Remote start

Post by george » Sat Feb 17, 2018 11:19 am

Just seen a video on YouTube where someone had fitted a remote start function to their Astra. Is this option available from onstar? Has anyone had any experience with having a a remote start system fitted?

I got remote start on my Australian SRV standard. I must confess I do use it to start the car while I wait for the Mrs to finish getting ready but I'd say in cooler climates it would be handy to warm up the car before travel. (Gotta luv ya Astra K)

In hindsight, I should've got an RSV. I got an R because it's all the dealer had and at the time I needed a car ASAP... I wonder how hard it would be to retrofit the feature if possible?

The remote start function I think is available on all autos. It is not retrofitted. I tried it on mine, but it won't start. Can anyone please check if there is an option in the vehicle settings on the infotainment unit, under the remote windows, etc. there might be a function for the engine start (active/disabled). I don't have it on mine, but I think its a regional thing.

I just checked and although the menu does say "Remote lock, unlock, start", there's no engine start option. I have an Astra Innovation (like Elite in the UK). My country is Slovakia.

No option available also in France (Innovation 2016).
I will appreciate to have this possibility.

I am sure I saw a video on this on youtube. Now my bet goes it is only availbe in the UK or Germeny... or its some kind of a joke. Unfunny one at that! :)

OK, I found the video I spoke of earlier. I have no clue if its real or not (not a language I speak unforunately):

and there is a comment under the video saying that this is in fact not a stock feature, but can be purchased and installed for 350-450 eur
