Well they don't come with a remote starter, and there is supposed to be a clutch pedal switch that prevents starting unless the clutch is depressed. (We did have one forum member that bypassed his.) Under what circumstances did it start on its own?

Could your be a little more specific - keys in the ignition? (while it Walgreens?) clutch pedal? in neutral? When you sitting in the car on the phone did you hear it cranking?

I'm thinking you've got a CTS, not a V. Perhaps this should go in the CTS section -- I'm sure the folks on that side have more experience with remote starters.

They might like to know what kind of remote starter you have, when and where it was installed, things like that. Good luck..

What aftermarket remote start do you have? How much is the dealer charging to fix a non factory issue?

Remote start on a V1 is not something I will be spending money on. Not a good idea in my opinion.
