Do I have to give up a key arctic start remote start

Do I Have to Give Up a Key?

Arctic Start remote car starters use a proprietary technology called KLON to mimic your car's key signal to securely start your engine without the key being physically present in the vehicle.

If your vehicle supports KLON, a key is not required for remote start installation - one of the many things that sets Arctic Start apart!
