First off, it’s important to understand that the check engine light is a diagnostic tool used by mechanics to determine what is wrong with your car. It is not an “error” or malfunction as such – it does not mean that your car has stopped working.
The check engine light only comes on when there is a problem with one of your vehicle’s emissions systems. This could be anything from a problem with the fuel system to a loose gas cap or any number of other issues.
The thing about remote starters is that they rely on your car’s onboard computer system to control when the engine starts and stops. If there is a problem with this system, then it could affect how well (or even if) your remote starter works.
So, if you have some sort of problem with the emissions system on your car, then it’s possible that this will cause problems with your remote starter system too. In this case, there are two things you can do:
Have Your Computer Reflashed
If you’re having problems with your remote starter system and have had a checkup recently (where they diagnosed any problems), then chances are good that everything is fine and there’s just something wrong with how their computer system is programmed for remote starting systems.
