Nice, I can't wait to see the install. One question though, Is the car a manual or auto? I have never used a remote start on a manual car.

im guessing its a manual as doing a remote start in an automatic is fairly straight forward....

The manual trans have neutral switches on them for cruise control purposes. I see no reason you couldn't tap into that.

Doing a 5 speed isn't hard. Use the neutral safety switch from the transmission to be your safety so it doesn't drive away and a relay activated by the start signal (isolated) to bypass the clutch safety.

Here is something you have not thought about...what are you going to do about the transponder in the key? Make sure you have the module or bypass it somehow, if not you will not get a sucessful start. Test to see if the transponder is present by cutting a regular key, remove all factory keys from the vicinity of the vehicle and attempt to start the car with the copy key without transponder.

the 06's are the same as the other MY imprezas. the NPS is green/white at the ECU. You need a relay to switch from + to - and tie it into the black/white neutral safety switch on the aftermarkeyt unit (assuming that you are going DEI). Its very straight forward, very simple, just like any other RS install, just with an additional relay.

nope, you dont need a relay to bypass the clutch. Just use the BLUE (status output (-)) trigger from the remote start with a diode straight to the clutch wire which is GREEN/YELLOW. No need for a relay.You also need a DEI 556UW for the immobilizer

So, I got the Compustar Remote Starter+Security installed yesterday and it's fantastic. audio1der did a great job! In some ways, there are too many options on this system, but I'm very pleased.

Not really... 2002 - 2004 impreza's, the NPS (Neutral Position Switch) throws ground when the vehicle is in gear. 2005+ impreza's, the NPS throws ground in neutral.

For the 2005+ impreza's you can do the following... if you want to detect the vehicle in neutral only... tap the vehicle's NPS wire to the NSS (Neutral Safety Sense) input off the DEI unit.

If you want to detect the vehicle in gear, wire the NPS wire to the brake input (you will need to diode isolate the NPS wire to the brake input to prevent voltage feedback to the vehicle's ECU and diode isolate the vehicle's brake wire to the brake input to prevent the brake lights from being turned on when the vehicle is in gear) off the DEI unit.

The 2nd option allows the DEI unit's NSS wire free to be wired up to the vehicle's parking brake.

Also... the NPS doesn't have enough current to trigger a 12 volt bosch type relay. a low voltage triggered relay will be needed if this option is so desired.

thanks!

Also, for all those looking to do this. 06 Imprezas Have Chips in the Keys. I had to lose a key for this install. So be forwarned.

Why exactly did you have to lose a key for it to work? For remote start you mean? (To tell the car its okay to start right?)

There is an imobilizer chip in the key, and without this chip the car WILL NOT start....therefore with the imobilizer module(little black box that houses the extra key+ some circuitry) that extra key "talks" with the ignition and starts.......its a security feature....
