Editor's Notes & Price Research

Written by

  • Warm up your engine and lock and unlock your doors with the Compustar CS4102-S premium 2-way LED remote start kit that comes bundled with a transponder bypass module and Geek Squad installation. Start your vehicle remotely from up to 3,000 feet away and receive 2-way confirmation on the remote transmitter.
  • This system is not compatible with manual transmission vehicles. You need to purchase the RSG6 bundle and a DAS sensor instead. Please see our forum thread for additional information. ~ persian_mafia

This bundle includes the immobilizer bypass module to bypass the chip in most vehicle keys. It also includes the labor to install the main system AND the bypass module. The bypass module labor being included in the same remote start SKU is very new to Best Buy and some installers may not know it's now included (it's been separate since BB started). As politely as you can, ask the installer to please download the latest copy of their labor SKU sheet from their resources website. That page will have a description of everything that's included. Depending on your vehicle, there may be a small extra charge for an extra relay or something. 98% of vehicles shouldn't require more than about $20 extra. German cars are the exception. Audi, VW, Benz. German car don't even bother with this bundle.

THIS SYSTEM IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH MANUAL TRANSMISSION VEHICLES!!! You need to purchase the RSG6 bundle and a DAS sensor instead.

Yes, it is compatible with push button start vehicles. But some vehicles may kill the motor when you open a door, and others will keep running. Ask or see your installer for details.

Yes, you can add smart phone control to this system. It's called Drone Mobile and the add-on is $99 installed at Best Buy. There's also a monthly service fee of $6, but you can knock that down if you pay a year up front. As low as $3.33 a month.

Got questions, ask away. I'll try to answer as many as I can, but I've got 8hrs of work today and a large install for a friend tonight. Please include your year, make, model and any trim/details when asking (push button start, etc).

My personal opinion, Compustar is head and shoulders ahead of Viper in many...many aspects. That's what I installed on my girlfriend's car and that's what I'm installing tonight on a friends (this exact bundle oddly enough).

No. I do not work for Best Buy in any capacity.

According to GeekSquad, if you have a push button start, it will shut off the engine as soon as you open the door if started by the remote. If it is a key based ignition, you have to put the key and turn it to ON or else it will turn off engine when you step on the brake.
Does it work with your car? Best to search "CompuStar" on an enthusiast forum to see how it works with your car. Ie.

Go here to check if it will work on your car !

The bypass module in this bundle will not work for you. With most systems, the installer is going to need to bury a key in the dash. Extra labor will be charged and the cost of a key from you of course. There is one exception, a system designed specifically for your vehicle. but it's pricey. The iDataStart VW2410A is the best. The VWX000A will work too, but is triggered by hitting lock on your factory fob 3 times. So factory range. I don't see these systems on BB webpage, but I know the one local to me had the VWX000A on the shelf. Not sure on price, but I know they're aren't cheap. Expect $4-$500 for the 000A.
So why use this bundle? Increased range? At any rate, yes, this bundle will work fine.
NO! This is NOT true! Yes, they did used to require two bypass modules, but the 2010 Outback only requires one now. Using the RSG6 bundle or this one, still one bypass. I highly recommend taking your vehicle to a different Best Buy location.

Input your year make and model and it will show you the firmware used with the RSG6 bundle. As you can see, it does cover the immobilizer bypass as well as factory alarm, door locks, etc.
This is NOT how it's suppose to work. The bypass module is part of a bundle and should not be returned separately. As it says on the product page. "This package price will no longer be valid if you return one of the items. See the details. Best Buy's Return Policy on Bundle Discount Items applies to this package purchase." So, it's awesome you were able to get the money for them. But don't anybody else expect it.
Two things. First, you can have the installer program it to unlock all the doors with the first press. Second, even with how it's currently set, it sounds like a timing issue. After you press unlock once, wait until that command is executed before pressing it a second time. they should all unlock on that second press. But yes, you cannot just quickly hit the button twice to unlock all doors. I know. Common complaint.

There's no way I can keep up with the questions..... I'm trying.

Unfortunately there is no "takeover" available for the 16 Tacoma. The motor will stop when the door is opened. At least the motor and cabin will be warmed up though. Smilie
1) The 4806 has more auxiliary channels than this particular system, but that's only useful if you're going to pay to have them connected/installed. So, rear defrost, heated seats, etc. That aside, this Compustar has several cool features that make it very installer friendly. And for you? You can swap out the keyfobs for any other style at any time. With Viper, you're stuck with the exact keyfobs it comes with. Break one? And that model isn't made any more? Better hunt on eBay. With Compustar, all the keyfobs work with all the systems and always will. You can switch between 1-way and 2-way systems easily.
2)This comes with the ALCA module. That's what you'll need.

Unfortunately yes.
It works with the Lancer. Not sure what year you have, but it works with them all I believe.
It will, but the vehicle will shutdown when the door is opened.Frown Buying a different system will not change this. There's currently no "takeover procedure" available for that car. At least the motor and car will be warmed up!
I can't speak on previous prices, but this is their "deal of the day".


The runtime can be increased easily if 15 mins is not long enough for you. Smilie

They legal cannot void it unless they can prove the problem you're having is due to the aftermarket part. The burden of proof is on them.

I will respond to more people. Just give me time. Work is about it get serious.

FYI, I. Bought this deal last time, installed at Geek Squad, got vehicle back only to find out the engine shuts off once you open the door after a remote start. Disappointed I was to find this out after the fact. So once I get inside I have to restart the car just as I did before installing the remote start. I think it is a Toyota thing. YMMV. 2017 Toyota Sienna.

What about push button start systems that require FOBs? Does the bypass require you give up one of your FOBs (leave it in the vehicle)? My truck locks/unlocks by touch if FOB is in range.

Just included your answer in the OP. Smilie No fob required to be left in the vehicle. What's your year, make and model?

I had a 2011 GMC Terrain with factory remote start that did this, anti-theft and all that.

Anyone have any experience with the Evolution X MR Touring? Dual clutch, not the manual transmission.

It takes 5+ minutes to get it started in the mornings since I don't drive it until it's at least warmed up, so this might be nice for me.

This was $239.00 last time someone posted about 3 weeks ago. Had it installed last week 2013 Rav4 works well no issues. I think it's been $259.00 past several weeks seems like the reg price.

I have the same issue on my 2015 Mazda 3 (push start) but not with 2010 Honday Odyssey (no push start).. I am not sure if everyone has the same problem
