I have a 2011 STS and remote starter stopped working. I had a CEL on which had to do with the aux water pump. I had it repaired and the CEL is off. I try to use the remote start and lights will blink but nothing happens. Yes I press the lock, lights flash, and than the start, lights flash but no engagement.

Any ideas??

I dont have a code reader, but will stop at auto zone to check. But just had it repaired and would think a code would have popped up

like aeg said, have you checked the settings (through the radio display) to see if aux start is still enabled. Mine likes to turn itself now and then when bored, just to let me know it hates me.

Some codes which do not set the check engine light will still cause the car to not remote start. Check the codes with a good reader and check the settings at the radio. Good Luck.

From the owners manual: 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 4‑62. . The valet lockout switch is on. . The keyless access transmitter is in the vehicle. . The vehicle's hood is open. . An unauthorized vehicle entry or a vehicle theft was attempted. If your vehicle has the remote start feature, the keyless access transmitter functions will have an increased range of operation. However, the range may be less while the vehicle is running. There are other conditions which can affect the performance of the transmitter, see Keyless Access System on page 3‑4.
