"My vehicle will remote start fine but then it immediately shuts down exactly like as if someone stepped on the brake pedal although no ones in the vehicle. What could cause this?"

ANSWER: The two most common problems that can cause this situation is #1 (which is the most common) Somehow the remote starter's bypass interface kit lost it's programming and will need to be reset and reprogrammed to the vehicle (how this is done depends on the model of bypass/interface kit the installer used when he installed the system) or #2 the remote starter system's "tachometer input signal" need to be reprogrammed to the remote starter system (this procedure also depends on the brand and model of remote starter system).

HOW TO CHANGE VOXX SERIES SYSTEMS ENGINE DETECTION MODE:

Read each step before performing to familiar yourself with the procedure. Each step has to be done within 5 seconds of the next step:

Turn the ignition ON (DO NOT start the vehicle): Press & release the systems programming button on the antenna 3X:

The system will flash the vehicle’s dash lights and beep the vehicle’s horn 1X:

After this is seen/heard, turn the ignition OFF then ON again: The system will sound 1 long and 2 short pulses:

 

After this is seen/heard, turn the ignition OFF then ON once more: The system will sound 1 long and 3 short pulses:
 

Next, leaving the ignition ON, slowly press and release the button on the antenna 5X in a row: The LED on the antenna will flash in a 5 flash/pause/5 flash pattern indicating you are in the ENGINE DETECTION MODE:

 

To change the setting, press and release the LOCK button on one of the systems remotes (or the one button on 1-button remotes) until the system beeps/flashes the same number of times as the desired setting below:

 

1 BEEP/FLASH = TACHOMETER INPUT (Must program tach signal after setting change)

2 BEEPS/FLASH = TACHLESS (Must start the vehicle 8X letting the vehicle rung for at least 10 secs. each time after setting change)

3 BEEPS/FLASH = DATA

4 BEEPS/FLASH = HYBRID

 

Once the desired setting is chosen, turn the ignition OFF, wait, the system will sound with a long pulse. Setting change is complete.
