Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.In order to be able to try and help you we need a bit more information. When you say the engine shut off and will not turn on are you saying it dies and not will not crank over or dose it crank over and not start. Did you install a remote start? Please explain with complete details and we can work from there.

It has a remote starter mad by automate. The remote starter does not have a valet switch, which i thought might be the problem. It will not crank at all. The battery is not dead, the lights turn on.

I would still check the battery to make sure its fully charged and the connections are clean and tight. If that checks okay then I would suspect the problem is with the add on start system.

Hey I'm with my car. I tested the fuses. And 1 didn't work that was connected to the remote starter box. I switched it out and still nothing.
Expert:  Ron replied 1 year ago.
When you switch it out did you make sure you have power in and out of it? Are you 100% sure the battery is fully charged?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I've even tried jump starting it.
Expert:  Ron replied 1 year ago.
Well at this point I would suspect the problem is with your add on remote start system and unfortunately I do not have any information on this one. If you would like, I can open the post back up and perhaps someone else may have information on it that could help you.
