Lock the doors on my Enclave and press the remote start on the key fob.  Sometimes it works but most times it does not. Any suggestions ?

Since it's under warranty, best bet IMO is to take it to the dealer...  thumbs up

like he said.

But remote start- can sometimes be disabled if an error has been detected. is your check engine light on?

Are you even hearing any clicking? 
Do you see the lights flash?  (the step before it remote starts)?

Have you tried your 2nd fob?   is it possible your FOB is dirty and the contact points are dirty?

This may be obvious, but just in case....are you holding down the start button till it starts?  You can't just push it, you have to hold it.  Push and release the lock, then push and HOLD the start until the lights flash, and it starts.

Kids may be into something. The start button must be depressed for at least 4 seconds after pressing the door lock button in order for the remote start to function.

I stand in my living room...press the lock twice so I hear the horn.  Then I press and hold the start button until I hear the Outlook turn over.  Never have had any issues with the remote.  Smiley

I have a similar issue - it is always a PIA to get the remote start going.  Ive stood right next to the E and hit lock then held down the start button for more than 10 secs - it sometimes takes 3 tries.

Im trying to see if there needs to be a slight delay between hitting 'lock' and then holding the start button down.

Sounds to me like you ought to go to the service department and demonstrate that to them. It just isn't right as you describe it. Of course, it will work perfectly in front of a service guy!!

Thanks for the replies. Every other function on my key fob works so I will have to take it back to the dealer. My wife's key fob works just fine. I guess I could just swap key fobs when she wasn't looking..........
