Discussion Starter #1
I recently had a remote start installed in my 1998 seville. After realizing that it seems to be starting improperly (ie:sounds like the starter is grinding only while using remote start) they investigated the problem and changed all installed parts. To no avail, the entire remote start system has been removed from my car. Is this car for some reason not compatible with a remote start system, or is it possible that just the model installed was not compatible.?? The system used was a viper.

Are remote starts offered from the factory on new Sevilles???

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

The car is compatible with a remote start.

My guess to why you are hearing the starter motor grind is because the remote start module does not see that the engine is already running. If the system was replaced in an effort to fix it with no avail, then it sounds like the installer did not locate the correct tach wire.
