Hey everyone....i just so happen to be a certified automotive electrical accessory tech and i work for futureshop which is the same as bestbuy, and all of you have valid points. It is the law to have neutral safety switches installed when doing starters on manual cars, it is actually illegal to do them on convertables and it is illegal to install automatic only units in manual cars. If by chance the car is remote started in gear the car could potentially bump start itself and drive a short distance, keep in mind most starters will attempt to start the car 3 times if it does not see the the cars engine is running, once again this depends on if the starter is installed properly with all safety measures not bypassed. I have personally seen and heard of cars driving off at gas stations and mall parking lots when people have attempted to remote start. Both the customer and installer could be held liable for any damage, injuries or death resulting from using the wrong unit or bypassing safety switches on remote starters. Yeah the process sucks for having to put most units in "ready mode" but realistically one push of the small start button can change your life forever.
