Q: My remote starter only opens the door but does not start the car.

asked by on

The remote only opens the door and locks them. It doesn't start the car.When i press the start button i can hear the car attempting to start on its own about three times then it goes silent. What do i need to do? Also I bought the car from a lady and she's not in my contact anymore so i possibly couldn't ask her about that.

My car has 60000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
