Remote Start Stopped Working

I saw on the forum that Helmet had a problem with his remote start that stopped working on his 2010 about a year ago that doesn't seem to have ever been resolved. Last night my alarm apparently was going off most of the night and the neighbors called the cops.

I did not know this before I left for work. I did notice that my remote start did not work this morning. The same issue that Helmet had, the lights flashed once and it won't start. I unlocked the doors with the remote, started my car with the key and drove to work. Halfway to work I noticed the hood was not fully latched down. I closed it when I got to work.

Then my fiance texted me and told about the car alarm. I don't know what went on or why my hood was unlatched. Nothing is damaged or missing in my car.

I just went out and made sure all the doors lock with the remote. I also went through the menu making sure the remote start is on. The headlights still just flash once and it does not start.

Any suggestions?

Are you sure someone didn't react to your alarm issue and do something to your wiring? Seems kind of a strange coincidence...JMO...

That's what I thought but I checked under the hood and didn't notice anything. Something weird is going on.

No check engine light, no other issues that I can see.

Do you have a code reader that reads pending or history codes?

Yes but I think it is back in Michigan right now. I am in Boston now and still trying to sell my old house. I am going to go back and get everything when I sell the house.

I've been thinking about this and I don't know everything that happened last night. If the alarm was going off and someone called the police could the police have done something to shut it off? Is there a way to open the hood without pulling the lever inside?

You might need to pull connectors off of BCM and work them a little bit. Disconnect battery first though. You probably have a bad contact. When you start your car do you have a message on the DIC? We know your remotes are good because the lights flash when you hold the start button.
