Quality remote kit

Crutchfield customer from Thaxton, VA on 5/14/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This kit was bought to add remote functionality for my vehicle. They work great. Distance seems to be pretty decent and I don't find that I get too many accidental presses. My kit didn't show where to plug it into the module(there is no instructions with anything iDatastart has). But I finally figured it out.

Pros: Distance, quality and ease of install

Cons: Instructions as to where to plug into iDatastart module would make it much easier for the DIY crowd.

Good remote

YKim from Fx Station, VA on 11/20/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Works just fine, it's a remote. Button "click" feels solid. Documentation is good. Range is acceptable for me, but the 3000ft range is questionable, I assume it's 3000ft with clear line of sight. Realistically, you'll never have a clear line, unless you live in the dessert. A idatastart remote is required for some vehicles. Although the factory remote on my 2014.5 Camry would start the car (press lock 3 times), it would not unlock the car after it was started remotely. By design, the Toyota's disable the factory remote once the car is started. Thank you Crutchfield, for notifying me of this limitation before shipping the remote start.

Pros: Great remote Easy installation

Cons: None

Product Research

Features

Overview: The ADS transmitter kit provides 1-way communication for activating you iDatastart HCX remote start module (sold separately). This 5-button remote system uses FM technology for up to 3000 feet of transmitting/receiving range.

Functions: The RF1151A remote features 4 main buttons along the front panel, which are pre-programmed for Lock/Arm, Unlock/Disarm, Trunk/Hatch Release, engine Start/Stop, and a 5th Function button (F) on the side of the remote that's used for multi-button functions. A blue LED at the top of the remote lights when any button is pressed to indicate a command was sent to the remote start module. The remotes can be programmed for up to 30 functions, all accessed using combinations of the 5 buttons. Additional features include; Valet Mode, Panic, Silent Lock/Unlock, Passive Lock&Arm, Ignition Lock, Extended Runtime, Turbo Mode (allows engine to cool down before shutting engine off), and more.

Antenna: Included with the RF1151A remote controls is a 3-1/4" long-range antenna for achieving a maximum transmit/receive range of up to 3000 feet. The antenna features an adhesive backing, for mounting it high up on a dash or console, and a 98" cord that plugs directly into the iDatastart module. Two LEDs and a small push-button on the antenna are used to program additional or replacement remote controls. Up to 4 remotes can be programmed to the iDatastart module.

Owner's Card: Operating instructions for the RF1151A remotes can be accessed via the included Owner's Card. This features a QR code that can be scanned with a smartphone or tablet and will pull up the online instruction manual.

I don't know if it matters what series you have, HA, HC, etc but if I remember correctly, once you remote start the car with the factory key fob, unlock the car, insert the key and turn to the on position. Press the brake pedal. This is called the remote takeover procedure. Turn off your car, remove the key, exit the vehicle and close the door. Lock the car with the new remote. If you have two remotes you may need to redo this process one more time for the next remote. I hope this helps. Dave
