Wanting to know about this too. I am debating on either having the dealer install the factory one, or having an aftermarket installed. I want to know how well the factory one works. What kind of range does it have?Hey all, anyone looked into or installed a remote start kit to their Kona Limited?
Hyundaishop.com sells an OEM one for the KONA.Well, today just made an appointment to have an after market "viper" unit installed. Simply extra button for remote start, only change will be when running on remote start the car door will only unlock with remote start button. All other times it will work oem control. Question of door handle opening while running, seems to be yes ? Been told, Hyundia does not sell remote start kits until they OEM creates them with harness connectors ! Dealerships are not allowed to splice into wires for installations ! So I do not know how dealerships are selling aftermarket kit add ons under the "Dealership contract" ? Also it takes over a year for oem harness adaptable kits to be created by Hyundia , so I am told again. My quote is $300 for install. Avital unit would cost $50 more but identical unit used, just a name change. Longer range units will go up $100-200 more if desired, like led display key remote. Open to comments, same installer does installations for same dealer I purchased vehicle from. I got short range unit, only need 30 ft to car for control, view from window, and tail lights will lite when remote started. OH, Kona SEL with pkg. not limited.
