Ok it did turn on the parking lights, but the car didn't start.
Is there a dedicated fuse for the remote start?

Default Re: Aura remote start?

Found this...Hope it helps...not sure about a fuse, but it's doubtful.
If the check engine light is on or the fuel level is low, the remote start will not work. As well as:
A current vehicle DTC that illuminates the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL)
The vehicle is in valet mode. (not sure Aura has Valet mode)
More than 2 remote starts have been attempted.
The hazard switch is in the ON position.
A current hazard switch DTC is set.
The vehicle hood is ajar.
A current hood ajar DTC is set.
The CTD system detects an alarm trigger.
Excessive engine RPM
Excessive coolant temperature
Accelerator pedal position greater than 0 percent
Vehicle not in Park
Vehicle theft deterrent malfunction
A current automatic transmission shift lock control system DRC is set.
A vehicle speed sensor signal is detected by the ECM.

Check it with a scan tool and it will tell a reason that the remote start is disabled. but to check this, you need a scan tool that can read the Body Control Module Data.
The Hood switch has 3 wires to it and the black wire is a ground and the purple wire should get grounded when the hood is closed and the pink wire should be grounded when open.

Turns out I had an engine code being thrown that was not allowing a remote start.
Cleared the code, and it started up.
Interesting side note is that I must have gotten an early production Dorman set, and the battery is nearly dead.
Well I got an alert in the trip odometer area that alerted me to the battery being low.

Glad to hear you got it going. I didn't know about the remote low battery notification.

I traded my 2008 XE a while ago, but my Aura (and others according to the dealer) had a "hidden" remote start function.

Although I had a remote without a remote start button, if I pressed the lock button once, the unlock button twice and then the lock button again, the car would remote start. Some here theorized that maybe it was some kind of fleet option, although mine was not a fleet vehicle AFAIK.

Another update on my dorman remote. Three different new batteries, and all 3 get the low battery alert on the Aura dashboard.
So now i'm wondering if the remote is defective, and not using the full battery charge for some reason.
I got a second one i'm going to program in the next couple of days, and i'll see if it does the same thing.

Look at the solder joint for the + battery clip. Might be a cold solder joint.

Haven't had the time yet, but I programmed the 2nd remote and it works with no battery warning.
