is the check engine light on?

If it is a factory system, you need to click the lock button first and then immediately click and hold the autostart button (arrow going in a circle) for about 3-4 seconds and then it will start- the 3 blinks is to let you know it "heard" you but can't execute the command. you will get that same 3 blink light if you cycle the autostart twice without putting a key in the ignition (cycle=start, let run for 10 min., car shuts off)- if that happens, go out and start it manually and it will restart the 2 autostart rule. you may also want to check in your info center to make sure the autostart feature didn't get accidentally turned off.

My factory automatic start doesn't work, the menu states its on but the lights only blink once. no check engine light went on at all.

It's the hood latch. There is a way to bypass it. :)
