Only time we use the power on the datalink is installations that the EVO is actually starting the vehicle and that the remote starter will not be pulling too much current, basically, not connected to positive parking lights an not powering things like acc, ign, and start.


There is no list of which vehicles we do this.

Ohhhhhh, technically all remote starters will get powered through datalink. Ours do anyway.

I have seen some models (autostart) that you still need to connect one of the 2 power inputs (if it has 2). Some internal relays seemed to not be powered.

Best answer though will be from the actual remote start manufacturer. On a side note, they will all need an ignition input.
