NAPERVILLE, IL--Nov. 25, 2013: For people who truly despise the thought of having to get into cold vehicle this winter, there is some relief available at the Aftermarket Department at Toyota of Naperville. The experts at Toyota of Naperville handle a wide variety of remote starters in Naperville, IL that they can install on a customer's vehicle; based on need and budget. The advantage of having a remote starter installed in a vehicle is more than somewhat obvious. It offers owners the ability to have their vehicle all warmed up and ready for a comfortable ride to work. Once the weather starts to turn back to something befitting a civilized society, that same remote car starter that was installed by Toyota of Naperville can be used to keep a vehicle cool in the summer months.

Many Toyota vehicles already come with remote starters preinstalled and provide the basic functions associated with such a device. However, there are some models available that are bit more flexible and have more to offer than the original equipment manufacturer remote starter that came preinstalled in the vehicle. Most of the remote starters that are installed by the Aftermarket Accessories Department at Toyota of Naperville have a programmable and changeable running time of 12, 24 or 60 minutes. The effective range of the remote starters also varies depending on the model. Some will work from up to 2,000 feet away, while others are controlled through a compatible smartphone, thus having a nearly unlimited range.

A common concern with having remote starters installed on a vehicle is that it will make them susceptible to theft. While there is no really perfect way to totally protect a car, truck or SUV from being stolen, adding a remote starter doesn't really increase the risk at all. A potential thief cannot happen upon a vehicle that has been running after being started remotely and just drive off. When a vehicle has been started by remote, the driver must insert the key and go through a sequence to make the vehicle able to be driven. Each particular remote starter system has its own sequence.
