These remotes were easy to program,once I got the directions(they did not come in the package).I love the feedback you get from the remote when the car starts


Cons: No directions in package on how to install antenna,where to plug it in module

iDatastart RF2312A RF Kit

Gary from Beavercreek, OH on 1/22/2019

Easy install with existing idatastart remote start. Took about 15 minutes to install and the programming was seamless. If the programming does not work you will have to reset the module and reprogram it to the remotes. Module does not need to be reflashed.

Pros: Easy install.

Cons: Directions have to be looked up on the website. Programming instructions are found on the idata start you install previously to this accessory.

Product Research


Overview: The ADS transmitter kit provides 2-way communication for activating you iDatastart HCX remote start module (sold separately). This 1-button remote system uses FM technology for up to 3000 feet of transmitting/receiving range.

Functions: The RF2312A 2-way remote features a single button on the front side which is pre-programmed for Lock/Arm, Unlock/Disarm, and Engine Start/Stop. A single LED at the top of the remote will light to confirm when the button is pressed and a command was sent to the remote start module, and will light afterwards to confirm that that command was performed. A single press of the button will Lock/Arm or Unlock/Disarm while pressing and holding the button will activate Engine Start or Engine Stop if the engine is already running.

Antenna: Included with the RF2312A 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 RF2312A 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.
