      product burned up after 3 times trying to start a 40hp Mercury outboard motor.I think just not heavy duty enough for amperage. Probably good for cars though.

                  I'm glad to help you! The remote starter is only to be used to bump the engine over or to start when performing service. It is never to be used as a regular starting procedure for the vehicle.

                  A:

                  No, the Sunpro Remote Starter Switch - Part No. CP7853 will not cause any damage to the starter. However, if the vehicle is equipped with an engine “HOT” indicator, the lamp test circuit which is in the ignition system could be damaged if the remote starter switch is energized with the ignition switch in the “OFF” position. For any further assistance please feel free to call us at: 1-877-238-2623 or visit the nearest Advance Auto Parts store and one of our Parts Pros will gladly assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.

                • A:

                  The remote starter connects at the starter. As such, it bypasses the clutch switch. It does not require the ignition to be switched on for cranking, but does require the ignition to be on for start (unless you provide an alternative current to the ignition coil (ignition system) "hot-wire"). being able to crank the engine with the ignition off is particularly useful for positioning the engine at top dead center, or as otherwise required (for manual valve adjustment for example).

              • Q:

                I was told that keeping the ignition switch in the "on" position while the car is not running will burn up my ignition coil. Is there something I should disconnect while using a remote starter to bump the crank, that will keep that from happening ?

                  A:

                  I have never heard of the ignition coil being burnt out from leaving the key in the on position. I know that doing that will drain your battery. Using this, you do not need to have the key in the on position anyway. This bypasses everything.

                  one to the positive on the battery and the other on the positive of the starter

                • A:

                  one to the positive on the starter solenoid incoming positive wire (from battery) the other to the positive wire going to the starter. the ground will be its own track and go through the transmission bell housing or block depending on the application. this is a whole lot easier than dancing back and forth from the driver's seat.
