Remote Starter - Genesis Coupe

I have a 2010 Genesis Coupe 3.8 Track w/ an auto tranny. When I picked it up from the dealer, they told me they couldn't put in a remote starter (they claimed Hyundai doesn't make the part yet and the only other option would be to hook it up through the computer, which they didn't want to do.)

I know after-market remote starters exist, but I'd rather not pay for it considering it was in the contract with the dealer, though I'd rather not wait the "maybe 30 days, maybe longer" time frame the dealer gave me on 9/10/09.

Anyone have a factory remote starter in their GC?
Maybe someone else ran into the same problem at the dealer?
Maybe the dealer isn't telling the truth (which would make it the 5th time that's happened so far)?

I don't think the aftermarket side has one yet because their not releasing the ecu wiring diagram. I'm sure they will get one sometime but I still think it is to new.

I would honestly just sit tight and wait on the dealer that way there can't be any warranty issues.

Are you doin' it to warm the car before you get going (in the winter: in the summer, totally no need. )?

If so, consider a block heater instead: less wear on the car (it's not idling to get warm, and it's starting with warm oil, rather than cold and warming the oil while you wait in the house), and honestly, more effective, from my experience. If you put a timer on the plug, you can have it come on 4 hours before you leave for work in the morning, car's almost at tempterature when you start it, which means you've got heat in seconds, rather than minutes.

All you gotta do is remember to plug the damn thing in.

Just a thought!

Thats a really good idea... if we get another winter in Chicago like last winter were in trouble. Maybe I should get one while I'm thinking about it.

That's an excellent suggestion boozysmurf, and one that didn't even cross my mind. Unfortunately, my car isn't parked overnight anywhere near an AC outlet, so I don't see that being a viable option. And yes, I plan to use it specifically for cold weather starts up here in MA.

Thanks boostedgen - at this point, I agree that I'll be best served just waiting until the dealer's able to pull it off.

I have found that more than a few aftermarket remote start options tend to cause more problems than they solve.

I can't speak regarding the GC specifically, but I have inquired on other vehicles (ie: G37).

While remote starters can be usually be installed, dealerships tend to frown on it because they have to farm it out to a third party and "can't speak for the quality of the work".

The situation isn't as dire now, but I could definitely have used one of these when I was at University (and had no garage).

Unfortunately, there's still a general air of "What do you want one of those for?" at many dealerships. I have a heck of a time explaining to people why I want a block heater, FFS.

Let me know how you make out with the OEM unit (I hadn't heard they were even making one for the GC). Just hope it's not like the OEM ones in GM vehicles; they have a temp sensor and won't even engage unless the engine temp is below -18C (my uncle found that out the hard way).

I'll def post an update once it's done, but the dealer said it could be anywhere from 30-60 days or longer.

(Course I had to put up a fight about not signing their "IOU" since the slip said it was only valid for 30 days and they said it would take at least 30 days for the part to come out, but that's a diff story! )

I actually got an ad just yesterday for remote starters. Not factory, but supposedly "Genuine Hyundai".

No mention of one for the GC though.
