People will often tell us that they wish they owned an automatic transmission vehicle so they could get a remote start installed. You should see the look on their face when we tell them they can safely remote car start on their manual transmission vehicle. Follow along as we explain how we can do this safely and securely.
Manual Transmission Remote Car Starters Installed Safely
It all starts with a simple but important sequence when pulling into your parking spot. You will start by putting your foot on the brake. Now, while your foot is on the brake, you will engage the emergency brake. Then you take your foot off the brake pedal,and you wait three to four seconds before you turn off the ignition. When you turn off the ignition you will notice that the vehicle stays running. Now you gather up all your stuff and exit the vehicle. After the last door is closed the remote start will shut off the engine and lock the doors. This is called reservation mode. At this point, the starter knows the vehicle had to be in neutral as the engine was running when you got out. As long as no one opens any of the doors the remote starter will start your car the next time you try to activate it. You will get in and be toasty warm!
At Extreme Audio, We Believe In Being Safe
As an added safeguard, we install what is called a digital motion sensor that can pick up on the vehicle moving as little as a few inches. So when you ask the vehicle to remote start, if the sensor detects the vehicle moving just that little amount, it will kill the remote start sequence. This is tremendously important to the safety of the vehicle and everyone around it.
