Air injection system pump stuck open

The remote start is probably the fob. The check engine light is another issue. A specific code would have been more helpful to help me help you.

Remote start stop working and now check engine light is own. also had a blow out on my front passenger side and not monitor says to check tire monitor can i fix it or do it have to go to the shop.

The remote start will become inactive if the check engine light is on. You will probably need to go to shop to find out why the check engine light came on but alternatively if there is an advanced auto or Autozone they can scan these free of charge and tell what code or codes caused the engine light to come on and possibly what needs repared to correct the engine light.Once the engine is taken care of the remote start should start working again. The tire may just need replaced and all tires aired to proper pressure. Many of these once the condition are corrected driving them for a few minutes will reset the tpms but if it does not the tpms may need to be reset by a qualified shop.

My remote starter will not work. It is factory installed. It is not the clicker and yes, the check engine light is on

The remote start on this vehicle will not work if the check engine light is on.You will have to have the codes checked and repaired in for the system to work.You should also check to see if you are still under the factory warranty.It is 3 years and 36k miles.If you are over this then you are not under warranty.Hope this helps.Good luck.

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.
