Does the car start normally with the key? if not there maybe another problem with your car.
ensure your car is not in gear and that the park break is on. these are safety features that may not allow the engine to start remotely.

Astrostart 2100 autostart will not work all the time


It would almost appear that your battery is weak. If the engine doesn't freely turn over the remote start will not work because it recognizes the problem. I would also hope that you plug in your block heater when it's really cold.

no. I'd suggest to disconnect a battery for 15 mins, reconnect, wait for 5 mins and try to restart. If it doesn't help (sometimes there's a program block to prevent stealing equipment) call a dealer

You must turn the key forward 2 clicks until right before it would normally start. Leave like this for ten minutes. (No less) Roll the key back to regular position wait 5 seconds and repeat process. This must be done 3x in a row without starting in between. Whole process should take 30 minutes. After last ten minutes, roll back, count to five, then try to start your car. If this doesn't work, there is a way to bypass the system and never need that special transponder key again. This link explains. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

This sounds like there is a dead spot in your starter. The easiest way to resolve this issue is to replace your starter. Many times, if you take a lot of short-distance trips over the life of your car, the wiring inside the starter itself will wear (short trips means starting it more often, causing a lot of wear over time). Then the inner wiring of the starter wears too much, it forms a "dead spot" -- when the starter is stopped at a very specific spot i will not form the magnetic force needed to torn the starter motor. This is a common issue which can be dealt with for a time if you have to save the money to replace the starter. Tapping the starter, or arcing it with a screwdriver makes the inner workings of the starter jump a little, allowing it to move out of the dead spot and kick over as normal, but it is only a temporary fix. Unless you refurbish electronics for a living, it is very unlikely that you will be able to repair the starter on your own, and such a repair takes some time, so you are better off to replace it than try to repair the starter itself.
As long as the starter does not happen to stop in the dead spot, it will work as normal ... but in time the dead spot will spread, causing the issue to worsen. You can keep forcing it to turn with the two tricks you used until you have had the opportunity to earn the money to replace the starter (or until you have a day off to get the repairs done) .. but over time this can cause more damage to other parts of the car, so I recommend replacing the starter as soon as you can.

2008 impala will not start ,when trying to start service traction control light comes on


Does it crank over normal and just won't start or does it seem to turn over slowly or not at all. If it doesn't crank over like normal, test your battery. Low voltage will do strange things.

The Ignition and autostart


Sound like a reversal of wires on the autostart. Should only cut out if you don't have the key in ignition and apply brake. Did you have this installed or was it in when you bought the vehicle?

Many autostart devices also have security systems incorperated, first I would try to arm and disarm the system then try to start again. Then check the autostart controll unit to see if there is a reset or fuse. If not a reset often times there is a disable for the autostart witch will allow you to diagnos the starting problem without the aftermarket device. If non of that helps post your next message with an update plus make and model # for the autostart.
