    Red face UGH... another remote start thread

    Sorry to start yet another thread about remote start installation. I'm looking at the Fortin kit for my 2014, which has a manual transmission. As always, I'd MUCH prefer OEM, but research hasn't turned up anything for manuals.

    Just to check once more before I pull the trigger on the EVO-ONE kit, does anybody know of a Mazda remote start system that will work with a manual-equipped car, or has anybody tricked/reworked the automatic-only kit to work with a manual?

    Viper makes kits that will work with a manual transmission. Mine is model 4806V. I have one in my 2014 Mazda 6 with MT and it was professionally installed

    I have this but for AT. Talk to Fortin folks, they will let you know for sure.

    By looking at the diagrams, it looks like it will work: http://fortin.ca/en/vehicles/mazda/c...-start_manual/

    Make sure you get the RIGHT wiring diagram.

    By looking at the MT install PDF: http://cdn02.fortin.ca/download/6826...ey_a_68261.pdf

    It looks like it differs only by 1 extra connection - clutch bypass A5.
    I believe, you can skip the parking lights as those are optional.

    Thanks, but my question was whether I could use an OEM remote start system instead of the Fortin unit. I'm sure that the Fortin EVO-ONE works with the manual, but I like to go OEM whenever possible.

    Anyway, it's a non-issue now. The EVO-ONE is sitting on top of my workbench and will likely be installed within the next 48 hours. I sprung for the optional T-harness, so we'll see what the install is like.
