    That doesn't sound right to me. Check the batteries in your remote. But I read oem doesn't have much range at all.

    I park on the top deck of the Columbus airport. I start my truck on cold days while landing. As we fly over to land I hit start. Clifford system. It cool to see the truck light up at night from the plane window.

    That's pretty cool right there!

    When in Cleveland I start mine from the hotel room 1/2 a block away from the parking garage it's parked in. Forget what brand it is - came with the truck when I bought it used.

    I have a 2017 with OEM remote start. Mine works from several hundred feet away.

    I'd say test or replace your remote battery.

    Furthest I've checked mine was from the 5th floor of Children's Hospital in Denver. Here's a photo of the parking area. I'm parked out by the city bus on the parking garage in the photo and it worked great. Fortin Evo One. Few hundred yards out and 5 floors up.

    I don't know if 2007 was a bad year for it had it installed at factory. When I Ordered the truck I have to be 10 ft from truck to start it any more and nothing. I tried both remotes and new batterys.

    I park 2 blocks from my building and with direct line of site can start mine from the 4th floor using the OEM starter and fob.
