View Full Version : remote start problem

02-06-2004, 03:14 PM
I've had my remote start installed in my car for almost 2 years and has worked flawlessly. Yesterday when I went to start my car with the remote, it started fine, ran for about 5 seconds, and shut off. I tried it again several times and it does the same thing. I'm sure a connection somewhere has come loose, I just can't find it. Anybody have an easy and simple solution that I'm overlooking?

ahhh sounds exactly like the problem I had. when it was installed they tapped into a wire near the coil pack to pickup the rpm pulse. well they used a cheap tap instead of solder so eventually it worked its way loose and did the same thing as yours. check for a connection over there. try wiggling it and see if anything happens.
