HI EVERYBODY!!

WELL I AM JUST WONDERING IF ANYBODY HAVE INSTALLED A REMOTE STARTER ON A MANUAL TC MODEL ? SINCE I AM INTERESTED TO GET ONE BECAUSE THAT IS SOOO CONVENIENCE TO HAVE IT ON WINTER DAYS !

i JUST WANTED TO KNOW IF YOU CAN AVOID USING THE CLUTCH SINCE YOU HAVE TO PRESS THE PEDAL BEFORE YOU START THE ENGINE , I AM SURE YOU CAN MAKE A SHORTCUT ON THAT SWITCH,AND THE OTHER THING IS WE HAVE THE IMMOBILIZER INSTALLED BY SCION .

iS THAT A PROBLEM WHEN YOU TRY TO START THE CAR WITH THE REMOTE ,BECAUSE THERE IS NO KEYS IN THE IGNITION!!!!
SO IF ANYBODY HAVE DONE IT ???????

THANKS

BE SAFE!!

next time don't yell =), newayZ theres a bunch of threads somewhere about remote start, the biggest thing about remote start is that yes it will work but if you leave your car in gear like a lot of ppl do, you might forget or something and ur car will go rolling bye bye , i 0n0 just use the search feature

johny boy, ease up with yelling and confrontation. Caps were considered yelling as far as netiquette goes from the dawn of times, so be considerate.

As far as remote start goes - both the clutch switch and our immobilizer can be bypassed by an experienced installer, but is it really worth it?

Just put it on neutral.
What if you park on the hill? And the parking brake slips? And your car rolls 500 yards before slamming into a busy intersection? Not good. I'd rather have to turn the key to start my car.

PROFESSIONAL INSTALLERS GENERALLY WILL NOT INSTALL A REMOTE START SYSTEM ON A CAR WITH A MANUAL TRANSMISSION BECAUSE PEOPLE LEAVE THE CAR IN GEAR, AND THEN IT TENDS TO ROLL DOWN A HILL AND KILL SOMEONE, WHICH CAN BE UNPLEASANT.

ok. different scenario - parking lot on a hill. Real life scenario - my buddy bought a brand new car, 2 days later parked at the mall, did not pull the parking brake all the way up - the car rolled 150 yards into a guardrail, smashed the bumper. Luckily nobody was in it's way.
