Many people think that you can only remote start a vehicle that has an automatic transmission. The reality is that Perfectionist Autosound & Security has been safely remote starting manual transmission vehicles for a long time. Now you’re thinking, “What happens if I leave my vehicle in gear?” That is a great question. We have designed several safeguards into our remote car starters to ensure your vehicle will never start if it is in gear.
Here Is How The Manual Transmission Remote Start Sequence Works
When you arrive at your destination, you simply pull into your parking spot. While the vehicle is still running, you engage the parking brake with your foot still on the brake pedal. All you have to do is wait 3 to 4 seconds before turning off the ignition. When you turn off the ignition, the vehicle will keep running because the remote starter has engaged. It knows to do this because of the sequence of pressing on the brake pedal while engaging the parking brake. You now exit the vehicle. When the last door closes, the vehicle will automatically lock the doors and shut off the engine. At this point, the vehicle will remote-start when you are ready, as it knows you got out of the vehicle while it was running, which meant the vehicle had to be in neutral. Pretty simple, huh?
Manual Transmission Remote Starter Safety Goes To Another Level
But let’s take your safety to the next level. When Perfectionist Auto Sound & Security installs a remote car starter on a manual transmission vehicle, we also use a special sensor known as a digital tilt & motion sensor. Here is what that sensor does for you: If you ask the vehicle to remote-start and, for some rare reason, it does, even though you didn’t go through the proper setup procedure, this sensor has your back. It will sense as little as 3 inches of movement, and instantly kill the ignition. There is no way your manual transmission vehicle is ever going to start in gear when you choose Perfectionist to install your remote starter.
