    Exclamation 2004 Buick Century Remote Start Problems

    My mom just bought a 2004 Century, a very nice car by the way. She said she couldn't get the remote start to work so I tried it yesterday. The doors would unlock and the car would start, then about 5 seconds later it shuts off and the doors lock. I tried starting the car with the key and then trying the remote start, but the same think kept happening, car starts but shuts off after about 5 seconds. Any ideas??

    Re: 2004 Buick Century Remote Start Problems

    Welcome to the forums! When you start the car with the key, does the engine continue to run normally? I don't think remote start was an option from the factory in '04, so it sounds like someone had an aftermarket remote start installed. It could also be a combination remote start & security system. If that is the case, it sounds like the security system is shutting off the engine after 5-sec. Do you have any identification on the remote that might give the name & model number of the system?

    thanks for the welcome!! yes the car runs fine with the key. I do believe it might be aftermarket because there is the normal lock/unlock/trunk/alarm remote and a separate remote for the starter. I will check with my mother to see if it has any markings and I can do my own research on that. She does have a trouble light on due to an antilock brake sensor, i wonder if that could be the problem?

    There is no relationship between the ABS system & the remote start/security system. Sorry, but that is another problem.
