Remote Start Limit?
2009 3.7 gas engine I have the remote start. Handy as heck. I work in a camp that is far north and cold. I would find it very handy to start the vehicle every time I thought that I might use it even if it turns out that I don't need a trip to the field. I can only start it twice in a row (with its standard 15 minutes of run) and then it won't start again until I insert and turn the key/fob. Is this a Dodge limit? Is there a way to change it so that I could start it and let it run any number of times consecutively?
Thanx for any help.

After the 2nd remote start, you have to insert the key in the ignition & start it up, or at least turn the key to the ON position
I am not sure which
When someone usually starts up their vehicle, they check the FUEL level & sometimes the other gauges.
Other things the starter system checks before starting
doors ajar, low fuel level, hood latch shut, i don't know if the windows can be down
if your check engine light is ON, it won't remote start either

Likely there are other things that the system checks before it starts remotely

To the best of my knowledge, this 2 start cycle limit cannot be changed. :(
