    Question Remote Start

    Alright so I browsed around before posting this and I didn't get the answer i was looking for so I'll ask..

    Basically I'm looking to get the Viper 590 Security/Remote Start installed on my car. Question is is it going to be possible due to the smart key & push button start... I went to an independant shop that stated that it's possible but they would have to look into the whole Smart Key/Push Start by using a bypass so it doesn't cause a problem.. so my concerns arose when I didn't get a definite answer..

    As well I've seen the accessories brochure for the 2011 Kia Optima & they have the remote start (ONLY) on the brochure now. So is it safe to say it can be done w/the security system as well??

    Well I actually know an auto tech at best buy.. he told me that it is possible to do although since there is no over ride for the smart key when you open the door the car is going to shut off.. :/.. kind of defeats the purpose. I kind of answered my own question here but if somehow/someway someone knows a way around that, that would be awesome.. cause i don't like the fact that it'll shut off on me when i open the door..

    A place here in Cheytown has a deal going on this month, $299 installed, for a Viper remote start. I asked how it works with smart key, and he said that it will stay running, until you put foot on brake, THEN you have to actually start the car. ALL other functions work as intended. I'm thinking of going with it, it doesnt seem that big of a deal to have to start the car, once your inside. If I do, Ill let you all know how it goes. He did say it would be **** close to an all day deal, as compared to 2 or 3 hours for a regular install.

    Oh wow old thread lol.. forgot I even created it.
    I went with the 5901 Viper system and used the FLCAN Bypass.. just as an FYI Hugh, there's a bypass called the Evo-All which will allow you start the car and will keep the car running when the door is opened. The FLCAN shuts the car off when the door is opened.. I wish I had known about the evo-all at the time of my install.
