    Default remote start

    does anyone know if adding aftermarket remote start will void a warranty?

    it shouldnt, it doesnt replace anything it just is a piggy back system, most aftermarket will still allow full function of the factory key fob as well. If you want the best get COMPUSTAR! I have tested my starter at almost 3 miles from my vehicle

    It shouldn't void your warranty - as long as it is professionally installed. If you were to install it yourself, you would definitely void the warranty of the remote starter, and likely the vehicle warranty as well.

    And alot of the newer GM's come w a factory remote start, so I am sure its not a problem.

    well, if you take it to an authorized dealer it won't void, but if done backyard mechanic style I dare say it would kill the warranty.

    This more often a true quote, as the Authorized dealer is more experienced(Yeah right), but they will
    more often than not try to place the failure on your lack of experience, not to say all will, but there the ones out there that will. I know this first had from the places that I had worked in the past. So if your good and know what your doing stand your ground and make your case........ (NO) this is not an option, sorry Mr. Service writer.....
