A. Yes, it will, and it will give you at least 800 feet of range, as opposed to the 50-100 feet you get from the keyless entry system. You also can add a number of convenience features to your remote starter, including:
- Security alarm that will notify you if a cylinder is punched or a window is broken

No more melting while you wait for your car to cool down during the hottest months of the year!
