Hi I have an 07 jeep commander with factory remote start, The problem is that when I use the remote start, the truck will start, but after 10 to 15 seconds it turns off, It is not showing me any codes. I have read that it is common for commanders to loose the SKREEM codes. I have the manual form the internet http://www.robagd.com/cars/robs/PDFs/Mopar_LX_Remote_Start_Install_Manual.pdf
It states I need two keys, ( I have them ) also I need to press the "Programming button, in the custom harness" Where is this located? Any help would be appreciated.

You can't go by that manual because it is specifically for the Chysler 300 LX. The Commander does not have a "programming button" in the wiring harness (that I have heard of ).

P0128


Remote start will also cancel if any of the following occur:

If the engine stalls or RPM exceeds 2500
Any engine warning lamps come on (IT HAS TO COME ON AT THE TIME OF THE REMOTE START???? OR IF IT IS ON IT WILL DO THAT?)


The hood is opened
The hazard switch is pressed
The transmission is moved out of park
The brake pedal is pressed.

P0128 OBD-II Trouble Code

Technical Description
Coolant Thermostat (Coolant Temperature Below Thermostat Regulating Temperature)

What does that mean?
This means that the engine's PCM detected that the engine has not reached the required temperature level within a specified amount of time after starting the engine. The intent of the P0128 code is to indicate a faulty thermostat. Similar codes: P0125

In determining the engine did not reach a "normal" temperature, it takes into account the length of time the vehicle has been running, the intake air temperature (IAT) sensor reading, the engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor reading, and the speed of the vehicle.

Symptoms
You will likely not notice any drivability problems other than the MIL illumination.

Causes
A code P0128 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:

Low engine coolant level
Leaking or stuck open thermostat
Faulty cooling fan (running too much)
Faulty coolant temperature (ECT) sensor
Faulty intake air temperature (IAT) sensor

Possible Solutions
Past experience indicates that the most likely solution is to replace the thermostat. However here are some suggestions on troubleshooting and repairing a P0128 OBD-II code:

Verify coolant strength & level
Verify proper cooling fan operation (check if it's running more than it should). Replace if necessary.
Verify proper engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor operation, replace if necessary.
Verify proper intake air temperature (IAT) sensor operation, replace if necessary.
If the above items check out good, replace the thermostat
If Nissan vehicle, check for a TSB such as this one. The ECM may need to be reprogrammed to correct the P0128 code

Any engine warning lamps come on (IT HAS TO COME ON AT THE TIME OF THE REMOTE START???? OR IF IT IS ON IT WILL DO THAT?)

By having this code is it preventing the remote star to work correctly?
Or do I have to reprogram my keys.

That could very well be the reason the remote start is not working. Best thing to do is take care of the code problem first and then see if the remote start works.
