    Remote starter for 2018 CX-5 that will not shut off the engine when you open a door?

    I just purchased a 2018 CX-5 Touring and currently looking to install a remote starter. After calling a handful of installers and reading this forum, there is no definitive answer as to what brand of remote starter that one can install in a 2018 CX-5 that will not shut off the engine when they open the door. Does such a remote starter exist? If so, what is the brand/model of the remote starter?

    Iíve got a 2016 with an aftermarket remote start (not Mazda start). Mine does the same thing. When I got it, I was told it was a Mazda safeguard and there was no way around it. Sorry.

    I have this unit with the drone mobile app. I can start the cx5 from anywhere there*s cell reception, I can start it and as I approach the cx5 and press the unlock on the key fob, it will stay started when I open the door. If the door is opened with just touching the black dot on the door it will turn off. If you press the door lock x3 the engine will start. Use the drone mobile app and I can tell you the inside temperature, if a door is open and more...
