The key hole behind the steering wheel could be locked inside. If that is locked, the key or the remote will no longer work. You need to consult a mechanic to take the cover off from behind the steering wheel and unlock it.

Have a great day!

Can a remote starter damage your ECM or PCM?


If the remote starter is installed correctly...No. All the remote starter does is emulate the key starting of a vehicle, without actually having the physical transponder key or unlocking the steering wheel and transmission shift. In order to do that , that is when you need the physical key. If the system is aftermarket and not installed correctly it could cause a short in the starting system or allow the vehicle to run endlessly without timing out. If you are installing an aftermarket remote start system I suggest you consult a professional installer as pcm and ecm are part of the starting system of new vehicles and must be treated correctly inorder not to short them out.

When I put the key in the ignition it doesn't try to start everything else comes on then shuts off. I drove it yesterday but now it won't work


The remote starter module is not getting an electrical signal when you turn the key to the on position after remote stating the vehicle. When you depress the brake without turning the key on the vehicle shuts down. The remote module thinks the key is off even when you turn it on. There is a loose connection or the remote start device is defective.

Willnot start Just chatters like the starter gear is not going into the flywheel


Check battery charge level. If OK, check electrical connections. Check voltage drop across starter.

Need to remove the starter motor


Gather all of the fob remote car starters for your car, unless you only have one. Insert your key into the ignition turn it to the "On" position --- right before actually starting the car, the lights should turn on. Press and hold the "Lock" button on your fob remote car starter for one second. Turn your key to the "Off" position --- the car lights should turn off. Do this within five seconds of turning the key to the "On" position and don't remove the key once you've turned it to the "Off"...

Remote starter


Apparently the vehicle was in park enough to get the key out, but not enough to get it to turn to start or allow the remote starter to work. Once it had been jiggled around and put ALL the way into the PARK position, all works well again!

Remote starter


I had the same issue with my remote start on another vehicle, the part that bypasses the code on the key had to be reset. The way we figured it out was everything was normal except the vehicle did not start & the security light flashed rapidly.
