    Remote Starter installation

    @tbirdman: You are right. Once the engine is running, the remote is disabled. So the only way to open the runnning car would be either using the key or the door key pad, correct?

    Im serious about a cng conversion but can't find any kits

    Is there a reason, why you want to get CNG instead of LPG? To my knowledge there are only disadvantages from using CNG compared to LGP. For once, CNG needs to be stored under a pressure of approx. 200 bar compared to LPG with only 10 bar. Therefore, CNG needs much bigger and stronger tanks to...
