Remote start scrape sound ???

Guys

Are any of you getting a scraping sound (like metal on metal) when you remote start the car. This only happens when I remote start the car first thing on a cold morning.

If I restart the car with my key -- it does not happen. Its been going on for a week now and it seems to be getting worse. I made an appointment to bring it in on Monday to get it checked out . But as we have to do with the dealers in brooklyn we have to be well prepared or they say "can't replicate the problem" and do nothing.

Thanks !

Re: Remote start scrape sound ???

Yeah. I never heard it or noticed it on my '09 V6, but I've read some posts on here about it happening still. I started my current '11 V6 one cool morning while standing next to it and heard it, but it lasted only a second or so.

The post indicated that it happens when the RS is used and the TCM (trans control module) hasn't been fully energized, which allows the ends of the torque convertor bolts to scrape on the engine block. But once you turn the key the TCM "wakes up" and allows the trans hydraulic pressures to properly locate the TC and Voila! Problem solved.

Here's are links to a couple posts that'll help:

Re: Remote start scrape sound ???

I had a similar problem with the remote start in my old Altima. It eventually ended up frying the brains of the starter, rendering it useless, and mostly draining the battery.

Re: Remote start scrape sound ???

I have had a similar problem and had it fixed! I did not get a mental to mental sound but a cycling noise like a fly-wheel spinning that was misaligned or had a broken spinning wheel tooth sound! Soon as I had put the key in an turned it to the on position, the sound would stop! I had an update on a fix after working with my Dealership with many issues with the Malibu that I had at the time! The original post was titled "Strange Noise Noticed At Idle" DrivenDaily has posted a link to click on to review the Posts' Above!

Re: Remote start scrape sound ???

A new kink - this morning I started my car when it was about 30 degrees. I didn't use RS but instead just got in and twisted the key. When it first started I heard the same noise that we're talking about with RS. I think I'll get it into the dealership soon. But it sure is good to know that these TSBs exist, making it easier to ask about fixes.

I also have had a strange scraping sound when starting the car with my ket only happened twice, once being this morning. Very strange sound almost like there is no oil.

I"m not in a colder climate. I'm in SC and the car is always in the garage.

Re: Remote start scrape sound ???

The wife's had made some odd noises as well. We never really use it since the range is so terrible anyway.
