Aftermarket Remote start requires factory key in ignition??

Help!

I'm about to install an aftermarket Clifford alarm. Or rather the shop is about to install it. The dude is telling me that with the remote start I'll have to leave a key in the ignition at all times; is this right???

What if I lock my keys in my car? Will I be able to just use the other factory key I have to get in?

That's why I love this forum. Thanks dude! You cleared it up for me; I called back and the dude was like 'No man...the key isn't in the ignition; it's hidden under the dash in the module."

Thanks!!!!!

Question key module

If you hide a key in the car aren't you disabling your stock security features.

Yes, you are correct. The main reason to go with the Chrysler remote start kit is cause of this very reason. By the time you purchase another key your after market system will have cost just as much as a Chrysler set up. But now no SENTRY Key Theft Detection. So the car can be stolen with a screw driver.

Go with mopars 2 way remote starter, you will not regret it.

It works flawlessly with our cars that you think it came like this of the assembly line.

And you can install it yourself. Just get some butterfly splice connectors to avoid soldering. And give it three hours from your time at most.

You will be more than happy with the results.

They do make a bypass that is programable so you don't have to leave a key in the car at all.

Not sure why most shops don't offer this?

I should've mentioned that I'm going with a Clifford Matrix 50.5...so it's remote start with an alarm. And I got the tilt sensors for my wheels. If there's a forced entry into the vehicle the alarm goes off and the car won't start (kill switch) It has a one mile range; so if someone messes with my ride I'll know. And they will suffer.
