Proficient remote starter retailers are trained to not only sell products but to promote how they will integrate those solutions into their clients’ vehicles. Compustar, the world leader in remote car starter technology, has recently introduced a new system controller called the DC3 to give installers a new option for vehicle integration. Automotive Data Solutions, known to most as ADS, has added several T-harness solutions that are directly compatible with the new DC3 and make remote car starter installations cleaner and less invasive. Let’s take a closer look at the new DC3 control module and the new vehicle-specific harness solutions from ADS.
Compustar DC3 Data Control Module
The new DC3 data control module from Compustar is based on the same tried and tested philosophies as the revered 7-Series controllers. With a slightly smaller footprint, the DC3 includes dual CAN bus interface modules right in the unit. The interface modules allow direct digital communication with your vehicle to make door lock and security system integration easier for your installer. On-board relays are provided for high-current ignition wire applications.
As a data solution, the DC3 is the perfect choice for clients who insist on keeping their keychains neat and tidy. Clients can press the lock button on their factory key or fob three times quickly to initiate the start sequence. If they decide to upgrade to a long-range remote control kit, all of the current Compustar RF kits are fully compatible.
The DC3 also works with the Compustar DroneMobile telematics solution — a perfect addition to a 3X Lock system. Another great option for the DC3 is the RPS Touch passcode entry system. The RPS Touch is a compact, round keypad that sticks to the inside of the windshield and allows the vehicle to be locked or unlocked using a four-digit code.
For automatic transmission vehicles that have dedicated Compustar T-Harness available, the DC3 controller is a great choice. Compustar reports that support for manual transmission vehicles will be included in the future.
Security System Upgrades
The DC3 Controller platform is fully upgradeable with several accessories. The FT-ALARMIT-KIT adds a high-output siren and the innovative DAS sensor. The DAS sensor includes a dual stage shock sensor, a three-axis accelerometer and a tilt sensor to monitor the vehicle for vandalism, damage and attempted theft. Compustar also offers a battery backup solution for the DC3 controller. Even if a thief cuts the main battery wiring, your Compustar security system will remain fully functional to protect your vehicle.
ADS Platform-Specific T-Harness Solutions
Just as iPhone owners typically buy iPod/iPhone-certified accessories, the ADS T-Harnesses are designed and tested to work on your specific vehicle. These harnesses utilize OEM-quality connectors and top-quality pins and sockets to provide years of reliable performance. The harnesses are designed for a neat and tidy installation and are pre-loomed to integrate nicely with the existing wiring in your vehicle.
T-Harness solutions are available for vehicles from the following manufacturers:
Dodge, Chrysler, Ram, Jeep, Fiat, Maserati, Ford, Lincoln, Toyota, Lexus, Scion, Chevrolet, Buick, Cadillac, Pontiac, Saturn, GMC, Hummer, Suzuki, Nissan, Infiniti, Honda, Acura, Volkswagen and Mazda.
