It is possible, but its a major pain in the butt... A lot of shops won't do it, and the ones that will charge a lot of money. The ones that do it correctly, put a sensor that will only let it work when the parking break is set, and the transmission is in neutral.

I dont think its a good idea. If you leave the car in gear by mistake the car could take off while you eat your cheerios.

Its more money because there is more work. There has to be a sensor on the e-brake.. It is safe if done correctly

Usually it goes like this
1. car running
2.in nuetral
3. set e-brake
4. get out and lock car
5. shut off car with remote start remote

THEN the car will restart with the remote AS LONG AS you don't open a car door. That is the ONLY way you can be sure the car is still in nuetral otherwise the car could start in gear.

Seen a civic go into a dumpster that way once LOL

there is no added sensor for the ebrake they just tap into the the factory one. installing a remote start on a MTX vs ATX is usually just 2 wires. one goes to the clutch other to the ebrake. ATX these are just grounded or not used depending on the remote starter.

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 :)

i was more placing this towards the focus not a car from the 80's. yes if the car doesn't the sensors they will need to be added, but in the case of the focus there would be no extra sensors. installing a remote starter in the focus is actually pretty simple as all but i think about 8-10 connections are at the GEM.

this site is also very useful if your planning on doing it yourself.
