Your Vehicle requires a ByPass Module to allow the Vehicle to Start
Be sure you use the AL-1860-EDPB to Lock & Unlock the Vehicle, as using the Factory Remotes or Locking "Manually" can cause a "PassLock" problem to keep the vehicle from starting.

.

REmOTE START DiAGnOSTiCS;

The remote start system can indicate which zone caused the last remote start cycle to end
To see this indicator, place the system into alarm valet mode
Immediately after the chirp, the status light will flash to indicate which zone violation occured.
1 FLASh: Run time expired
2 FLAShES: Brake pedal was pressed or the hood was opened
3 FLAShES: Engine stalled or a bad tach signal
4 FLAShES: Received transmitter command to stop
5 FLAShES: The neutral safety circuit was triggered
6 FLAShES: The alarm was triggered or low battery voltage
.

IF none of the above helps, you need to have the Installer go over their Settings to be sure ALL modes are covered
