Question Remote start not working - any thoughts/experience?

I have a 2012 with the factory remote start and just recently I noticed that the remote start is no longer working. All the items listed in the manual which could be causes for the malfunction are not present.

When I try to remote start the car as usual (done it a thousand times) the parking lights flash when you hit the start button and then nothing happens after that.

Car is 100% otherwise.

I tried disconnecting the battery for a few minutes but to no avail.

I am wondering if anybody else had this happen and what the fix was? Thanks in advance.

Yes, I even re-opened and closed again.

Yes it does that, also the parking lights light up when you hit the start button, after that it doesn't attempt to start the car at all.

I even went and reclosed all doors/hood and used my scanner to "erase" codes in the computer (although none were present) and still no luck...
