2011 ford escape limited the remote start stopped workng

Remote starter in valet mode Symptoms: Lock and Unlock buttons work as normal, but pressing Start does not produce any response from the vehicle.
Causes: Someone accidentally pressed the combination of buttons to put the car into valet mode, usually when the remote is in a purse or pocket. Also, many remote car starters will revert to valet mode when the vehicle is disconnected for service.
Hood Pin Has Broken or Failed Symptoms: Pressing Start results in several flashes of the parking lights but no start. If equipped, Lock and Unlock still function.
Cause: In most cases, the under-hood pin switch is broken or corroded.
Remote Control Loses Programming Symptoms: Pressing any button on the remote results in no response from vehicle.
Cause: It is rare, but does happen - in most cases, this is caused by a dead battery in the vehicle or the battery having been disconnected when being serviced.
Remote starters usually have some type of non-volatile memory to retain things like programming features and remote control codes. Like any "computer" device, sometimes they lose memory. When this happens, simply call the store that installed it for you. In some cases, they may be able to tell you how to reprogram it over the phone. Other times, you will have to return to the store for a technician to program it. In any case, this is rare with higher-end remote starters.
Remote is in Second-car Mode Symptoms: Pressing any button on the remote results in no response from vehicle.
Causes: A combination of buttons were accidentally pressed, which put the remote in second-car mode.
Again, this is very rare, but happens from time to time. Many remote car starter remote controls have the ability to start two vehicles. If the remote is accidentally placed into second-car mode, it will not start or operate vehicle #1.
Simply read your owner's manual or call your installer for directions on how to revert the remote back to car #1.

Hi Darrell. nice double post and this is a custom system
so if it breaks, you need to find the name of the black box.

take those to any auto repair or autoelectric and show them those docs and ask them to fix it.

so what are your choices, only 2.
  1. tow it to a shop (with docs)
  2. learn to fix it your self. (ask)
  3. remove this hacked up system from car return car to stock so any shop on earth can fix it and not cost a fortune figuring out the hacks. (and time getting documents to learn all that $$$ labor)

ive done #3 many a time, alarms (trash), and remote bs.
but its your call, your car and your cash.

I had a avital remote start pot on a 2004 chevy venture van. everything worked ok for a month then the remote locks, poer windows and dome lights quit working. are they all connected together for the...

Avital is one brand of remote starter that features easy-to-use keyless remotes. These remotes can be programmed wirelessly to your engine and then added to your keychain. Once programmed, you will be able to use the remote from as far as a couple hundred feet away in your house, the street or a parking lot. If your remote is not working, you can troubleshoot the remote and get it resynced in seconds.
  • Enter your caricon1.png, leave your driver's door open and insert your key into the ignition.
  • 2 Turn the ignition to the "On" position and press and release the "Valet" button on your remote.
  • Press and hold the "Valet" switch again after releasing the first time and wait for the system's siren to chirp and the LED lighticon1.png to blink.

  • 4 Continue holding the "Valet" button and then press the starter button on your remote.
  • 5 Wait for another chirp and release both buttons to complete the process.

    What is the valet button located inside of glove compartment used for

    It is used for programing the alarm, it is used to disarm the alarm without the remote, [in case remote is damaged] and it is used to put alarm system into valet mode, [service mode] valet mode is only really needed if the alarm has been programed for passive arming, [alarm arms itself].

    Your main use for the valet switch, [if programed for active arming instead of passive arming] is to have a way to disarm the alarm if the remote does not work.

    Crimestopper SP501 car alarm/remote starter will not respond. The 2 way one doesn't work, the sidekick does.

    You need to program your crimestopper sp-501 key fobs, you need to program both the 2-way and the 1-way key fobs, during the same key fob program session. First find your valet button/switch, when you have found it, turn your ignition on and press the valet button four times, if you have a toggle type switch for a valet switch, toggle it up and down four times, when its in remote key fob program mode, it will honk your horn 4-times followed by 4-parking light flashes. Once your have done this press the lock button on the 2-way key fob, horn will honk and the 2-way will sing a little song to confirm programed, then press the lock button on the 1-way key fob the horn honk will be your confirm programed. turn ignition off this will exit you from program mode. then shut all doors and test key fobs for operation functions....hope this helps you out

    I have a viper alarm on my car that wont shut off nor i cant start the car..and i have tried the button under my dash, how Can i shut it off??

    was it a professional or shade tree install? the following is off vipers website:
    disarming without a remote control
    This feature allows you to disarm the security system without the
    Remote Control should it be lost, damaged, or disabled. In order to
    disarm the system without a remote remote control, you must have
    the vehicle’s ignition key and know where the Valet button is
    located. Be sure to check with the installer for the location and the
    number of presses of the Valet button required to disarm the system.
    To disarm the security system,
    turn the ignition to the ON position.
    Press the Valet button the
    preset number of times (one to
    five times) within 15 seconds. After five seconds the system will
    disarm. If the system does not disarm, you may have waited too long;
    turn the ignition off and on and try again.
    if that doesn't work try this other

    valet mode
    You can prevent your security system from automatically arming
    and triggering by using Valet Mode. This is very useful when
    washing the vehicle or having it serviced. In Valet Mode, the
    security system will not arm, even with the Remote Control, but
    all convenience functions (door locks, trunk release, etc.) will
    continue to work normally.
    To enter or exit Valet Mode:
    1. Turn the ignition on.
    2. Turn the ignition off.
    3. Press and release the Valet
    button within 10 seconds.
    The status LED will light solidly if you are entering Valet Mode,
    and it will go out if you are exiting Valet Mode.

    My 2004 v6 ford explorer won't start new batery and new starter no luck wont even click ?

    Did you check the start relay for voltage? Ohms reading?

    If I remember correctly the circuit goes like this:
    Key turns ignition switch which puts voltage to the start relay which engages the solenoid.
    So if it isn't even clicking and your headlights seem to be working fine then it is either the ignition switch or the start solenoid coil.
    On older Fords the start solenoid used to be remote mounted on a fender. I heard newer Ford vehicles had it integrated with the starter like GM does.
    A quick visual inspection will tell you which and where you need to look.
    You might check if there is a fuse for that as well.
