Remote start not working

Nothing happens after locking the doors and pressing the remote start. New truck to me, so not sure when it worked last. Where to start looking?

First check to see if the truck mounted switch mounted somewhere on your dash is ''on''. Then check the batteries on your remote control.

This is a factory remote start, so I did not think there was a dash mounted switch. Correct me if I am wrong. Batteries in key fob are good.

That I wouldn't know but I'm sure your owner's manual could tell you.There might even be a fuse for it also.

Most common issue is that there is a code thrown. Have it checked to see if any codes have tripped.

You have to push the lock button 2x then start button. When I got my truck it took me a while to figure that out. If your check engine light is on it will also not start with remote.

1. Scroll through the DIC(using the 3rd button down from the top, or 3rd button over from the left....depending on how your truck is configured), and once you get to the remote start option, make sure that is on.

2. Check for a CEL on the dash. There could also be a code stored in the ECM without having the CEL on, but I don't think that will cause it not to work.

No it doesn't, press lock once, then hold the start button until it starts.

ryanryan, maybe I have a problem with mine also, mine WILL NOT start after pushing lock one time, push it 2x, starts every time! The dealer is the one who told me that. Well sorry man, it worked for me, mine must be different.

Checked and there is no stored codes. Is there a relay that could be bad?
