Bumble Bee don't wanna crank

If I may request a little assistance from the Camaro gawds please!
Go to get in my car and double click the locks to initiate a remote start and the lights flash and it makes a single click like always but the car will not turn over. Unlock door and get inside and put key in ignition and turn the key to attempt to start. All the the dash lights and radio and a/c are on but car wont turnover until i try it multiple times. Cranks up finally and idles fine but engine light is on.
Noticed not too long ago the a/c blows hard the soft then hard then soft and radio light would dim and get bright...dim and get bright. None of these things happening at the sametime. It is 1400 miles outta warranty and I am sure GM isn't gonna help me out either.
Ideas? Anything is appreciated!

Make sure your battery connections are clean and on tight. Your battery might be dying too. Hook up a multimeter and check the voltage. It should be 12.6 VDC.
Do you have any aftermarket electronics (sound system, etc.)? Make sure all grounds and electrical connections are tight and clean.

Battery is good. Seems to only be not turning over after a fail attempt to start with remote start fob.

Sorry. Tried the brake and all is working fine. Will take it to autozone this weekend and get the code deciphered. Only time it wont turn over is when/after i use the remote start. Guessing that is my issue but will see soon enough i guess. Calling warranty manager at a local dealership and hopefully they will foot the bill.

I apologize for the frustrations you may be experiencing with this issue. Have you been able to get the vehicle over to your local dealership yet? Please let us know the outcome!
