Remote vehicle starters around the province are getting a workout to begin the week, as the windchill is adding a bit of a chill to commutes.

Corey Hadley is the owner of Wired Up Auto here in Moose Jaw. He says people may experience some issues starting their vehicles with the extra cold weather, but many problems people may experience are easy fixes.

"Remote starters have a protection feature in it where if it gets a bit of a hefty load on it it will just stop cranking [the engine]. I guess just make sure everything is sounding like it should. Your starter motor should only crank for so long and shut itself off if its running on. Battery maintenance as well, we go through a lot of [remote starter] batteries."

One bizarre tip that Hadley confirmed works is, if your remote isn't starting your vehicle, put the key fob under your chin and try to start it. Your skull will act as an amplifier and will actually extend your fob's range.

Hadley goes on to say that with remote starters, it's all about quality.

"I believe in the 'you get what you pay for' thing. Go to somebody that specializes in remote starters. If I need brakes I go to a mechanic; if I need a remote starter I may not want that mechanic to do that. Maybe he can – but everybody has a specialty."

And finally, Hadley wants to remind those lucky enough with remote starters during the cold that the starters are something people can – and should - be using all year round.

"To me I sell them as a thing you can use year round. I use mine middle of July, middle of August – everything. A lot of people will take their key fob right off the key and throw it in the drawer during the summer. You've got air conditioning. Hit the button and away you go!"
