Question
Bought a 02 pathfinder for daughters first little truck from impound lot had chip key cut new battery brakes etc ran very good for months last week had new pioneer stereo and a remote start installed and noticed when truck running security light was lit on dash then dash lights came on remote start went wild engine would start turn over then shut off I believe its not  jiving with factory security all we really wanted was a key fob to open doors ...now it's a mess and ideas I think I am going to tow back to shop have remote start removed. Stereo was a nice one little remote, lug for charging blue tooth microphone could they have affected these things. All this aside when you put the car in drive the doors don't lock nor do they open when u put it in park is there a key sequence or something to do to bring this around or back or did this year not have this feature..

Answer
Take it back to them immediately.
There were wires left out of the installation and or, one or 2 miss connected.
This can and will cause problems down the road, and I strongly
suggest they look at the transponder bypass kit installed and the
OEM factory alarm disarm when remote starting is not working as well,
which leads me to a bad installation as a whole.

Not allot I can do about that without viewing the installation
that was done unfortunately.

That's my take on it from experience.
Have it redone.
