Question Remote start not working like it should

My remote starter function has been acting strange in the past couple of days. It has been working fine the times I've used it, just press the remote lock a couple of times and presto! she is started and I am on my way. Now when I activate it, everything happens like it supposed to and it cranks but no start. Any ideas? outside of that it is running beautiful.

Thanks

From what I remember, Nissan doesn't have a " factory" remote start. If you have one and it is integrated into your OEM key fob, it could be the dealership installed it and program the fob. I would the battery maybe it is getting weaker to send the signal? It seem like you can start it with the key in it with no problem so it's not the car per se. Otherwise I would take it to the dealership. What year is your Armada?

Its just the same as yours '04 LE 4x4. I thought the same about the fob and changed the battery but I can be in it and open and close power locks twice and the dash lights up, the engine cranks but no start. otherwise it is fine starts with the key in it like new.

i see. so its an aftermarket remote start? my 04 doesnt have remote start. if you stick the key in only (dont turn it) and press the buttons does it start? i would venture to think the bypass module is bad. or the anti-theft on the module isnt letting the car turn over because its thinking the car is stolen. there has to be some sort of light to tell you its in a 'theft' mode. this has to be diagnosed by the dealership or the shop you had it put in. its hard to tell you if we dont know what brand or how long you had the remote start. but this is my best guess. other might have a better idea. sorry.

Remote start it and look at the dash for a blinking key which means security. Ntrddrgn is right bypass module could be dead or came loose. I hate oem rs units they don't have range or expandability. Just my gas money contribution.
Lol. Good luck.

Well I just tried it while sitting in the vehicle and with the key in the security light is on. Maybe it is a relay or something or it is just worn out from age.
