Hello, What has happened is your remote has lost its programming.. Just like with most electronics, when something is reset or powered off, or even when the battery dies ....the programming software is lost. The remote has to be reprogramed either by a dealer (suggested) or by an aftermarket outsource..Hope this helps...This could help with almost all remotes.

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.

SOURCE: 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.

Did it ever work as far as you Know? Some vehicles have a coded key and if the key is not in the ignition at the time the remote is activated it will not start. Some systems have a key hidden in the system and some have a bypass. It is hard for me to tell you which you have as not being the installer. You may have to contact Avital or go to thier web site for more detailed info.
