I don't know if I can be of any use, but someone here might. Seems like more info is needed
What year/version of car do you have?
Are you the original owner/how long have you had the car?
What remote start kit is installed?
Has it always not worked, or did it used to work and recently stopped?
Are there any other electrical things that are also not working?

yea, it definitely requires more info. What does it do when you push the remote start button? Does it do anything at all? With it being aftermarket, there could be hundreds of things wrong with the wiring and would be nearly impossible to diagnose via an online forum.

And as far as the electrical there is a few things wrong but I'm not sure if that's what's effecting the auto start

Sometimes one issue can manifest itself by affecting multiple systems, which is why I asked.

We have a lot of info here on Pontiac Vibes and its Toyota Matrix twin, but not a lot on a G6, and since a Pontiac Vibe is basically a Toyota, it will not have a lot in common with a G6. You might get better info at a G6 forum, a quick google turned up https://www.g6ownersclub.com/ which may be related to the facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/G6ownersclub/
