OK, do you have an engine light on? If you don't most likely it is fuel related, when's the last time changed your fuel filter?

The engine light on is a problem, is there anyone that can download the codes from you car? If not try disconnecting the battery and let it sit for 15 minutes then hooked the battery backup and tell me how it acts.

As long as your remote is now working it will continue to work even if you pull the battery cable, just make sure you have the code to your radio.
