Remote car starter

I was looking for a remote car starter for my 05 ranger. now my ranger has no options at all so i dont need one to lock my doors and that stuff. and i can only use it at work because i have a stick and my driveway at home is too steep to leave it out of gear so i was looking for one pretty cheap. any one know where to get one?

It is my understanding remote starts DON'T work on standard transmissions in general BUT I think there is an EMERGENCY BRAKE OPTION to get a remote starter to work for a manual tranny. It looks like a real pain in the *** though,at least with this write up.

any creditable shop wont install one on your truck, manuals have to be left in nutreal or else it will move once started and bad things will result

I just bought my g/f one for xmas on her manual. Guy was able to install it, only thing is she sets her e-brake twice before she shuts off the car.

Call around.

Don't forget about the PATS system. Actually I think 05 was the year they left it out.

PATS is a passive anti theft system. Your key has a chip that the computer has to see in order for it to let the engine start. I think 05 was the year they left it out though.

I bought two identical remote starts from walmart just over two years ago, one for my truck and one for my wifes car,they cost $39.95 each and then looked up a MOBILE electronics person who installs stereo equipment for vehicles at your house,he charged me $75.00 each and was done in less then two hours.

My remote starts have worked flawlessly for over two years now and my wife and I use them faithfully summer and winter.

I did make one small modification to the foot long antenna hidden under the dash,I spliced into the antenna and ran a wire all the way up my door frame pillar right up to my sun visor all while hiding it under the plastic trim and just left a 1 inch piece exposed for reception by the visor, my reception is amazing now!!!!

I am not sure if walmart still carries them but here is a link

My factory keyless entry/ALARM still works fine and in conjunction with my remote start.
