Wrench Remote Start for 2005 Saturn Vue

Wow, this forum is freakin awesome!

I'm in the hopes that someone can answer one question for me.
I recently installed a designtech remote start in my 99 Mitsubishi Montero Sport and 2005 Saturn Vue and everything works great. Headlights, doorlocks,
Great start up and everything! All connections were tested and soldered and there are no security or service icons lit up on the dash. Again, everything works.

However, every once and a while the saturn Vue won't shut off with the key after it has been started with the remote. I'm pretty sure that is will shut off if I use the keyto start it, just not if I use the remote.

I used their universal bypass module 29402, measured and tuned in the resistance fine.

The remote start model is Ready Remote 23927

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

It sounds like a faulty designtech (ignition control relay arcing closed perhaps)

By any chance will it shut off with the brake pedal applied after its still running with the key removed?

I believe the 23927 has an optional "Turbo Timer" Check the user/installer manual under "OPTIONS PROGRAMMING". If the Turbo Timer is set, that may be what is keeping the car running after the key is turned off under certain conditions. (What it is actually supposed to do)

Thanks for the super fast response! The vue will shut off when the break is pressed. So you think it could be a faulty unit!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

If the brake shuts it down the wiring is good! Sounds like the Designtech is the culprit as long as that turbo timer feature isnt programmed and your not accidently hitting the remote start button when turning off the ignition switch.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

There is no turbo time feature. I checked the manual. I'm waiting on the phone now with the company. Hopefully it won't take an hour like last time. thanks again for the info!
