Frequently asked questions:

Q: Why should I purchase a remote starter from Sound FX?

A: We take remote start installation very seriously at Sound FX. We begin our preparation in August for the upcoming season. From training, to ordering, to advertising, we are putting together all of the pieces that it takes to have a successful winter season. No other mobile electronics dealer in RI installs more remote starters than Sound FX. Our staff routinely stays abreast of new installation techniques and emerging technologies associated with today's vehicles. Our sales staff is also well trained and qualifies their customers to make sure that they purchase the correct product that best meets their needs. Sound FX is strictly a retail shop and does not do dealership work. We solely concentrate on our retail consumer base of clients. Our selection is second to none as we offer and stock 15 different varieties of remote start packages.

Q: What separates your installation from everyone else's?

A: We follow strict installation practices. Every remote start unit is prepped before it is installed into each vehicle, and it is integrated to look like a factory harness. Each Sound FX technician perform their installations in the same manner. We also use expensive aviation grade connectors to ensure reliability. There is no mistaking a Sound FX installation....clean, neat, and professional. Many customers never see what lurks under the dashboard of their car. We know that if you ever get a chance to see our workmanship, you will be pleased with the integrity.

Q: Does having a remote start void my factory warranty?

A: It absolutely does not. Consumers are protected by Federal Law called the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act of 1974 which says that a manufacturer cannot void a customers warranty unless the part causes a malfunction of the problem in question. For example if UHaul installs a trailer hitch to your vehicle and they wire the part into the brake lights which causes the lights to fail, then the manufacturer is not responsible for the repair. However, if you have a remote start installed, and an unrelated item fails, the manufacturer must honor the vehicle warranty.

Q: Shouldn't I just get a remote start from the dealer?

A: Not recommended. Dealers do not install remote starters themselves, in fact, they have an outside company do it for them. The installation takes place in the parking lot of the dealer, by someone whom you have never met, and will never have contact with. Also, in the event that the remote start may need servicing, you need to make an appointment just to have it looked at. Even just for a remote battery, your car may be tied up for a whole day! At Sound FX, we are always here ready to serve you.

Q: What are the additional parts that I may need?

A: Most vehicles today come with some type of immobilizer security device that is built into the key or ignition system. Car manufacturers have them in their vehicles to prevent theft. An additional interface is required to properly integrate a remote start into this type of system.

Q: How long does it take to have a remote start installed?

A: The average length of time is 2-4 hours, however we ask our customers to leave the car as long as possible. Winter is our busiest time of year and we may have 30 appointments in a single day. The longer we have your car, the more efficient we can be in delivering everyone's car in a timely manner.

Q: What is the warranty of a remote start?

A: Viper Systems carry a lifetime manufacturer warranty. The Avital brand carries a one year manufacturer warranty. All of workmanship carries a lifetime warranty.

Q: Can the systems be removed and reinstalled into a new car?

A: Yes. remote starts can be installed in 99% of vehicles. You save about $100 on average as compared to buying a new system.

Q: Can I make an appointment online?

A: Yes. You can email your information and questions to mark@soundfxonline.com for Warwick, or matt@soundfxonline.com for East Providence.
