remote start alarm system

Recommended Posts

hey guys,

i've had a 2 way car alarm for just over a year now, for those who don't know what i'm on about, its a system which allows the car to send info back to me, i.e. when my alarm goes off, when doors are open, etc etc... and a function on my system is remote engine start (when i hit a button i can start the engine), but i was told i couldn't install it because of the immobiliser so i just decided not to bother with that part. but what i want to know is, is it true? is it not possible to remote start it?

thanks guys

I recently had an alarm installed with pager capabilities and a 3 point imobiliser. When i asked about remote start and window lift they said it is possible but very difficult, they also told me remote start comprimises security and its not worth it. Maybe with a change of immobiliser it is possible.

so this bypass relay allows me to keep the working immobiliser without compromising security? because it doesn't seem worth it if it's going to make it less secure

with a neutral safety switch and hand brake switch... it will work fine....

I get cheaper insurance through RACQ using remote start.

our current immobiliser imao does not give that the type of security as described anyway.....

juz my 2 cents

Remote start is not legal in manual cars either.

Yup, I think the law is that you can't have a car running without anyone in it. That's why it's illegal. Therefore, turbo timers are illegal.

Yeah there must be an occupant in the car if it is running. I have been told by many alarm specialist that its comprimising safety by having one installed.

That's not really the problem...

The problem is insurance not paying out if you have an accident and they find out.

Also.. should you leave your car in gear and start the car remotely forgetting... well... would make you look like a bit of an idiot. :lol:

if ur car is stolen i think is the main issue with insurance .. they will see that it was stolen and that u had remote start and then shove a pineapple up ur a$$

as they mentioned a bypass relay to work with ur stock immoboliser will do the trick.. i've asked already .. cost another $250-300 to get it working with my viper.. but lots of ppl do not recommend it. Some ppl say it plays around with ur alternator.

haha its got nothing to do with laziness, because u still got to put the key in afterwards, otherwise the car dies. It's just a rice thing :P
