Isn't there a switch on the clutch that prohibits starting unless its pressed?

Also, when I build one on Ford.com it seems to indicate that remote start is only available on a DCT. What's the cost to add it later?
LOL, that's what I said... We will see, If I don't get it, I'm not really out anything. It was supposed to be part of my purchasing deal, so If it can't be installed, I'll see if I can bargain for something else.

From what I have read online is that there is a certain procedure that can be done to use remote start on a MT. Something like while the engine is running, put in neutral, set e-brake, press remote start button, take key out (engine should stay running), then get out of car, shut door, and press remote start button again, and car will turn off. Remote start is supposed to work after that UNLESS someone opens the car door.

Like I said, I'm not sure if it will work, nor do I really care, it is an extra.
