THe VIP remote start from the factory shut off when you try to enter the car. It is a strange set up. You can start the car and warm it up from your home, but when you try to enter the car by using the fob or the key, the engine shuts off. So you have to start the engine again once you get in. All of the other remote starter I had in the pass didnt do this. I am wondering if anyone else out there have the VIP remote starter and does it work that way too? It just seem to me that so starting the car twice create a wear and tear on the engine and the starter.
