2008 Enclave did come with Factory Remote Start, but sometimes the Dealer has Aftermarket Installed prior to selling.
Please compare your Remote with the Picture I provided (Click Attachment Below)
IF your Remote looks like that, then when you start your vehicle with the Key, is the Security Light ON or Blinking?
It will be a small picture of a vehicle & Lock together blinking or on steady
Please let me know
