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.

Open your car with the key on the passenger side then close the door and go around to the drivers side and lock the doors manually and close the doors while standing out side of the car.
Then use your remote to open the driver side door and start your car.
To resynchronize your transmitter, stand close to your vehicle and press and
hold the lock and unlock buttons on the transmitter at the same time for 15
seconds. The door locks should cycle to confirm synchronization. If the locks do
not cycle, see your dealer for service.
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
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
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)
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.
it all depends, if u r talking about factory installed system then not a very impressive range. yes it sure can go through the walls if the total distance between u and the vehicle is less then 50 meters.
