I would contact GM, there is an ignition recall on many of their vehicles. If you have not had it done, that is where I would start.

My remote start on my 2005 Grand Prix will start the engine but shuts off right away.

well about GMC and chevrolet i can say that if there is any problem with the engine/the engine light is ON then the vehicle wont start, just an idea that may be there is the same reason with your car.

Astrostart My vehicle only starts when I am about 50 feet away,,not even

Check the battery in your remote, it may be getting weak.
Also AUTOSTART claims that the 1000FT is based on line of sight, unobstructed testing in ideal conditions. Actual range will vary due to local conditions including but not limited to environment, terrain, physical obstructions, vehicle location and orientation, interference and other possible impediments.
Try driving out to a place that is flat and open in all directions. Walk up to 1000 feet away, and try every 100ft as you walk back to see when it will start.
If you have a building, wall, or other object between your remote and the vehicle the signal may not be reaching the antenna on the vehicle.

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.

Made a small thump under my feet when i tried

this sounds like the starter grenaded. Look under the vehicle for the starter and if the solenoid itself had come apart, it would act like a dead battery. Let me know what you find.

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

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...
