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

The starter has to bypass the immobilizer, and a key is the right way to do it. It's typically really deep in the dash so it's not like a thief can just reach under and grab it.

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?

I don't know all starters, but with my compustar the starter/alarm controller controls whether the "key" is active or not. So the system is only bypassed when it's supposed to be (ie, car is started). It's not like a proximity key being taped to the dash to fool the keyless entry start button (which I've heard of people doing!!)

So if I disable my compustar, I still should need a proper key with immob chip to start it even though there's a key buried somewhere in the dash. I've not actually tested this obviously (I do disable the starter all the time though).

Maybe an actual installer will chime in.

Yep, for aftermarket remote start kits it's been that way for years and years if your vehicle has a "chipped" key. The system needs one of your nice expensive programmed keys to work. The one's I've seen, the key is snapped into a box that wired into the system and then stuffed up under the dash. Most of your installer places will do just that. STUFF everything up under the dash. I don't do aftermarket electronics unless I do it myself. Had some sour experiences many years ago.

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.

It would seem that you are saying installing a non-factory system will void your warranty. That is not an accurate statement.
