I have a 2002 3.8 5 speed manual mustang I want to install a Excalibur AL-2050_EDPB with a Blade-AL64 bypass module! Now the wiring diagram came with the Eacalibur but not with the Bypass module! So I went there website a to look it up and they show me that two wires (Orange/Black-ECM RX, Gray/Red-ECM TX) go from the bypass to the ignition 1 & 2, but that's it! I do know that using a Bypass module eliminates most of the wires that comes with the Excalibur! Now the a wiring diagram for the Excalibur show's you where to put it's wires but not the blade bypass! Can someone please help me with this!!!

I have a remote starter on my 2013 GT with a 6 speed manual. it is made by AstroStart. You have to shut down the car in a proper sequence or it will not start the car. With your feet on the clutch and brake, take it out of gear and let out the clutch. While foot is still on the brake, set the emergency brake. Take feet off the pedals, turn "off" the car and remove the key. The car will continue to run. After one or both doors have ben opened and closed, the car will shut down. The start system now knows that the car was out of gear when the car doors were closed. It may seem complicated, but after a few times, it is automatic and you don't even think about it. It has a switch under the dash to disable the system (like when I have the car serviced). I also have a phone app (SmartStart) that I can unlock, open trunk, or start the car from anyplace in the United States where my phone (Verizon) has connection and the car has phone connection. The car is AT&T so that s**ks in some areas.

Getting a remote started in stalled on a manual is a pain in the ***. I called 6 or 7 different businesses asking for an install and only two offered me prices like $250-$300, the others flat out refused. This is because they believe that it's a liability on their part if you were to start in gear. I did a lot of research and this stuff is utterly annoying to try and understand, good luck.

I had a guy said he'd install mine if I bought him a case of beer but he flaked out on me.

I definitely agree that a remote start on a manual is very risky...
From a convenience stand point, it would be nice. However, I have had so many friends who destroyed their front ends and property from having this on their MT cars.

It's just a bad idea. Remote starts are for autos. Anything else is asking for trouble.

What a pain...it's fine up until you shut the car 'off' and it still runs until you open close one or both doors.

So if you can start the car without the key, can you drive it without the key?

The way I look at is that if you own a manual (more fun to drive) you give up certain perks of owning an auto, and vice versa.

Any auto start should shut down when the brake/clutch is depressed without a key in the ign. My factory system on the 08 auto works like a charm....but I doubt I would have ordered one or installed one on a car for my personal use.

It is not a pain at all. Like I said, after doing it a few times, it is no hassle at all. How many of you already have the clutch and brake pushed in when you shut down your car and set the emergency brake? After you exit the car it is just like any other remote system. The car will shut down if brake is depressed or the engine goes over 1000 RPM. No key in ignition, so no you cannot steer the car to drive it. I will shoot a GoPro video this weekend and show how it works.
