Compustar Reservation Mode | Manual Transmission Remote Start Sequence

If you own a Compustar remote starter (Viper & Autostart follow same procedure) and your vehicle is manual transmission, you MUST set reservation mode when leaving (parking) the vehicle, in order to remote start it safely. The sequence is as follows:


You must (when leaving the vehicle, with the engine running) do the following:


1. With vehicle running, put gear shift into neutral

2. Activate e-brake/parking brake

3. Take your foot OFF the foot brake

4. Listen for the click coming from under the dash

5. Once click is heard, remove key from ignition (engine continues to run without key)

6. Exit the vehicle, shut the door (shut ALL doors, make sure EVERYONE exits vehicle)

7. Vehicle engine shuts down automatically, doors lock automatically

8. Remote start the vehicle as many times was you want :) 


IF you re-enter or open any doors AFTER reservation mode has been set, you must re-do reservation mode sequence.
