Remote Start

Well i decided its time to ask the genius's at Mustang Evo another question. I've been talkin to a few people and I was told you can't put a remote start system on a manual car. Is this true? And are there any of you guys that have one?

I have heard you can but it is not exactly legal? I am sure someone can explain better.

doesn't really answer your question, but let me tell you my remote start experiences.

1) it is cool, but more or less useless. You have to be so close to start the car that it's almost pointless.

2) You have to disable the PATS system, which in and of itself is not a big deal, but it does make it a lot easier to be stolen. As it is, your key cannot be duplicated (except by Ford w/ a PATS key) and crank the car.

It doesn't seem intelligent for this to be installed on a manual, but that is simply imho.

you can put it on there if you want but its a rather stupid idea... unless there is some major reason you need it... ive seen people screw up their cars and more from putting them on manuals.

Except in the south were are more likely to want to use the AC to cool down the car before we got in it.

SOUTH HAVEN, Ind. (AP) Police officers were skeptical when a woman whose car had struck a neighbor's home told them the car took off on its own after she must have accidentally hit some buttons on her key chain.

Christine Djordjevic said the officers became believers when they saw her remote starter activate, sending her car driving down the road. They chased it down and stopped it from hitting anything, she said.

Police reports confirmed the vehicle "was checked and it was learned that the vehicle will start and drive when the remote start is activated."

The crash on Monday caused several thousand dollars in damage to Djordjevic's car and neighbor Gregory Hajduk's house in the community about 10 miles southeast of Gary. Djordjevic said she must have left her stick-shift car in reverse.

Djordjevic said the remote starter previously caused her car to jump over a curb at a store while she was outside the car and her 11-year-old son was inside yelling, "Mom, where are we going?"

To prevent any further problems, Djordjevic said she was taking the remote starter device off her key chain.

"I don't even know how the stupid thing works," she said.
