A generator remote start kit will eliminate the need to be physically at your generator unit in order to start it. Once the start button is pushed, it will send a signal to the remote start kit, which will allow the engine to start immediately. The remote start connector for the generator is usually located at the back of the control panel. Once you have located this, remove the plug from the connector. A remote will have a connector, such as a 6-prong connector. Insert this into the remote start unit. Take off the backing from the hook and loop strips on the back of the remote start unit.
