Sometimes. The only reason you will usually need a key to program is for the immobilizer bypass module. Depending on the immobilizer used in the vehicle, some will require two keys to properly program the bypass module. This will depend on whether or not your vehicle has an immobilizer, and if it does, what kind it has. Professional installation is always recommended with remote starts, and the installer should be able to tell you if your vehicle requires two keys to program.

Thanks for the feedback!
Yes you can. I can't remember exactly how, but i bought one off eBay & it had instructions on how to reprogram it. Very simple.
Reprogram AstroStart 2106u. Open hood. Place key in the ignition and turn to the RUN position. Apply the brakes once. You now have 10 seconds to turn the key from the RUN to… the OFF position 3 times. If this sequence is correctly carried out, the control module flashes parking lights (4 flashes). You may then proceed to the next step. Press the "KEY" button on the new remote control. When access code of new remote control is memorized, the control module will confirm with flashing parking lights (1 flash). Repeat the above procedures for each remote control that has to be programmed (up to 4 remotes). Apply the brakes. Done!
I have a 1999 maxima, now i guessing this is a Nissan remote car starter because it's said Nissan on the key chain lol. I pressed the button twice and dash board lights comes …on, it's turning over like (when u try to start a car when there no fire to distributor) it wants to start but i guess wen the starter is finish nothin happens, but then wen i had open the door and hit the lock button twice same thing but it started but that was only 1 time. Don't if not grounded well enough what, was already in wen i purchase the car
Lots of places install them. Shops that install radios in vehicles will usually sell and install remote starters. Call around.

There is an electrical problem between the starter switch and the starter solenoid. The most likely cause is a loose connection at the solenoid or the fusable link has m…elted.
For the faint of heart with money: Take it to a dealer. For those with a sense of adventure and do-it-yourself'ers : There are many web sites with procedur…es listing how to program a remote control for many vehicles. Ther are some manufacturers that do not allow it without special equipment. For the majority, you can find the instructions. Search on: Make, Model, Year with the words "program remote control". A little searching and you should find it. Here are some notes from the web: NOTE: There is nearly ALWAYS separate programming for keys & remotes, even if they are one unit. One Exception is newer Chrysler all in one units which are programmed as one unit. These can not be self programmed. All SMART keyless for remotes - Nissan - Lexus - Toyota - Hyundai - All can NOT be self programmed. Audi - Nearly All require special equipment for programming for keys & remotes. BMW - Hit and miss on programming. The keys can NOT be self programmed. Buicks - Erratic. La Crosse - NO Onboard self Programming Available Cadillac - Most from 1998 to 2000 require special equipment for programming - Except Escalade which can be self done. ALL CTS - NO self Programming Dodge & Chrysler Products - Many require one existing & working remote to program additional units. If you have no working unit, then special equipment is required to get these done. There is no "Other" programming available to help you if you have NO existing remote. Chrysler Crossfire - can NOT be self done - key or remote. 1997 1998 1999 Dakota & Durango - No programming Available. Dodge Charger - NO self programabilty on board. All Chrysler combo units, meaning key and remote in one, can NOT be self programmed. Ford - Nearly ALL KEY programming requires 2 working keys. If you have just one key, You will NOT be able to program additional keys on your own. Nearly ALL Ford Remotes CAN be self programmed. Fords are generally the easiest of all to program. GM - HHR, Colorado, Cobalt, SSR, Uplander, Canyon, and 2001 & newer Malibu & Malibu Max. These require special equipment for programming. Circle Plus Keys CAN be self programmed. Some GM Products have a split year whereby part a year may be programmable, and part may not. There can also be two or more different remotes for some models in the same year. Hummer H3 2006 and newer Honda Ridgeline - NO Self Programming Hyundai Tiburon - THE 2003 TIBURON AND MAYBE MORE ARE INCREDIBLY SIMPLE!!!!!!!! 1. Get in the car and close the door. 2. Turn the key to the ACC posistion 3. Push the unlock button on the remote until the blikers flash once. 4. Get out of the car and test the remote. It should be working fine. Hyundai Elantra - 2006 and Newer are not self programmable. Tucson - NO On Board Programming Jaguar - Most newer vehicles require special equipment for programming. Model S definitely can NOT be self programmed. Jeep - Grand Cherokees from 1997 to Present require special equipment for programming Cherokees from 1997 to 2001 require special equipment for programming Land Rover - Nearly ALL require special equipment for programming Lincoln - LS Model - Some years may require special equipment for programming We definitely DO have 2003 to 2006 AVAILABLE for self programming. Mercedes Benz - Some require special equipment for programming for keys & remotes. Many MB dealers are uncooperative & will give you a gigantic run around, and tales abound. We know for a fact that many can be done. DO YOUR HOMEWORK ! Oldsmobile : 2000 & Up Aurora NO Self programming Pontiac - G5, G6, 2001 Grand Am & later, Grand Prix 2004 & Later, 2006 & Later Montana Pontiac Solstice - NO On Board Programming Saab - All Years require special equipment for programming for keys & remotes Toyota - Prius Silver Logo Smart unit is NOT self programmable. Volvo - All except early 850, require special equipment for programming Another case of a lot of hogwash flying around. Some need a code, others DO NOT. However, some dealers will tell you differently as they do not want to let you off cheap
To start a car, you charge up the glow plug starter. Once fully charged, prime the engine (place finger over the exhaust pipe exit and pull the engine starter cord or use your… roto starter) and turn on your radio gear. Then plug the glow plug starter on top of the engine and turn the engine over again and it should fire.
In order to program a AstroStart remote car starter, you need to open the hood, turn car to on position, push and release the brake pedal, and cycle the ignition off, on, …off, on, off. Your parking lights when then blink four times, you then push any button on the remote and push the brake pedal.
because they have a recall for that dispositive...just go at a car dealer and they will fixe better for free X8D
Yes it depends what you have. Usually the good starters will let you program it to more than 1 car.
If your car has security system with engine immobilizer, no you can't.
John Mangan (of manganlabs.com), a home hobbyist and hardware hacker created the first remote car starter in 1989. The car was controlled using an old cordless telephone with …the base hacked to receive and interpret DTMF codes from the cordless handset. When a specific code was entered, a series of relays would be triggered to simulate the starting process as would be done with an actual key in the car. He later experimented with other methods of radio frequency remotes which allowed him to start and stop his car over significant distances (1+ miles). The first car to be remotely started in this way was a VW Rabbit with manual transmission. The car had to be left in neutral with the emergency break pulled in order for the starter to work. It wasn't until the mid to late 90's before the first commercial car starter came to market, but unfortunately John Mangan never patented the idea and it was quickly mass-produced by many vendors.

Your remote car has a swich in the inside take it apart and push the button over
A car remote starter is used to start your car when you are not in it. It is good for cold days or hot days when you wish to warm up or cool down your car before you get insi…de of it.
Most modern cars require you to have the "Special" key with the remots functions on it to run the car. If it a seperate key fob remote you should not need it.
