Question about 2005 Buick LaCrosse

1 Answer

Remote car starter stopped working (factory installed). Message says it was disabled. I went through the menu and it is not disabled. I disabled it and then enabled it. Engine light is on, however, it was on shorty before this and mechanic said it was because of the coolant sensor.

Check your neutral safety switch in your transmission. If all your lights on your dash, radio, etc., all stay on and don't dim when you try cranking, it's almost certainly the neutral safety switch.

I have a romote starter in my 2006 Sonata...battery died had use jumper cables and then sarter stopped working. Is thea way to reset them ? It was not factory installed thank you


Sounds like a job for the company that installed the remote starter. As we all know there is only 1 company that makes remote car starters, but i do not remember what it is and you aint giving up the information. Try the installer of the remote.

Remote starter disabled not sure where to find switch or how to enable remote start


DID YOU TRY REPLACING THE BATTERY IN THE REMOTE?
IT MAY RESET SYSTEM.
WAS THE REMOTE STARTER FACTORY INSTALLED?OR WAS IT DONE AFTER MARKET?A FACTORY INSTALL SHOULD SHOW PLACEMENT OF SWITCH IN OWNERS MANUAL.(GLOVE-BOX OR ONLINE)
BUT IF I HAD TO GUESS TRY BOTTOM OF STEERING COLLUM,
ATTACHED TO THE WIRING HARNESS BEFORE THE WIRES TRAVEL UP THE COLLUM WOULD BE THE MOST LIKELY PLACE FOR A TAP INTO THE IGNITION CIRCUIT TO BE MADE POST FACTORY.

Your car probably has an aftermarker remote car starter module installed that you reset, by changing the battery. It has nothing to do with your actual car starter. You will need to shut down(valet) or uninstall that aftermarket remote car starter module to get it to stop trying to start your car with no keys in the ignition.

2007 cobalt remote starter opens doors but does not start car


Ok help me understand this. When you say "remote starter" are you refering to the Keyless Entry remote. Assuming your car is equipped with remote start from the factory, if you check engine light is on the remote start is disabled. Is your check engine light on? Do you have multiple Keyless Entry remotes? See if the other one works if you do? It is possible that perticular button on that remote is not working while others are working. You will need to replace it at a dealership.

Could be.
Yes, change the battery in the hand held unit first.

Next could be the control unit.
Next could be that there is something brocasting in the area that is near the same frequency.
Does this only happen at home? Or has it happened in other areas also?

Is this a factory unit? Or an aftermarket install?
