Sounds like there is a problem with the remote start system, either the "brain box" for this system has gone bad, or someone connected it to the vehicle incorrectly

Why won't my 2008 Chrysler Aspen start?

You have 2 issue going on. Its not seeing a valid key,and it is starting with the remote.Your remote entry key did it happen to get wet? Or moisture get in? Lock the vehicle up using the key. enter the vehicle using the key fob.After the vehicle unlocks you have 60 seconds to enter the vehicle insert the key in the ignition start it up.Your remote start up is out of step.

No power to startet when key is turned check relays they r goood can put power to starter and it will crank any idear

will your car start if you put ignition key in run postion and then put remote power to the starter to crank engine? If it will you probably have an issue with the electrical portion of your ignition switch. Check to see if you have power to the high voltage side of your starter relays. If not check for a bad fuse. If so check to see if low side powers up when key is turned. If so it means you are gettintg current from the switch. So keep checking for power all the way to the starter. If not check and replace the ignition switch.

I have a 1996 BMW 318TI and when I turn ignition, the engine dosen't turn, but when i put a remote starter the engine turns, but no spark fire from spark. I need a solution to fix this quick!

Does the key have a alarm on it if it does youll need to replace the battery in the key.When the key is put in the transponder sends a signal to give spark and it does.then it starts. If you say the key doesnt have a alarm try this when the key is turn to the ACC position do you hear the pump. now if you crank it with the remote does the pump turn on? If yes you can do this go to the crank sensor pull on the harness(crank sensor has a tendency to get loose) does the crank move if it does youll need to tighten it up with the proper gap. if it doest solve it do this. close the door with the battery at a proper charge put the key in the door unlock it get in put the key in ignition now does it crank. If no you have a alarm problem.

Key Does not Work.

Ok, If it is the Factory Key, It should have the Plastic Finger grip at the Top. This Finger Grip has a Transponder Chip inside that Tells the Ignition that the Key is the Correct Key for this car, Go ahead and Start. These Transponders do Stop working Sometimes. If you will take the Key to the Dealer they can Reprogram the Key to work for you. But, It has to be the Factory key for this. If you have had a Key made, The key will not have the Chip inside it and will only work on the Doors. Please Rate my Response, I need all the Help That I can Get! Thanks!

1999 Chevy S-10, how can I bypass the Security Fuel shut off sytem?

the way that i was told how to do a quick fix for is to hold the key in the electrical start and the actual start up of the engine and hold it there tell the security light is solid and then turn off the truck then bring it back to that point and let it blink until it turns off then you can start the truck.
