My friend's brother would never leave his car in gear and he said I was crazy for doing it. One day the parking brake cable on his Nissan snapped and the car rolled down a hill and hit a Benz. Yeah, not so crazy anymore huh?

That's what happens when you drive a Nissan.....

Remote start is for "drivers" with automatic transmissions. I use the term "driver" loosely, since anyone can drive a go-cart.

I have had a remote start on every manual transmission car I have ever owned. It is just a habit to leave the vehicle in neutral every time I get out. Can't live without it!!

I was staying in some small town motel for work once. About 6am some dude's autostart drives his F150 thru his room's wall.

Okay so it didn't actually go thru the wall but it jumped the 6" curb and hit the wall, knocking the air conditioner out and wrecking a bunch of the brickwork outside and drywall and trim inside.

WOW. just make sure that doesnt happen. I have a viper on a manual, only use it in the winter when its cold as shit out.... dont see a need for it any other time. let it warm up for a few minutes, then its ready to go by time im out the door.

installer didn't connect passenger's door trigger on your truck to alarm door trigger input thats why it can't detect.. someone didn't complete his job.
