Other features include relays on-board for ignition and accessory, starter disable outputs and extra channels.

Parking Light Flash: Parking light output is a great feature to have in a remote starter. When the vehicle is started by remote, your parking light will either flash or stay on constant for confirmation to the owner that the vehicle has been successfully started.

Keyless Entry Support: This feature will lock and unlock the doors by the press of a button. This feature is also very nice as it will make sure your doors are locked while the vehicle is running. This will keep honest people honest.

Factory Alarm Arm / Disarm: If your vehicle has a factory installed alarm system, this is a must. These are output wires trigger the factory alarm system in your vehicle under remote start and keyless entry conditions so it will not interfere with the remote starter.
