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 for long reply. Have been out of the country. So if your remote loses its program it wont start with the key in the ignition or remotely?
The engine light is back on as of this morning as well. Took it to AutoZone and code said it is out of time (and note the autozone guy said those codes may or may not be accurate which means I wasted 10 minutes of my life I will never regain for a code that doesnt mean a damn thing). Guy unhooked the scanner and when i got in it to leave the engine light was off again. Pissin me off this crap is.

Ok i see...why would the gas cap give me an engine light? The code the autozone guy got was saying it is out of time. I will have to take it to the dealer as bad as I hate too. $30k car and at 37,500 miles is when the house of cards comes down.
Am having more issues now. Will post more when I get done with customer service rep and dealership.
When I do is anyone looking for a good deal on a '10 2LT? LoL!
