Prestige APS2K4SAW LED constantly on, remote start not working

My remote start used to work great for a long time, then I noticed that the LED is constantly on and the buttons stopped working. I replaced the battery and the remote start work again I assumed this fixed the problem but the led light is still on, then the next morning the remote would not start the car and the batter is brand new from the night before. Could the FOB be stuck in valet if thats possible? or what does the led being on constantly mean?

    Ive had no work done to this car in regards to the remote start or anything that would need someone to mess with any system involved. the remote start worked when a new battery was placed in the KEY FOB then over night, im not sure what changed but the LED did not shut off on the fob and the car wouldnt start but it did the night before when the battery was replaced.

    The remote has an internal short on the microprocessor IC chip, it could also be corrosion on the board but I have seen these remotes short out when I used to install these years ago, it will kill the battery overnight

SOURCE: prestige aps-57 remote won't start

Hello hope this can help you. First check the starter wire, it is tan/lt blue located at the ignition harness. usualy during installation of the remote start system this wire is cut leaving you with two ends. one wire is coming from the ignition switch the other is going to the starter. the brain of the alarm hooks into both of these wires. if the repair man cut the wires from the brain and spliced them together he has just put the system back to OEM status leaving the alarm no way to engage the starter. I believe that may be where the problem lies but if not then I would say check your immobilizer bypass module the repair man mave have diconected that.

Thank you,

Sounds like you may have a smart key with a transponder. The car will crank with a differant key but will not start because fuel and spark are dissabled. A new key is required and it must be coded to the vehicle by the deaker or a professional with the appropriate software. Then then a copy of the key is usually placed in a 555 box that is located close to the ignition switch so the transponder will still work. So basically you will need two keys made and coded.

I bought my car used with an aftermarket prestige alarm w/ remote start. Battery and alternator went bad. They have been replaced. The car will not turn on and alarm remote is not working.

Locate a black push button switch under the dash or near the drivers side kick panel (older model), or the alarm has a push button LED light(newer model) or the Valet switch is in the antenna(newest model). Turn the ignition on, press and release the switch one time. This should disarm the alarm.

For programming: turn ignition on, press and release the valet switch three times: you will hear one chirp from the alarm, press the lock button on the remote. Press and release the valet one time, you will hear two chirps from the alarm, press the unlock button on the remote. Repeat as necessary. Turn igniton off to exit programming. Test remote for proper functioning.

If the LED is flashing rapidly when the button on the remote is not pressed you have interference from something. Check for old remotes stored in a drawer somewhere or some new electric item nearby. Start unplugging things until that rapid flashing stops.

You did not mention the year/make/model of your vehicle but, the issue appears to be the factory alarm. The installer failed to make the connection. If you intend to make the connection yourself I would need information pertaining to the vehicle. The (-) pulse before start wire for Prestige remote starters is black with a blue stripe. It is in a 4 pin connector at the module. This wire can be used to disarm the factory alarm before the remote start sequence.
