Why does the car start by itself after I installed the remote starter?

    The car will start immediately after the button is pressed, but sometimes no body will be around the remote and we will walk outside to find the vehicle has been running, when nobody pressed the button.

I could be to things, if the remote start has a remote timer, that you can program the remote start to start every hour for like 5 minutes, or there is an activation wire on the remote start that is getting grouned somehow and allowing the car to start. What i would do is look in your manual and see how to bring the remote start back to all its original factory settings, and make sure all loose wires are taped up and not touching anything. If you need help on manuals or anything let me know and i can walk you through it.

Remote start chevy

Clean all the battery contact points on the remote starter, then re-install your battery. If that doesn't fix the problem, try a fresh battery.

Make sure you remove the little piece of contact paper on the battery itself before installing it. Hope that helps.

Remote will only start when i am close to vehicle

It depends on many things - mostly the range of the system itself and especially where you located the remote antenna. Some installers don't use the antenna and that will limit range severely. Most manufacturers want the antenna routed up the windshield pillar and mounted near the top of the windshield glass. This gives best reception since glass does not hinder the RF signal. OF course, a weak battery in the remote can cause range issues as well.

Check if the remote Battery is genuine (I mean full) other wise maybe it's a relay issue or timer issue in the module itself (which you installed).

did you follow the procedure for programming the remote starter portion of the unit yet?? We get 20-30 calls a day because people do NOT program the starter to start a certain way. It is specified in the INSTALLATION manual that the unit needs to be programmed before using the remote starter.

Car starter not working

look under the dash for a small silver toggle switch....this is a disable switch for the remote start portion of the may have kicked it / bumped it with your foot, causing the remote start portion to be deactivated. Just flip the switch the opposite way and try again..
Also, there may have been a pin style switch installed under the hood...Check to see if it is bent or broken, if it is, simply disconnect it and insulate the wire that was going to it. 
This wire is used as a safety to keep the vehicle from remote starting while the hood is keep people from being injured if the remote start is activated while the engine is being worked on. 
Have whatever shop installed the system replace your pinswitch if that is the problem.
