true but i have an aftermarket pioneer, so even when its off, its doing things. (display crap). but if its only gonna be on for 10 minutes then i wont worry. i do have a pretty decent stereo. consists of a 1000w amp, 2 12 inch subs, pioneer 4 way 4x6s and rockford components, but i always turn it down to about 3 or 4 when i pull in my driveway.

My remote start is set up so that none of the accessories work except the heater fan when it'* working. I don't think it even let'* the alternator charge the battery (if that'* possible)

It is not necessary to "energize" the brown accessory wire during the remote start operation. Only the ignition (pink) and heater (orange). Your radio will not even know that the ignition is on and therefore will not stay on for 10 minutes after shutdown.

Yes, the heater will at least be powered provided the heater output of the remote start is connected to the orange wire. All you need to do is remember to leave the climate control on, defrost and medium to high fan typically, before shutting the car down.

That'* exactly how mine works. In the winter, I crank the heat/defrost when I get out of the car. Then I can fire it up 10-15 minutes before it'* time to go and the windshield is usually clear and it'* nice and toasty inside. BUT, i did notice that this seamed to drain the battery some. The charge gauge always reads lower after using remote start than it does when I jsut start it normally. Could be my UNGO starter, tho. It came with the car, so I ain't messing with it to try and fix it.

MOS, by your description I would think that you have a second ignition circiut that needs to be energized during remote start. I did check some reference material that stated that 98 Bonnies do not have a second ignition circiut though.

Over cranking maybe???

That description fits the operation of the BulldogSecurity RS-82i, which you can buy on-line for $39.90 from http://www.directwholesale.net . It monitors the Lock side of the car'* Keyless Entry system, and when it detects three Lock pulses in a row (within some short period of time like 7 seconds, I assume), it triggers its starting procedure. It comes with its own remote as well, but this feature allows you to skip the BulldogSecurity remote and use the car'* original one instead.

I'm sure more expensive models do this as well; I'm just pointing out that that feature is not unique to a $120 system.

also, will my radio stay on if i start it and dont get in it and the car turns off? cuase that would kill the battery pretty fast...
No, the remote starter is basically bypassing your ignition switch to turn on (or off) the same circuits as the key would. So if the remote starter times out after 10 minutes or whatever of inactivity and shuts the car down, it'* shut down completely.
