So before I purchased my N the other day I directly asked if it would have remote start with the Blue Link. The dealer told me "yes it does". I know now that this is incorrect and the Blue Link will not start the car however, the dealer has agreed to pay to have an aftermarket remote start installed on my N.
Does anyone know if there is a wiring harness available or do any of you have an after market remote start on your N? If so what brand/part number is it?

So they are bypassing the clutch depressed requirement? It's doable but I am surprised Hyundai would agree to assume that liability.

No, it's not possible. You cannot bypass the clutch operation. Your dealer is giving you a bunch of BS.

We are in the same boat my guy... they swear the blue link auto start works and of course it’s a free trial service in which I will not be using after it ends. I only use the app to double check the door locks.. would be nice to start it up and have the exhaust open but you do need to depress the clutch in order to start the engine as previously stated..

Here is my take with the limited knowledge I have of remote starters...don't take what I say as gospel.

I am a little surprised the dealer is offering to do this - to clarify, when you say 'pay', are they saying that they will perform the installation themselves or pay a different installer to do this? I know some of the aftermarket remote starters have several quasi-smart features, where you have to go through a specific sequence of steps when turning the car off to enable manual remote start mode (i.e., you will get out of the vehicle while it is still running, and then the engine turns off after you exit the vehicle), but I was under the impression that quite a few installers still hesitated to bypass the clutch interlock (or whatever it is called.)

I have a Viper 5706V in my auto car with a 7756V remote. It is exceptional. That said, my installer recommended this based on my auto Kia being a slightly older model with a traditional keyed start...I vaguely recall them advising a different product for some newer cars with push-button start and the newer type of keyless entry. One thing I have observed from reading reviews is that an incompetent installation can become a nightmare fast - so I spent a while selecting the best installer around.

While I do not have a remote starter in my N and I do not intend to get one, if I were to, there is one thing in particular that stands out a bit - our car has some sort of a feature where, upon turning the car off, the fans and (presumably) the pump will sometimes run - I assume this is functioning to allow progressive cool down of the turbocharger. As noted, with these manual remote starts, you go through a sequence where you exit the car and then the car shuts down upon you being outside of it in order to 'arm' it for remote start. I would want to be sure that the remote starter would not interfere with this cooling operation when going through this sequence. However, I do not have enough technical knowledge of either this cool down operation or remote starters to even begin determine if one may affect the other.

Having owned a manual transmission car that had remote start installed on it at one point I can recommend against this. One day, I parked my car in the garage and left it in 1st gear. My girlfriend at the time decided she was going to warm the car up before we left for some activity that evening. She pushed the button and the car surged forward, hit my workbench, knocked a bunch of power tools off the pegboard and onto the car putting many dents and scratches in the hood and cracking the windshield. Maybe you will take your car out of gear every time you park and use the handbrake...maybe...but what if you dont...there are girlfriends and boyfriends everywhere...do you really trust them?



Note: I did not have the remote start installed. The car came with an aftermarket unit when I bought it, and the installer had bypassed the switch that detected the clutch pedal being depressed. I am not sure that bypassing the switch would work on the Veloster, but it certainly did on a 2012 Golf R.

There are a great many remote start systems that work for manual transmission cars. There is a very serious amount of training that must be done to make sure that you the operator leave the car in neutral with the parking brake on before exiting the car, but it is like all things, a risk you have to take if that's what you want.

I hear that the clutch is electronic on the Veloster? So there is no hydraulic piston being operated by the pedal at all? Can we get some blueprints on this to verify? Anyway, if it's just a switch there are many simple ways to bypass it that can be exploited by an aftermarket remote start company.

Me personally, the minor convenience of a warm/cool car isn't worth the added complexity and care needed, nor the wear and tear on the engine and additional oil dilution possibilities down the road.

Keep in mind, dealer liability. Dealers are specifically responsible for keeping any safety or interlock systems in place and functioning within NHTSA parameters, without modification. Dealers aren't going to accept this kind of liability and neither will their insurance underwriters.

There was a guy on the veloster N owners club facebook group that got his dealer to install one and they thought they had it figured out and working properly but then a few days later it threw trouble codes for the LSD system and the dealer figured out it was being caused by the remote start install. No mention of why/how. They had to remove it to fix the codes with the LSD.


Edit: So what I mean is watch who does the install so they will stand behind any problems it might create.

I saw that on the FB group. I wish someone had figured it out last year. What brand and model remote start did you end up going with?
Honestly I have not missed my remote start yet with the N. Since I keep in in the heated garage at night I really only need it for times like after work. Then N warms up so quickly compared to my old 2017 Tucson that I think I'll be good without it.

There is no remote starter for the Veloster N in BlueLink or otherwise aftermarket. The clutch has to be depressed for the interlink to engage the starter. It can't be installed after the fact, as it's controlled by the ECU/BCM.

Sure you do!:rolleyes:
