It is possible that the Tach/RPM monitor circuit (an integrated system that informs the RSM [remote starter module] that the engine has started and is running) is malfunctioning or is not properly connected, hence the continuous effort of the RSM to start an engine that is already running, causing damage to the cars starter and possibly other circuits and/or wiring.
Return the car to the installer and have diagnostics ran on the Tach/RPM monitor circuit.
Your system may have a hardware or programing choice that will allow you to decide between a  tached or tachless operation, depending on the model that is installed.
I hope this helps... Good luck

If you have the correct instructions and it asks for you to push a valet button, it is normally found inside the vehicle. Look around the lower dash and foot area and around the drivers side area for a small push button that does not look factory installed. May be red or black. If it is a newer model remote start, the button could also be on the remote start antenna usually mounted in the middle of the windshield.

You did not mention the year/make/model of your vehicle but, the issue appears to be the factory alarm. The installer failed to make the connection. If you intend to make the connection yourself I would need information pertaining to the vehicle. The (-) pulse before start wire for Prestige remote starters is black with a blue stripe. It is in a 4 pin connector at the module. This wire can be used to disarm the factory alarm before the remote start sequence.

I bought a 2007 Camry with a remote start. The seller doesn't know how to start the car with the remote. The remote is a 4 button Viper 474V.

First, be sure that the remote is programmed for the vehicle by using it to operate the door locks(pressing the lock and unlock buttons). The parking lights should flash if nothing else works.The usual way to operate the remote starter with this remote is by pressing the * button once but, the option could have changed if the remote has been reprogrammed differently. So, try pressing the * button once. If this doesn't work press it twice within two seconds.If this doesn't work try pressing the lock and unlock buttons at the same time. If these steps fail to initiate the remote starter try the steps listed for the * button with the aux button. If either of the remote starter inhibits (hood pin, neutral safety) are active you should receive flashing parking lights for a failed attempt to remote start.

I have a 01 Jimmy with a bulldog remote starter that when it was installed worked ok. Now its 2 years later and it tries to start but will not fire. Cranks over just a couple of times then kick out.

there should be a way in the settings of the brain that lets you pick a longer cranking time. idk exactly how to do it but if you look in the manual that came with it or go on the web site or call the company they should be able to help you

Car won't start, makes clicking sound

If you have a bulldog remote start, you should have it removed right away. I work at best buy, and we will not install these any more because of the problems they cause. You should buy something made by DEI, they cost a little more, but are very well made and come with a lifetime warrenty.

Here is page 2 of the owners manual, Hope it helps.

This will not start the vehicle if any one of the following situations exists;
The vehicle's hood lid is opened.
The gear shift selector is not in Park.
The brake pedal is depressed.
The safety control switch is in the Off position.

1. To start the vehicle, press and release the transmitter button two times within 2
seconds. The vehicle will start and remain running for the pre-programmed 5,10,15,20 minute run cycle. As a visual indication, the parking lights will flash or remain on depending on the setting by your installation center.

2. When you arrive at the vehicle, turn the ignition key to the ON position (not the spring loaded start position), then step on the brake pedal to disengage the remote starter. The
vehicle will continue to run, but now on it's own power.
NOTE: The engine will stop running before the pre-programmed run cycle has expired if you perform any one of the following functions;
-Press and the button on the keychain transmitter two times within 2 seconds.
-Depress the brake pedal.
-Open the vehicle's hood
-Place the unit in the safety control disabled mode.

The Push-Button LED control switch allows you to temporarily disable the remote starting function of the system. This recommended whenever the vehicle is being serviced. To place the system in the service mode:

1) With the system disarmed/unlocked, and the ignition switch off Press and Hold the PRLED on.
2) Turn the ignition switch on, off, on, off, on, off.
3) The LED begins to flash two short flashes followed by one long flashes and continues this pattern until returned to normal mode of operation. This puts the unit into the R/S Override mode indicating that the remote start is in the service mode and will not start from RF or any other input Posse or otherwise.
To Exit R/S Override Mode
1) With the system disarmed, Press and Hold the PRLED on.
2) Turn the ignition switch on, off, on, off, on, off.
3) The LED turns off indicating that the R/S unit is fully functional one again
