Remote Start 2017 RAV4 Hybrid

My dealer said he is unable to supply a factory type remote starter for my 2017 RAV4 Hybrid. I called another dealer and found out they did not show a remote start device for this model. Has anyone purchased a Toyota remote start or any other remote start device for this model?

The Toyota brochures show a remote start as an option. What gives here?

Not an OEM that I've seen, just aftermarket, try using the Search this forum box, it's real handy.

I have a 2016 Hybrid and I ran into the same issues. I was told that there was not a remote starter for the hybrid. I eventually found a dealer that uses a third party to install remote starters. If I am not mistaken, they installed the regular Toyota remote starter, and I have not had any issues with it.

If I were you I would wait until around BlackFriday when BestBuy always has good deals on remote starters. I got the compustar cs41002-s 2-way kit NOV 20th and had it installed for 245.00 on my 2011 rav4. (I had to wait 3 weeks for an appointment to get it installed). They also had a Viper 2 way installed for 299.00.

Below is a 1 -way starter for 299.00 if you cant wait until NOV.

To see if you car is compatible with this system you can check here.

you can call the Geek Squad at 1-800-433-5778 with any questions you might have and to find out if there are any additional parts or charges.

It can wait until November, but I wish Toyota model would show up!

Thanks for the information. I can wait. I would feel so much happier if it was a genuine Toyota remote starter. That is unlikely to happen.

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

You are right of course, but it does not seem logical. Both hybrid and non hybrid feature push button start. Aftermarket companies have the remote starts for sale. Why would Toyota ignore the hybrids?
