Have a 2001 Yukon with factory remote start, recently

Customer Question

hi, have a 2001 Yukon with factory remote start, recently started having problem with the remote start, hit lock button twice to start, engine cranks, runs for 1/2 second then dies, after 10 seconds it retries to start with same results. If I unlock door and try with key still will not start until I hit brake pedal and disengage remote start then I can start engine successfully, manually with key. Wife's pissed, cannot pre-cool off truck in this heat. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi there, I am Cam. Are you certain of the year? I ask because factory remote starters were not installed till 2007.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Thats funny, because when I bought this yukon 7 months ago, only had 1 remote which failed, went to local GM dealer to get new remotes, when he informed me i had to get all numbers off of keyless remote reciever, located under dash, behind instrument cluster, which I removed and took pictures of and returned to GM and he was able to order me new remotes. I have included the photos to show you so you can see for yourself. With that out of the way, is there any help you can give me or did I just pay $26 for your respone? Thank you.

I am not sure what that is. It looks like a GM part number. I am truly baffled as to what it is then. I will open this up to allow other experts to review it. They will get back to you.

sorry for the delay............
Greetings...... “Hi, I’m Don (aka MOLurch) and I look forward to helping you!”

That is NOT a GM Remote Start.......
I can see the "add on Remote Start" below the Steering Column, wire tied to the dash
Also the Aftermarket wireing to the left......RED = Battery......VIOLET = Starter........PINK = Ignition, etc
If you would like more info, please be up front & I will not respond to anyone being rude......
Let me know if we can proceed
