Valet 473T remote

Bought car with this remote in it. You can lock and unlock car, push car start button. Car will try to start 3 times, without success. The dealer replaced the car battery, would this have kicked out the command to start the car, or is it maybe in a service mode so when they did work on it the car wouldn't start accidental.

Re: Valet 473T remote

It sounds like the system needs tach sensor reprogramming. The remote start system may have a tachometer sensing mode where the system "knows" that the car is running and to stop cranking the starter when when the engine is running. Generally when the vehicles battery is disconnected the system "forgets" the setting of the tachometer at idle which is programmed at the time if installation. Take it to a remote start installation store for this or get a hold of a maual for your system and shouldnt be too dificult to program.

The doors lock when I start the car - I don't want that!

the unit can be programmed to lock the doors after starting, to make it leave it alone you have to enter the programming(ignition on, press the valet switch 5 times within 5 seconds, the lights will flash 3 times to signal you have entered programming, then press valet switch 10 times(lock after start setting) within 5 seconds hit the unlock button on the remote (button closest to the side with the other buttons)
then turn off the ignition to save the settings and it should be done

manual for the system is found at under the download section

Remote does not open garage door

It sounds like the wall button has the lock feature engauged.

Is there a small green LED flashing inside the wall button?
Push and hold the lock button for about two seconds and the LED should stop flashing. This will unlock the garage door opener and your remotes should start working. You may have to reprogram your remotes and homelink again since you triedprograming in the lock mode.

Good luck.

4. Within 5 seconds, press the transmitter button corresponding to the desired time ( left button 15 min, right button 25 min)

Need help

under the dash there should be 1 or 2 red wires going into the the 477T, take the fuse out of the holder and try to start your car with the key, if it still doesn't start there might be a start kill relay hooked to the starter look for a small black cube with 4 wires going into it, it will be hooked to your starter wire, if you use a jumper wire and hook it to pin 30 and 87 it will bypass the relay and your car should start
