Manual Remote Starts

Anyone have any experiences with installing an remote start on a manual?
I have seen some places that do it with sensors installed on the shifter and E-brake but if it works it'd be great.
Anyone?

Best advice i can tell you is don't forget to leave the car in neutral...it moves...

The ones I've seen have a sensor like I mentioned on the gear shifter so that it won't start if it is in gear.

I have a manual and personally would not install a remote start. It can be done but you must leave the car in neutral and if the parking brake fails the car is going to roll.

Doesn't everyone leave their car with the e-brake on?
I've personally never left my car in gear when I shut it off.

you should definatly leave your car in gear when you park it. if you don't and the parking brake fails then bye bye car.

Yes. Please leave ur car in gear when u park. If not, it eventually will roll and crash. If u park facing uphill, put it in first. If u park facing downhill put it in reverse.

If you park on flat land though you don't need to leave it in gear... There have been times when I park it at home and forget to even put the brake on, but it is on flat land.

I would never put a remote start in a manual car... again!

My '97 Dodge Avenger had a remote start. I paid about $500 for it. It had a bunch of other features.

I had a fairly good parking brake. It could hold the car from rolling down a pretty steep hill. So I would never leave the car in gear.

Well, my girlfriend used my car to run to the store while I was asleep and that morning when I was heading out to go to work, I hit the start button and just as I was locking my front door I got to watch my car shoot across the parking lot and hit a parked car and a wooden fence. My girlfriend left the car in gear with the brake off.

If you do decide to install a remote start on a manual car make sure to add a bypass so that it won't activate if the parking brake is not engaged. Or don't let anyone drive it.

Lol, I didn't report it. The damage wasn't too bad. The owner of the car I hit got an estimate for $600 to repair the damage. I repaired and re stained the fence for $40. My deductible was $1,000 and my car only got some minor scrapes on the bumper which mostly came off in the wash so it wasn't too bad.

I had a new viper alarm remote start in my sti and never had problems and I tested it with all different scenarios just incase and it worked perfectly. The nice thing is also with a lot of aftermarket ones if that the range is a lot better.
