Looking for words of wisdom on a two way remote start install for a 2013 Acura TSX wagon with navigation. I didn't see it listed on the page. Picked one up with 26,000 Miles one owner that's like brand new like it was only driven to church on sundays Don't need crazy distance smart phone use. Want to do away with the OEM key fob still have the same functions on remote start remote "door locks open lock,windows down,rear hatch open close" remote start to work with OEM security system. I need to put the key in the ignition to start it. Want to be able to be turn on the rear window defroster automatically in the winter and turn it off for summer use of the remote start.
Considering a compustar 4900

compustar rs1-dc3 with ADS-THR-HA3 t-harness is a very easy install. only 3 wires to do (2 lights and rear defrost) everything else is plug and play as long as it automatic transmission. just need the flasher but guides and flashing are free.
or the compustar 4605s-kit is the same brain and same t-harness but adds on the 2 way (4 button) remote and a single way (4button) remote[CM-DC3]-(Acura_TSX_2013_9661)-EN_20210923_020830.pdf

viper ds4+ with THHON4 t-harness is about the same but you have to be a dealer to be able to flash it and get diagrams. works with both auto/manual transmissions

both (dc3 and ds4+) come with the standard one button remotes (they do lock/unlock/remote start) but upgrades are easy to purchase and program. vipers come with a short range Bluetooth free smart start but its slow and unreliable

31 years as a installer. Favorite thing to install/topic are remote starts/car alarms. Stop using test lights!!!
