Remote start is intermittent working

Auto command remote start is not working properly on a 2005 dodge stratus. Unlock,lock and trunk pop work normally. Sometimes the car will die a minute or 2 after it is remotely started. Can anyone help?

    would this cause it to intermitently work though...sometimes it does start remotely, but not seems like the remote batteries are weak or something. How come it works sometimes and sometimes it doesn't? wouldn't the remote start not work at all?

    My girlfriend had an Astro Start RS-613 remote starter installed about a month and a half ago, and complains of intermittent no-start conditions, from various angles of approach and distances, and also from within her office building. Sometimes it works under all of these circumstances, sometimes not. It has a 1,500 ft range, and hardly ever, is she even half (or even a third) of that distance away from the vehicle. Any thoughts, ideas? What can cause interference in signal strength?

    have 2007 lexus es 24,000 miles. been having intermittent starting problems with keyless ignition. had it towed to Lexus when no one could get it started in my garage. they replaced start push button. next day same thing. ready to bring it back, then can't get it started.
    finally got it started, drove it to lexus and now they say it's because i had 2 fobs in the car. told my advisor that i put them in the car on the way down in case the fobs were the problem. this has happened at grocery store, dept stores etc. usually will start. batteries in fobs and lojack fobs have been changed. now i will pick up the car tomorrow and i know i'll be back. at first i used to think i was pushing start before stepping on the brake. NOT. service advisor says they've never seen this problem and they even had a lexus field tech there trying to figure it out. this is my 2nd lexus and the one with 100,000 miles on it never had a problem, that's why we bought another one. yes, when lexus tried to move it into a service bay it wouldn't start, but they think it's because 2 fobs in car. one fob does the same thing. i know when i pick it up tomorrow, i'm telling them, that i'll see them soon again.

The problem is your car is equiped with a passlock system you need a by pass mod. part number 555-L this is a dei part number this is the only company i use. it is a simple three wire hook up. if you got this far you will not have any trouble. one other thing to check is your ignition wirers make sure they have power when they are suposed to.if your still having problems or need more info on getting part let me know. i have alot of exp. with auto starts and keyless entry.

I added a security system, remote start, trunk release, etc to my '98 Toyota Camry. In the last few days the remote key ring has stopped working. I can still open the trunk from inside the car, but...

I'm curious to know how it is that you installed this power trunk release. My research tells me that it doesn't exist for this year Camry. However, if it does exist it's more than likely a reverse polarity wire requiring a relay and a diode. How are you opening the trunk from inside the car, with a release handle or are you pressing a button?
If you added a power solenoid to the trunk release you probably had to add a relay with 12 volt power. Check your connections and (hopefully) the fuse for the 2 volt power source.

The Camry you purchased may not be equipped with a power trunk. Press and hold the trunk button for appoximately 4 seconds. The trunk should release if the wire is connected and, you have a power trunk.
The Camry (and other toyotas) require a double pulse on the unlock wire. If the double pulse is not programmed the aftermarket unit will mimic the factory keyless entry. One press of the unlock button opens the drivers door. Immediately press the unlock button again to unlock the other doors.

Reprogram the remote: turn ignition on, press and release valet switch one time. Press and hold valet switch. While holding valet switch, press lock button on remote. The alarm should chirp to confirm entry into the programming mode (when you press and hold the valet button) and when you press the lock button. Turn ignition off. Test remote.

Polar Trunk pop

Most car alarms and remote starters will only provide a low current negative output for trunk release which is not enough to power the solenoid directly. I am not familiar with that brand. Please check your installation manual. If that is the case you must wire a relay to control the solenoid on the trunk. On the relay there will be numbers: 30 and 85 will be battery power through at least a 10 amp fuse. 87 will be your 12 volt wire to the solenoid. 86 will be your trunk output from the alarm brain. 87a will not be used. Also make sure the solenoid is properly ground. DC

My buttons on my 2005 honda accord 4 cylinder car wont work

I assume this is the only remote you have? If not does the other have the same result? Have you changed the battery in the remote? If yes, is it installed with the right polarization?

Remote start doesn't always work

It is that way because you wouldnt want the car starting when you have it it in your pocket or purse.
Sounds like the keypad contacts may need cleaning, or have been bent/broken/etc.
Have you tried another (backup) keyfob?
Please do this and report back.
If you are having problems, the installer should troubleshoot for you for free.
