How to program a remote to a Push-To-Start vehicle?

In order to program a Compustar remote to a Push-To-Start (PTS) vehicle you must:

  • Press and release the start or ignition on button 15 times.
  • Immediately following the press button 'cycle' press and release the lock button on the remote.

Note:

  • The push button must be pressed consistently at about 1/2 second intervals. 
  • During this process the engine will not be started at any time.
  • Be sure not to press the foot brake down at any time during this process as it will cause your vehicle to start.

This process will work for most PTS vehicles. However, it may be more difficult to program remotes to both Honda and Toyota vehicles due to the speed at which the vehicle's ignition ignites. If you are unable to program a Honda or Toyota PTS through this process it is highly recommended to visit your original installer or any authorized dealer for assistance.

    If you are looking to program the Compustar brain module, you will need to visit an authorized dealer.

     

    Thank you.

    I have a 2013 Rav4 limited with push start and it worked fine last winter. We never tried it over the summer but now it will not start. 
    The remote does send the signal and everything inside and outside the car lights up like normal and the only thing it does not do is crank the engine, however the 2 way remote indicates the vehicle is running. If I open the door it shuts the car interior down (radio and fan) and remote sends the signal that it is now off. The lock and unlock are working and I don't understand what is wrong. Over the summer the WR901R-SS remote battery did die however we have charged it several times since. I have tried the above to reprogram the remote and it seems to work but still no change. Parking lights flash 3 times and then stay on when you press the start which if I read it correctly means it is functioning as it should.

    Hi Ross,

    It seems the system is receiving the commands, but not performing them. It could be a misconfiguration inside the brain module.


    There's no procedure that I can perform remotely to remove this error. Please visit your authorized dealer to physically troubleshoot the system.

    Thank and I apologize for the inconvenience.
