Remote start won't start? Just honks or blinks lights at you?
If you have a remote start installed on your vehicle and it will not start, instead it would rather honk at you or flash the lights at you, don't get mad at it. Instead be patient, count how many times it honks or flashes at you because these actually mean something . It is communicating with you, trying to tell you its problems. In every user manual for every remote start I have ever installed (well over 1000) there is a section that tells you what is going on when this is happening. It will tell you for example on a Ford Bronze remote start that 6 honks means it is in valet mode.Look in the manual and it will tell you how to put it in valet mode and also how to take it out of valet mode.
Trust me, I have seen way too many people make an unnecessary trip to our dealership all because they never even pulled out the user manual that I put in their glove box after installing their remote start.
