Remote Starter FAQ

What kind of warranty do I get with my install?

For over 22 years we have always guaranteed our work for you.  We offer a full manufacturer warranty on all parts used for your install and a no-hassle lifetime warranty on our labour.  We’re always here to help if you need us.

Does a remote starter void my manufacturer warranty on my vehicle?

NO!  This is a very common misconception that we would love to clear up.  As ministry-certified 310K installers, our work does not void any warranty and you are protected by the Canada Consumer Protection Act (similar to the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act in the USA).  In fact, we install our systems into brand new vehicles on behalf of local dealerships daily.  Our work is trusted and we always stand behind it for you.

What brands do you install?

Our favourite systems to install are iDataStart and Fortin.  We love and trust these brands and have been working with them for many years.  The exact one we use sometimes varies by vehicle, but we explore all options for you to get you the best features available and the best pricing possible.

I took my truck in late fall to have a remote starter installed, the crew did a great job. Just had the truck back in to install an apple car play. Once again they knocked it outta the park. Before ordering parts to connect the rear view camera they reached out to confirm the price and if it was ok to proceed. Once spring comes I’ll be going back for them to tint my windows. Always great service and top notch customer service

If you wanna dodge your Ram pickup from been stolen look no further, DDF Automotive has everything you need. From sophisticated car alarms to tracking and recovery systems. Very professional, very good customer service, friendly people, explained to me everything well and gave me a reasonable price. Now I can sleep without worries. I’ve had the rustproof done in 2 of my vehicles at this location as well, I’m very pleased with their work .

I contacted DDF wondering if they could install a stereo for me, they were very quick to respond and set up an appointment for me right away, they ordered the parts for me extremely fast and just in about 4 days they were working on my car! Cheryl and Jacqueline helped me out through all the steps to be able to do this as soon as possible, and Eric was able to do everything in about an hour and a half for a good price, Thank you DDF!
