We just bought a used suburban with a remote ignition system. It does not work, however, when you atempt to use it the car will not start for some time there after, I assume this is an anti theft system gone awry. In general to start the car, you must turn the keyto the first click and wait for all the engine lights to come on and then fully turn the key to make it start. However this morning, it wont start at all. It is not the battery or cables or sparkplugs.
