Question about AutoCommand Remote Car Starter Add-On

1 Answer

Remote start doesn't always work

I recently had an auto command remote start installed on my dodge stratus...not sure of the model number, but it also has unlock,lock and trunk pop as well as remote start feature. The lock, unlock and trunk pop work normally, but the remote start is somtimes problematic. It is almost like the reciever doesn't recieve the signal all the time. Sometimes I can push the button(requires 2x to remote start it) and it will start and sometimes i will push it 3 or 4 times and can't get it to work. Do you really have to push the button exactley right all the time for it to work? Is this normal to all of these systems? It seems like it should be more responsive than that. Can any one help me out

Thanks in advance

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.

Hi Guru/Master, I have a 2006 Dodge Stratus SXT, 2.4L Engine. It has AIRBAG light on, and horn doesn't work. I guess it is the clock spring needs to be replaced. I couldn't find the part/model...

I don't believe this part is available aftermarket. I recently was looking for the same part on an 01, and could only find it at the dealer. It was right around 135 dollars. Have your vin number handy when you call them, they will probably ask you for it.

A fuel pressure test will tell you if the pump is performing as it should, the first step would be to scan the computer to see what the code or codes are. Has the vehicle had a tune up recently if ever?

Please tell us your NOT replacing a cam sensor because someone told you to get a code read at some auto parts store. This is like the flu spreading on this site. Codes DO NOT always mean a sensor is bad. Test it before you throw parts at it.
