Sometimes just dirty or loose battery connections cause this...current is OK to lights radio etc...but not enough to engage the starter...Any clicking sound indicates low battery...no turning at all may be the starter...Hope the battery posts (clean & retighten) is the problem.

SOURCE: cant unlock car while battery is dead

The driver's door lock is a mechanical linkage, not electric. Turn the top of the key toward the front of the vehicle. If it will not open, there is a mechanical problem in the door; your local AAA tow company can break in with a "slim jim".

SOURCE: Can a dead electronic key cause the car battery to

Then, yes, I would say a remote starter key with a questionable battery could cause the battery to drain. Could be that all the necessary components are not being de-energized.

I would add that it's a long shot, but it's worth a try.

My 2000 corvette won't crank up---no lights will come on-----nothing works in dash, not even the radio


I would take the battery cables loose and actually verify battery is not leaking. If "security" is causing no start then you can tell by watching the security lamp on dash. It should be on solid when key is turned to run if it is part of your concern. also sounds like you could have a body control module problem it controls the interior lamps which may explain clicking you heard and also controls the security.

Keep us updated.

Won't start, lights work and radio also but will not turn over


If lights work, radio but not turn over. First of listen to see if it clicks when turning key, if that happens most likely it is the solenoid on the starter not triggering, if you hear nothing when turning the key, then the cable coming from the battery that goes down to the starter is loose, bad connection. Make sure that the cable from battery is tight, and clean. If Like I said you hear a click when trying to start car, then it is starter/solenoid issue. I hope this helps, if it does please rate my free advice accordingly> Thanks Mike. and check out my personal expert site....

Sounds like battery or battery cable problems to me.
If the battery is bad, you cannot trust ANYTHING the computer is telling you. They tend to set all kinds of codes when the battery has a shorted cell. (including fuel pump circuit and transmission system codes) They get "delirious" from malnutrition. You need to have your charging/starting system thoroughly tested.
