Reported Issue: Remote starter system worked fine until vehicle was serviced. Keyless entry works fine but when the remote starter is activated it only flashes the parking lights 7X

Situation: Existing system or during new system installation test

Specific Vehicle, System or Bypass Interface: Applies to Code Alarm, Prestige and Pursuit Brand Remote Starter systems.

Possible Cause: System lost tachometer signal/not detected: When either a Code Alarm or Prestige remote starter system flashes the vehicle's parking lights 7 times after activating the remote start feature, either during installation testing or after the system was installed and remote started perfectly, this is indication that the tachometer signal from the vehicle wasn't programmed or programmed properly to the system (new install) or somehow (usually from the vehicle being serviced) the system lost it's programming due to the vehicle's battery being disconnected or electrical service problems etc.

Possible Fix: Reprogram tachometer signal to system

Tachometer Programming: (Each step must be done within 5 seconds of the next step) Step 1: Turn ignition on (do not start the vehicle) S2: Press & release the button on the systems antenna 3X. S3: Turn ignition OFF. S4: Press & hold the button on the antenna. S5: While still holding the button in, start the vehicle. Keep holding the button in until either the dash lights flash 4X or the system beeps/chirps 4X. S6: Release button: Dash lights will turn on solid for 3 seconds and shut off. Turn ignition OFF, remove keys and test remote start.

It worked! Had to try it a few times because I think wasn't doing each step quick enough. Saved me a costly trip to the shop!

Hi I am having problems with my remote. It has a car star and nothing seems to be working. 2 weeks ago I went to start it up and nada. I know its not the battery cause I replaced it 3 months ago. Any way 2 weeks ago it didn't unlock with remote then I used the key to open door. Then I tried pressing lock unlock starter over and over with different attempt to start. After doing this for 20 minutes I turned the KEY and wham it started. Not sure what I did. I removed battery and placed it back. So yesterday it happened again. So I tried again unlock lock for awhile but nothing happened. I tried again today but no success. I'm hoping you can help me. H50t59 remote. What is antenna. where is it. S4: Press & hold the button on the antenna.
