Default WRX remote starter by Subaru - anyone installed?

Like the title says: Has anyone installed the Subaru version of the remote starter for the manual transmission? Any comments versus aftermarket units?

The salesperson told me the subaru remote starter does not work on 5Spd. I personally installed an aftermarket remote start. It works pretty good, I can start the car from a 20 floors high apartment.

I have the Subaru remote starter in my 5spd. Installed by the dealer when I bought it. Comes combined with a security system. Has worked fine so far, once you get used to it (have to leave the car in neutral with parking brake on, etc..)

Sad to say that salesperson needs to improve his knowledge before selling Subys !! It works fine!!

Peace out,

Few questions if you have the time:

I gather there must be a Neutral Safety switch. What will it do if you try to start it with the car in gear?

Also, how do you prevent unintended starts? and is there a signal that tells you the engine is running without you going out to see if you just accidentally started it?

Lastly, what did it set you back?

Thanks for any Response Trav70,
-Pete

I had the dealer install the combination remote starter and kill switch on my 5 speed as well...I think it was about 450.00....They gave me two remotes - one died within two weeks and the other seems fine so far.
Apparently the dealer installed ones are better...I would have to agree - I can start the car from quite a distance and through a lot of cement.... I would recommend it..there is nothing like setting up the seat warmers, etc...and then getting into a nice toasty car...

The remote starter and security system from Subaru has multiple sensors. One is somewhere on the transmission to ensure that it is in neutral before you start the arming sequence. If you leave the shifter in first gear when you park it won't allow you to start the engine remotely.

If you accidentally set it off by having the remote in your pocket or in a handbag, there's no way to know from the remote itself that your engine is running. However the engine will shut off after a default ( but configurable) time span of 15 minutes.

Stay away from any Subaru remote starter system.
I have had nothing but problems with the products and they change from year to year which should tell you something too.
You are better off with a Crappy Tire system aka Prostart.

Have you installed a ProStart? I'm trying to install one in a '99 Impreza Brighton. I can get my lights to blink using the lock/unlock buttons, but the remote start part won't respond.

I have an Autostart unit. Never had any problems with it. Price was fairly reasonable I thought.

I have a 2002 wrx 5 speed, i paid 500 for the subaru starter and upgraded alarm.

The alarm has no shock sensor, or glass break sensor. If you want, I will sell it to you for $150.00

I now have a Autopage 850lcd two way starter/alarm. it has everything you need, and it tells you if somebody is breaking in.

bottom line is, buy aftermarket, if you want to have a better alarm, and longer range.

well, don't be jealous, but my best friend owns a performance store, so I get stuff for wholesale, and he installed it for free. he is a professional certified installer, and it took him 6 hours.

I paid $250.00 for the system. and it is well worth the money (even at retail)

It will be hard to find an installer to put a starter into a manual vehicle (offer to sign a paper so he will not be liable for any incidents caused by him installing a starter in a manual vehicle)

The system works great, it has stopped 2 attempts this month, and the police caught the little freaks trying to break in.

(my car might be gone if i still had the factory alarm)

it has no neutral safety switch, but it has an emergency brake sensor.

I am not sure what would happen if left in gear, because i NEVER leave it in gear.

alot of 5spd starters reqiure you to pull the e-break, push the unlock button, take the key out (car still runs), then push the lock button to shut off the car and then its all set. this way your car cant be in gear cause your not in your car and its still running. also if you going to get a starter/alarm system, spend the extra money and get a unit with a 2-way remote, trust me, theres nothing worse then going to get in you car and realizing that it didnt start. my girlfriend just got one and im going to get mine ripped out and get the same one put in my car when i get the cash. also something to know for perfomance guys, some starters have a few seconds of delay time to prime the fuel system before it cranks, my cliffard setup doesnt. this is now a big problem cause my link+ ecu takes about 2 seconds before it powers up the fuel pump so my car takes 2 trys to start in the summer (i can only emagine how bad its going to be now that its winter). oh and as for installing a starter yourself, i did mine in my van and it was a bitch to do, mostly cause the wires were all different colors then they were supposed to be and its just a really uncomfortable position to work in but it is doable with minor wiring knowleage. just expect to swear the whole way through it and bitch that you should have just paid someone a couple hundred bucks to do it instead (this is what i did)
