Auto Start not starting

#1

I have a Ford Ranger with a remote start. Recently it will not start when I push the start button. It will lock the doors and the fuel pump will whine, but the vehicle will not turn over. Any ideas???


#2

How’s the battery? Does it start conventionally, with the key?


#3

Yes, the truck starts right up with the key, but sometimes after I use the remote start there is nothing, no click, co lights on the dash. This is very infrequent, and it usually only happens the 1st or 2nd time I try to start the truck. After that it works fine with the key

Hundreds of parameters here.
A tech will need to check.

Do you have a door ajar warning showing even though the doors are closed ?

The computer runs a system check each time and just one bad indicator will stop the cycle.

Is it a Ford system or another brand?
Techs will call 1-800-FORDKEY for tech help. maybe they’ll speak to you too.
( all Ford remote start kits are added on and made by Code Systems inc aka Power Code )

Otherwise call the number in your remote start user manual.
