Try disconnecting your negative battery terminal for 30 minutes to reset your computer. This may clear the code and allow you to use the remote start.

Otherwise, you will need to hook it up to a high end scan tool to see what the stored code is.

Not much help but I have noticed that my remote start doesn't want to work properly if my CEL is on. (Mine is currently on due to the egr valve needing replaced). So it very well has something to do with it. Ty resetting the CEL like stated above and see if that helps. At least gives you somewhere to start.

If the check engine light is on, there is a code in the system. See what it is. The remote start is disabled because of this.

Remote start wont work with cel or low fuel light on, you'll have to have it checked and reset/fix
