Question about Prestige Remote Start

1 Answer

Starter isn't working

I have everything hooked up, minus the trunk and door lock features as they are already on my factory remote,but the starter still doesn't work. I had a shop tell me I need to purchase another module bypass. Is this true, or are they trying to sell me something?

    I have checked all the fuses and safety switches with volt meters. All are working as they should be, the system is getting power, but it just is not starting the vehicle. I have programmed and reprogrammed several times as well.

Immobilizer Systems are common in most vehicles today. That's remote starters should be installed professional installers. What's the year, make and model of your vehicle?

Check the hood pin switch. It's located under the hood around the edge of the engine compartment. It's designed to make contact with the hood when the hood is closed. Also, check for a remote start shutdown toggle switch under the dash.

It is a common problem with factory remote keyless entry (RKE) systems when a remote start system is installed. Many RKEs will not operate when the ignition is powered as the case when engine is running under the control of the remote starter. There is no easy solution to get around this safety feature if you insist on using the factory remote to operate the door locks. The best option is to use the MARS-22 to control you door locks.

there is no solution to this, it is factory setup to prevent you from locking your keys in the car when it's running and so the trunk can not be opened by accident

Remote starter does not work but will unlock and lock doors.

depending on your alarm which it sounds like a viper model maybe? on my 02 you have to incorporate a factory alarm bypass module in order to be able to start the truck, they run about 100.00 bucks and have to be profssionally installed. The truck wont start because the computer isnt recieving the proper starting sequence due to the factory alarm
