Hi out there, I am a new Sta Fe 2010 owner and to this blog, which I found fantastic.
I am shopping for a remote starter for my new baby but I have encountered that I need to purchase an extra key so they can use the chip to install/program the remote device... does any one know about this? is it safe? is there any other way to install it without ordering an extra key ($120) and leave a chip inside the car?
Thanks to all for your comments
|Hi Khyron, thanks for your explanation, so it means that by having this chip inside the car all the time the immobilizer won't be working anymore as it will be passed by, is it right? if it is so then the protection is not there anymore?|
Hyundai has an "OEM" system, but it looks alot like some of the aftermarket systems I see in the automotive shops. The dealer did this install as part of my buying negotiations, and I recall them requiring the bypass for the ignition. I bought extended warranty, and am keeping this vehicle for 5 years, so I opted to have the dealer do the wiring and cutting of wires.
In general, the factory systems are touted to have greater security, and do not void your warranty, but all seem to have less range, in my experience. There is a 2-way, and a one-way key fob to start. So far seems to be working, which is great since we have had a terrible winter so far.
