    On the remote start for the Tundra when you hit unlock the truck stops running? Anyway to disable that so truck continues to run?

    Is this factory or aftermarket remote start?

    I know viper/Clifford shuts down if the brake is hit without the key in and turned to the on position. Not door unlock.

    Hmmm, that's odd.

    Do you have a different remote they have you? I was actually considering getting this soon...

    Maybe not now that I know this :anonymous:

    Good to know! What remote do they give you? Any pics? Or utilize factory remote?

    Cross that off the to do list. :rofl:

    Anyone have aftermarket?

    Its the same remote for all Tundras. You hit the lock button twice quickly and then press it again and hold it for a few seconds and it starts.
    Then as stated when you hit unlock to enter the truck the engine shuts down. Terrible design, don't know why it couldn't be like chevys remote start or most other after market remote start kits.

    Yeah was gonna say, my uncle has a 2016 GMC Yukon with factory remote start and it's the same as viper/Clifford.

    Must have been seatbelt Mike from the Tacoma design team who sat in on this one :rofl:

    i do like the no cutting t harness in this kit and the fact i can use my factory fob. also i would not need a bypass module with the evo one

    i understand that its just nice to have only factory remotes the only down side with the oem remotes is range its not very good as we all know lol
