Anyone in here install autostart in their V? I'm wondering how it will work with special key these cars have, like pressing the button on the door handle to unlock and the keyless start. Anybody that has info on it or just has it installed tell me. Thanks

I have a remote start in my versa. It works well. There is a thing called an Immobilizer Bypass Module. They go by different immbolizer numbers for different makes. For nissan the number is "XpressKit XK07". So you need a remote start system and an immbolizer bypass module. You have to take the module to a remote start professional, and they will download all the features that ur car has, into this module, so it will start like it should. I have a Versa S model with power package. So I have keyless entry, and tradtional key insert. But it works both ways. When I got mine programmed, the guy was asking me all kinds of questions, like, do I have push button start?, buttons on the outside?, etc. I got my module on ebay for $30. I hope this is what you meant by auto start.

Heres what the XK07 looks like.... http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_13990_XpressKit+XK07.html

Heres my youtube video of it starting..... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VlMP0tJPcKk

Yes it will. My Previous car was base with no power door locks and no keyless entry. I had a Viper remote start installed. It just meant I still had to use the key to unlock the door but at least my car was warm in the winter.

Any remote starter you will buy, and i mean any brand, will need a bypass module in order to bypass the transponder that's in your key. Some modules will do only the bypass and others will do the bypass and control the door locks, trunk, and a lot more stuff.
What you need is only the bypass module 'cause you have no power package in your car.
So any remote starter AND a bypass module.
Autostart remote starters are a bit easier to install than the Viper (I do have a Viper in my car).
THe XK07 has been discontinued for a while. Best bet would be to look at these website for the Bypass modules and remote starters.
Just have to enter make/model and year to find the right module.

If you've never done installations in car, i would suggest that you have the job done by a professionnal installer, not that it can't be done if you really take your time, but it has to be done the right way.

Future Shop or best buy will sell you the remote starter for around 150$ installed plus the bypass module for 90$ installed.

Yes I'm pretty sure you do because there is a chip in the key and the bypass module is needed to allow the car to start without your key in the ignition.

My previous car was a base model, but not a Versa; and it didn't have the chip in it's key. That's why I didn't need anything else in order to have the remote start installed.

I am not too sure in regards to each model trim.

I don't have intelligent key but I do have a chip in my key. So in order to start my car the keys from the dealer, that have the chip inside, need to be used. I can't go get a regular plain old key copied and use it.

They are all standard with the imbolizer, but only the SL's have a security system standard. And yes they have been wrong with me too, lol!

What is the security system on the SL's?
I forgot to include USA models, lol. All it does is when any door, hood, or trunk is forced open, the lights and horn are pulsed for 1 min. I also heard it disables the starter, but I do not know for sure.

Oh okay. I have this ... It only works if the car is locked, key is far away, and someone actually opens the door. I noticed i had this when I was working on my doors. I had locked the car with all windows down, then went back out to the car a while later, unlocked by sticking my hand thru the window, and once I opened the door the horn blared. It's not the greatest alarm though ... Means they have to physically force open the door before any noise occurs.
