The new DS series remote starters are designed to work exclusively thru the vehicle’s Canbus using a Databus interface module. There are 2 Data Ports, one for Fortin and one for ADS iDatalink. The DS series will not work as a stand alone system.

The DS series is ideal for Push to Start vehicles and new Chryslers that have no ignition wires at key cylinder. These vehicles start thru data and require a bypass module to interface with the vehicle computer. Many of these vehicles have a “T” harness Plug-In for the bypass module that will connect directly to the data port of the DS module. In most cases no extra wiring will be necessary for remote starting the vehicle.

Some of the new features include, OEM remote integration with 3 press lock = Remote Start. 4 remote outputs to control left and right sliding doors, gas cap and trunk release without any extra wiring. The system can also be programmed as a 1-Way or 2-Way system by just changing the antenna and remotes. There are 26 options to customize the system to your needs.

Unlike other data systems, the DS series has extra outputs to operate the parking lights and car horns for remote start confirmation.

Start your engine with the push of a button and confirm your commands have been sent from up to 3000ft from your vehicle. The Cool Start™ DS-7 system is a 2-Way FM / FM paging remote engine starting system that uses (1) 2-Way Rechargeable LCD transmitter and (1) 1-way "sidekick" transmitter to operate. The 2-way pager uses simple LCD graphics, audible tones and an enhanced white and red backlit screen for confirmation of all commands and events of the system. Keyless entry and trunk pop are included with this system as well as auto locking and unlocking with ignition. Other features include: Twin data ports, tachometer sensing, horn honk and extra auxiliary outputs through data with the use of a data module.
