Remote Start Issue.

Every time I try to use my remote start it starts, runs for about 5 seconds then just shuts off for no apparent reason. Anyone else have this issue?

Nope had at least half a tank or more. There is one thing I need to check myself before I bring it to the dealer. I have a ported stock intake manifold and throttle body and since porting the intake manifold I have an "idle RPM higher than expected" DTC. I clear it and it comes back within a day or so of driving. I need to clear it and then try the remote start. Not sure how an idle RPM code would interfere with the remote start but stranger things have happened.


Edit: just reset the ECM to erase the code still fires up runs for a few seconds then turns off.

Re: Remote Start Issue.

From the manual "If an engine fault is present or fuel level is low, the vehicle will start and then shutdown in 10 seconds." Idle RPM higher than expected would be viewed as a system fault.
