Despite the name difference most those keyless entry remote transmitters do the same job. The details might be a bit different, remote programming instructions more or less involved but for the most part those remote all do the same - they help us lock, unlock the vehicle and in some cases remote start the engine. Remote starters used to be a luxury option on most high end cars. These days you can even get the remote started factory installed and programmed in small cars like Chevy Cobalt or Pontiac G6. The only problem with those remote starter remote controls is that remote programming must be performed by a dealer or a pro car locksmith using scanning tools and specialize remote programming equipment.
