    I have a 2008 2.7L 5 speed. I was wondering if there was anyway to install a remote start that is ok for the clutch and everything. Anyone have experience with this? Thanks

    there is a way to do this, a shop told me in order for this to work you need to keep your car in neutral and the ebrake on it will have like a sensor or something. I always do that so it wouldnt be something new to me. Call up a shop and ask them they will give you more details but it can def be done

    You would have to keep it in neutral and have it wired into the "Clutch Start Cancel" button somehow. I'm sure if you call the shop that's gunna install they've done it before.

    Stay far away from the remote starter. Even if you never put your truck in gear when parked and only use the emergency brake, dont install the remote starter. The first time a relative of mine used his, he forgot he left his honda civic in reverse. He started his honda civic and it went into the snow bank on the other side of the road. The second incident was when he hit his garage door. Luckily this time he had the emergency brake on and it was in first gear. It lunged forward and stalled. He had it removed shortly thereafter. I wouldnt install one on a manual, unless the newer remote starter models have it so the vehicle wouldnt start if it was in gear. Just my opinion.

    I have a 2010 I4 4x4 manual......asked a guy at Advanced AP and he said its possible, but not "recommended". I do have the "Clutch Start Cancel", but I am not sure it works when vehicle is in neutral. (i'll check on that and get back to ya'll) I'm thinkin if the truck is left in CSC mode and in neutral (w/ e-brake) - that a remote start is not a terrible idea and safe.....especially when you're from the northeast! (I'm from Upstate NY and would have loved to have a remote start in ALL of my vehicles)

    you can do it no problem, just remember to keep it out of gear. there are some remote starters for manuals that require you to put the truck in neutral and pull the emergency break before you cut the truck off, then the brain will allow it to remote start when your ready, if you don't do the sequence when you hit the remote start button nothing will happen.

    I beleive viper makes one and it works off of your engine running, clutch switch and
    e-brake switch and door switch, you have so much time once you have the e-brake set and clutch is not engaged to shut it off and get out of your truck and close the door, if the door gets messed with or e-brake after it gets closed and times out it will not start ,. But if all conditions are true then it will start. Sounds pretty safe to me but remote start is something I don't need..
