Re: bypass smartlock ... hmmm
The reason the remote start will only work when the ignition is in the barrel, is because the smartlock era ignition barrels, have a laser setup inside, which scans the key in the barrel, and if correct will send the message to the smartlock module. Once the smartlock module gets the message from the barrel, itll send a message to the ECU, saying 'Enable', allowing ECU to send a message to the starter relay, etc.
If the ECU doesnt get this message, the car wont start, and thats smartlock.
And from what i know, you cant have remote start with Smartlock. So you need to disable smartlock, but its rather difficult, because the smartlock module has a multi-pulse wire to the ECU. A bloke named 9psi EB
