Remote Start Options

Looking for options for a DIY install remote start kit for a 2012 Honda Civic

I know Viper comes up but that may be a dealer install only?

Wife's SUV had an Avital system. Wasn't terribly expensive and just provided basic remote start features with a separate single button remote. I did have it installed by a shop but based on what was involved, I would say it was def DIY doable.

Oh and for extra husband brownie points, I stole the car for an afternoon and had it installed without her knowing. She then got to open the box with the remote for Christmas and couldn't wait to get the install scheduled. Joke was on her.

There was a moment of happiness that it was done but at the same token, she remembered those cold mornings where she needed to go out to warm up the car.

The ability to do this will depend on wife's ability to spot the receiver in the car (little black piece next to the mirror). I was confident Gina would miss it...

I'm sure you can find it for a better price but I did the factory setup in my mom's crv. If you have auto climate control, it'll kick that on to either heat or cool the car to like 70 degrees. Factory defog etc. No hacking wires into factory stuff, my install was plug, program, play!

As an update.

Got a fortin evo one kit. Was one of the few kits that came with the option of no wire cutting required harnesses. Did not want to hack into the ignition harness of my wife's car, so that was a big plus. Install was a breeze, only "hard" part was installing a ground eyelet. And it uses the OEM key fob, again, tried to keep things simple.

It was at the point that I thought to myself, this is going to easy, something must be wrong. Go to start, nothing. Ok, rip out module and check its software, well, looks like they didn't program it for the car it was bought for. Reloaded the updated firmware and check the options I wanted then went back outside. Now it tries to start but never catches. After a quick call to Crutchfield, they suggested reprogramming the module to the key, and voila, starts up. (apparently re flashing the module removes the linked key fob)

Overall a very cool little box, you can go to town setting it up for what you want. Diesel high idle, longer start duration, valet mode, turbo timer shut downs, alarm sensors, etc etc. Had I known about the "high tech" side of things I would have started there but my old self figured the wiring/hardware install would be worse.

Sounds like a nice system once you got it all working.
