When the seasons start to change and the weather gets colder, Michigan residents start to have a cold problem in the mornings. The solution to this issue is an automatic car starter. It is more likely for Michigan residents to have remote starters for their cars when the weather gets colder. If you’re on a budget, there are a few ways to make this happen. The first option is to get the car starter installed professionally. A professional will make sure that your car is working fine before installation and after installation. But if you have the time to do it yourself and save some money, we are here to help!

The first step is to figure out what type of automatic car starter you want. There are so many different options and features to choose from when looking for an automatic car starter. The remote starter first has to be compatible with your car to make sure that it works. There are a few that work with every vehicle and they all cost something different. They have starters with longer distances, some with security features, ones that connect to apps, some for valet, diesel engine, and others with more than one feature.

Next, you will need to read the manual and repair guide that comes with the automatic car starter kit that you chose. For this job, you will have to understand the wires in your car and be able to find them for installation. The materials required to start the project are whatever is included in the installation kit, wire tape, wire cutters, screwdriver, wire strippers, a utility knife, a soldering iron, and safety glasses. It is really important to disconnect the car battery so you don’t get shocked during installation. Once you have done this you can start the project.

Remove the panel under the steering wheel and make sure that you connect all of your wires properly. You need to solder all the connections and good quality electrical tape. For this you will use the cutters and the strippers to solder the wires together. Connecting the ground wire is really important for the functioning of the vehicle. Attach the accessory wire from the kit to the one in the car while the car is in the “off” position. Do the same thing with the ignition wire and starter wires from the kit and attach them to their car wire pairs. After this is done the same process is done for the parking light and brake wires as well as the tachometer wire to the output wire on the sensor. If there is a safety feature or remaining wires, they must be connected in the same manner to their counterparts.

The final step is to connect the battery and test to see that all the functions work and then put the electrical panel cap back on. All you really need to do it yourself is a little bit of knowledge on wiring diagrams and a guidebook. LA Insurance knows that saving money is important to a lot of people.
