Hello,I will be glad to try and assist you with this,Welcome to Just Answer.

 

I just need a little more info to be able to assist better,

 

When you use the ignition key to start the car does it start then stall out every time?

 

Are you also saying the transmitter isnt working to lock/unlock the doors,are both transmitters acting like this?

 

Let me know,Thanks Pete.

Auto Mechanic: Pete, Technician replied 8 years ago

does this vehicle have remote start and if so is it an aftermarket remote start?

 

(Meaning that you push a button on the remote to start the car)

 

Is this where the problem are is?

 

Does the vehicle start and stay running with the key that you insert into the ignition hole to start the car?

 

Let me know,Thanks Pete.
