    I've experienced this a few times.
    I also have a CEL code 062A I haven't had the dealer resolve yet. Its a fuel pump sensor issue according to some knowledgeable people here.

    The only time mine has died is when the low fuel light was on. DID said something like low fuel for remote start.

    My only issue with remote start is driving off. After starting, unlicking the door and getting in, the shifter is locked and I'm stuck in park. The only way to get it moving is to shut off the engine and restart it with the start button.

    You can't drive from remote start. After remote get in car press brake and start button then you can shift and drive and that won't kill the car.

    That's a safety feature covered in owners manual.

    Op;

    Low fuel light on did the same for me. Have a peek at your gas guage.

    Guess they need gas to run. LOL

    Look right at your center gauge cluster... it even tells you there that you're in "remote start" and must press the start button to drive.

    I fixed the issue! I disconnected the negative because i put a new cold air intake and the CEL light came on. The CEL went off and the remote starts stays on! Im so glad

    Thanks for the help. That's one of the things this forum is all about. Sooner or later I would have dragged out that shiny thing in the glove box... the Owner's Manual. When all else fails, follow the instructions.

    I do not step on the brake to wake up the car from remote start. Only the start button.

    Still have to hit the brake to get out of park, but not to switch from remote start to normal run.
