I don't think it's true. Anytime one goes off, I always look for the source. If it's in a parking lot, I usually see somebody looking. But that's beside the point. The Ranger having a reputation for being easy to break into is part of the reason why I have one, but that's not the main point, either. I feel that having a starter kill, shock sensor and audible alarm is going to make it almost impossible to steal, and greatly reduce the risk of it being broken into. You feel that none of that matters and it's not worth it, and that's what I disagree with.

For me, a couple hundred bucks is a small price to pay to protect a truck I invested $15,000 in.

Yes, you REALLY NEED to leave it in neutral.. My buddy started his truck in Walmarts parking lot and when he went out it was on top of another cars hood. He forgot and left it in first gear with the P-brake off. The first time he ever forgot..

Ya has all that stuff.

If my wife were to get the same set up it has on the fob deal where you can program 2 cars so you only have to have 1 remote instead of 2

My Escort came with an alarm, so when I got the remote start for it, I had to have 2 remotes on my key chain.
Since the Ranger doesn't come with jack crap except PATS, using the alarm/remote start combo I just have the one remote.

I have heard but never really confirmed this with anyone. The newer remote starts for manual transmission vehicles. You are able to leave it in gear and as long as the e-brake is set it will start.

Hornet alarms are good. It is the exact same module as a Viper system.

Not gonna happen. . . there is no part of the alarm that can dis-engage the clutch. You can put them on Manuals, but it is at your own risk of not leaving it in gear, it can be bad unless you get a sensing model that will stop attempting to start if it senses it might be in gear.

Found this online seems like a lot of work just to have a remote start.

Quote:
This procedure is commonly called the "REMOTE START READY MODE". The routine to enable, or set, the remote starter is done when parking the vehicle. While the vehicle is still running, you set the emergency brake and place the vehicle in neutral. Then, while the vehicle is still running, you press a button on the remote which will cause the systems status LED to flash along with the parking lights. You then remove the keys from the ignition and will notice that the engine will stay running. Within 15 seconds, you exit the vehicle and after closing the door press a button on the remote that will shut the engine down. Your vehicle can now be remote started safely. If this procedure is not followed exactly everytime before you try to attempt to remote start your vehicle, the remote start feature of the system will not operate.

Hmm, if it works, seems like a good enough idea. Kind of like a safeguard against a scatterbrained day. Oddly I have alot of those. . .
PITA, but good idea NTL

You have to buy one that is made for a manual and they commonly use the above procedure. Its a PITA. I think if I were to do it, I would build some kind of contraption inside the shift boot that would act as a neutral safety switch.

My dad had a remote start on his Powerstroke. Just how much time passed between pressing the button and the truck actually starting varied, since it had to wait for the glow pugs to warm up....

I'm just saying you can get a starter for whatever. Auto, manual, diesel.
