Remote car start for manual trans??

7 posts in this topic

With the cold weather starting again I made a comment that I would really love to have one of those remote starters for the cold mornings but I drive a stick shift so out of luck. and a guy said they make then to use with a manual you just have to keep it out of gear when parked. I'm guessing he's full of it since I have to have the clutch depressed to get the car to start. Anybody ever heard of this kind of deal? If it was out there I think I would have heard of it by now. before you guys in the know respond please give me a few minutes to day- dream about it being true crazy

You can install them, but yes you would have to remember to leave it in nuetral. If you forget it will start and take off down the road on its own. I would highly recomend not installing them on manual trannies. It can be done, but most places wont even install them, just to cover their own buts.

eyes, thanks yea I did google it..thats one of the things though I love about this site is I can get "real world" type of answers from guys like me that might have been down that road allready. I am thinking I better not do it.. I trust myself but as soon as I read the description of leaving it in gear and lurching I had the cartoon bubble in my head of my teenage son hitting the button and car going into the back of my wifes or worse in-laws car in the driveway....

Galaxy 2000rs-2w-1-m Remote Starters [manual Transmission With One 2-way Lcd.

Galaxy makes one.

I think it has a neutral safety switch tie in or it monitors when the truck is in gear, so you do not start it when in gear.

Ziebart might intall them and if you check around the web, the prices are all over the page. Around $100.00 for the unit uninstalled.

I put one in my truck about 7 years ago that I got on [YouNeedAuthorization], when you set the park brake and tap the foot brake you turn the key off and the truck stays running, when you get out and shut the door it shuts itself off so it knows its not in gear, if the doors are opend it will not start with the remote so it cant start in gear. The only thing is I had to disasemble the clutch saftey switch so it will start in gear without the clutch in manually, and I had to put it in myself because I could not find a machanic that would do it.

    • Awesome pictures!!!
    •   StephenRamon, Welcome to the forum. Which did you think was Great? Putting the screws in boots or ATV tires? 
    • I was fortunate to see a tanager, blue-winged warbler, and a couple of young cranes all in one morning  on a walk in a park this week.       
    •   You will get plenty of recipes for a brine or injection, or even an injectable brine which work good for turkey breasts.  A common injection are the store bought ones you see in sporting goods stores in the cooking section. All kinds of flavors from Cajun, to Honey Butter, Garlic & Herbs, etc. Some even come with a free syringe.  Some simple injections you can make are apple juice (plain or jazzed up), beer with seasonings, a doctored up chicken broth and one of my favorites a Lite Apple Brine.  Since it's injected I like lower salt than you would use for an immersion brine.  My Lite Apple Brine's ratio is 1 gram of canning salt mixed into 1 ounce of apple juice.  If you buy an 8oz bottle of apple juice, just add 8 grams of canning salt, shake it and you are ready to inject.     Years ago I asked Old Dave, an online friend, for help on an injection for a pastramied turkey breast recipe I was developing.  He sent me a modified version of Shakes Injectable Brine, which is fancier than my Lite Apple Brine.... and guess what, I really like it too.  Here is the recipe... and if you want to read more, I'll have the link to my write-up below.  BTW, I was skeptical of the cloves, but I tried the first one following the recipe and it's good.  My only variation is I'll use agave nectar instead of the honey sometimes.    Old Dave's Poultry Injectable Brine, based off of "Shakes" Injectable Brine. 
      32oz clean water (non-chlorinated and not softened)
      1/4 cup pickling salt
      2 teaspoons of TenderQuick
      1/3 cup clover honey
      3-4 bay leaves
      1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
      1/2 teaspoon pickle spice

      Heat it up in a sauce pan but do not boil. For a 12-15 pound turkey, inject 2 oz in each leg, 2 oz in each thigh, and 4 oz in each side of the breast. 16 oz total per turkey. I like to do the injection at least 8-10 hours before the fire.   My Pastramied Turkey Breast write-up can be found HERE   EDIT, you smoke them until the internal is 165° to 170°.  An injection will help keep them moist even at the 170° temp.  I like a mix of cherry and hickory, but keep the amount gentle.  Apple would be a safe bet for your first one and you can always use a stronger wood next time.  
    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
