remote start

Hello, I am having a problem with my remote start on a 2007 Outlook X with 31,000 miles on it. Push the locked button on the remote the lights flash, then push the remote start button within 4 seconds the lights always flash again but the car does not start. This happens probably 80% of the times. If I go out to the car and start it without the FOB, I start it and in 3 seconds turn the car back off, go into the house and go through the ritual again, the car starts with no problem. I am at lose of what is going on. The book says a window open, brake not on, car is not locked, all these things have been checked and rechecked but the same thing keeps happening. I installed a new battery 2 month's ago, and replaced the battery in the FOB. If anyone can give me any insight on what I am doing wrong, or any advise, it surely would be great fully appreciated.

I assume you have more than a quarter tank of gas that 80% of the time.My truck would take two tries if I was down to 2 gallons of gas, worse on a hill.
You are doing really good with a 2007 and only 31k on her. I just sold my 2008 with 206,000.

Funny we are discussing this, my 2015 enclave wouldn't remote start this morning, I know that it was low on gas and at an angle. Later it did work on a level surface before I filled up.

I have a 2008 Outlook and have done a lot of work on it myself putting a brand new motor and converter in it. Through out the whole process I have found out that what your issues is from having a fault code in your ecm. The code won't show up on your dash. I get a p0204 code and when the remote start won't work I go in a remove it. Then it will work again. So I would bet you have some type of fault code or a code in your ecm. I have a Bluedriver OBD 2 code reader and will use that to remove the code. Then the remote start will work again.

Yes if there are any CELs in the computer, the remote start will not work.
