REMOTE START ON PUSH BUTTON IGNITION-engine cuts when door opens
I have a 2012 RAV4 Limited with a keyless ignition. This works when I have the FOB on my person and I simply push the start switch to turn on the engine.
I recently had a remote start installed. Unfotunately now, after starting my engine via remote, the engine will cut off when I open the door.
I understand this is a security feature but it's annoying. I have never experienced this form of remote start; nor have any of my coworkers. No one has had a RAV4, however.
How can a remote start system on a 2012 maintain - and not disable?
HOW CAN I DISABLE THIS FEATURE AND KEEP THE ENGINE RUNNING AFTER I ENTER THE CAR? I would prefer to be able to also drive the car away and it not cut off with the brake pedal. If the exterior is locked but the car is running, and I have the FOB ON me at a distance, I don't see a security threat.
I've contacted the installer. I've contacted tech support at Directed Electronics (manufacturer of this particular system). It seems my only hope now might be an alternate system (made by a different manufacturer) or a particular bypass module. Can anyone recommend anything?
