Op. No.: 87588

Remote start is an indispensable accessory on cold winter days when you want to turn on the heater without having to go out to the car. If there is an existing fuel-driven heater the car's software can be upgraded with the remote start function. With the push of a button on the car key the heater is started and the car acknowledges this by a flash of the lights.
