Default Re: installing a Remote Start/Alarm in a 1995 SL2?

Scare tactics aside, your '95 manual is about as simple as it can get since it doesn't have any alarm/theft deterrent system that disables any part of the EFI system to prevent starting and driving away. The lack of GM's Passlock or Passkey (rfid) makes it somewhat easier for installation. The only complication is the difference in safety relative to autos or manuals. Manuals require an extra measure of safety to ensure the xmission isn't left in gear or falls into any gear when remote starting. It doesn't take too much imagination to see what would occur if the parking brake doesn't work to hold the car in place while in gear if remote starting occurs (worse case scenario). Safety wiring in any kit should ensure the remote will never start the engine if one or both do not meet the requirements.

In theory, the parking brake is engaged (previously checked to stop a car from moving) and xmission in neutral before the remote start circuit allows starting. If you do not have wiring diagrams to help with installation then it may be wiser to find a shop capable of these installs and pay the price. Good shops familiar with remote starts, alarm and radio systems would have expertise in electronics and wiring to make most installations easier than anyone not familiar with car wiring, EFI systems and safety requirements to ensure remote starting never occurs in gear. The phrase "Do it right or don't do it at all" applies here.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
