auto start in manual diesel?

Hi - are there any auto start kits that will work with a manual tranny? Also, would it be reasonably possibly to install it myself?

Last question, I know they are typically designed (legally sold for) auto trannys only, would it be possible to somehow wire the safety device (the in park safety) to the parking / emergency brake so it wouldn't start without e-brake fully engaged?

yea i had a civic at one point that was stick shift and i put remote start on it. you have to bypass clutch saftey switch (if equiped) and wire the park netural wire from system to the park brake switch. and wire the brake pedal wire from system to the clutch switch.

Honestly. Why? I think I would rather be able to watch my gauges at startup more than have it warm or cold before I got in the thing.

like they said just bypass the clutch safety. but be careful, I remember a few years ago a guy was selling his lambo at barret jackson and was demonstrating the remote start to a potential bidder the day before it went on the block. It was in gear and nailed another car that was up for auction

alot of the auto starts are capable to work with standard veh. Some may require the purchase of a few extra items to make it work properly with the clutch and ebrake. Do it right and get the proper auto start and accessories. If you try to rig the clutch bypass without using the proper accessories you are taking your life and possibly someone elses life into your hands.
