Default Help needed on Remote Engine Start

can anyone recommend a good remote engine start. I have been looking at getting one for a while now. Its to go onto a 2005 VW Golf fsi

I came across these guys, i have sent an enquiry to them, but they look expensive. www.novoconcept.co.uk

I would appreciate if anyone can point me in the right direction.

thanks

Yup, can't put them on sticks... Otherwise I would have one in my stang. Btw, double posting won't get you any more responses... This forum is small enough that you can put a thread in any section and pretty much everyone will see it.

Probably because you need to have the clutch in to start a manual car, and if you could start it and it wasn't in neutral then it would probably crash.

You CAN put them in sticks, i know a few that do, but it's risky because you HAVE to put it in neutral. Otherwise...yeah...self explanatory.

I know a guy that put his Audi through the backside of his garage by doing that.

these guys at novoconcept are saying they have a gear stick module in it, which makes sure its not in gear when the engine starts. How much do these things normally cost? im guessing the istart system will be out of my price range!!

Yes you can put them on sticks, my son installs these for a living.

The park brake switch signals the remote starter modal that the park brake is on and assumes that it's safe to start. Of course it's also assuming that the park brake holds in case the car IS in gear.

My son has one on his WRX and never leaves it in gear, always uses the park brake. On one of the few occasions he lent his car out, it got parked in gear, with the park brake on. Next morning he went to warm it up and his remote said the engine didn't start. He tried again and the same thing. He went to check his car and it had run into a garbage can, dented the front fender!

I personally wouldn't recommend an install on a stick, for this very reason.

I stand corrected I know you can't get them on manual stangs. Least not from the factory.
