Re: Remote Start

Most shops wont put remote start on a man trans it is unsafe if you leave it in gear and start it the truck will take off.

Re: Remote Start

The shop here said they progam it so you have to do a seires of things when you shut the truck off to activate the remote start, (put in reverse, set park brake, put in nuetral, or somthing like that).

Re: Remote Start

Only thing you would have to bypass is the safety switch on the clutch pedal.
Just remember to leave it in neutral....dont need a 7500lb truck driving away by itself

Re: Remote Start

I don't think reverse will help much onm a powered truck...
nuetral helps if you have a good emergancy brake..

but technicaly I would imagine it only has a sensor that reads the
tranny is in park. so by passing it , and the clutch safty should do it...
then again , this will lead to warranty/sfty/insurance liability issues so no big shop will touch it......you may have to have a diy install.

Re: Remote Start

Its possible, there are systems specifically for manuals. The one I've read about most recently requires you to do something similar to: "arm" the remote start, take the key out of the ignition with the engine running and lock the doors. So basically its impossible to take the key out and lock the door with the truck running and in gear.
