Hello All,

Just joined, first post. I use to be over at the InfinitiJX forum but i am glad i found this as it seems much more active.

We have a 2013 infiniti JX35 with about 40,000 miles on it. We have used the remote start from time to time. Today we went to use it and nothing. I locked the car, then immediately hit the remote start button holding for 1+ minute. I tried this away from the car and close to the car nothing would happen other than lock the car. I have tried this with both key fobs, still nothing. I went into the car settings on the steering wheel and checked and the remote start feature has a check mark by it.

Does anyone have any idea as to what might be causing this issue? Any suggestions?

Thanks

I believe you have to hit lock button twice and then hold remote start button
Thanks, i have tried that as well and go go. I do have a remote that will start the car remotely. The other key fob will not. The key will start the far and unlock it, just not perform a remote start.

Though the steering wheel, in the settings try unchecking (turning off remote start) and then checking it again to see if that "resets" it.

The only other things that I can think of: low remote battery or your hood may not be closed all the way.

Hope this helps.

I got it working, i think the last time we brought the vehicle to the dealer they didnt close the hood all the way. Now all is working and well. Thanks for the input.

Sounds like you sorted it. But just for future reference, here are a couple things that will keep a car from remote starting:

Doors not all closed completely
A Key inside the vehicle (leave 2nd key in there and it won't remote start)
Not locking the vehicle with the keyfob before hitting the remote start button
