How can I start engine of my car remotely?

My car has 60000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

There are a number of after market options available. They require installation by someone who can read a wiring diagram and connect to the vehicles starting and PCM systems. If your comfortable working on your own car, google remote starting systems and pick out one you like.

Here is a remote starter that seems to be from a popular alarm company.

The installation requires you to tap into the exciter wire to the starter and tapping into the systems that the PCM uses to keep the fuel injectors, fuel pump, and ignition system working. All of this needs to be powered when the key is not in the ignition. If your going to do this yourself, you will need the repair manual for you car, some wiring tools, and the remote starting system. The remote system usually comes with good instruction to install them and the wiring components you will need to complete this project.

Take your time and be patient.

Good luck.
