Remote starter in valet mode Symptoms: Lock and Unlock buttons work as normal, but pressing Start does not produce any response from the vehicle.
Causes: Someone accidentally pressed the combination of buttons to put the car into valet mode, usually when the remote is in a purse or pocket. Also, many remote car starters will revert to valet mode when the vehicle is disconnected for service.
Hood Pin Has Broken or Failed Symptoms: Pressing Start results in several flashes of the parking lights but no start. If equipped, Lock and Unlock still function.
Cause: In most cases, the under-hood pin switch is broken or corroded.
Remote Control Loses Programming Symptoms: Pressing any button on the remote results in no response from vehicle.
Cause: It is rare, but does happen - in most cases, this is caused by a dead battery in the vehicle or the battery having been disconnected when being serviced.
Remote starters usually have some type of non-volatile memory to retain things like programming features and remote control codes. Like any "computer" device, sometimes they lose memory. When this happens, simply call the store that installed it for you. In some cases, they may be able to tell you how to reprogram it over the phone. Other times, you will have to return to the store for a technician to program it. In any case, this is rare with higher-end remote starters.
Remote is in Second-car Mode Symptoms: Pressing any button on the remote results in no response from vehicle.
Causes: A combination of buttons were accidentally pressed, which put the remote in second-car mode.
Again, this is very rare, but happens from time to time. Many remote car starter remote controls have the ability to start two vehicles. If the remote is accidentally placed into second-car mode, it will not start or operate vehicle #1.
Simply read your owner's manual or call your installer for directions on how to revert the remote back to car #1.

How do I use the command star on a polar key fob?

RTM? yet. sure it lost, not in the the glove box.

are you saying there are 2 problems.?
the truck button may be a feature that blocks the trunk for valet usage. read the operators guide yet.?
my guess is car not starting is more compelling an issue?

are you talking the engine remote start feature?
factory option.
if not factory option , then you need pick one of 2 paths.
1: put car back to stock and drive it.
2: or find who made this RS box. and get the full documentation on it , for sure the install instructions and schematic so a tech can fix it.

the remote start, is non trivial.
read the FSM and learn how it works.

it is very tricky , in that it must do something dangerous.
"run an unattended car."
so blocks starts for many reasons, even doors left ajar.
I'D scan it first. use a pCM OBD2 scan tool
got DTC errors, many can in fact shut down the factory feature.

My remote control is beeping every once in awhile but not starting the car! What could be the issue? Polar start car starter

The remote control's internal battery may be low and require replacement. Open the remote control and measure the electrical voltage of the battery using a multimeter. If this is not possible, visit your nearest Radio shack retail store and they will check the battery's voltage for you.

How do you re-program a polar start? Replaced my car battery< now I think I need to re-program my remote.

If you know where the main control module for the remote start is under drivers side kick panel. start the vehicle and unplug the main harness going into this module. turn off the vehicle and plug it back in it usually resets itself back to original settings and you remotes will work again.
