I have a 2008 Chevy Impala LT. The remote start won't work (the clicker does work). Could it be because the engine light just came on?

Aftermarket for factory system? There would naturally be defaults to disable that if faults are detected with either. Will it plain start with the key?

Yes, the car starts and runs fine. The clicker works also. It just doesn't start.

Forgot to answer you. The remote came with the car, not aftermarket.

These things are not my specialty but you know if it is sensing a problem it should not keep trying to start by remote. It simply must know car is OK and starts right up or would just burn out a starter motor trying and it won't do that.

You can check the battery of the remote with a voltmeter or just get a new one.

YOU said CEL was on. Get the code readings as there may be something there that defeats the remote starter?? You need to know why it's on anyway,
