does check engine light disable remote start?

I have had a check engine light on for a couple of days (code p204f if anyone can give me more info on that). I have tried remote start twice since the CEL came on. Both times the jeep started, ran for a couple of seconds, then shut off.

p204f seems to relate to the DEF and I see you have a diesel. Many diesel forums noting DEF issues.

Get an OBDII scanner, note the code then erase it. You will be able to use the remote start then. Keep in mind that if the dealer doesn't see the code, then the problem doesn't exist. Just an FYI.
