The led should flash a certain number of times when there's a remote start error. Count the flashes. Each flash corresponds to a certain remote start error. You may have to tap into a fuel injector wire to get the tach signal. Try the below diagnostics:
Remote Start Shutdown/Startup Diagnostics
Shutdown diagnostics: If the remote start activates but fails to stay running, the remote start module has the ability to inform you of what may have caused the remote start failure. Before performing shutdown diagnos- tics it is important that you let the remote start shut off on its own i.e. let it attempt to start 3 times then shut down, if this is not done the unit will report the shutdown you used to shut off the remote start.
Note: Shutdown diagnostics does not report if the vehicles factory immobilizer is causing the problem.
To perform shutdown diagnostics:
1. With the ignition Off, press and hold the Control button (on Control Center).
2. Turn the ignition On and then back Off while holding the Control button.
3. Release the Control button.
4. Press and release the Control button. The status LED flashes to report the last shutdown for one minute or
until the ignition is turned on, as shown in the following table:
Status LED Flashes - Shutdown Mode
1 - Runtime expired
2 - Over-rev shutdown
3 - Low or no RPM
4 - Transmitter shutdown (or optional push button)
5 - (+) Brake shutdown
6 - (-) Hood shutdown
7 - Timer mode/Turbo mode/Manual mode error*
8 - Neutral safety shutdown
9 - Low battery (voltage mode)
10 - Alarm triggered **
11 - Wait-to-start input timed out
* Timer mode error: Ignition is on or shutdown input is active when activating timer mode.
Turbo mode error: Turbo mode is programmed off, engine is not on or shutdown input is active.
Manual mode error: MTS mode not enabled.
** Alarm was triggered during remote start sequence.
Startup Diagnostics: If the vehicle fails to activate the remote start, the remote start module will notify you via your Responder LC3 2-way remote control and will flash the parking lights on the vehicle to notify you of what caused the no-start situation.
Parking Light Flashes:
5 flashes - Brake wire is active
6 Flashes - Hood pin wire is active
7 flashes - Manual transmission mode is enabled and not initialized.
8 flashes - Neutral safety wire has no ground or the neutral safety switch is Off.
