Nah that won't work with remote start cause u have to blow Into the device to start the car and during your drives it will go off randomly to check on your alcohol level. basically u need to blow and start your car homie
And hopefully u don't have a monthly fee of to pay to rob more money out of u that is 100 bucks

im inclined to say it may work as the remote start feature bypasses the ignition by giving the VECU a direct command, no ? Im also pretty sure the lockouts are wired through your ignition thus completely seperate from the remote start feature ... don't see why it would work. just have to blow into the device before you toss in the key and turn ignition on.

wait and see I suppose, not like you're getting around the lockout.

wasn't the intent of that comment. merely meant you will have the interlock regardless of remote start working so might as well just wait and see :p

My 2 cents, I also made that mistake recently. I have a interlock on my vehicle and have found that the vehicle will start without the test first. The idea is that you can start the vehicle but have only 6 minutes to test before the system locks and shuts down the ignition. Hope this helps....

I just got it installed a few days ago, its not as bad as i thought itd be, i blow to start it and then about 5 mins later blow again for a retest and then it doesnt bother me anymore until i turn the car off and have to start it again. Surprisingly they did a very good job at installin it and didnt cut up my jeep at all. They did disengage the remote start tho, hopefuly in the future they will engage it again and itll be good as new. I only have to have it til september tho and i paid it off for 6 months so i only have one more month after that then im done. pretty expensive though
