I have a remote start system. It's not working right now... not sure if it's too cold or is broken? I just put a new battery in the keychain starter there is now a green light on it that stays on... this didn't happen before. But it wont' start the car. I bought the car used so i dont' have a manual for it.I was just gonna take it to get looked at but i'm worried this will cost a lot. Any suggestions?

If you have a remote start installed on your vehicle and it will not start, instead it would rather honk at you or flash the lights at you, don't get mad at it. Instead be patient, count how many times it honks or flashes at you because these actually mean something . It is communicating with you, trying to tell you its problems. In every user manual for every remote start I have ever installed (well over 1000) there is a section that tells you what is going on when this is happening. It will tell you for example on a Ford Bronze remote start that 6 honks means it is in valet mode.Look in the manual and it will tell you how to put it in valet mode and also how to take it out of valet mode.
Trust me, I have seen way too many people make an unnecessary trip to our dealership all because they never even pulled out the user manual that I put in their glove box after installing their remote start.
was it a professional or shade tree install? the following is off vipers website: disarming without a remote control This feature allows you to disarm the security system without the Remote Control should it be lost, damaged, or disabled. In order to disarm the system without a remote remote control, you must have the vehicle’s ignition key and know where the Valet button is located. Be sure to check with the installer for the location and the number of presses of the Valet button required to disarm the system. To disarm the security system, turn the ignition to the ON position. Press the Valet button the preset number of times (one to five times) within 15 seconds. After five seconds the system will disarm. If the system does not disarm, you may have waited too long; turn the ignition off and on and try again. if that doesn't work try this other
valet mode You can prevent your security system from automatically arming and triggering by using Valet Mode. This is very useful when washing the vehicle or having it serviced. In Valet Mode, the security system will not arm, even with the Remote Control, but all convenience functions (door locks, trunk release, etc.) will continue to work normally. To enter or exit Valet Mode: 1. Turn the ignition on. 2. Turn the ignition off. 3. Press and release the Valet button within 10 seconds. The status LED will light solidly if you are entering Valet Mode, and it will go out if you are exiting Valet Mode.
the starter is in valet mode. your led on your attenna is probably on all the time right??? turn the key on and off 5 times or check your manual to see how to get the starter off of valet mode. read your manual
