I replaced an existing remote start on my freestyle do to poor range. All went well until i tried programing.Initially when programed vehicle remote started on first try,after that  the security light will flash all other functions work but no remote start. if i unplug override module and incert key in ignition vehicle will remote start. Red light on module will stay solid red until i press start button again to turn off accessories,than light will flash 8 times then stay on solid

I would try reprogramming, and when you get to step 8, please follow the instructions for Manual Transmission and push on the programming button THEN power up the vehicle's ignition wire with a  jumper. Wait for 10 flashes


The reasoning behind this is that some remotestarter take too long to start the vehicle when activated so the 10 second time limit runs out, by pressing on the programming button and jumping ignition you eliminate this problem


Thank you,
