It depends on many things - mostly the range of the system itself and especially where you located the remote antenna. Some installers don't use the antenna and that will limit range severely. Most manufacturers want the antenna routed up the windshield pillar and mounted near the top of the windshield glass. This gives best reception since glass does not hinder the RF signal. OF course, a weak battery in the remote can cause range issues as well.

Check the hood pin switch. It's located under the hood around the edge of the engine compartment. It's designed to make contact with the hood when the hood is closed. Also, check for a remote start shutdown toggle switch under the dash.

Cars rpms goes extremely high, have to shut off engine unhook battery to reset computer, remote start, then works ok for a while. I noticed the problem more often if temps out side are extremely cold. ...

The problem you have described do not sound remote start related. A remote start unit does not have the ability to alter the RPM. The remote start system only replicates the process of turning on the ignition, starting the engine and keeping it running for a predetermined length of time.
The heater temperature problem should not be remote starter related either.
As for the day time running lights, although rare, if wired inproperly there is the possibility that the remote starter has caused it to fail. This will have to be determined by a qualified technician.
