Prestige aps-57 remote start...car won't start

I have a prestige aps-57 in a 2001 Ford Escape. Had some engine work done, replaced the main computer in the car and after that the remote start won't work. The power comes on in the car 3 times but the starter never engages. The door locks still work. Checked the 2 inline fuses and the hood switch and they're O.K. The led on the small button for resetting is off. Any ideas what to check would be appreciated. I cannot find a number for Audiovox customer support. The dealer that installed this is no longer in buisiness.
thanks,
Steve

    It did turn out to be the immobilizer bypass. The repairman Canged the code in the keys so the immobilizer bypass had to be reprogramed.

    thanks,

Hello hope this can help you. First check the starter wire, it is tan/lt blue located at the ignition harness. usualy during installation of the remote start system this wire is cut leaving you with two ends. one wire is coming from the ignition switch the other is going to the starter. the brain of the alarm hooks into both of these wires. if the repair man cut the wires from the brain and spliced them together he has just put the system back to OEM status leaving the alarm no way to engage the starter. I believe that may be where the problem lies but if not then I would say check your immobilizer bypass module the repair man mave have diconected that.

Thank you,
Luis

2001 ford f-350 which wires to hook up to prestige model APS-997E remote start and alarm.


The installation manual should tell you. If you don't have it, don't do it. If you put power to the wrong wire... You can trash Computers on your truck. I have never installed on. But I removed several hundred because they interfere with normal operation of the computers.

Check engine light reset for 2001 ford escape


On any car 1996 or newer after a repair is made the memory in the computer has to be cleared the light will not go away by itself. The proper way to clear this is with a scanner or code reader but if you dont have any other way unhooking the battery will force the computer to loose all its memory and start all over and the light will go away. If the light returns after a few days you still have a problim.
