Remote car start for manual trans??

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
