Remote start only starts with key in the ignition

It sounds like the immobilizer bypass module has either lost its programming due to the dead battery or a voltage spike from jump starting/recharging the battery or it has malfunctioned. Without knowing which module is installed, it is not possible to determine if it can be reprogrammed. The immobilizer bypass module substitutes the transponder that is in your key and allows the vehicle to start. When it is malfunctioning, it may not be providing a signal or providing the wrong signal the vehicle ECU is expecting. The reason you can remote start the car with the key in the ignition is because the transponder is being read fromthe key and the ECU is allowing the vehicle to start.

My truck wont start when i use the remote. the power in the tuck turn on but the truck never turns over. 2006 ford f-150

Sounds as if your immobilizer bypass is malfunctioning. To test, remote start vehicle. Check vehicle cluster (gages). If the immobilizer bypass is the issue, there will be car/lock symbol flashing rapidly. To confirm, put the key in the ignition(do not turn), remote start the vehicle. It should start. If the vehicle starts, remove key, remote start again without key. If the vehicle does not start, have the immobilizer serviced. If the vehicle does not remote start with the key in the ignition, the issue may be with the remote starter's starter output.

Can you program the cars key fob to start the car for as-tcbm remote start

The Audiovox ASTCBM is nothing more than an immobilizer bypass interface to be used with a remote starter unit. First, you need a remote starter. Then, you may or, may not need the ASTCBM, depending on the vehicle.

01 chevy malibu won't start, security light blinks but after leaving the switch in the on position for ten minutes it will start is there a permanent solution to this?

I have the same problem on my 2001 malibu. Do a google search for 2001 Malibu Passlock malfunction. You have to have the passlock system replaced, although I've seen many forums where people have had it replaced only to have it malfunction again because Chevy never made a new passlock that does not malfunction for older Malibus. Also, if you get a remote car starter I've heard this will disable the passlock therefore removing the issue of it malfunctioning so you would not have to worry about it not starting.

It sounds as if the vehicle is not receiving power to the starter. This could be due to a bad connection from the remote starter to the vehicle. That's the simple fix. It could also be due to a malfunction with the bypass module. When spares keys are used for the bypass there can be an issue with malfunctioning in colder weather (especially Ford). If an antenna ring was place around the ignition cylinder, it may have shifted position and there may be a lack of communication with the vehicle's antenna ring. If a data bypass module was used it may not have a good ground while running, chassis ground or a constant 12 volts.

The PATS bypass module should have disconnected during the new key programming. First, you need two programmed keys present. Put the first key in the ignition, turn ignition on, wait for security light to go out. Remove key, immediately put second key in the ignition and turn ignition on. Wait for the security light to go out, remote start vehicle with controller, immediately remove key. Let the vehicle start and run for approximately 10 seconds. Apply brake to shutdown, wait approximately 10 seconds. Remote start to test. If vehicle does not start, repeat process.

The most common thing is malfunction in your remote control. Try moving the remote control to another closed room, and see if it still does it. If it does... well, I know how to setup a TV to turn itself off after a period of time you set, but how to turn it on? no.

Also something, might be stupid, but I'd tell it anyways, is that someone is fooling you by ór using the remote control, ór having another remote control, and turning it on all the time.

And another thing. By "off", do you mean standby? or actually turned off by pressing the button? Because this is only if it is turned off with the remote control. If it is explicitly turned off by the button, then it might be a malfunction on your tv, meaning you could call the support of the company that makes these tv's, and if it is actually a malfunction, you could get a new tv for free, if your warranty hasn't outdated yet.

That's all I can think of, I hope it helps.

Parking Brake Bypass


You need the remote to do the code thing, or try hooking the parkbrake sensor up to full time power to trick the unit into thinking that the parkbrake is off. Try that and see how you go. If it doesnt work that way, try taking it to full time chassis(earth)
