    Yes, you can adapt a remote starter kit to a hybrid. Most hybrids come without it as it does defeat some of the purpose of a hybrid and the manufacturer doesn't want to look as its going in 2 directions at once. However, since the ignition process of a hybrid is the same as a conventional vehicle, an aftermarket remote starter will work perfectly. To see how it was done in a Toyota Highlander Hybrid, go to:

    As you can see, this conversion is not for someone that is not a good weekend mechanic. Check around to find someone that can do the work for you if you don't feel comfortable doing it yourself!
