    2013 Kia Soul Remote Start

    So, my wife and I bought a 2013 KIA Soul + ECO that we bought in Sept 2012 that came with the remote start feature. As much as I would like to complain about the mileage thing, I'll save that for another day. Our remote starts works about 1 out of every 20 tries. When we hit the button two times within three seconds, it's supposed to turn on. However, ours just beeps twice and the lights flash twice. According to our manual, it says that if it chirps twice and doesn't turn on, it was determined that one of the following things has occurred: Hood open, brake pedal pressed, or key in the ignition. Obviously none of these things are occurring so I was wondering if anyone else had this issue?

    Who did this remote starter installation? Have you called your dealer about it?

    I got mine installed by the dealer, knowing for a fact that it would cost me at least $200 over market normal value for similar quality remote. I did that for the sole reason that in case it doesn't work, dealer can't blame it on anyone else but the dealer himself.

    To be honest, mine was such a pain to install, that it triggered a 90min late delivery (took 2.5h to install instead of 1.5h). These things are so complexe that it could be hard to troubleshoot it on the Internet. The guy that was swearing about it does this for a living...
