Starter seems to work fine when it does start. It has a remote starter
on it. Someone mentioned that GM has an issue with the security systems
not allowing the vehicles to start and that there might be a series of
steps that need to be performed to resync the system. The truck has the
2.3 L in it with only 35,000 miles on it. Most of the time when
it does not start it is when using the key not the remote starter. It
seems that if you turn everything off it will eventually "reset" and
decide to start.

If you are sure that everything is connected properly, then the only explanation could the ground when running from the remote starter to the bypass. If you are using data to data(D2D), switch over to wire to wire. Test the ground when running connection from the remote starter (white) to the ground when running connection of the Xpresskit (blue). You could even go so far as to connect the ground when running of the bypass to constant ground for the test. You CANNOT leave this wire connected to chassis ground. Also, that vehicle has a second ignition wire(white) that MUST BE power up for remote start. If not, it will trigger the check engine light.
If it is an add on remote starter, then you would use the factory remote to start it. If using the factory remote to start there are a couple of combinations to start it. Try lock, unlock,lock for Prestige/Pursuit models. If Directed models, try lock, lock or lock, lock, lock. If its a GM remote starter, press lock and then hold the remote starter button(circle with arrow.
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!
Maybe the installer did not hook up the remote starter unit to disarm the factory security system upon entry or remote-starting. Ask the installer to double check that part of the install as it would cause the factory security to trigger even though you unlocked the vehicle with the remote start unit remote.
You installed this unit yourself, correct? You mentioned the bypass unit but not the remote starter unit. First, are all of the car's power wires connected...ignition(pink), 2nd ignition(green or white), accessory(orange)? There is a brown but it is radio accessory and not necessary for remote starter installation. Second, make sure that the ground for the XK06 is connected to the pass lock ground wire(black or orange with black) and not chassis ground. Next, check the ground when running(GWR, brown) from the XK06...make sure that it is connected to the remote starters ground when running. Now, it CANNOT be connected during programming, so make sure that you connected it AFTER you programmed the module. You didn't mention the remote starter unit but this wire is blue/white for Directed, light blue for Prestige and blue with black for some Code. Next, make sure that the ignition and starter wires of the XK06 are properly connected to the vehicle or remote starter's ignition and starter wires. You stated that the remote starter starts when you turn the key to accessory on...what about with just putting the key in the ignition(withoput turning the key)?
no reset button, sorry. If the starter is turning over, then it's more than likely not an alarm or keyless problem. if it was even connected, the starter kill feature is used to "cut" the starter wire from the ignition and the starter itself, and if you say it's turning over, that's where i get my answer for it not being the avital. of course there could be more to it, remote start added, and the type of car make a huge difference, could be a bypass module for bypassing a factory security system, so without any more info, that's all i can give you. hope this helps, dave
I Sounds like the factory alarm has not been disabled or bypassed properly yet. The car thinks that someone somehow got into the car while it was locked and tried to start it. Had the same issue on my car and had to unlock then lock it again to start it.
