    2012 CTS-V Wagon - Remote Start Questions

    Is there any reason why the remote start would not work today for me? It worked this morning and earlier today for me. However when I tried to do it just a few minutes ago, the car would not start. I even made sure to lock the car first before trying to hit the remote start button. I then hit the remote start button twice like you are supposed to do, and all the car did was blink the turn signals in the head light twice and that is all it did. Any suggestions?

    I hit the lock, and then the start button once and hold until it fires. I've never had to hit mine twice.

    Are you low on fuel?

    +1. I hold the button down until the lights blink and it fires.

    Read the manual, there is no problem. The issue is that you can only remote start the vehicle two times before you have to actually start the car inside of the car. It won't let you try and remote start it more than 2 times.

    I think all GM's require hitting lock button, then push and hold in the remote start button until it fires (actually until the lights blink, I think). I don't think you are supposed to hit the remote start button twice.

    Never had a problem with the suburban. My CTS-V is a manual, so no remote start. If there is any drawback to the manual trans. (for me, that is), the lack of remote start is it......it's the greatest feature ever for hot summer days and cold winter days......

    You can get an aftermarket remote start for the manual trans cars if you want.

    Also if you happen to have a check engine light ON or if the hood is open the remote start will not work.

    You can only remote start 2 times before you have to use the ignition key to start.

    Each remote start only lasts for 10 minutes and then shuts off.

    If your getting near the end of the first 10 minute time interval and want to run the car longer you can push your lock button and remote start button again while the car is running and it will continue for another 10 minutes from that point. After that you have to use the ignition again.

    Re: 2012 CTS-V Wagon - Remote Start Questions

    This info should be in your owners manual. This is straight out of the STS/STS-V manual. It's probably the same for you guys:

    "The remote start feature will not operate if any of the following occur:
    • The check engine light is displayed. See “Check Engine Light” under Malfunction Indicator Lamp on page 252.
    • The valet lockout switch is on.
    • The keyless access transmitter is in the vehicle.
    • The vehicle’s hood is open.
    • The vehicle personalization feature is not enabled.
    • An unauthorized vehicle entry or a vehicle theft was attempted."

    Also looking through the forums I've learned that if a fob is not programmed as either driver 1 or driver 2 it won't start the car.

    Ok just did a bit of research. I guess that's a difference. Cts doesn't have valet mode. Ignore that one. My bad.
