Installing a remote starter in 2014 jetta. The brake must be pressed when starting the car. What would be the relay setup so remote starter activates brake wire but does not shut down the brake input wire to the rem starter.

Hi Mike,

Take a look at the Audi A3 installation guide. Brake is controlled through one of the EVO internal relays. 

EVO-ALL & Audi A3 (2015) - Revision 20140602

Is that a push button starter? If so I had a similar issue with a Nissan sentra, you should be able to find a wire that goes hot when pressed, you have to hookup a starter output wire to that line, so it sees the correct activation as when you start the vehicle. Hope that helps
