I am having an aftermarket alarm and power locks installed. The installer is telling me everything works at first but, 5 mins after the car is left off the door lock fob won’t work until a door is opened. Does anyone have any advice?

Just got off phone he stated he is using a GEM module or similar to communicate that is controlled by a relay that controls the power. Does this mean anything.?

With there being so many brands and configurations of these Auto start/ alarm systems the best advise i can give you is for him to go directly to the system manufacture and wire it as per their recommendations.for your car.
