Doors will not unlock after remote start

0 votes
After remote start initiated (using 3 x lock on key fob), the doors are locked. However, when trying to unlock the door with the key fob to get in the car, nothing happens. I have to unlock the door by physically inserting the key and turning.

Any settings I need to change?

This is normal. 

 

As stated on our website, the oem remote does not work once the vehicle is remote started.

Is there a setting to unlock the doors first before remote starting, and keeping it unlocked? I have tried D2 but it unlocks and locks again after a couple of seconds, so that doesn't work. Thanks!
No unfortunatly not. This is why we recommend using an RF kit (after market remotes) on our website.

 

This would give you lock unlock features when the vehicle is running.
