    Carputer acts weird when I remote start my truck.

    Sometimes when I use my remote starter to start my truck I will enter my truck and my Lilli will have power but will say "no signal input". I can hear my PC running though. If I cut power w/ my switch and then turn it right back on everything is OK. This only happens when I remote start and it doesn't happen all the time.

    Any ideas??

    When I remote start my truck...if I wait the 10 minutes (Opus shut down time) I have to restart it.

    Edit: Never mind, you said you could hear the pc running.

    Sounds like the pc is going into standby?
    What's the time period between when u start it and then get in the truck?
    Is the pc set to hybernate or standby?

    It's set to hibernate. I don't have an OPUS so I can't use stand by. I tried pushing the space bar on the keyboard but that don't work. I don't recal how long it is usually before I get in my truck but I wouldn't say more then 5-10 minutes.

    Set it NOT to hybernate, then see if it still has the same problem.

    How do you have your opus wired? It sounds like your accessory line becomes hot when you remote start the car, but soon after that, since the key is not actually in, its probably not staying live and so the opus is shutting down. Hook a voltmeter up and see what happens to your voltages when you remote start.

    I have a remote start, and I have a problem sometimes too. My acc line goes hot a lot longer than if I were to start it myself BEFORE it starts to crank. It usually resets my computer. Maybe that's what's happening to you?
