Just had a AUTOSTART brand remote starter installed in my bare bones 2012 sport 6 speed manual... and now the CHECK ENGINE LIGHT comes on intermitintly.
I brought it back to the shop (very reputable shop here in town) and they figured out that it`s an issue with the clutch bypass module. They are waiting on the manufacturer to get back to them. I was wondering if any other owners have run into this problem and what was done to fix the issue.
They do not offer remote start option on a '12 JK standard shift.
The installation guys somehow bypassed that, BUT the JK electronics doesn't seem to 'like' what they did. What is the DTC?
Then if they used a RS kit for an automatic and not for a standard shift they fawked up. I have to guess that the parking brake has to be engaged and the shift is in the Neutral position, or it will not work.
Senators and Congressman should wear uniforms like NASCAR drivers so we could identify their corporate sponsors....
If what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger, I should be able to bench press a Grand Cherokee by now!
my understanding is the nuetral bypass wasnt around, so when you try to start it, it surged forward if in gear
In the early days of remote start, my brother put one in his car. He figured he would always leave it in neutral. He figured wrong. It started, and drove down the street, just missing some cars before burying itself in a snow bank.
