edited January 2016 in Hyundai
my car is a sonata limited 2013, it has push button start.
however, I am considering to add remote start. can someone tell me what I need to do to make it happen.
I don't want to pay for the Hyundai app on my phone for remote start and everything else that they bill you for yearly.
I know on a previous car, the 2nd remote would need to be destroyed to remove the chip and copy it to the remote starter / alarm. I need advise. thank you.

    Buy the Avital remote start kit online from Amazon and a Best Buy will instal it for you for 250$

    Alternatively, buy it from Best Buy and they will install it free for you.

    That's one way, although aftermarket remote-starts are often a source of trouble. The installer has to be VERY careful what he splices into....VERY careful.

    I have done two installations at Best Buy and have had no problems.

    OK, you are a database of 2. Not a problem for someone with all the vehicle schematics and a good knowledge of automotive electronics, but Best Buy, really?

    Here's what one vendor of aftermarket remotes says:

    " be aware that attaching any aftermarket electronics product to today's vehicles without the proper know how can be extremely risky; the worst case scenario could be damaging the electronic control module (the computer) or detonating the air bag, resulting in expensive repairs.
