Interesting, but makes sense that remote starter be disabled if there is a potential engine problem. Basically, if you are remoting starting and there is a (known) problem with the engine, could malfunction and cause a fire or other serious damage to other components.

Sounds like some engineer was thinking correctly by disabling it.

What is the engine code - you can take to an auto parts store like autozone to get them to read it and printout the problem.

From there, should be able to get more direction as to how to solve the problem. Better to fix the underlying problem than risk a serious failure.

SOURCE: 2007 Chevy Silverado when my check engine light

It's a safety feature. For example, if there is no oil pressure when you start the engine, you could not see that unless you were in the car and could spin a bearing or seize the engine by starting it remotely and letting it run unattended. So when the check engine light is on, there is something not working properly with the engine/engine management system and it wants you in the car where you can see the guages and turn the engine off immediately if there's a serious problem.

Remote start does not work and check engine lite on


The remote starting feature of the vehicle may be disabled by several reasons, among them is a current fault code recorded by the engine control module indicated by the presence of the check engine light on. You shoud have your vehicle scanned for trouble codes to determine the cause of the check engine light on, proceed with the necessary repairs, and afterwards ,the remote starting will normalize as well. good luck.

Remote start does not work


henryj153, no offence guy, but if you dont know something, dont try and give advice. Now for the guy with the problem mattpointer:
These cars come with remote start as an option, and it is problably your BCM (Body Control Module), which is a $380 part, and the dealer has to install it, because of the programing... Here is a free way of checking if that is it. This part ties in certain vehicle systems, and for some reason when the BCM goes bad, so does the GPS, that is tied in with OnStar Check to see if your onstar can recieve GPS... press the blue OnStar button and ask them to locate you. If you dont have the service, they may want to start the service, just humor them as if you were interested, and ask them to locate you first, because you want to make sure the equiptment works. If they cant locate you, but you are able to use OnStar to contact them, most likely The BCM is bad, and thats what it is. This car has some great technology, but the intergration of this tech is in the BCM, and it goes bad.... so its a trip to the dealer for you my friend.
