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

"The produce looks like a nice item but the directions are very short on info for the average DIY to install - I have been working on cars and pickups for over 20 years and I have more testing equipment than your normal DIY - I am looking for other places to help with the install directions or I am going to have to take it to a electrical professional for the installation and that means I should have taken it to them to start with and saved money by taking it to them in the beginning"

This one is a dud

"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."
