In order to provide premium features such as remote start confirmation and security alerts, ArticStart systems draw small amounts of power from the vehicle's battery throughout the day. Modern vehicles charge batteries when the vehicle is driven and the power used by the ArticStart system is quickly restored.
If the vehicle is not used for an extended period, the battery may deplete and become inoperable. For this reason, we recommended starting the vehicle weekly.
If you feel that the power draw on your vehicle is of concern, we recommend contacting your authorized ArticStart dealer for assistance. A certified technician may confirm that the unit is functioning properly and, if necessary, a backup battery for the ArticStart system may be installed.
