Factory Remote Starter Issue
Just wanted to share some information regarding an issue with our factory remote starter. Hopefully this information will ease some minds and help those who might be having this problem now or in the future. That being said, if the remote starter is activated and for some reason the engine shuts off in about 5 seconds, be assured that there is nothing wrong with the remote starter...ONLY IF THE ENGINE LIGHT IS ON. It happened to me, my engine light turned on and couldn't use my remote start. it was explained to me by a Jeep technician yesterday that there was nothing wrong with it. Apparently, it's a safety precaution that is programmed into the on board computer. So, as long as the engine light is turned off, the remote start will work just fine. Hope this helps!
