Bulldog Security Remote Starter Review & Giveaway

I thought auto start for cars was only possible if you bought a new car. Since that is not possible for us I decided that was a luxury that I would do without. We have a 2003 vehicle that is paid for! I think many people think that if they have an older car than they just have to go without those fun features. But…. that is not the case! Did you know you can install an auto start on your car?

Introducing the Model RS82B Remote Starter System. This is a Do it yourself auto start system that YOU can do!


  • Up to 15 Minute Run Time
  • Parking Light Confirmation
  • Pit Stop Mode
  • Unlimited Tech Support
  • Install Kit & DVD Included
  • Includes Built-In Anti-Theft Bypass
  • For Vehicles Made after 1996
  • Includes EVERYTHING you need to install

I had to try this for myself and see if anyone really could install it. My husband and I are not very mechanical. We are not the type who do things on the car ourself. In fact we are the ones that make things worse when we do them ourself. So we have learn to hire people when it comes to the car! So were we able to do install the auto start?

YES! It comes with a great cd that helps clearly explain everything. We sat and watched it together. There is also a diagram online that helps explain every wire. You can see what wire goes where. We also called the customer service to be sure that our car was compatible. We did not see it in the manual and wanted to double check. And yes it was. He helped us further by explaining where to find more helpful tools online. With these tools we were able to plan it out before we touched the car. It seemed simple!

And it was! It took a careful precision and a little time but we were able to install it! And now on a HOT day I am able to cool off my car with the touch of a button. This is an amazing gift for moms who tote kids along all day long. And dads love this because they feel cool! :)

You can purchase the Remote Starter System on the Bulldog Security website for only $79.99!

  1. julie taylor says

    I’d love to win because I live in VA Beach, VA where it is 99 degrees today with the heat index of 110. It’s very humid and the air is thick. It would be so fabulous to remotely start the car and air conditioner before I leave work because it is an oven!

  2. shannon o says

    I live in Minnesota and in the winter I would love to be able to warm up my car without going out in the -20 cold to start it.

    I would love a Bulldog Security Remote Starter as an awesome going away present for my son. He is the best son a Mom could ask for; my only child, and will be going away to boot camp on August 22nd, Army, Infantry: (there was no convincing him otherwise.) He is also a “car guy,” so he would love love this!!!

  4. says

    This would be so amazing to win because living in the heat is horrible when starting my car. I have to start and run the ac for 5 minutes to cool it down first.

  5. Mike says

    It is interesting that so many people here would use this for cooling down their cars in the summer. I never would have even thought of that…

    I would like this because I won’t have to trudge through the snow when it is 0, push enough snow off it to gain access to the door, start it, turn on the defroster, then go back inside and finish getting ready while, hopefully, everything melts.

    This is a real pain when you are going to drive the mile or so to the store.

    I would love to skip the step where I go outside to start the car….

  6. Sue E says

    I would love to win this for my husband’s truck. Today it’s 104deg, his truck sits in the sun and is like an oven inside! Thanks for the chance!

  7. Ann F says

    My husband has been asking for a remote starter for his truck since it sits outside and he would like to warm it up on the cold winter mornings.

  8. RonaleeDuncan@aol.com says

    I would love to win this so that I can give it to my guy. He is always complaining that I don’t win him anything


  9. says

    Oh how I would love to win this. I live in Northern Maine and I commute an hour and a half one way to work so I get up at 4am in order to make it to work on time and during the winter months that early in the morning it is freezing outside, with well below zero temps. It’s so cold you can’t just start your car and leave because the engine is frozen and the windshield has frost 1/8 inch thick on it. With my hair still wet I run outside start the car and while the car is warming up I finish getting ready for work. This is definitely no fun~! My hair freezes in the time I walk to my car start it and walk back into my home. Thanks so much for sharing this review and giveaway with all of us :)

  10. Jill A. Collins says

    I would love to have this for the Winter time so that when it is cold out, I can start the car to warm the car up from inside the building without having to go out in the cold twice!
