You need aftermarket alarm system supporting manual tranny remote start. Compustar is the recommended brand.

You need to put your car into a reservation mode when you shut it down, so the remote start system knows it was not left in gear.

This happened to me years ago. When the first remote starts came out, I was driving a manaul trans vehicle. Of course I am in the market of these toys, so I had to install one. Well I did not derive a safety device right away because I figured that it would be easy enough to remember to not park the car and leave it in gear like I did for many years. Well the first night I had it the car drove through a fence at a local night stop. Numerous times in the first week until I came up with a switch device to ensure the car was in netrual I chased it through parking lots, remote started into the house at 5 in the morning, etc..... Getting a unit like the Compustar system with its dedicated reservation mode is the only way to go. These system are not idiot owner proof though!!!
