Default Very odd

So I tried the remote start today and mysteriously it was working again...let's see how long it works.

What about leaving the battery disconnected over night for a complete reset?

Can you elaborate - is this different from disconnecting for ten minutes?

I would chalk it up to being a bug honestly. I have the same issue with my 2012 every now and again for no reason. Then it'll just work again as though nothing happened. Sometimes I've found that if you just start the car like normal, it'll fix the issue. It's also not consistent either. It just happens at random, and will seemingly resolve itself. Just a quirk of the vehicle. Least until someone is able to reproduce this same issue and fix it.

thanks for the reply - good to know that I am not alone - I have had the car five years and it is the first time this started happening

I am updating this thread for others and hopefully it will help someone later on...I have narrowed it down to the car believing the hood is open while it is not. There must be some kind of sensor - I opened the hood the other day to check the oil or something - after that it would not remote start again. I re-opened the hood and instead of dropping to close it, I pushed it down to close and the remote start worked.

someone locate the sensor so I can rig it to always on, and remote start with the hood open.
