Hello.... sorry to hear you are having a problem. It sounds as if the system may be in valet mode. A lot of remote start systems have a feature like this to keep the car from starting. You can turn this mode on when you are having your vehicle serviced and it keeps the car from accidentally starting when a mechanic is working on the engine. It will still allow you to use the lock features but not the starter. If you will let me know the make and model of the system you are using I can research this for you. Also the make, model and year of the vehicle would be helpful as well. Hope this helps!

The drivers side cook lock does not lock or unlock using the remote. The other door do respond to the remote. What is the cause and solution?


Hi Charles

The drivers side door gets the most use
Check the actuator wiring coming through the door hinge
If it works from the key then the Power to the door is OK & the key switch is ok. Must be trigger wire from wireless device receiver!

Good Luck

Alarm keeps turning on when I turn on my car starter


Okay, the Avital 4111 is a one button remote starter. So, it has no way of locking your car doors except if wired to lock after start or, after shut down. In the 2010 CRV, the unit should have been wired to disarm the alarm before start(brown wire in kick panel) and to unlock doors when running (grey wire in kick panel in same harness as disarm) with the press and release of the remote starter remote. If the unit is not working in cold weather it may be due to the installer using a valet key instead of a bypass and/or the unit may be programmed for virtual tachometer or voltage instead of having a true tachometer wire connected.

Remote start work but door will not unlock or lock!


Do the doors unlock when the remote starter is not running? If so, then you to connect to a different set of door lock wires.I usually connect to the factory alarm and disarm wires in the driver kick panel. They are blue for arm and pink for disarm. You test them by turning the key in the drivers door.

We have a 2007 Entourage and you cannot lock it with the car running. We installed a remote starter and it will not lock the doors when it is remotely started. Can this feature be disabled?


i think that this is to prevent you from locking your keys in the car with the engine running.
Some remote starters have a feature that when the car is running (and in park) you can hit the remote start button twice for one second each - then you can take the key out of the ignition and still have the car running.
At this point....if you would hit the 'lock' button on your door the doors would immediately unlock. However, if you get out of the car and close the door leaving it unlocked and then you hit the 'lock' on your original car remote the doors will lock and stay locked. So now the car is running the doors are locked and you have the keys in your hands. Then you can run into the store or house real quick with your car locked.
Once you come back, you hit 'unlock' on the original car remote. the doors will unlock - you can get it - and then before hitting the brake put the key in the ignition and turn it (dont crank it) as if you had when originally using the remote starter.
Maybe this will work for you.....
