Upon pressing the two buttons to remote start my truck, the solenoid engages the starter motor and the engine starts but shut down after one second of running and repeats the process two more times. the left parking light stays on also.
Have this problem also. Took new vehicle (5009.2 miles) to dealer. They suggest that something in the control module tends to stick causing the battery to drain and that it is not an uncommon problem that they see. We had single digit temperatures here when the problem occured. It got up to 20 yesterday and everything works well again.

It is possible that you need to reprogram the remote.
1st you need to enter the remote into programming... Hold the Function button until the remote gives a long beep and LED light comes on the remote a (it takes about 8 sec.) Then press and hold the remote start buttom until the remote beeps 3 times and LED lights up. Now your ready to program the remote
One of the door has to be open . Insert the key - turn the key to the On position then press the button on the antenna once and then press it again and hold it
You hear a chirp and then you press the lock button on the remote and then you hear a second chirp to receive confirmation and then release the button and the turn off the key .
It sounds like there's no power going to the starter wire. Try and locate the brain under the dash for the remote start. It should be black and about twice the size of a deck of cards with a few harnesses hanging out of it. Usually it is zip-tied to a wire harness or bracket to keep it secure and from falling down onto your feet. There should be several wires much larger than the others, and you should see fuseholders on the 2 red ones. Usually one of the fuses is used solely for the starter. Check both fuses on these larger wires. Should be 30 amp green ones if I remember right. Also, while you have the brain accessible, write down the model number on the brain itself to help you in the future. Most DEI remotes can be used for almost any DEI/Viper/Your Valet system, so it's really hard to tell what you have just by looking at the remote. If the fuses are fine, you may need to take it to a shop (anyone that sells Viper and such). If you have a chip in your ignition key, it may also be the security bypass module that gets installed with the remote start. You will only have this bypass module if you have the little chip in your ignition key. Hope this helps, good luck.
Whoever hooked up your system did not hook up the factory alarm disarm and arm wires. Your car thinks it is being stolen as a result of this. You need to get a wire diagram of your car and hook up the proper wires.
