When I us my remote start and get in the car, it will not come out of park. The lights on the dash are not lit either. What use is it. Am I doing something wrong?

Just step on the brake, and press the Go button (pretend to start the engine normally).

(Remote Start): To start the vehicle using the
remote start feature, do the following:
1. Aim the remote keyless access transmitter at
the vehicle.
2. Press the transmitter’s lock button, release it and
then immediately press and hold the transmitter’s
remote start button for at least two seconds or until
the vehicle’s turn signal lamps flash. The vehicle’s
doors will be locked.
3. When the vehicle starts, the parking lamps will turn
on and remain on while the vehicle is running.
4. Repeat steps 1 and 2 while the engine is still
running to add 10 minutes of engine running.
If the vehicle is left running it will automatically shut off
after 10 minutes unless a time extension has been
done. To manually shut off a remote start, do any of
the following:
• Aim the Keyless Access transmitter at the vehicle
and press the remote start button until the parking
lamps turn off.
• Turn on the hazard warning flashers.
• Press the OFF/ACC button on the ignition switch.
See Ignition Positions on page 2-23.
• Turn on the valet lockout switch. See Valet Lockout
Switch on page 2-22
When you enter the vehicle during a remote start,
depress the brake pedal and press the start button on
the keyless ignition switch to transition from remote start
operation to normal vehicle operation.
Before the remote vehicle start system can be operated
with the keyless access transmitter it must be
activated. The remote start system is turned on through
the vehicle personalization system.
You can also program the remote vehicle start system
to start up the vehicle’s automatic climate control
system. If this feature is turned on, the system monitors
the outside temperature and turns on the rear window
defogger, front window defogger, and heated or
ventilated seats (if equipped).
