and radio programming. Most cars have a seperate battery for this, but VW does not. It plugs into the cigarette light and supplies a small amout of power to vital systems. I picked one up at harbor frieght for $5.
Also, make sure the car is OFF. Disconnect the negative cable before the posative, and install after the posative cable.
Always match the AMP ratings or go higher, because of cable resistance building up over time and wear to the starter. Replacing the cables and starter would fix this issue, but add much cost.
Good Luck.
