Black Screen with Remote Start

Recommended Posts

I've had this issue twice now on consecutive remote starts.  

 

1st Instance:

I started the vehicle remotely to let the vehicle warm up (sat over night) and waited approximately 5 minutes before getting in the vehicle.  Once in the vehicle, I hit the start/run switch, placed the gear selector into drive and proceeded to drive down the street.  A few seconds into the drive I notice the infotainment screen is blacked out.  I tried turning it on while driving and it wouldn't power on or anything.  I pulled over to figure out what was going on and couldnt get it to power on, flicker, or do anything.  I shut the vehicle off, opened the door, closed it, set the alarm, opened it and closed it again (all to mimic a normal procedure), hit the start button and everything then worked correctly.

 

2nd Instance:

I started the vehicle remotely to let the vehicle warm up (sat for an hour or so) and waited approximately 5 minutes before getting in the vehicle.  Once in the vehicle, I hit the start/run switch, placed the gear selector into drive and proceeded to drive down the street.  A few seconds into the drive I notice the infotainment screen is blacked out again.  After doing the same procedure as described in the first instance, the screen turned on and functioned correctly.

 

Whether or not the procedure I did had anything to do with resetting the PCM, or if simply shutting the vehicle down and restarting it fixed it, I have no clue.  However, I have a hard time believing that I need to pull over and shut down the vehicle to restart it in order to have my radio turn on.

 

Has anybody else had this issue?

Yeah same thing happened to me. Took to dealership and they found nothing, but reset radio and it went away. I also had issue with no sound on coming from radio.
