This is my first post on the site (been a reader for a while, just haven't asked any questions). I need some advice from you experienced folks...
I had Pursuit Series 4 channel remote car starter with full feature alarm system (model PRO-9775T) installed on my 2005 Tacoma in January of this year. For some reason now, whenever I remote start the truck, the parking lights donít come on. When I get off the train every night, I have no clue if the remote starter actually activated or not. The lights donít even flash when I arm the alarm. What could be the cause of this? If you have any ideas, I'd greatly appreciate any and all advice. Thanks.
I have no experience with you particular remote start but it sound like you have either a loose connection in the wires that go to your parking lights or the remote start itself may be defective. Just a guess.

The parking lights only work when I actually go to turn them on. When I remote start the truck, they usually come on until I get inside and put the key in the ignition. When I get off the train at night (5:30 p.m. EST), I have no way of knowing if my truck actually started until I get to a distance where I can hear it. Tonight was one of those nights that it didn't start and I had no idea until I was there.
I have an appointment tomorrow morning with the place that installed it. They pretty much said the same things you guys said (blown fuse or loose wire). If they think I'm paying a dime, they're sorely mistaken...
Depends on what the cranking cycle on the alarm is. Normally if your truck wont start in just a few cranks the alarm will stop and then try over its a safety feature in the unit so it doesnt burn up the starter. If it wont start at all then its probably somthing in the alarm or a programming issue
i got ya. it's just weird, because it will start, but some mornings it will just crank, like the alarm can't give it the extra juice it needs in the morning. haha
I would check the connection of the ignition wires..
also , you might be on to something as far as juice.. make sure that your remote starter was installed with a direct power line to the battery(fused of course). The factory ignition wires and 12 volt constants are not of size to provide all the power that the brain needs to run the vehicle... that could be your problem.
