Question about Cars & Trucks
Put new starter on car and new wiring harness and fuses
The starter has two main wires, one from the battery and one from the key switch. If the wire from the key switch is not on the correct post you can have the problem you describe.
You could also have a short in the key switch. A mechanic would disconnect that wire and check it for voltage with the switch on and off.
Its also possible you have a faulty starter if the problem was not happening before you replaced it.

SOURCE: H2 Hummer
Today 11-12-08 my 2003 H2 Hummer would not start. Checked battery it ischarged. Cables tight. Tried to start with portable booster pak. No go. Tridto jump start with my wife's Suburban. Still no go.
When I turn the switch I hear a single click and that is it. No engine turning over. While trying to start with key the headlights go out. Out of ideas, Will take to Chevy garage in am. Will post solution.

The mechanic should check on the wires and fuse going to the starter motor and the spare parts . since when you test the starter motor and seems no problem to it ,it means that the problem is in the other spare parts connected to the starter motor .check the alternator if it is good and functioning well. The solenoid you also have to check it to be sure because it is very much connected to the starter motor .those spare parts that are worn out or destroyed , you should replace them .

your cars antitheft system is trying to prevent the car from being stolen so it is shutting it offf after it starts. go back over step by step you installation instructions make sure the ring around the ignition that comes with the remote starter is taped into the exact loacation it needs to be, or the cars own anti theft system will not notice it and will try to shut car off. its an anti theft feature. if this doesn't wotk you will not be able to use this remote starter. i ran into the same problem finally got it to work poperly.
