Honda Civics EX ”97s that the keyless entry….

Question:

I just recently purchased a Honda Civic EX Sedan 1997 car… It came with a stereo/radio that doesn”t have either a CD player or Tape player either. So I was thinking of purchasing this new radio from circuit city. It says once I put in my car information that it fits. However, I read in another article that in the stereo/radio of the Honda Civics EX ”97s that the key-less entry for my unlock/lock/panic key button chain is located within the stereo/radio and if I were to replace it with a new stereo system, I wouldn”t be able to use my key-less entry no more. Is this true, and if so, what can I do to fix this problem, as I really want a new stereo? 

Answer:

 Yes, the stock radio has your key-less entry in the radio. However, you can purchase a wire harness from Circuit City that allows you to leave the factory radio powered up and still install an aftermarket radio. You just leave the factory radio in the dash behind the aftermarket one and your key-less entry still works.

remote starter – poor range

Question:
Has anyone found a way too improve the poor range and some of the other undesirable shortcomings of the factory installed remote starter on the T Tundra?

Answer:
You might try adding to the gray antenna wire and extending it. Not all models have this antenna wire though.

A Toyota Technician has proven that holding the remote up to your chin and pressing the button actually proved to add about 20 feet to the range of a remote.
