Will Adding After-Market Equipment Void my Warranty?


We sometimes get this question when a customer is buying after-market equipment. After-market means any equipment not provided by your car’s manufacturer. This can include car audio, remote starters and other kinds of auto electronics like lighting and added security equipment.

The short answer is no. In fact, it is against the law for a dealer to deny warranty coverage simply because you had someone else install equipment on your car. The Magnuson-Moss Warranty – Federal Trade Commission Improvement Act protects consumers from being wrongfully denied warranty coverage by new car dealers. The law is enforced by the Federal Trade Commission and is as powerful today as it was when it was enacted.

Car Tunes Etc. provides you a lifetime warranty on all parts and labor. And all the connections we make to your vehicle are soldered and carefully insulated. When we do your installation, none of your factory wiring is compromised.
