Can a remote starter be fit into the existing system on a new Volvo? Is there one that can be dealer installed? If not which brand might be best?<br>Thanks for any advice.

Re: Remote Starter (gcmomo)

Circuit City installed a DEI Viper remote start and alarm in my '98 S70. It took them an entire day and when I picked up the car they asked me not to tell any of my friends with Volvos where I got it installed!<br>System works great...but they sure had a tough time with the install. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Remote Starter (bjack43)

I have a 1998 V70 and I just had a Viper 550ESP installed. Which Viper is in yours? I have some gripes about my install: doors cannot be unlocked the second time (I must arm and disarm the system to make sure all locks are open), when the remote start is active, the headlights are blinking along with turning signals. What is your experience with those issues?

Re: Remote Starter (ikorman)

I have the same Viper model. It appears that all of my functions work with one exception. I have to unlock the car...remote start...and then re-lock the doors. It has something to do with the interior light coming on and setting off the alarm. Circuit City has still not figured it out...but they are trying. I have no problem with the headlights - only the parking lighhts come on.
