You guys... remote start is there for things like pre-heating the car before getting in on a really cold day or cooling it off on a hot day. If you could remote start your car and be on your way and a carjacker happened to be waiting for you to get in the car, he could easily run and steal the car right before your eyes if it left the engine running and the car on. The fact that when the door is opened or the brake depressed the engine then again dies is most likely a safety precaution to avoid that very scenario.
