Hey guys. I just had the compustar Pro 2 way 901 with drone (smart start) installed on my 2014 AWD RT. The install went pretty good. The shop (Dj aotu sound & security in Greenwich CT) soldered and shrink wrapped all the wires and took good care of the interior panels. The alarm works pretty well but I have found a couple of problems that I had to return to the shop twice for. After auto starting the car sometimes when I get in to drive off the car shuts off as if the key isn't in the car (security feature). Problem is the factory FOB is with me so now I have to restart manually. Not a big deal except more wear and tear on the starter. It doesn't always happen and I haven't found a pattern to why it does or doesn't do this. Next, when auto started the rear lights do not go on. Only the front parking lights light up. The installer says he can't figure out why this is. Anyone have this alarm and experience similar problems? As for when the alarm is working right, it is great. The drone which is the smart start like with the viper is awesome. The phone app works perfectly so far, (just doomed myself). The 2 way remote also works great. The distance is incredible and it shows everything you need on the LCD. Over all a good system but it is not without it's flaws. The installer seems very knowledgeable and is very accommodating but I'm wondering if the 2014 is too new and Compustar has worked out all the bugs in it's idata harness and brain for the 2014's. By the way the alarm works pretty flawlessly with the factory system. The handle lock unlock button works for arming and disarming the alarm. The unlock sensor in the door when you put your hand under it also works to disarm the system as well. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. I plan on going back new week to try to get the kinks worked out. I just hate that they have to dismantle the panel under the steering column and take out the whole glove box each time. I feel it weakens the structure of the panels/screw holes and makes them not fit as tightly as before. I don't want any unnecessary rattles while driving. Thanks in advance guys.
