I don't have a solution, but I have a variation of this problem... My remote start will start the vehicle (2004 GMC Yukon) then shut it right back off after less than 1 second. But, ONLY when it's cold. Once the truck warms up, the remote start works fine. The "start fail" code says "Engine over revving"... Which is odd, because the engine idles the same cold or warm - around 1100 to 1400 at start, then down to about 800 after just a few seconds. Par for the course for me - no one has ever seen this problem before. I was told by a friend not to install an aftermarket remote start on a GMC Yukon, as they are nothing but trouble, but I didn't listen.

SOURCE: 99 gmc sierra 1500, basic bulldog remote start

No i dont think you need that by-pass part for it to work correctly. Go to the bulldog website and look up your vehicle,wiring color code and required equip. also should have some install photos. I would get ahold of your mechanic and have him resolve the issue being he installed it.

SOURCE: Pres remote starter Model APS-901, the remote will

PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE POST BEFORE BEGINNING

There are several reasons that could cause the remote starter to shutdown immediately after it starts:

1. It may be the lack of a tachometer signal. Did you hook up the green/orange wire to a uncommon wire at a coil or fuel injector? If not, did you program the remote starter for tachless? If you didn't hook up the tach wire, no problem; let's program the remote starter for tachless:
Turn ignition on, press and release programming switch three times. The parking lights will flash one time. Turn key off, then on, then off, then on. You are now in bank three (remote starter programming). Press and release the programming button five times. The parking lights will flash the number of the times for the setting for this feature. If you have not attempted to progarm the unit, it will flash two times (default setting is for TACH). Press and release the start button on the remote once, it will flash three times; press and release the start button again, it will flash once. The unit is now programmed for voltage. Turn the key off. If you have not attempted to do any programming on the unit, the default setting for crank averaging is AVERAGING. This means that you will have to start the vehicle at least four times with the key to be effective. Test the system.

If the problem still exists, let's try this:
2. If you did not hook up the tach wire and you already had the unit programmed for voltage and, the remote starter shuts down (probably when the parking lights come on); the 901 is seeing a drop in voltage and you need to hook up the tach wire. Connect the green/orange wire to an uncommon wire at a fuel injector or coil. An uncommon wire is one that is a different color, at the same pin location, on each coil or injector. For example; compare two fuel injectors: if they are two pin connectors you may see an orange and a pink. At the next injector you may see an orange and a blue. The orange is the common wire and the pink and the blue are uncommon wires. You may connect the green/orange to either one of the uncommon wires. After the wire is connected, turn the ignition on, press and release the programming button three times. The parking kights flash once. Turn the key off. Press and HOLD the programming button, start the vehicle. The parking lights will begin to flash, continue to hold programming button for approximately 15 second. Release the programming button, the parking lights will come on then, go off. The tach is now programmed. Turn vehicle off. Refer to the above section for remote starter programming features in bank three. Test system.
Remember: If you did hook up the tach wire there is no need to program the 901 for tach. Tach is the default setting.

3. If the remote starter still continues to shut down, the problem may be with your need for an immobilizer bypass. You failed to mention the year/make/model of the vehicle so, try inserting the key into the ignition then, remote start the vehicle. If the vehicle starts and runs, you will need to bypass the "chip" in the key for the remote starter to function as desired.

#1 reason for a no start on the chevy trucks is a bad fuel pump, try spraying some carb clean into the throttle body, just a few squirts, and see if the truck tries to start! Q: is the vehicle cranking over? If its not even cranking over then you may have a battery issue..

starting definately has a lot to do with the crank/cam position sensors, but it wouldnt have nothing to do with hot or cold weather, oxygen sensor will make the vehicle run too rich if its out, you will smell fuel very strong out the exhaust, that could make it run sluggish also, and usually if the mass air flow sensor goes out the vehicle wont start at all...

2000 GMC Sierra cranks wont start


Hello, 9-10 volts is not enough to keep a modern vehicle running. Taking in consideration the age and model of this truck, it could easily be an alternator failure.
I hope this helps.
