Factory Remote Starter works for 1 min then shuts car off , CEL

Ok so, my wife fires up the nitro this morning with the remote start and it fires right up. It usually will stay on for 15 minutes and shut off (which is normal) Today it shut off after 1 minute. It did this all day. There is also a Check Engine Light today which we've never had before. Could that be the reason why its shutting off after 1 min as a safety precaution?

Is the only way to check a CEL with an OBD II scanner tool? or can you do the turn the key off on off on trick to display the code?

I have a 2008 R/T

Thanks in advance
Chuck

Did you try it again? If it still stops, then it could be a problem.
