I'm going to install install a Viper 5704 over thanksgiving using an iDatalink interface. Got everything I need, just wont have time to do it until then. Serving Overseas at the moment.
Installing on a manual can be done and I will be doing that on mine. It involves a process to ensure the car has the ebrake set and it's not in gear.
When you get ready to leave
1. Put in Netural
2. Set ebrake
3. Press and release brake pedal
4. Push button on remote start remote within 20 seconds
5. Turn off car and remove key, car stays running
6. Close the door
7. Arm the alarm, car will turn off
Now the car is armed and ready for a remote start command. If any of the above changes (i.e. doors opened), remote start wont work until this process has been done again.
