OEM remote starter installed on my wifes 06 Escape by local "experts" quit working. The dash gages go thru the little dance but starter fails to engage. I didn't get an operators manual for it, so I have no idea on how to reset or program.

Installations of this nature are usually reserved for professionals. However, get out your installation manual. You will also need two single pulse double throw relays and some diodes. First you will need to locate the ground when running.This wire might be labeled " (-) third ignition". The first relay for the starter will be wired like so: starter wire to 86, fused 12 volts to 87, 30 out to vehicle second starter wire, 85 to ground when running. The second relay will be wired 86 to vehicle ignition, 87 to fused 12 volt, 30 out to second ignition, and 85 to ground when running.
There are two types of starters for Dodge, if you installed new battery, check to see if the remote start is to ignition module or starter solenoid, then make sure the circuit has not been closed-they go in series circuit!
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.
It sounds like the bypass module is not bypassing. The next time that you attempt to remote start the vehicle, look at the cluster for a flashing key. If there is a key inside a car flashing...your bypass module is not functioning.
look under dash for the unit, remove the 2 fuses in red jackets wait 2 minute then replace fuses
if you have a 4 BUTTON REMOTE CONTROL:
You will need to take the unit out of safety mode, to do this you will need to ground the hood pin switch wire, then put your foot on the brake, next hit any button on the remote and the clicking will stop. Then you will need to take the hood pin switch wire off of ground and take your foot off of the brake and see if the remote will work with the unit
if you have a 2 BUTTON REMOTE CONTROL:
You will need to take the unit out of safety mode, to do this you will need to put your foot on the brake, next hit any button on the remote and the clicking will stop. Then you will need to take your foot off of the brake and see if the remote will work with the unit
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.
