    I went to my local compustar pro dealer today. They said because I have a “g key” compustar hasn’t got their remote start system to work with that yet. Does anyone know of a remote start system that works with this particular key?

    the tacomas have a key with a chip in them that the truck detects. aftermarket remote start systems needs to mimic that chip and for some reason two are needed. maybe a slave key works too, its been awhile since my remote start install.

    The 12V solutions kit is all plug and play. You can install yourself and works with our G key. I will be installing it after Christmas.

    Basically there's a chip inside the key. On anything that requires 2 keys 1 key is permanently attached to the vehicle, hidden, near the ignition switch. That basically bypasses the anti-theft device that is the chip in the key. Your vehicle is now more easily stolen. Another method is to bypass the anti-theft device entirely which is what any system that doesn't require 2 keys does.

    The 12v solutions kit doesn’t say anything about requiring 2 keys. So I’m assuming that kit is just plug and play no permanently attaching of a key

    What does the remote look like? I want to go with the long range remote but I am worried I will hate it.
