(Some info oil change and life is good - 1/2 tank of gas and 18 degrees at this point) any ideas

When you have a trouble code (check engine light on) the remote start feature is disabled. Have the computer scanned and post the codes here so we can help. Advance and Autozone auto parts stores will scan it for free. HTH. -Jim

I believe the car has to be in the lock position before it will remote start. Perhaps the below freezing weather has stopped some of the contacts to be made to complete the circuit for remote start? If you have it in a protected garage so it will warm up, and it is above freezing for a while, try and see if it works. Don't leave it un-attended or running in a closed garage as carbon dioxide poisoning will be a factor. Also make sure it was locked before trying the remote start.

The remote start will not work with the check engine light on at all. And the vehicle will automatically shut off after running for so long without the key actually turned on. If it's like my 2009 traverse I can restart it one more time with the remote, given no check engine light, and after the second time of it running long enough without the key turned on to shut off it will not start a 3rd time without manualy starting it with the key. Hope this helps.

Definetly get the check engine light code read with a scanner though. A lot of car part stores will do it free of charge or pretty cheap. It could be something as simple as Oxygen sensors or the gas cap not being right enough is a very common one too. Hope this helps.
