Remote start sometimes doesn’t work

Recommended Posts

For some reason lately, the remote start will turn the engine over maybe once but not actually start it. When I get in and press the start button it starts fine.

 

Any ideas? I’m not sure why it never gives me an issue when I press the button, but occasionally acts up when using remote start.

My experience with this is low battery voltage.  Battery may be starting to get bad.  The remote start is more sensitive to battery voltage than starting it with start button.

I was somewhat thinking the same thing. I would hope the battery wouldn’t already be going bad. I just had it replaced over the summer.

Could be that you took some short trips and the battery didn't have enough time to get a good charge as well.
