Step-by-Step Remote Starter Installation Kit


Nothing starts your morning better than getting into a warm vehicles on a cold winter morning or getting into a cool car on a hot summer afternoon! The 1Z-VSS is our industry-standard range remote start system that has the ability to start your vehicle from 1,000' away.

The 181BPR-VSS is designed for, and only compatible to, vehicle's NOT equipped with any type of OEM Anti-Theft systems and/or OEM digital power door lock circuits; Incompatibility examples would be, any of GM's Passlock anti-theft systems, Ford's PATS Keys, Chrysler/Dodge's SENTRY Keys, etc. Any vehicles equipped with anti-theft systems must use the next model up...available by clicking HERE.

2 Remote Starter Remotes 
Includes Two 1-Button Remote Transmitters:
 Two 1-button remotes that get up to 1200' range. 1-year replacement warranty on remotes, 2-years on the rest of the system.

Activate Remote Starter Button Icon 
Safety 2-Press Remote Start Activation:
 The remote starter is activated by pressing the remote start circle arrow icon button on the remote 2X within 3 seconds. This setting helps prevent any accidental activation that could occur with a single press activation.

Parking Lights Flash 
Parking Lights Flash Confirmation:
 Visual confirmation that you activated the remote starter: The system will flash the vehicle's parking lights right after you activate the remote starter. Then it will turn the parking lights on solid shortly afterward to confirm that the vehicle is running by the remote starter.

HVAC Control, Pre-Heat/AC Activation:

Pre-setting your vehicle's heat settings prior to exiting your vehicle will enable you to pre-warm the interior and defrost the windshield when your vehicle is running via the remote starter. Same with the vehicle's AC, just pre-set the AC settings where you like it and it will pre-cool the interior on those hot days from it sitting in the sun.

Diesel Compatible/Adjustable Delay Timer:
 Programmable crank delay settings for Diesel engines. The system will be pre-set for you with any of the pre-set times available. Your choice of "wait-to-start" times are 10, 15, 20, or 45 seconds before crank to allow for proper glow-plug warming. You will be able to easily change this setting if need be after installation. Industry-standard time is 15 seconds.

Multiple Remote Start Run Times
Multiple Remote Start Run Times:
 The system has multiple remote start run times: Choices are 5, 10, 15, 20, 45, or 60 minutes. You can easily adjust the run time yourself anytime after installation.

Pit Stop Mode 
Quick-Stop Mode (also Pit-Stop Mode):
 A cool feature that allows you to keep the engine running without leaving the keys in the ignition. While the engine is still running with the keys, just press the remote start button on the remote 2X, and when you turn off the ignition and remove the keys, the engine will remain running for the duration of the current remote start run time (or you can press the button on the remote 2X again to shut it down sooner).

Safety Brake Pedal Shut Down
Safety Brake Pedal Shut-Down Input: 
Mandatory connection that will immediately shut down the remote starter system if you step on the vehicle's brake pedal before you turn the ignition on (a.k.a. "key-take-over" feature).

Valet Push Button Service Mode
Valet Remote Start ON/OFF Mode:
 The system has a valet mode button built into the systems' antenna where the remote start feature can be temporarily turned off. Mainly used when servicing the vehicle.

Windshield Mounted Antenna w/Built-In Programming Button & Status LED: Commonly mounted on the inside center of the vehicle's windshield directly behind the rear-view mirror for optimal range, the antenna conveniently incorporates both the system's programming button and status LED. This eliminates any hole drilling in the vehicle and significantly reduces the number of wires needed to be run under the dash during installation.

Multiple Remotes Capability:
 The system has the ability to work with one or two additional remotes for a total of up to 4 remotes at the same time (additional remotes sold separately).

Vehicle Compatibility Guarantee: 
The 181BPR-VSS is available in the VSS platform for the majority of older vehicles equipped with automatic transmissions, gas or diesel engines, and standard keyed ignition systems (not vehicles with push-to-start buttons). You will be asked to indicate the year, make and model of vehicle the system will be installed into during ordering. If in the rare event that one of our technicians finds that the system is not compatible with your specific vehicle, we will immediately contact you, let you know if there is another system that is compatible or void the order and promptly release your payment.

3 Year Warranty: will directly repair or replace any part of system that is installed in the interior of the vehicle that's found to fail from normal everyday wear&tear for a period of 3 years from date-of-delivery (1 year on remotes). 

The VSS Advantage:

Step-by-Step, System-to-Vehicle Specific Installation Guide:
Information is Everything! No sitting with a lap-full of "spaghetti-wire" and jumping from wiring chart to manual, trying to figure out what wires are needed (or not needed) to connect to the vehicle. Each of our system's include a step-by-step, vehicle-specific installation manual that indicates exactly what wire from the system connects to what wire in the vehicle, where the wire is located in the vehicle, and how to confirm that you found the correct wire using the VSS kits supplied LED style test probe.

LED Style Test Probe Included: 
No need for using awkward multi-meters that indicate voltage level's that can confuse polarity readings and require the use of two probes and a bare spot on the wire in order to take a reading. Each of our VSS kits includes an easy-to-use LED style test probe to use along with the VSS kits' step-by-step vehicle-specific installation manual. This test probe simplifies the procedure of finding and testing for the correct wire in your vehicle by lighting a green or red LED to indicate the target wire's polarity (explained in each step of our vehicle-specific install manuals).

For example, if the step in the VSS guide indicates that the vehicle's parking light wire is a solid blue wire found running into the rear of the vehicle's headlights switch and will show a positive polarity when the parking lights switch is turned on, you simply connect the probes alligator clip to chassis ground, stick the tip of the probe thru the wire's insulation and turn the vehicle's parking light's ON & OFF a few times, and if its the correct blue wire, it will light the red LED in the handle of the test probe at the same time the switch is turned ON & OFF! (again, explained in each step of the VSS manual). It just can't be made any simpler than this!

Tachless Mode:
Designed to eliminate the need to run a wire out under the hood to connect to the vehicle's tachometer wire and then having to program the tach signal to the remote starter system: The tachless mode monitors the vehicle's voltage levels, current and crank time during start to maintain a trouble-free remote starter activation. Applicable to newer and well-maintained vehicles with gas or hybrid engines only.

Includes Vehicle Specific Extras: 
To avoid the inconvenience of getting into the middle of an installation and finding out that you need to stop and run to the auto parts store for a relay or radio shack for some resistor's or whatever, we include any needed extra relays w/harness (for example, for power trunk activation, 3rd Accessory, etc.) and/or diodes, resistors, voltage inverters, etc. needed for your specific vehicle.

Installation Connector Package: 
Each VSS system includes 3 different sizes of quick-connect "T-Tap" connectors with male spade connectors pre-crimped to the ends of the wiring of the system for making quick connections from the system to your vehicle's wiring. Also included are crimp cap connectors for connecting wires end-to-end and self-tapping screws with ground loop connectors for making chassis ground connections to the vehicle. Nylon zip ties are also supplied for securing wiring, control module, and sensor placement.

Vehicle Compatibility Guarantee: 
You will be asked to indicate the year, make and model of vehicle the system will be installed into during ordering. If in the rare event that one of our technicians finds that the system is not compatible with your specific vehicle, we will immediately contact you, void the order and promptly release your payment.
