RS160 Remote Starter


    The RS160 system comes with:

    Control module:

  • Two 5-button remote transmitters with built-in fixed small antennas
  • Extended range receiver designed to maximize the operating range of the remote transmitters —Up to 1000 feet range
  • Status LED - Red illuminated indicator that provides system status information
  • Valet/Service Mode switch - Used to disable the remote starting system when the vehicle needs to be serviced or turned over to a parking attendant

    Safety:

  • Brake pedal shutdown - Shuts down the RS160 when the brake pedal is pressed
  • Hood pin switch protection - Prevents the engine from being started when being serviced
  • Valet Mode - Allows you to temporarily disable the remote starting feature when the vehicle is being serviced

    Other Features:

  • Tach learning
  • Gas or diesel vehicles
  • Remote start and run the vehicle for 12 or 24 minutes depending on the run time selected
  • Pit stop mode - Allows you to remove the ignition key and exit the vehicle while keeping the engine running during short stops
  • Auto Cold Starting - Automatically starts the vehicle every two hours and runs for the preset run time
  • Features tachless remote start capability. With tachless, there is no need to connect to the vehicles tachometer to sense when the car has started. The remote starter senses the car starting by the starter software reading the state of the engine though the ignition system. Tachless capability allows faster and easier install.

  • Remote keyless entry (door lock/unlock)
  • Remote trunk release
  • Dome light control

"RS160 - I have been installing and using remote starters for 15 years. I love them. This one is a dud. Allow me to explain.
Installation: First, the instructions are wrong. Button 3 (trunk) is below button 2 and button 4 (start) is below button 1. If you will change this on your paper copy, everything will be good. All programming hinges on this crucial knowledge.
Daily use: Range is excellent. Experience is frustrating. Button 3 and 4 are not special buttons (i.e. they don't require a high pressure push nor are they recessed) so expect an occasional false start or trunk pop if the button pushes itself in your pocket. Starting is needlessly complicated. It requires two precisely timed button presses. The parking lights flash only briefly, so if you miss the flash, you don't know that your car will be starting in 5 seconds. Trunk pops are a unique experience. You must press the button for 3 seconds. My system might then (about half the time) unlock the doors rather than pop the trunk. Then you must press the trunk button again. Sometimes it works, sometimes it unlocks the doors again. In the 15 seconds it takes to do this, you could have easily unlocked the trunk with your key. Avoid this model if it's not too late. A bad design.

"Great product, starts everytime. Bad customer service on the manufacturer, not on JC Whitney. I am a automotive technician and the diagrams included are junk. If you can find a accurate schematic for your vehicle and are proficient in using a multimeter, not a terrible project. Though if your not good at wiring then choose a more DIY friendly model or have a shop install it. Besides the lack of instructions for installing and programing, I enjoy mine much so. Very nice in the cold weather."

"I bought this for my 2009 Honda Accord and 2005 Vibe, when I went to install it the shop informed me that I needed a bypass switch so I called the company who made the item and they never called me back. I also looked everywhere to see if I could find the answer since no one wanted to talk to me. 3 days latter I went back to get it installed. It ended up costing me another 110.00 dollars just for the switch. After getting it installed It worked, but it only starts and shut off the car, and unlock the doors but nothing else. So if you are buying it for the additional features don't."
