2006 Scion xB 58,900 mi,
I had an after market automatic starter installed in 2011 with a life time wareente. November of 2013 I blew up my module. They put in a whole new system. its happening again just three months later. Its getting so bad that sometimes my car tries to double start its self while its already running. then shuts off to battery mode. The place where i got the automatic starter installed told me this is the last time he will put it in.
