Ok i went to remote start my car today and it would not start,it would go through the motions but would not start, could it be a bad relay? and if so where should I look for it or is it built into the alarm module itself? any help would be appreciated.

When you remote start it can you hear the remote start relays clicking? if not your nss wire might not be grounded out... or hoodpin could be grounded out.

can you start the car with the key?

the alarm brain may not be getting full power from the starter wire/ign wire or constant wires.

who did the alarm?

do you feel able to look under the dash and play with some wires?

I went into the dash and looked around for loose connections, I found that one of the harness plugs was kind of off kilter and i pushed it back in straight and now it seems to start everytime i tested it about 5-6 times without a problem:D

Why would it have been a NSS, people actually use them?
