Astrostart remote car starter

I just purchased a 2006 chevy 2500. This truck has an astrostart remote car starter. The unlock and lock buttons work and the remote indicates that the vehicle is starting but the truck does not turn over when the button is pushed.

    I also bought a vehicle with an astro car starter. I had to replace the batteries and now it does not work at all.

SOURCE: car will not start using the key fob

In some cases, if you hold down a button too long on the remote fob, the starter module goes into a setup "menu", which is possible. You didn't change the fob batteries lately, did you? It sounds like you will have to 'retrain' the fob with the starter unit so that it re-learns what to do when you push the start button. With the "Ultra" brand, you use the button on the windshield antenna to retrain your unit. I'm not sure about the Autopage brand. An installer should be able to reprogram it for you for $10, and that would be the easiest if you can't find the data by doing a Google search.

SOURCE: both remotes failed to either

no reset button, sorry. If the starter is turning over, then it's more than likely not an alarm or keyless problem. if it was even connected, the starter kill feature is used to "cut" the starter wire from the ignition and the starter itself, and if you say it's turning over, that's where i get my answer for it not being the avital. of course there could be more to it, remote start added, and the type of car make a huge difference, could be a bypass module for bypassing a factory security system, so without any more info, that's all i can give you. hope this helps, dave

Astrostart troubleshooting

Remote start devices rely on the vehicle being in a particular position or "state" before they will be able to engage the starter. Typical things checked is the gear shift position (park or neutral?), engine already running?, door locked? and more. If any one of these checks finds that it is in the wrong position or state, it will not engage the starter. Remember, even if the door is properly locked, or the transmission is in park, etc. one of the several switches that the remote start device checks may be damaged or faulty.

If you can't see something obviously wrong, you'll probably need to return to the installer to repair / adjustment.

Good luck!

Alarm keeps turning on when I turn on my car starter

Okay, the Avital 4111 is a one button remote starter. So, it has no way of locking your car doors except if wired to lock after start or, after shut down. In the 2010 CRV, the unit should have been wired to disarm the alarm before start(brown wire in kick panel) and to unlock doors when running (grey wire in kick panel in same harness as disarm) with the press and release of the remote starter remote. If the unit is not working in cold weather it may be due to the installer using a valet key instead of a bypass and/or the unit may be programmed for virtual tachometer or voltage instead of having a true tachometer wire connected.

Remote start work but door will not unlock or lock!

Do the doors unlock when the remote starter is not running? If so, then you to connect to a different set of door lock wires.I usually connect to the factory alarm and disarm wires in the driver kick panel. They are blue for arm and pink for disarm. You test them by turning the key in the drivers door.

My preinstalled prestige remote starter has worked twice at the dealers and i got it to work once. my question is do this combination sounds fimiliar for a chevy 1500. lock doors...lock door again, ho

If it is an add on remote starter, then you would use the factory remote to start it. If using the factory remote to start there are a couple of combinations to start it. Try lock, unlock,lock for Prestige/Pursuit models. If Directed models, try lock, lock or lock, lock, lock. If its a GM remote starter, press lock and then hold the remote starter button(circle with arrow.

I bought a 2007 Camry with a remote start. The seller doesn't know how to start the car with the remote. The remote is a 4 button Viper 474V.

First, be sure that the remote is programmed for the vehicle by using it to operate the door locks(pressing the lock and unlock buttons). The parking lights should flash if nothing else works.The usual way to operate the remote starter with this remote is by pressing the * button once but, the option could have changed if the remote has been reprogrammed differently. So, try pressing the * button once. If this doesn't work press it twice within two seconds.If this doesn't work try pressing the lock and unlock buttons at the same time. If these steps fail to initiate the remote starter try the steps listed for the * button with the aux button. If either of the remote starter inhibits (hood pin, neutral safety) are active you should receive flashing parking lights for a failed attempt to remote start.

Command Start was an AstroStart brand, you need to find a dealer in order to get a replacement remote. They do not sell via the internet. The following link will assist you in finding a dealer near you.
