Viney266 gave you how the user activates the remote start. if a door is opened, truck, hood, ebrake looses continuity, or applied brakes will cause no start if it happens when it applies power to ACC. an other sensor can also be wired in to de activate the remote start.
^^^ True on the wires and lack of door pins...IF the car is new enough :)
Speed is only a matter of money; how fast do you want to go?
