Made a great gift!

This remote start works flawlessly with my 2017 Kia, the remote is easy to use, and it made a great gift right before the cold of winter arrived! (Black Friday deal made the value even better)

Frequently Asked Questions

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

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

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

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

Can I add Compustar remotes or DroneMoible to my Kia'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).
