Can I use CarDefender if I already have a car alarm installed?
Yes. Although a car alarm may not protect your vehicle it may help protect any valuables you leave inside your car. CarDefender works great in conjunction with any car alarm as an additional and separate layer of protection.
Is five seconds enough time to allow me start my vehicle?
Yes. Although five seconds does not sound like a lot of time it actually is more than sufficient to start your vehicle.
Can I use CarDefender on a vehicle other than a car?
Yes. CarDefender can be used on any vehicle that has an electronic component that is required to run the engine. You simply disable that component. We have installed CarDefender in work trucks, motorhomes, sandbuggys, boats, even Harley Davidsons & Honda Goldwings.
