#1 of 3 Remote Start erratic
Apr 26, 2011 (10:39 am)
With my remote, I can control the lock, unlock and power liftgate funtions from anwhere in the house, and from a long distance away. The remote start, however, will not work from inside the house, only ten feet from the car (all other functions work, tho). I can be outside, more than 150' feet away with a clear view of the car, and the remote start will work flawlessly. It's the only function on the remote control that doesn't like walls.

Can somebody explain the attraction of remote start?
Seems to me it could present a significant hazard if the vehicle was started unintentionally.

When I asked the salesman the same question, the reply was three-part:
1. The engine will only run for 10 minutes.
2. The car can't be put into gear until the key is turned in the ignition.
3. It takes a two-button sequence to initiate remote start.
