Default General forum question

I recently hired an installer to put in a Auto Command remote starter. Now I know this may not be the best unit but all other installers refused to work on a manual car. He worked on it for six hours and could not get it working with my WRX. Anyway I ended up paying for the unit only at his costs and figured I would finish it myself (when it warms up a bit). I am not ready to ask questions about it until I fully evaluate what was done already. Would this forum be the proper place to post these questions?

I highly recomend that you find or pickup the wiring diagrams...
the things that may need to be addressed are if you have the security system, & the clutch interupter swich...
there is a "neutral" switch, but I haven't had to locate the wiring for it...
with out the book or some printouts off the internet you're probibly NOT going to get too far.

Subaru parts.com is being finicky...
I'll post the part number for the book later & you can order it from your local dealer if needed...

Glwagon. Thanks. I have the impreza wiring book as well as some information from the auto command web site including information on how to bypass the clutch . (he may have already done this) He bypassed the security already. I just need two things. What does it take to get a remote starter going on a WRX manual transmission (general description) and then evaluate what has already been done. I am someone who always understands better when I first get the bigger picture. It is way to cold out there for me to evaluate right now. Once I get this information together I can ask more intelligent questions. For now I just wanted to make sure this would be the appropriate forum.

Here basicaly is what it takes to start any car...

continous power to key switch "on" wire (this powers the ecu & stuff)

momentary power to starter solenoid (this actualy causes the starter to work & is on ONLY as long as needed to start the car)

once the first 2 happen the car should be running...

the sceurity system must be bypassed & also the top clutch switch (there are 2 of them)
? some way to tell the remote start that the engine is running
? neutral gear switch
? e-brake system off

I haven't worked with any remote starters... so I cant realy tell you too much beyond this...

This stuff used to be talked about in the stereo forum...
do some searches & that may yeild some results...
this is as good as place as any...

as far as the clutch switch to test just put the car in neutral, dont push the clutch, & turn the key... it should start if bypassed properly.

There are several service manuals available for the WRX, the one you're probably looking for is the wiring one, it's pretty inexpensive. Subaru Parts usually has the individual manual for sale here but their site is messed up. subaruwrxparts.com is offering it individually, and there are probably others...
