    I have a 2011 Patriot two remotes, that when I try either one they only LOCK the doors and no starting. Batteries new. Suggestions to retrieve remote start. Thanks Kirk

    Is the check engine light on? If so, remote start is disabled.

    The remote start always locks the doors before starting. It still does that even if remote start fails.

    Welcome to Allpar. There are a few things that will disable a remote start for safety and tamper reasons. See p. 24-25 of your owners manual. As mentioned, fault codes may prevent a remote start.
    If this just stopped working after a fob battery change, it may be that the code has been 'corrupted' and it may need a module reset or dealer assistance to get the feature back?

    Low fuel warning light will do it also.
