I'm a little concerned about potential warranty issues with aftermarket remote start, though. And the Ford remote start won't work with the manual transmission!
The Ford remote start won't work on a manual because they don't want the liability of someone remote starting the car and it potentially rolling away/ hitting something or some one, especially if it was left in gear with the hand brake off, it could potentially lurch forward or backwards before potentially stalling.

They make aftermarket starters for manuals, but you have to have the neutral safety switch and hand brake sensor wired up, as well as going through a complex procedure on shut down to make sure it's safe to remote start or they won't work, that is unless you go down the path of bypassing the safety features and creating further headaches down the line.

TehMark Well I have mine installed but am having the same problem with it not turning off when i hold it again. Must be an option to configure.

Did you just use a lighter to strip those wires inline? I'm trying to find the best way to do it. I'm a noob so using a craft knife on my practice wires has led to me cutting a few strands. The lighter seems to save everything.

TehMark Hey just wanted to say thanks. I just ordered the box and cable from amazon and will be giving this a go once it arrives. Those videos (especially the wiring one) are going to be a lifesaver. Until I'd found this thread I was under the assumption that I would need another key fob to control the remote start. I really appreciate you taking the time to show us fools how to do this SaToX.

Honestly I'm not to sure.

I have put them in other cars but have not attempted it in a new focus as of yet. Maybe I will get bored one day and try it on mine. If I do I will let you know how to do it.
