Remote Start Failing

My remote start now is failing most of the time. I'll double tap, it beeps twice. I get in, the car isn't running, display says something like there was a failure or it was disabled. I also now have the engine light on also that I've noticed around the same time. Any reported issues of this? Can't find any.

If the engine light is on the remote start will not work. It will honk to tell you the FOB worked. Just wants a manual start for you to see important messages.


It will also not work if the hood is up. Check to see if the hood sensor plunger or whatever is not cracked or bent.


It also -might- not work if you have already ran it 2 or 3 times. Or it failed to start due to cold engine 2 or 3 times.


I'd try to have a dealer look at it.

Also won't start if fuel is low or a door is open.

Hi MoPacifica,

Per pages 28-29 of your Owner's Manual:

"All of the following conditions must be met before the engine will remote start:
Gear Selector in PARK
Doors closed
Hood closed
Liftgate closed
Hazard switch off
Brake switch inactive (brake pedal not pushed)
Battery at an acceptable charge level
PANIC button not pushed
System not disabled from previous remote start event
Vehicle alarm system indicator flashing
Ignition in STOP/OFF position
Fuel level meets minimum requirement

NOTE:
If an engine fault is present or fuel level is low, the vehicle will start and then shut down in 10 seconds"

We would recommend visiting your local dealership to have your CEL diagnosed. Please don't hesitate to send us a PM for further assistance if needed!

I've begun to have a problem with my remote start upon the first use of the car of the day. Instead of the car beeping twice and starting, it beeps only once and does not start. When I get up close to the car, after double clicking the remote start button again, I hear a whirring noise from under the hood. When I get in, the car starts normally when the start button on the dash is pushed. I could drive Just a few miles, park, and when I return to the car,the remote start works normally. It's doing this every day now.

Other than getting an appointment to have the dealer check your van, you might get the batteries checked at an auto parts or battery store. The owner's manual states that the battery must be at "an acceptable charge level" in addition to the other requirements listed. Please let us know what the fix is.

If you put your van info (year, trim, gas/hybrid, etc.) in the signature line of the UserCP, it will show up at the bottom of each post.

I thought I did that in my signature field. It's it because I did a quick reply that my sig didn't appear?
