Well I think I can say this problem is related to the shutdown error I mentioned earlier now.

And you can add this issue to the ones that will make your remote start not work.

Tried it a couple of times with repeatable results.

Both times I was able to start the truck remotely just fine. I then hopped into the truck, inserted the key, drove a bit, then stopped, and shut the truck off while in the drive mode of an 8-speed. The truck recognizes this error--a message comes up on EVIC that it has moved the tranny to park. At that point you can't even get the key out--have to move it to off, then back on to the accessory level again--then to off--before it will come out.

IMmediately after that occurs and you exist the vehicle with door shut--with the truck off and standing right outside the truck--it will beep when you hit the remote start but it WILL NOT start. Yet when you hop in and insert the key it starts fine.

So I'm not sure anything was wrong after all, but will keep an eye on it.
