When clients come to Audio Garage in Fargo, one of their concerns about adding a remote starter is how it will affect their factory warranty. With so many technologies integrated into new vehicles, ensuring that the manufacturer warranty remains intact is a valid and genuine concern. Audio Garage clients are protected in two ways. Our installation methods help to ensure that the work we do is as non-invasive as possible and every warranty is governed by the guidelines of the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act. Let’s look at these important factors in detail.
The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act
The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act was created to protect vehicle owners from having warranty claims denied because they used aftermarket repair and service components. What started as a way for vehicle dealers to push their in-house oil filters and air filters quickly escalated to the point that vehicle owners were being coerced into having all their work done at the dealership.
To preserve the aftermarket automotive product industry, the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act was put in place in 1975. It says that you can use any brand of service or repair component you want. If an issue arises with the vehicle, the onus is on the factory service department to prove that an aftermarket component was responsible for the failure to deny coverage under the factory warranty.
When it comes to remote starters, the wording of the act protects consumers in the same way: If something goes wrong, the dealership has to prove it is the fault of the remote starter before being able to deny a warranty claim.
Expert Remote Starter Installation
Audio Garage uses several unique processes to ensure that our remote car starter installations will not affect a vehicle warranty. We use T-harnesses where possible to reduce the number of electrical connections we make. When we do make a connection, we solder and properly protect it to ensure that it will be secure and reliable for the life of the vehicle.
Our attention to detail includes thoughtful and carefully planned component mounting locations that promote reliable system performance while reducing their impact on other systems in the vehicle. We execute each and every step with fanatical precision.
