The remote start won't keep the car from starting.

If you have a check engine light on currently, that will not allow the remote start to function at all.

    There's one thing you need to keep in mind when you take your car to an auto parts store for a free scan: Their job is to sell you parts. You say that they told you it needed a coolant sensor. If a code set for the sensor, that doesn't necessarily mean something is wrong with it. There's also wires, terminals, and connectors between the sensor and the computer that could be causing problems- problems that can only be repaired by diagnosing. Not throwing parts at the car. I would caution you to NOT throw parts at your car in attempt to fix it.

    You could easily spend more money in throwing parts at it than it would take for an experienced technician to diagnose the actual problem.

    That said, this post looks like it's 3 years old... What is the year/ make/ model and engine in your car? You say the car won't start. Does that mean it won't start with the remote, or when you stick the key in the ignition and turn it, nothing happens? If you can get any information on what code was set last time, and if there is a code set this time, that would also help.

Car will start but then shuts right off when using my remote start on my pontiac G6 GT, why is that?

Is this the factory remote starter? Or is it an aftermarket one? Has it worked before, or is this the first time you've tried it (new aftermarket)? More details would be beneficial to help make an educated guess on diagnosis.

I think that the module for the remote start is bad, possibly the connection to the starter circuit is bad.

I would take the vehicle to an auto electric service shop in your area that installs remote starters to diagnose and repair the problem.

you need to get your remote staring system manual and reprogram it, or go to the brand web site of your remote system and get a manual. the worst that could hapen is that you will have to take it to your nearest audio, car alarm shop and ask them to disconect it.
