Take out spark plug to see if you are getting spark. Check to see if you are getting fuel. You will need to know if its a gas problem or electrical. Post back and tell me the results, we will go from there. If you can not do this, I would recommend finding a friend to help.

My electronic key won't start my car


If your check engine light is on or you have low oil pressure, the ecu will not let the vehicle remote start. All of the doors must be locked, and the hood cannot be open. Are all of your doors locking remotely before you try to remote start the vehicle?

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.

My factory remote starter won't work, when button on key fob is pushed the parking lights flash like they're suppose to but the engine doesn't start.


Make sure to hit the lock button twice then hold the start button until starting. There can be several issues for a malfunction.If this does not work we can definitely look into other options but the biggest reason for an factory remote start not functioning is the check engine light being on.It completely disables the remote start function. Here is a list of possibilties of why the remote start will not function.
A current vehicle DTC that illuminates the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL)
• The vehicle is in valet mode. • More than 2 remote starts have been attempted. • The hazard switch is in the ON position. • A current hazard switch DTC is set. • The vehicle hood is ajar. • A current hood ajar DTC is set. • The CTD system detects an alarm trigger. • Excessive engine RPM • Excessive coolant temperature • Accelerator pedal position greater than 0 percent • Vehicle not in park • Vehicle theft deterrent malfunction • A current automatic transmission shift lock control system DRC is set. • A vehicle speed sensor signal is detected by the ECM.

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.

I have an o3 ford escape with an aftermarket autopage remote start system.when i try to use the remote start it flashes the parking lights and all the accesories fire up but will not ingauge the starter....


the issue is the securilock system I installed one in my 03. You need a spare coded key (one that starts the vehicle) and a Bulldog 791 kit. ths will store the spare key and tell the vehicle it is not being stolen. Its the only way unless you want to leave your key in the ignition. BTW, the Theft light is on when you engage the remote started w/o the key in the ignition, Been there.

2000 Toyota Rav4, just purchased. Has a two button Toyota FOB for door locks, alarm and remote starter? . The vehicle has a OEM Toyota remote starter installed but I don't know what combination of buttons...


My ex girlfriend had a factory installed honda remote strt on her vehicle. It was activated by hitting the lock button two times in succession. Some vehicles use a combination of the lock-unlock buttons. try using some combinations on the remote, many "oem" remote starts are installed by aftermarket installers so who knows what they did as a start function, it could also have been changed by the previous owner.

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!

Keyless remote wont work, vehicle completely shut down


Hi Russell,

Absolutely no power? No dome light? No head lights? Nothing?
When you step on the brake pedal, no brake lights?

If true, start at the source and pop the hood.

This is going to be a bit of back and forth dialogue. I'll ask some questions and you get me the answers. That way we can get to the root of the problem. To save time, I'll ask multiple questions at a time. Here goes.

  • Check the battery. Is it still there? (Valid question with no evidence of power)
  • Are the terminal clamps tight?
  • Are the terminals clean and free of corrosion?
  • Are all the belts in place and tight? (pay special attention to alternator)
  • If you have a voltmeter. test the voltage at the battery terminals. It should be +12.5VDC.
Try getting a jump, when the cables are attached does anything light up?
Does it turn over and start?
Does it do anything?

Comment me back with your findings

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.
