Question WK2 Factory Starter Information

Hi,

Are the start settings configurable?

When I start my GC my stereo will be playing if I left it on before I shut off the vehicle. Sometimes I'd be walking up to my car and I'd hear techno cranked on satellite radio.

My other vehicle would just start the car but the radio would be off until my keys were in the ignition and I turned the car to Run. Anyway around this? Or do I just have to shut the stereo off before I park?

I know there'll be times I forget in the dead of winter and when my GC starts the stereo will be cranked when I start it which may potentially damage my speakers because the speakers are cold and brittle; especially the sub.

Not sure if I understand correctly, but I think it works together with the memory option (seat, radio, mirrors).

I don't think you can change it so where your stereo doesn't come on with remote start (if you left it on before you got out). The best thing to do is before you get out, turn the volume down, and I'm not 100% sure on this, but I know on my friends Suzuki when you start it, the volume goes down to safe level (ex. you leave volume on 40, then start your car again and it's on vol 15). Haven't gotten my wk2 yet so hopefully someone else can further help your inquiry.

I know exactly what you are talking about, I'm pretty sure you'll have to just turn the volume down when you roll up to your house for the night.
