I think remote modification would be the way to go. If there is a fuse I would think it would handle everything on the remote.


twice for the Challenger trunk unlock

Re: Disabling remote start

I can tell you from experience, that it takes a loonngg time to affect you. I have a raised ranch and accidentally left the car running in the garage once. It was about 4 hours later before I started to get a headache. Went to get some tylenol, and realized the car was still running. It took a long time in an average size home for enough CO to build up so I felt the effects. Suffice it to say, I bought CO detectors the next day. Since the remote start only runs the car for 15 min, I hope that is some comfort to you.

Yeah, that is some comfort one11sgt. We do have a couple CO detectors in the house as well. The garage is vented 5 or 6 places just above the stem wall, so it isn't completely sealed off.

Re: Disabling remote start

Easy, don't put your keys in your pocket, and hang them up/ set them down when you get home. Remote start is convenient and impressive for those who may not know a lot about cars.

Has anybody ever managed to successfully start the vehicle by nothing more than pure accident? I just don't see how that could happen. Even if CO levels in the garage got fairly high, opening the door would vent it all; you don't take one whiff and pass out dead; it does take some time for the gas buildup in your blood to cause any concern.

Personally, I'd set the "horn on remote start" to on so if you ever do manage to hit it in just the right way twice, you will hear an audible reminder to go shut it off. But I doubt that will ever happen.

It is a real danger. No you don't die from one sniff...also note that CO is odorless. The real danger is if you are SLEEPING and the CO level gradually builds up you may well die in your sleep before you wake up with a headache. The smaller you are (i.e. children) the sooner you will die...like a canary in a coal mine.

See: http://www.miamiherald.com/2010/12/2...n-5-teens.html

It is not something to dismiss lightly. A lot depends on how tight your house is...if your house is newer or older...newer homes are built very tight and the CO can accumulate to deadly levels fairly quickly.

There was another thread about this issue. Apparently a remotely started Jeep turns itself off after 15 minutes...so it should prevent death... Regardless, having hardwired CO detectors is a good thing to have...

Re: Disabling remote start

And another recent story...

Couple Rushed to Hospital After Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
Miami-Dade couple poisoned in home, rushed to hospital
By BRENT SOLOMON
Updated 7:35 AM EST, Tue, Oct 5, 2010
BUZZ UP!
3retweet
digg

A South Florida couple was rushed to a hospital for treatment early Monday after apparently suffering carbon monoxide poisoning.
The couple was found unconscious by Miami-Dade Fire Rescue members inside their northeast Miami-Dade home just before midnight.

The couple’s son arrived at the home on Northeast 191st St. only to find his parents lying on the floor unconscious. He immediately pulled them out of the house and called 911. HAZMAT crews showed up and discovered high levels of carbon monoxide inside. Authorities say the couple didn’t have a detector.

"One of the things you can do to prevent this is to have a carbon monoxide detector in the home. It will detect the presence of carbon monoxide," said Captain Eric Baum of Miami-Dade Fire Rescue. "Again it's a colorless odorless gas that can cause you to go unconscious before you can detect the presence of gas. Having a detector in your home like a smoke detector in your home can give you that initial notification that there is a problem."

The couple was initially taken to Aventura Hospital and then rushed to Mercy’s hyperbaric chamber.

Re: Disabling remote start

After thinking about this more, I did some online searched. Ultimately, no matter what we say or do, there is still a chance something could go wrong. So, what do you do about Carbon Monoxide build up? How about a way to automatically have your garage door open?!?

Re: Disabling remote start

this discussion is quite amusing to me.

in ANY HOME AT ANY GIVEN TIME there are a gabillion ways to die very easily.

most homes have inoperable smoke detectors. Its a fact.



36, 000 US peeps die from the flu. so lets just lock ourselves in the house and interract with no one?





this isnt the first vehicle witha remote start. if people were dying from this option the torte lawyers would have it gone by now.

if you are concerned,then under the hood id a pin that blocks the remote start if the hood is open. rip the wires out of it and connect them. remote start blocked. DONE!

anything but completely disabling it can fail!











i leave my keys in the car when they are in the garage. my garage i locked and alarmed like the rest of my house.

Re: Disabling remote start

i am sorry, but this is crazy. why in the world would you by a vehicle that you fear is going to kill you. how is it that people can not manage to keep from starting their jeep or popping their trunk. this is a personal problem. people should evaluate their ability to work with technology and remove those that they can not seem to manage. complaints like this is why now i am mandated to have sensors on my garage door and why my mower cuts off if i dont turn the blades off, and set the parking break. stop screwing with my rights. really not directed at you sir, it just irritates me

Re: Disabling remote start

Hey Rosewood. I guess I am a bit crazy...I'm originally from 'Bama (B'ham to be exact). LOL. Must be the California sun getting to me after all these years.

Reference my very first comment about not being the safety police here. I simply asked the question about how to disable it, I didn't call my GD congressman. You are free to bypass safety interlocks on your garage door and lawn mower, and no one will stop you from doing so. Go nuts...

Seriously though, my family still lives in McCalla and I love Alabama. Would live there but I'm hitched, with kids, and she's originally from here (Bay Area). Good to be able to travel back and visit though.

Re: Disabling remote start

robpp and Rosewood - Why post a reply if you aren't interested in the tread?

It is a real danger especially if you have small children (they like to push buttons on things). And yes, "in ANY HOME AT ANY GIVEN TIME there are a gabillion ways to die very easily." so does that mean we shouldn't address those dangers? Duh. And no, a most homes do not in fact have inoperable smoke detectors...don't know where you get your "facts" from. Smoke detectors have been a proven safety device that is very cost effective. People die from smoke inhalation in their sleep or wake up when the fire is too big....same with CO poisoning (mostly from failed or improperly used combustion heating sources). But then again maybe we should give toddlers plastic bags to play with and leave pool areas unattended...ahhh ignorance.
