Remote Start

Well, we had a remote start system installed this week. It works really well. They had to use a bypass module, which is stuck somewhere under the dash. We didn't lose a key.

It's a Prestige system, apparently by Audiovox. It does use a separate remote, but that remote locks and unlocks the car, and starts it. The factory remote still works the same way it always did. The installer even thought we could leave one of the original keys in the console and just carry the new remote.

The only slightly annoying thing is that you can remote start the car, but then when you get inside, you have to tap the brake, killing the engine. Then you can restart the car with the turn knob on the dash like always.

Even the auto headlights work as they are supposed to!

You should be able to remote start, get in the truck, put the key in the ignition, turn the key to on, and then drive away. If you actually have to press the brake and then restart the truck to go, there is a problem with the wiring setup or the unit is faulty.

Yeah that's how all me other remote start system work, kinda pointless to have a remote start and have to start your engine again when you get in.

When you remote start you should keep the doors locked then use your fob to unlock when you are ready to get in then noone will drive off with it.

It's something to do with the Nissan Intelligent Key. You have to put your foot on the brake (killing the engine) to turn the knob -- not key -- from off to start. There's no way around that, according to the installer.

If you just hop in the car when it's not running, you can turn the knob to start without putting your foot on the brake. For instance, before, if I was strapping in the baby in the backseat, my wife could, from the front passenger seat, just reach over and start the car to get the air running. Now, though, you have to have your foot on the brake pedal to turn the knob from off to start if you used the remote start feature. I'm sure it's some sort of safety feature.

The installer did say, however, that if it was a push-button start, you wouldn't have to kill the engine before starting it again. I don't understand why Nissan didn't just go ahead and put the push-button feature in -- they've got the technology and it can't cost THAT much more.
