Remote Start Disabled

I recently disconnected the ground from my battery to install some speakers in my car and then reconnected everything but now my remote Star won't work. I'm not low on gas or anything. The second I press the remote start it doesn't beep or anything. The car locks and this message pops up



After I restart the same thing keeps happening. What do I do?

Haven't had that happen to me, but maybe it will take several restarts to clear the message? Try not using remote start for awhile and simply starting the KL and using as normal for awhile...maybe it will self clear?

Is the Check Engine Light on? often after removing the neg battery terminal, a CEL will turn on. the remote start system will not function if there is an active CEL.

It was fir about a day when I did this a few days ago and has since gone off. The vehicle has been through several starts now over the past few days and still the same problem

Do you have AutoSS? If so, you have to disconnect the battery monitor before you disconnect the negative terminal. I just read this today somewhere.

If you cant get your remote start to work, you can have mine. I used it twice just to see if it works.

For Fleet use, we disable it. Might need to enable it under "Customer Preferences" in Witech at the Dealer.

I don't have the autoSS but i did figure out the cause of my problem...
Drum rolllllllll it was a bad battery. Dropped a new one in and it fixed all of my electrical issues I've been experiencing. Thing wassn't cheap either it was $190........

Are you still under warranty? I believe that the battery is covered. I found this out after having my 2014 Journey Crossroad. I had the battery replaced after one year, only to be told that it was covered under warranty!

Nope I'm out. It's been 3 years and I've got 65k miles in it. I didn't take the extended warranty

Very late to this party, sorry... but I'm very confused about something. First off I don't have the premium display you guys have in the TH and Limited (and Overland), so I've never seen that "Remote Start" message the way it is there.

Here's where I'm confused a little : I've read posts here about Stop/Start (and we see that on your display in your screenshot as well, but you don't have ESS (electronic stop/start). So that message is really for remote start, not stop/start ? The display is confusing...

Oh and about the price of your battery : if you had a 2015+ with ESS, the battery is AGM and the cheapest you'd find would be like $280. But the AGMs are better batteries...

But anyway, mind if I ask which battery you bought ? From the dealer ?
