I have a question for the ISF owners...I don't know if its me or if its everyone that has one, but im pretty sure its just me

I think that whenever i start the car or remote start after the couple ding's of the car starting up,(like the sound when you have the door open) it has a loud screeching sound for about 2 seconds, does that happen to anyone else?

Also but whenever i remote start the car sometimes as soon as i pull out of my garage it just literally turns off the engine turns off and everythign just shuts off while its still in either Drive or Reverse, then i gotta park it and restart the car... i have no clue whats going on...please help, thanks

I've seen a regular IS shut off right away, and then start back up and be ok. No lights came on, and no codes left behind. I beliee they replaced the ignition module in it....

Good Luck

I have no idea about the screeching noise but that is weird :confused:

As for the remote start, I read from someone else that when you remote start the car then get in the car to drive it, you have to turn off and turn on the car again from the push button ignition every time, do you do that? Might want to give it a try. If you already do, then like ISFChamp says, you might want to bring it by the dealership

For the remote start issue I would go right to whoever installed it. If you installed it yourself I would call the remote start manufacturer and see if they can help. There are a significant amount of electronics on your car and one little issue can create more issues.
Is the screeching sound coming from inside the car or the engine? Might need a little more detailed info to help you out better..

the screeching sound is coming from inside the car like when i said the car ding's its like a longer version of it and higher in tone. Its occasionally but not all the time, but like 3/4 times i start the car

I've heard that before but on a Lexus that had it's battery dying. I would take it into service and have it checked out. It's possible the piezo chirper (ding ding) is no good.

okay ill have the dealer check it out, thanks alot thats exactly what its called? the piezo chirper?

For the remote start it just sometimes does it like mostly when i reverse all of a sudden it just completely shuts up but lights and everything still running engine turns off, and i have to park it and restart it, its really weird, but remote start you don't usually have to turn it off and turn it on again you can just drive off.

Yeah that's what it's usually referred to. Piezo chirper or door chime.
