My 2004 Ford Taurus remote starter will not start the car. All other remote options are working. How ever if I have the key in the ignition and press remote start it will start. Please help.


The problem here is the remote start system is not giving out the correct transponder code to the security system, this locks out the starter. As to how you program the remote start I have no clue as to what you need to do.

You need to proof read your problem, confusing. Motor turning over and one starting are different. Is the remote factory? If not you need to disconnect the power to it and try again.

I really think you have some other problem going on that you think is the starter. Maybe a starter relay. Does it just not start when it is warm and after it sits it starts? Does you remote starter switch bypass the key switch and go straight to the starter and then it aways cranks over. That would indicate to me that something is either wrong with the key switch or wiring to the starter relay or solenoid.

I just recently purchased a 1996 cadillac el dorado etc. it starts then shuts right off. i dont know if it is something wrong with the anti theft system. maybe the keys. i need to know how to check this. i...


Heres the deal. When you put a remote starter on this year Cadillac (and about 100 other GM models) you have to bypass the security system. On these vehicles, that chip in your key has to communicate with the ignition/lock cylinder and then the TDM (computer) to allow your starter to start and/or allow the injectors to continue working. So what people will do is "bypass" the key and lock cylinder to fake the TDM into believing it has the correct key chip inserted. This allows you to remotely start a vehicle with an antitheft. My guess is that your TDM has now failed. Since the remote starter (which is hooked directly to starter) works and the key doesnt AND we already know that the system has been altered.... I'd put money on the TDM (theft deterrant module). Check out this link. You'll find an answer to your problem for sure. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

Dear,
Check if the remote Battery is genuine (I mean full) other wise maybe it's a relay issue or timer issue in the module itself (which you installed).

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.

your cars antitheft system is trying to prevent the car from being stolen so it is shutting it offf after it starts. go back over step by step you installation instructions make sure the ring around the ignition that comes with the remote starter is taped into the exact loacation it needs to be, or the cars own anti theft system will not notice it and will try to shut car off. its an anti theft feature. if this doesn't wotk you will not be able to use this remote starter. i ran into the same problem finally got it to work poperly.

1998 Ford F-150 won't start w/ the key, but will w/ remote start.


Always verify that there are no aftermarket devices causing interference, such as alarms, remote starters or other devices utilizing transponders. Devices that power up the PCM without powering up the PATS Control module can experience no-start concerns. It is probbally a key issue depending on the PATS system in that truck you may have to have more than one key coded into the transponder. Try you spare key.

Car starts with remote starter. The start procedure with key?


Well, it sounds like your ignition switch is bad or the remote starter you have also has an alarm with a starter immobilizer. Do you have the owners manual to your remote starter? If not you can always remove the immobilizer part of the alarm by hooking the start wire back together from the ignition switch that is cut when you hook it up.
