Default How to tell if aura has Remote start(without fob)

This may sound like a dumb question. I have searched on the forums and cant find anything on how to find out if my car has remote start. It didnt come with a key fob when I purchased the car used. Only 1 valet key. How do I know if it is equipped? Reason I am asking is bc im going to buy a set of fobs for it and need to know which one i should order! Thanks in Advance!

One of our forum members recently provided instructions in a different thread on how to test whether an AURA is capable of remote start:

Here's the link to the specific post with the instructions:

This is the complete thread:

Let us know if it works for you.

If you have the owners manual, review it. If not; http://www.saturn.com/owners/owner_r...s/manuals.html. My guess is remote keyless entry is standard for Auras, remote starting either an option or standard. Having an ignition key using PASS-Key® III+ also enables/disables GM's theft deterrent system. If I'm not mistaken, these keys have the rfid chip embedded in the plastic part.

I have leather and heated seats and compass and powered mirror, but where is the univ remote? Also I dont have the AP8 code or what not in my glovebox, its not there.

Did the codes change year to year? I was curious if this had remote start as well.

So how can I tell if this car has remote start as well?

I mean it has everything else previously mentioned here in that same package, but on the sticker I do not see AP3

is it possible its still there? or was it possible to get those other options without getting remote start?

I suppose it's possible. You could try calling a GM dealer and ask if they can look it up on or give you a copy of the build sheet based on the VIN. If it doesn't have remote start, the dealer may be able to install or activate it in the car.
Can you post a pic of the options tag.
Here is a list of GM RPO codes. (Not sure of its accuracy)

If you have the factory original remotes, do they have the remote start button? Yes - press and hold the start button and listen for the engine startup and release. No - you don't have remote start and either ask your local GM dealer to check against your vehicle VIN or other info specific to your vehicle.

The little radio thing is the RCLDR module. It is the receiver for the TPMS, tire pressure monitor system and the Remote keyless entry system, in equipped models the remote starter.
There is only 1 part number for the RCLDR module but must be flashed at installation so it could contain different software. Thus you can't tell from it whether you have remote start. The remote start feature is software installed in the BCM so it could be in the module and be active or not active depending on the options purchased. This is why a call to a GM dealer with your VIN might best answer your question. Remotes must normally be programmed by the dealer anyway.
If you are willing to throw a few dollars at it to find out. Dorman has a programmer module (13731) that comes with a remote. For about what the dealer would charge to just program a remote to your car. One thing to remember, the programmer is good for 3 sessions then it's no good and all key fobs must be re-programmed at the same time. So if you want more than one key fob, buy them at the same time.
https://www.amazon.com/Dorman-13731-...2920422&sr=8-3
Here is a link for extra key fob, without the programmer.

Oops, my bad. Frustrating when suggestions aren't followed up, prolonging threads with others asking similar questions. Many never reply.

All part of foruming...lol...for the longest time I wasn't getting notifications of replies, they were going to junk mail. I think that may happen to many people. Once I figured out how to whitelist the forum emails I started getting them right away.
Just so you know on the Aura to remote start, you press lock, then press and hold start for a few seconds.

Default Re: How to tell if aura has Remote start(without fob)

^ Thank you for the heads up on remote start use with factory remotes. When I copied the image for show, I assumed it was an easy 'press and hold the remote start button until the engine starts up....'.

Things tend to get complicated in some areas. My aftermarket remote start uses Saturn's factory remote; pressing Lock twice tells the remote start module to activate startup. My L300 uses the four button remote, no fifth button. The place installing remote start said they programmed the remote module to accept GMs remote signal instead of using the supplied remotes. If this were the case, I'd be carrying two remotes, the second one only for remote starting. I prefer simplicity and was glad they setup my car this way.
