    There are a ton of them on eBay. All remote staters are universal so they will work with all cars. I'd suggest getting the 2-way type as you get a verification when your car has stated, in case it's not in your sight.

    yeah, ebay has stuff but then you have problems finding the harness to slap it in.
    Over here in J-Land we just buy the $90~$200 starter and pay another $40 for the harness. Install is dumb simple ... errr, beyond setting brake tap-tap procedure.

    Strapping the hardware down takes the longest if you are not into ripping out the dash for a cleaner install.

    Actually, just in the process of moving my old starter to my new (used) car. Harness was only $36.

    ugh, forgot to add.

    1.) immobilizer or not ...
    2.) normally can't / shouldn't install in a manual shift. If you do you have to get the optional ring that checks if you have left your car in gear or not.

    Imobilizer...

    I had a Mitsubishi some time a go and the manual stated that if immobilizer equipped remote start is not compatible...
    This works by detecting the keys transponder in the key hole or near it. I wonder if the car will start by somehow keeping the key near this places somehow so the computer will recognize like a legit start attempt.

    I did go to the effort to buy the immobilizer box for a Grand Cherokee I used to have. Problem was that you need to put a spare key in it so that the sensor can recognize it.

    At the local shop (I'm in Japan) they were selling immobilizer enabled starters. I'd be more than willing to ask but I'll need to know a bit more about the car to ask meaningful questions.

    This works fine on vehicles that use resistors in the keys, but keys with transponders, it will not. The cars security system is a little smarter than that. After you remote start the vehicle then put the 2nd key in the ignition, the sec sys. senses that there are 2 keys.......there shouldnt be. After you shut off the car, it will not restart until the sec system is reset.

    Hear hear!. I have a car with a standard transmission, and if it didn't have a neutral safety switch I would've never installed the remote start. Several times I've remote started the car, then walked outside to find it not running, only to find it is in gear. Thankfully it won't start in gear because of the switch. If your car is manual, ONLY do it if you have or install a sense switch.
