Troubleshooting
15. NOTE: When attempting to remote start your
vehicle, the system has several safety checks
that it performs. If any of these inputs are
present that should not be, the system will
respond back to you with several horn ‘‘chirps’’
to help you identify which input is present.
These ‘‘chirps’’ will occur after initiating a start
sequence with the transmitter, the system will
turn on the ignition, but then respond back with
several horn ‘‘chirps’’ and abort the starting
process.
Example: Depress the remote start fob button
for 3 seconds and then release. The vehicle
horn will ‘‘chirp’’ one time to indicate that
RMST signal was received. If the vehicle
doesn’t start and the horn ‘‘chirps’’ 3 times,
there is a fault - ‘‘Vehicle Door is Open’’
10. Close the door.

that it performs. If any of these inputs are
present that should not be, the system will
respond back to you with several horn ‘‘chirps’’
to help you identify which input is present.
These ‘‘chirps’’ will occur after initiating a start
sequence with the transmitter, the system will
turn on the ignition, but then respond back with
several horn ‘‘chirps’’ and abort the starting
process.
Example:Depress the remote start fob button
for 3 seconds and then release. The vehicle
horn will ‘‘chirp’’ one time to indicate that
RMST signal was received. If the vehicle
doesn’t start and the horn ‘‘chirps’’ 3 times,
there is a fault - ‘‘Vehicle Door is Open’’

NOTE: For remote start troubleshooting guide click
here.
1.
Make sure all doors are closed but hood is open
and windows are down (doors will be locking).
2.
Press and hold the Start button on the remote
control key fob for 2-3 seconds - Horn should
honk once indicating receipt of the start request.
3.
The remote start systems should turn on the
ignition, but then honk the horn twice and shut
down indicating the hood is open.
14. Once all systems have been checked, press the
brake pedal - the remote start systems should
shut down.
Troubleshooting
15. NOTE: When attempting to remote start your
vehicle, the system has several safety checks
that it performs. If any of these inputs are
present that should not be, the system will
respond back to you with several horn ‘‘chirps’’
to help you identify which input is present.
These ‘‘chirps’’ will occur after initiating a start
sequence with the transmitter, the system will
turn on the ignition, but then respond back with
several horn ‘‘chirps’’ and abort the starting
process.
Example:Depress the remote start fob button
for 3 seconds and then release. The vehicle
horn will ‘‘chirp’’ one time to indicate that
RMST signal was received. If the vehicle
doesn’t start and the horn ‘‘chirps’’ 3 times,
there is a fault - ‘‘Vehicle Door is Open’’
4.
Close the hood, and insert a key into the
ignition switch.
5.
Attempt to re-start the vehicle again using the
key fob.
6.
The remote start systems should turn on the
ignition, but then honk the horn five times and
shut down indicating a key is in the ignition
switch.
