The remote starter works by hooking up to the starter solenoid directly so you must have a bad ignition switch, Check that for power coming through it with a 12volt meter

Hi, I have a Riv 1989....this "same" situation happened to me last week! My battery tested with 13 volts AND dropped to 10 volts....using a battery "load tester". What it meant was that "something" was pulling the voltage down too far to even light the lights! So I jacked up the front, took off the plastic cover (keeps dirt out from the bottom of engine)....tapped lightly - LIGHTLY on the STARTER using hammer, then put in a healthy battery...started just like usual! - callhow@hotmail.com
