Default automatic starter

Hey I was just wondering , with the winter season coming I wanted to put an automatic starter in , but dodge told me if I do not get it from chrysler I could void warranty

Is this true ?

I would research the "Warn Act". It is the law that governs warranty concerns with aftermarket parts. It is the responsibiliy of CHRYSLER to PROVE that an aftermarket component you installed caused another failure. So for example, they cant blame your radio for malfunctioning just because you installed an exhaust system. So, install your aftermarket starter, but if it causes your starter to go out, and chrysler can PROVE it, then you will be responsible for the damages. Highly unlikely, but possible.

I have had no issues out of my viper remote kit and since Mopar sells a remote kit you can safely install an aftermarket one without any issues. For example: Mopar sells a leveling kit, as a result you can install an aftermarket leveling kit and they really cant say anything since there is a Mopar version available. If anything it should protect the warranty since you're giving the motor ample time to warm up.

The major difference is that the dealer will cover the starter itself if it is a factory version whereas the manufacturer of the aftermarket remote would cover it.
