    your insurance will not cover yoiu if you have a remote start on your car. It can be done. you have to cut the clutch safety cable so that the car will start.

    Nobody's heard them. They aren't in production yet. There is no prototype even available. But he should still consider them. They will rock. I promise.

    I seriously WOULDN'T recommend rem. start on a stick.
    Too many things could go wrong that wouldn't be covered by your insurance; but yes, it is possible.

    Possible = yes, hard to do = no, safe and intelligent = NO Don't do it my brother seen it done and the results that come from the one time you forget to leave your car out of gear.

    Re: Remote start+5 speed

    Yeah its dangerious, but its also very easy.

    I ALWAYS turbo time my car when I get out, so its never in gear when i start it. Even if I have the SLIGHTEST doubt I ddin't leave it in neutral/turbo time it I won't start it

    2 brands that WILL do it safely...
    1 : Compustar
    2 : AstroStart

    Perfectly safe. Have one on mine and it's impossible to start the car in gear!! Professionaly installed Compustar 2WSS. A dyi job sounds a little riskey though

    Clifford used to make one as well. I have also seen plans for a conventional remote start system with a series of reed switches to convert to a "safe" manual autostart. Dude didn't say anything about buying a new system, but rather use the codealarm he allready has. That's why I said don't

    Re: Remote start+5 speed

    Straight from every compustar owners manual ( I have 4 models in stock looked through them all ) in the safety precautions. And I quote

    3. For manual transmission vehicles
    If the CompuStar system is installed in a manual transmission vehicle, extra
    precautions are required because the CompuStar does not monitor the gear shifter



    So what makes it safe for manual transmissions ?? Just because the company says so ?? My shop will not install a remote start on a manual transmission equipped vehicle for liability reasons.

    Re: Remote start+5 speed

    Allrighty just checked out the astrostart, same thing . While they both say they are compatable with vehicles euipped with manual transmission. THe only safety feature either offers is the e-brake switch. Which is a common feature among other systems as well. He!! in dash monitors have the same thing so dumba$$es don't watch tv while they drive. Once again I am back to asking. What makes these any safer ????
