Question about Prestige Remote Start

1 Answer

Bought a 2002 jetta that has a prestige remote start on it. it worked fine a few months. Today nothing works..it won't start, or even trigger the start sequence, and the door lock/unlock won't work. The remote still shows a green light every time i press a button so I don't think it's a battery issue. Any suggestions?

    Does the car start? Is there power if you turn the key to the ACC position?

There are two possiblities that could prove to be the fault; hood pin switch and remote start shutdown switch. If the vehicle is equipped with a hood shut down switch, you will need to make an adjustment to it for the remote starter to function. Search around the drivers side edges of the engine compartment for a push pin.If the pin is a stand alone it will be mounted near the headlight inserted into an existing hole. It may also be attached to a bracket. The remote start shutdown switch is a toggle switch located under the drivers side of the dash,usually to the left of the brake pedal, depending on the installation.

If nothing above solves the problem, you may need to reprogram the remote to the unit.

Won't start with the key? The issue is with the car. Won't REMOTE start, the issue may be with the hood pin switch (located under the hood) or, if it's an older system, the issue may be with a toggle switch under the dash.
