did you own vehicle from new, and is there an after market alarm or remote start under the dash, if there is it would have to be removed to diagnose it further
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
bought it new and yes it does have after market remote starter, by remove do you mean remove the power lead from the fuse box?
Expert:  fordtechsuzukitech25 replied 2 years ago.
i mean the entire thing needs to come out and any wires that were altered need to be put back to factory
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
ok ill remove it do you think this may be the cause or is this just a step towards a diagnosis
