How Do I Know Which Remote to Buy?
While shop.myfirstech.com displays most Compustar remotes, you will want to make sure you purchase a remote that is compatible with your system’s antenna.
The best way to do this is to purchase the same remote that you used before. However, many of our remotes look similar, so you will want to confirm the model number of your remote. In the event of a broken remote, you can find the model number on the back of your remote like so:
If you can’t find your remote, that’s ok! Your next option is to confirm your antenna part number. Your remote start antenna is usually located on the front windshield towards the top. Often, it will be tucked into a corner or behind the rearview mirror so that it doesn’t block your field of vision. This is an example of a Compustar antenna.
Once you have confirmed your remote antenna, use the search function on shop.myfirstech.com and type in your antenna model number. The results will show replacement remotes that are compatible with that antenna.
