It starts and runs, than shuts off 3 seconds later? i havent tried anything yet, and it was installed in 2002. jeep grand cherokee.
Do you have anti-theft system bypass module installed? Transponder key bypass? Try unlocking the doors with your factory Jeep remote (turns off alarm) and leaving the gray transponder key in the ignition cylinder. Then try activating your remote start. Sounds like one of the factory anti-theft systems is still active. Basically if the car's computer doesn't want it to run, the car won't run. You have to fool the car into thinking it is OK to start and stay running without the key and anti-theft device deactivated. You need to leave a transponder key in the vehicle under the dash to bypass that system. You can get a generic one for about $20. You MUST have 2 original gray transponder keys in order to program a third. There is a sequence of putting one key in the ignition, then the second, then the new blank key so the cars computer knows to allow that key also. If you do not have 2 original keys, then you need to go to someone that can program properly like dealership or some locksmiths or alarm shops. Then they usually charge about $100 for a second key. You don't have to have the key cut. That way if someone finds the spare transponder key in the vehicle, it wont turn the ignition cylinder. The anti-theft bypass module (factory alarm bypass) runs about $25. Bulldog Security or JBS model 791 should work for your vehicle. If you live in an area where car thefts are common, you may not want to bypass these factory security measures.
Hope this information helps.
