sounds like the tach wire. the remote start needs a tach signal to know its running. some remote start units can be programmed for voltage sensing without needing a tach sensor wire. if yours can't do that, you'll have to hook the tach sensor wire up - usually under the hood. i dont know which wire that would be but i usually get that info from 12volt.com
