Wont' start unless extremely close to the auto-30ft or less

Is there a way to adjust the range? Just got this on a new subaru outback and had to stand dead center ten feet away to start it. Next day was able to do it within thirty feet-outside, free of any obstructions.

Its possible that the units antenna need to be relocated higher in the vehicle, or the area from which you are transmitting from has interference issues.

Good luck...

My 03 Honda Accord Ex - check engine light is on. Pep Boys put a scope on it for me and the Code Description is PO171 (lean bank 1). Do you have any suggestions in regards to the order in which I should...

PO121 : TP Sensor Performance = The PCM supplies 5V to the TP sensor(throttle position). The TP sensor is a variable resistor that drops the voltage to about 4 volts at WOT(wide open throttle) to less than 1 volt at closed throttle. Some TP sensors are adjustable. others have a learn procedure to determine closed throttle. PO171 Fuel Trim System Lean = In closed loop the PCM adjusts fuel delivery based on H2OS 1 readings and is indicated by long & short fuel trim values. If lean the PCM will add fuel (fuel trim above 0%) & if rich the PCM will reduce fuel(fuel trim below 0%) PO128 ECT Below Thermostat Regulating Temperature = possible failed thermostat, low or empty on coolant, Engine Coolant Temp Sensor, Poor connection/Harness/Wires, faulty PCM Connection. I think you hit the nail on the head , the ECT Sensor ( which is different than the temp sensor for the dash gauge)

When I press the button open and close doors its works but when I press the starter button the light flashes works but the car remote does not start.

If the parking lights are flashing when you attempt to start the vehicle, it is an visual notification to you as to the reason WHY it doesn't start.
Six flashes of the parking lights is (-) or (+) shutdown and seven flashes is neutral safety shutdown. These are the most common reasons for remote starter malfunction. The (-) shutdown relates to the hood pin switch. A malfunction in this area occurs when the hood pin switch fails to make contact with the hood when closed. Adjusting the pin or the bracket it may be attached to will solve the problem. The (+) shutdown relates to brake wire. Unless you have your foot on the brake while attempting to remote start, the issue could be with the brake switch or the wire making contact with 12 volts during remote start operation. The neutral safety shutdown relates to either the toggle switch or, if this is a new installation, the thin black with white stripe wire NOT being connected to ground. If your remote starter has worked before and, is not working now, the issue will be with the toggle switch. The toggle switch will be located (usually) under the dash near the left kick panel. The kick panel is where your left would rest when driving.
