At least that's the way I used to do it when I had to deal with snow. I'm a former Long Islander now living in Texas. Do I miss the snow ? Nope. I miss the romanticism of snow; the white fluffy coating falling gently making everything peaceful and pretty, not the reality; the ugly gray mess 2 days later, snotcicles hanging off my car, my floormats frozen with previously melted snow now re-frozen because I forgot to bang my boots clean before getting in my car that morning.

I'm a geek and I think ANY technology is cool, but to me, remote start is in the "yeah, cool, but why ?" category. The majority of use I see is when owners start their vehicle....when they're 10 feet away from it.
Thats what I do, out of all of our vehicles, non of them have a remote start. Unfortunately, in todays society, the simpler things are made for people, the better (lazier).

I'm referring to pre CANbus. Either wires get corroded, break or the remote start module craps out.

Thanks for the info, beerbill!
Seems rather painless, just time consuming of course. With my previous experience with electrical work and being a nerd about tech and customization, I'm sure this won't be too bad!

Having an SO who's an automotive graduate helps alot too! (I'm just very adamant to learn and do things myself. It's a fun pass time.)
When I finally bite the bullet and get all the stuff I need, I look to post about the process.

I could never, living in the City of Philadelphia, do such a thing with a car that won't lock while running.
Don't assume it's always laziness. It's intelligence sometimes too.
The new cars won't allow you to lock the doors while it's running and use a second key. Therefore for me. It's an open invitation for anyone to come take my car.

I really wish people would do the research first! The remote start sequence will not begin if anything is open or unlocked.

Yup! Any newer car I've messed with, there is a sequence and usually involves hitting the lock button at least once on the key fob before hitting the start button. Than use the key fob to get in. And the only way to get the vehicle to shift out of park is to either insert the key in the ignition and turn it to run, or have the key fob and hit the start button. All of this depends on make and model.
