Question about 1600XP Security/Remote Start System
If the parking lights are flashing when you attempt to start the vehicle, it is an visual notification to you as to the reason WHY it doesn't start.
Six flashes of the parking lights is (-) or (+) shutdown and seven flashes is neutral safety shutdown. These are the most common reasons for remote starter malfunction. The (-) shutdown relates to the hood pin switch. A malfunction in this area occurs when the hood pin switch fails to make contact with the hood when closed. Adjusting the pin or the bracket it may be attached to will solve the problem. The (+) shutdown relates to brake wire. Unless you have your foot on the brake while attempting to remote start, the issue could be with the brake switch or the wire making contact with 12 volts during remote start operation. The neutral safety shutdown relates to either the toggle switch or, if this is a new installation, the thin black with white stripe wire NOT being connected to ground. If your remote starter has worked before and, is not working now, the issue will be with the toggle switch. The toggle switch will be located (usually) under the dash near the left kick panel. The kick panel is where your left would rest when driving.
