Trunk & Liftgate Support

Compustar remote starters use vehicle-specific firmware to speak directly with your vehicle's internal computer. This powerful connection allows your Compustar system to safely control many factory features, such as trunk release, power lift gate, or OEM alarm.

Any of these features can be controlled from your Compustar remote or our award-winning smartphone app: DroneMobile!

"Factory Fit" Installation

Compustar remote start installation on Audi vehicles requires vehicle-specific components by iDatastart®. These components use factory-style connectors to eliminate unnecessary wire cuts during installation, ensuring the integrity of your Audi vehicle's internal wiring.

Please note: for select models, you may be required to give up a key for remote start installation. Please consult your Authorized Dealer for more information.

Audi Remote Start Reviews

compustar 5 star review

2018 Audi Q7

Great product. Works seamlessly with my Q7, antenna is barely visible from inside the vehicle, the factory fob was programmed to start with 3x press of the lock button and also came with two way fobs with excellent range. Couldn’t ask for more out of a remote starter system.

Works Great on a A3

Installer said this was the one to get for a Audi A3. Works great. With the 2500' remotes, can start the car from inside a building and car parked a long ways from the grounds. Great unit.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I purchase and install a remote starter for my Audi?

I don't see my Audi model or model year listed. Is it compatible with Compustar remote start?

Can I use my Audi's factory remote to start my car?

Will adding a remote start void my Audi's factory warranty?

Can I add Compustar remotes or DroneMoible to my Audi's factory remote starter?

What is a Control Module?

The control module is the device that is installed inside your vehicle and adds remote start functionality.

Does it matter which Compustar Control Module I purchase?

In most cases, no. All of our control modules are built with high-quality components and go through rigorous testing to provide the best remote start experience for you and your vehicle.

For certain vehicles, such as manual-transmissions, diesels, or European makes, your installer will need to use a specific control module to ensure seamless integration with your vehicle.

What is "Factory Fit Installation?"

Compustar offers "factory fit" installation t-harnesses that have factory-style connectors that plug right into your vehicle.

While "factory fit" t-harnesses greatly streamline installation, you should still trust a professional with your remote start install. Learn more about t-harnesses here.

Can I upgrade my Accessories later on?

Yes! You can always re-visit your place of installation to upgrade your system's remotes or add security sensors.

Which remotes are compatible with my Compustar system?

If your Compustar system was installed in the past 12 years, you can add any remote kit to your system.

Please note: some remote kits may offer functionality that is not supported on older control modules (e.g. Proximity Unlock on PRO T13 and PRO R5).
