Hello everyone, I own a 2006 Commander Limited Hemi. It has a dealer installed Mopar remote start unit. I bought the car used. During a remote start, the instrument panel will come alive (normal), vehicle starts (normal), then the instrument panel goes completely dead with no lights or indications(abnormal). The instrument panel remains inop until the key is inserted, turned on, and the brake pedal is pressed. The issue here is two-fold.
1- The computer sees the car running with no fuel volume indicated or sensed and sets factory mil code U1411 (implausible fuel volume). This code will clear if car is operated through several drive cycles without another remote start.
2- The interior accessories (blower) are also inop until the brake pedal is pressed, which is not the most desirable option.

I feel the problem is most likely a programming issue or faulty control module. Has anyone else had a similar issue? If so any pointers. I would like to resolve this myself, both to save money and get smarter.
Thanks, Jerry

Did the dealer properly enable the remote start with their Starscan device? It sounds like the computer's confused about the remote start system.
