This would only happen if you did not install the brake cut off switch. You will be able to shut the car off with the key after 15 minutes or with the remote.

SOURCE: I have a remote car starter on my 2004 chryler

The 2004 Town and country has a factory anti-theft immobilizer which uses a chip in the key. Without bypassing the immobilizer the vehicle will not run (the anti-theft disables the electronic furl pump). Is the factory security light on the cluster flashing when you try to remote start? if so, Re-check the bypass unit that was installed with the remote starter, the transponder should be mounted at the ignition switch, it could of slipped off. It is possible that it has lost its programming or even failed completely.

Remote start works but shuts off right away

When you say right is as soon as the vehicle starts....or is it 10-15-30 seconds later? Is this a factory remote start? If not, and you installed an aftermarket one, what is probably occurring is that your factory anti-theft system is seeing the vehicle running without the key in the ignition and activates the immobilizer which shuts down the vehicle. Aftermarket remote starts require adapter electronics to bypass the immobilizer until the operator enters the vehicle and inserts the key. This is why most aftermarket alarm systems are installed by trained pros.

My vehicle starts but then quits right away. As I walk towards my vehicle it starts on it's own, but then still quits.

All directed electronic starters have a feature that when you go to start it by the remote if the car didn't start the first time then it will try 2 more times and after the 3rd try it will just not try again. Depending on the car it can be a security bypass that is not allowing it to stay running or it can be a problem not knowing the car has started and it shuts itself down. You need to make sure the starter is connected to the tach signal so that it can stay running for you. This is the best way for the starter to know your car is running and will not shut itself down.

IMy problem is when Iuse my remote command start

There are fail safe's with remote starters here is the list of things to check

Hood Switch: Designed so the car wont start with the remote if your hood is opened. (If this goes bad your remote start will think the hood is open and wont start your car!)

Break Switch: It will shut the car off if someone pushes on the break without a key in the ignition so no one just drives off with your car.(if this is bad it could be reading that your brake peddle is being pushed without a key in the ignition)

And Finally The Time Out.: This is designed so if you start your car and forget about it, you dont use all your gas or let the car run all day, typically they shut off after 20 minutes.(Your timer is programed into the main control box, If your timer goes bad it can cause the whole remote system to fault.

Anyway hope this helps. Check your switches before you presume that the unit is shot!
