2002 ford focus

hello, i own a 2002 Ford Focus mach 500. I had a remote car starter
installed a few days ago and the check engine light came on after
using it a few times. I went back to the installer and they said the
code came up for the fuel pressure system. they cleared it and i drove
it a few more days and used the starter once or twice, no light. after
that, i tried it again and the light came on. anyone have any idea
what this could be? it doesnt happen when i use the key. the car does
sound a little different when starting, but not everytime and only
when using the remote starter.

If all this wasnt enough to worry about, today i was inserting a cd
into the 6 disc changer and it got stuck. now the first two cds
cannot be read or ejected and there is a big clicking sound when
trying to do that. anyone have any directions on how to fix this?

thanks for the help

Had to look up what this is at all, iirc something like this
would be pretty illegal over here (Germany). Auxiliary heating
system (http://www.eberspaecher.com/en/index.htm - Pre-heaters)
are made for this purpose and can be started via timer or remote
control.

Remote guess, it's a problem with the immobilizer, which is taken
care by the key, at least with my Focus (1999). Perhaps try
detaching the car battery for 30 minutes and see if this
improves things?
