I am installing the Viper alarm system in my car and was wondering if anyone had installed it in their Roadster (MK4, coyote). It would be nice if someone had some helpful links about the wiring configuration.
Read this earlier today, then this evening my buddy's nephew stops by with his manual trans Honda and he just had a remote start installed. My buddy and I went for a ride to see how it was running, we came back and parked it, in gear as most stick drivers do. 10 min later the kid presses his remote start while he is in the garage and there goes his Prelude down the block. Fortunately an idling Prelude only goes about 5 mph and the street was clear. My buddy ran after it and got it under control right away.
As said it will happen, the only way to start these cars is behind the wheel in neutral ebrake on. The way my car is tuned it goes up to almost 2k when cold started and then falls off. That would be about 20 mph right into something.
I saw an episode of "1000 Ways to Die" (don't know if I believe them or not, but entertaining), some guy just had one installed on his 4x4, forgot it was in-gear and it ran over him and killed him!
I have one on my DailyDriver Camaro (automatic), I have accidently started mine a couple times by just leaning on the button while it was in my pocket.
I use it to warm my car up in the Winter, what is the point for a fair-weather car?
I WOULD NOT install this on a manual transmission. Too risky to car, property, or someone nearby. Just not worth it. :icon19:
