This is a long shot but hopefully i can get some help from you guys!!
Context: Took my car to the dealership for a safety recall service and now the remote starter wont work properly. I brought the new issue to them but they want to charge me almost $250 for a diagnose, so, im trying to troubleshoot as much as I can before breaking the bank :(
The Problem: Remote Start will unlock/lock doors and the trunk but wont start the car.
Things I have already tried and no results:
- Valet Mode on and off
- Toggle Switch On and off
- New battery on the remote start
I have read on many posts that the parking lights should flash when the remote starts finds a problem. (6 flashes indicating open hood for example). However, my parking lights do not flash at all?
I do hear a faint clicking/ticking sound (5-6 clicks) coming from under the dash that seems to be coming from the remote starter "brain" and then nothing happens. If I try to lock/unlock the doors I can hear the same ticking sound (1 or 2) and it will do it. Here is video of it: https://drive.google.com/file/d/180VQgCSle5dE97FhxB4RQ5DkF5P4WdG6/view?usp=sharing

Thank you for reading this and hopefully someone knows.
