Remote Start car acts like the car a dead battery, but key starts the car fine
About a week ago my check engine light came on right after I started my car. The dealer plugged in their little computer and it showed I had a single misfire event. They cleared the code.
The other day the check engine light came on, again. This morning when I went to remote start the car, it would not start. I went out to the car and tried the remote start and it act like the battery is run down. The lights flash and the starter makes the clicking noise, etc, but it never turns the engine. So I climbed in and tried to start the cay with the key. It started right up. I check my other remote and got the same result.
I have had the car in to the shop two occasions because it would not start after it sat for three days. They've never been able to find anything wrong.
The car is a 2007 HHR 2LT it has about 11890 miles on it. I was using regular gas and had no problems. About a month ago I start back on premium gas. The last three tanks have been premium. I was using Shell, but there are none close to where I live so the last four tanks have been Chevron, Fred Meyers, 3 gallons of 7-Eleven and a tank of of Fred Meyers.
The dealer complained about my locking gas cap when he cleared the codes the first time, so I put the factory installed gas cap back on.
