Hello, you are doing it correctly, press lock, then hold the start. If the vehicle is not responding, a scan tool is needed to be hooked up to vew data as this featur is computer controlled and involves computers and several different circuits

RVS functions have an operating range of up to 59 m (195 ft) depending on conditions. The RVS sequence begins by pressing and releasing the lock button and then pressing and holding the RVS buttons on the keyless entry transmitter. The turn signal lamps will illuminate to indicate the vehicle has received the remote start request. Each time an RVS is performed the vehicle doors are locked; however they may then be unlocked/locked with the transmitter or vehicle key at any time. Once activated the engine is allowed to run for 10 minutes. The RVS time may be extended by an additional 10 minutes by again pressing and releasing the lock button and then pressing and holding the RVS buttons on the transmitter. This feature is called an RVS continue and allows a maximum of 20 minutes of engine running.


The RVS System WILL NOT operate if any of the following conditions are present:

^ A current vehicle DTC that illuminates the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) is set - obtain vehicle DTCs.
^ Keyless Entry Transmitter is not Operational.
^ The vehicle is in Valet Mode.
^ RVS is Disabled through Vehicle Personalization.
^ More than 2 Remote Starts have been attempted.
^ The HAZARD switch is in the ON position.

^ A current HOOD AJAR DTC is set.
^ Rear compartment lid is ajar.
^ Any Door is not locked.
^ The Content Theft Deterrent (CTD) system detects an alarm trigger.
^ Engine RPM greater than 0 Detected.
^ Excessive Coolant TEMP is registered.
^ Accelerator pedal position greater than 0 percent.
^ Vehicle is not in PARK.
^ A current Vehicle Theft Deterrent Malfunction DTC.
^ A current Automatic Transmission Shift Lock Control System DTC is set.
^ A vehicle speed sensor signal is detected by the ECM.
