I got ready for work as usual -remote started the car (7 degrees) dropped kids off then went to work. All good no problems. 10hrs. Later remote started 2011 traverse or so I thought. Went out to leave and auto not running . Didn't think much of it and started it and check engine light was on and remote start won't work. (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.
