Ford Bi Directional Remote Start

I only get feedback on my Fob 50% of the time. It is not a range issue as I am only 20 feet away from the car. The car usually starts, jsut don't get feedback to the fob. System was installed by Ford Dealership on a 2007 Fusion. Sometimes I get 2 blips on the red LED, but none on the green LED. The antenna was mounted on the back of the electronic rearview mirror by the dealership.

Hi there, I know someone who had the same problem, and it turns out that the keyfob battery was a little low for some reason straight out of the box.  They tried replacing the battery and it works much better now.  Hope it works that way for you too!

2003 malibu alarm won't stop

Well when you replaced the battery did anything else on the key fob work? Often times you have to reprogram the remote in order for it to function properly. Try getting inside the vehicle and manually lock all doors with the driver's side switch. Put the master key in the ignition switch and turn the switch to the run position but do not start it. Now push and hold the lock and unlock buttons at the same time until the locks make noise....may take 10 to 30 seconds. After you have the key fob programmed, see if the alarm will turn off with the remote. Did it work? The only way to totally turn off the alarm is with a GM Tech @ or 3 scan tool and go into body control bidirectional controlling procedures or with a very good aftermarket scanner with good bi-directional functionality.
The alarm works via the body control module on this vehicle and i am thinking it uses the PK2 system and if you do not have a properly coded key or the BCM is loosing memory, then check for any and every blown fuse and replace as start with.. If the vehicle stays running after starting then the bcm/key is reading correctly.

08 chevy impala remote start fob range

any further than 20 feet and you have the car started and running is an open invitation for people to steal your car before you get to it
however you can spend time on the net looking for a site that sells more powerful remotes

Are bi-directional remote star ts ok im thinking off putting it on my vehichle I heard bad things about it

This depends on the brand you are installing. I didn;t like them at first but a 2 way system is way better. It actually lets you know what is going on with your vehicle. I would recomment Auto Start TS-2471 easy to install and program and they work very well with few problems.

I have a BJC80 printern with a scanner head. My pc is an xp opertins system. It is connect to parallel port but when i try to scan, it sends me back an error message saying there is no communication.

One of two issues may be involved. 1) Make sure you have a bi-directional IEEE-1284 parallel printer cable, 6 feet or less long. 2) Make sure that the parallel port is set to ECP mode (the BIOS is accessed by hitting F1 or F2 during boot on many computer, check your manual.) Try a new cable (just in case the cable has just enough damage to prevent the scanner from getting the full bi-directional communication).

I hope this helps.

(the lack of bi-directional communication only disables the scanner, the printer will still work)

Remote start will work intermittently. have tried from 10 feet to 50 feet with same results. won't start. went to dealer they stated its because the range is not too high for the factory installed system....

Have you changed the battery in the remote?

Do so, then re-introduce the remote to the remote start system following the manufacturer's instructions, and the problem should be solved.
