That is normal operation of the unit. 


Same goes if you were to just start the car normally, the oem remote would stop functioning. 


I would sugget using an RF kit. https: lhttps://fortin.ca/en/technology/rf_kits.html

You have 2 options on these type of vehicles:


1- pop the cover off the handle and put the key in the door to unlock it.


2- RF kit for door lock control once remote started.
