Compustar 2Way Remote Start RF-2WG9R-SP

I purchased this system for my wifes 08' Silverado back in January 2018. it no longer works consistently. Whats the average lifetime expectancy for these remote starters? I feel it shouldve lasted a bit more than 1 year.

Re: Compustar 2Way Remote Start RF-2WG9R-SP

Hello daniel1507,


Generally speaking, a good remote starter could outlast the life of the vehicle. At the very least, you should be seeing quite a few years use out of them prior to having any issues. However, as with anything, there is the chance of having one unit fail prematurely as most electronics are mass manufactured and defects can be an issue. That being said, do you recall when you made this purchase exactly? I ask because it may still be under the manufacturers one-year warranty. Alternatively, did you opt into the Geek Squad protection plan?
