#15 of 24 remote starter

I have had an astrostart, a python and now a compustar. They all worked good. Since you don't have the FASTkey, any should work great for you.
I learned after the install that if I use the tiny key in the FastKey rather than just trying to turn the knob...the car doesn't have to shut off. It then works like any other auto start would.

#17 of 24 Latest Update on remot starter for Outlander XLS
Jun 03, 2007 (5:04 pm)
I noticed nobody has really updated this post in a while. I was wondering if their was any new discoveries on a remote starter that bypasses the smart key? Also that has alarm capabiliies along with two way paging. If anybody can give me an update I would appreciate it. I'm scheduled to get my XLS in August so I would like to get the low down so I'm not screwed for the cold Canadian winter that will creep up fast like it always does.

I have a compustar 2 way auto start. I do not have the extra alarm stuff, but I'm sure it's available if you want it. It is the 2w900fm model. Check out the web site.
It can work 2 different ways with the smart key. You can start the car while away from the vehicle. The smart key entry will still unlock the door when you are near. Then you have the choice to either kill the start by pressing the brake and restart the car....OR WHAT I DO...is pull off the knob over the ignition and place the small key into the ignition and turn the ignition to the on position. This way it works like any other remote start system. I hope that answers your questions. In the future, there may be a better way to make it work, but for now, I'm happy it at least works!!

I have a call into my installer to find out what type of module was used. I'll let you know as soon as I hear back. I did not have to use a key for the install.

Any news on this?
Remote start is a requirement for my wife. This small detail, is actually gating me from buying the Outlander XLS. My dealer says remote start won't work with the XLS.

I called the auto start dealer again today. His installers were gone for the day...but the info he gave me is that Astroflex makes it. It is the Mitsubishi-2 module if that makes any sense?? If you have further questions....call Team Electronics in Fargo ND at 701-492-9009 and ask to talk to an installer. I beleive Astroflex is the company who makes the "AstroStart" starters....so that is what they must have used. This module was what "bypassed" the security stuff so I didn't have to have a spare key wired in to the car. My auto start however is made by Compustar...so somehow it works together.
Good Luck. It DOES work!!! and it is FANTASTIC!!!
