Intermittent Remote Start Problem

On my 2015 about 30% of the time I need to push the remote start button a second time to get it to start. So I push it twice and nothing happens, then two more times and it starts. This is my fifth Ram/Jeep with remote starts and have never had a problem like this with any of my other Jeeps/Trucks. And of course the dealer has no idea what's wrong......I also have three fobs and they all fail to work from time to time.......Anyone else ever have this problem and did you get it resolved?

Re: Intermittent Remote Start Problem

Remote start gets erratic when the fob battery gets weak. Are the batteries in all of your fobs about the same age? Put new batteries in both of my fobs solved my problem. They were 3 years old when I had the problem.

Intermittent Remote Start Problem

Maybe it's on the receiving end. My GC does it sometimes soon so I always hit the lock button a few times first to 'wake it up'
